First HTC One M10 photo leaks out: no resemblance to the One M9

Not long after we heard that the upcoming One M10 (aka Perfume) might not have that peculiar HTC-branded black bar below its display, we can now take a look at what appears to be the very first image of HTC's next-gen flagship smartphone.

Posted today on Twitter by @evleaks, said image shows a device that kind of resembles the One A9 (just as rumored). The HTC-branded bar is indeed gone, so it seems that this will be the first HTC One flagship not to have it, thus looking quite different from its successors: HTC One, HTC One M8, and HTC One M9.

UPDATE: You can check out an enhanced version of the image here. It reveals more details.

Besides not having an HTC-branded black bar, the One M10 features a rounded home button which, just like on the A9, probably includes a fingerprint scanner.

According to recent rumors, the One M10 has a 5.1-inch AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor aided by 4 GB of RAM. 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 12 MP UltraPixel rear camera with laser auto focus should also be on board. All in all, the handset will be significantly more advanced than the One M9 (which features a 1080p display, a Snapdragon 810 processor, and only 3 GB of RAM).

Since @evleaks usually reveals images that show real upcoming devices, we're inclined to believe that what we're seeing above is indeed the HTC One M10. The new handset could be officially announced sometime in March. What do you think: does it look better than the One M9?

You hate everyone saying apple copies htc, now you are saying htc copied apple. Yup, you are really no different from fandroids.

How the hell can you say it's slim or thick?

Used m7 before, it was their best flagship in my opinion. If these spec leaks are real with that htc black bar elimination then htc is getting to the right track. 12mp camera sounds like they're using samsung's britecell sensor. Apple might sue htc for the design then lose because htc was the real pioneer for that metal finish.

That's what makes Sony Xperia Z a Sony Xperia Z. While it's not super comfortable like rounded edge design, it's super elegant and unique. Xperia Zx design is like driving Ferrari 488 vs Galaxy S6 design Aston Martin DBS. They both have their flaws and goods, you just have to pick and choose.

Where is the uniqueness and elegantness of Xperia designs? All I can see is a brick with a screen on it. Please enligth me! And do not compare those beautiful products with any European crappy cars, please!

You don't need to be enlightened, you get just need taste.

Yeah, wall brick is elegant...

I'd argue it's the reverse. Xperia has the classy, understated design of an Aston Martin while Samsung has the flashier, more in your face Ferrari look. It's a matter of taste I guess.

They look thinner than the current iPhone and the One M9 so that's win in my book.

Optical illusion. If you'll see the device in actual it might be small. Don't just rely on one picture, wait for the official release.

Read this article it is a ORIGINAL SOURCE and it's said : Externally, the device’s appearance may still be subject to change, according to the person who used it. Therefore they were unwilling to comment in depth about its aesthetics.

yeah such ugly .. why always pathetic renders are so nice and then real is so disappointing

Hopefully it gets the screen from the S6. Same size, same resolution. And it should be discounted since it's from last season. I think this phone could be great, though. I personally like Apple hardware (who doesn't like the A-series SoCs?) and Android software. Samsung, LG, HTC and Sony will have to fight for my money this year!

It is a bummer. The front looks like a Meizu phone, and just when I was about to jump to a smartphone with front stereo speakers, HTC went on to ditch them. With the S7 having that stupid glass back, and now this, it looks like the M9+ Supreme Camera edition will be my next phone.

Why don't you try the Nexus 6P? Might be a good choice for you

The reason why I am getting rid of the Note 5 is the size. I want to move back to a 5"-5.2" smartphone for good this time.
