HTC One M10 Perfume to offer three internal storage options

HTC One M10 Perfume to offer three internal storage options
Yesterday, HTC teased its next-generation flagship smartphone, suggesting that it's almost ready to officially announce it (this should happen sometime in March). Most likely, the new handset will be called One M10, despite the fact that a recent rumor suggested otherwise.

According to HTC ROM developer LlabTooFeR (known for providing accurate info in the past), the One M10, aka HTC Perfume, is expected to have three internal memory options, depending on market: 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB. We assume that the US will get the 32 GB and 64 GB variants, while the 16 GB model is made for emerging markets.

HTC itself didn't reveal much about the upcoming handset, though it did suggest that this is going to be a powerful device - probably thanks to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 processor. A MediaTek-based variant of the handset may also exist (again, this should be market dependable).

At launch, the HTC One M10 should run Android Marshmallow with the yet-to-be-announced Sense 8.0 UI on top. Other rumored features include a 12 MP rear camera (which will try to challenge the 12 MP rear camera of Samsung's Galaxy S7), fingerprint scanner, and 4 GB of RAM. It's said that the One M10 will only hit the market in May. At the moment, though, we can't confirm any of this.

Why 16 GB if the M9 started at 32?

Emerging markets, same reason as the mediatek SoC. Cheaper, so they can still get sales

Exactly, this is the point. HTC is already expensive than Samsung and LG without any extra benefit. If it contains IMX377 sensor of Nexus, then I think it would out perform S7 and G5 in camera. But camera software is not a specialty of HTC, which might ruin the great sensor.

Even the G4 outperforms G5 in camera. LG itself said they didn't consider camera worth upgrading as quality was good enough already.

Until we see real camera comparisons I'd say you are assuming the g4 outperformed the G5.. The LG hate is strong with you

We have seen the pics lol. I saw a comparison on PA itself and the s6/ iPhone beat the chap out of it. G4 is as good as s6,if not better. Good luck troll, you'll be sorry when g5's camera will turn up s**t. Even in the presentation LG said they didn't improve quality.

We don't know yet if the IMX377 sensor is better than the one used by Samsung in its Galaxy S7. Don't forget that the autofocus is going to be much faster and more accurate thanks to the Dual Pixel technology used by Samsung.

HTC extra benefit is a cleaner, near stock UI and premium build quality. Camera software on the HTC is very good, so good that Sammy decided to copy it.

But they don't make money from entry or mid range devices. In 2015 only Samsung and Apple made profits, eveyone else lost money.

They are fool people who buy flagships in emerging markets are the ones who can afford to buy even the most expensive phone in the world

There is no 16gb ufs 2.0 memory.

10. TyrionLannister unregistered

Mediatek doesn't support UFS anyway.

I just truly wish HTC would have gave this device a 5.5inch screen or even a 5.4inch one.

I agree; I'd love to have a 5.5" option. Maybe they'll come out with 2 options (M10 and M10 Plus). And if they still sell an SIM unlocked/developer edition, I think they'd have my business.

They'll have a 5.5" Nexus, that's your next device

Bad news to start with 16gb

Having options is good for people who can't afford to buy it.

If someone in an emerging market can afford a premium priced smartphone I'm sure they can afford to buy some apps too, so a 16gb is one of the stupidest things HTC could possibly do, and that's saying a lot with the catalogue of stupid they've been doing lately.
