HTC One M10 (Perfume) said to come with 5.1-inch QHD AMOLED display, 12MP Ultrapixel camera
Before we dive into the details, let it be mentioned that we cannot confirm the validity of this leak. However, Blass has a long history of spot-on reporting, so let's check out his claims.
The source quoted by evleaks also claims that the HTC One M10 "Perfume" will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM. These are far from being surprising details given that all previous HTC One M flagships made use of Qualcomm's latest and greatest (at the time of their launch) and that most 2016 flagships are expected to come with 4GB of RAM. The phone is also said to come with 32GB of microSD-expandable internal storage.
Previously, we've heard that the Asian variant of the M10 Perfume will come with a MediaTek chipset, but this was not specified by this new report.
In the imaging department, a traditional Achille's heel for HTC's previous flagships, the source claims that the M10 "Perfume" will feature an Ultrapixel sensor, which is HTC's marketing term for a sensor with very large pixels. Previously, HTC's Ultrapixel sensors were only capable of a 4MP resolution, but, this time around, the company is said to have boosted the resolution all the way up to 12MP. Also, the camera is said to offer lightning-fast laser-based autofocus.
According to the same source, the HTC One M10 will ditch the Boomsound stereo speakers on the front, which have been a marquee feature for previous HTC One M smartphones. This may come as a disappointment for some, but it does give us hope that the handset will come with slimmer bezels compared to its direct predecessors. On the other hand, the handset is said to come with a fingerprint sensor embedded in a physical home button, which means that we shouldn't expect an LG G4-like front-to-screen ratio.
This new rumor appears to confirm the fact that the HTC One M10 "Perfume" will skip MWC 2016, with the official unveiling allegedly planned for a later date.
