HTC One M10 in white smiles for the camera in fresh leak

To the right, an alleged leaked photo of the white HTC One M10 that has made its way online earlier today.

With MWC just around the corner, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the LG G5 appear to be getting all the pre-event attention, but courtesy of infamous blogger Evan Blass, the HTC One M10 'Perfume' might just steal some of today's spotlight, for better or worse.

Blass was also behind what appears to be our best look at the HTC One M10. A couple of weeks ago, the leakster posted an image of what he claims to be the black version of the phone, one that's said to be referred to as 'Perfume' internally. 

The two versions of the phone do appear to be the same device. However, since both photos come from the same leakster, we can't take this new leaked image as confirmation of the design. Also, even if these two photos are of the real One M10, they leave us completely in the dark when it comes to the sides and the back of the phone. 

HTC previously confirmed that its upcoming flagship will take design hints from the mid-range One A10, and with the previous handsets in the series adopting minute design variations, it's easy to see why design will be such an important aspect of the One M10. 

In terms of hardware, the upcoming HTC One M10 is expected to land with specs that include a 5.2-inch display - perhaps of the AMOLED kind - with a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels, a Snapdragon 820 SoC, as well as a 12MP primary camera with large pixels.

The One M10, which may actually end up being commercialized under a different name, is said to be unveiled in March and then launched in the US at some point May.

What if it has a speaker at the bottom next to the usb and use it with the earpiece for stereo sound?

"black version of the phone (...) The two versions of the phone do appear to be the same device" The main button is different, the dark looking sensor above the earpiece of the white is missing on the black, there are no side buttons on the white etc And the picture of this white looks weird, more like a render.

It has been known for a while that they went full retard and ditched the boomspeakers. Glad I didn't wait and went ahead and got an A9, this looks exactly like it with bumped up specs.

I honestly don't miss the boomsound speakers on my A9. Don't get me wrong, they were great, but the audio I get from headphones is absolutely fantastic on the A9 and my personal usage has me using those far more.

But you can't deny the fact that the A9 has one of the weakest speakers on a modern smartphone. I wish HTC would give us a few speaker modes, like this is my only gripe on this phone. I absolutely love it, but the tiny speaker is a bit of a let down for me.

What if HTC's reason for delaying the M10 is because they actually have 2 or 3 designs in mind? It could be possible that these leaks are an attempt to see what everyone's true reactions would be to drastic changes. Then, after getting our true opinions, they go with the design that best meets what the market wants. It also gives them a bit of time to see the market's reaction to Samsung and LG's new phones and then adapt changes to the M10 before a final release. HTC never said front facing speakers were gone. Everything right now is pure speculation based on a very low quality, blurry image of a phone that may or may not be the M10. The media and bloggers have all been sheep following these rumors. All it is at this point is thin air. No substance or fact or proof. I think if HTC is really holding out and allowing these leaks or even feeding these leaks to get our true reactions, then it is a clever idea. Dangerous, but clever. People may make up their minds before even seeing the "real" M10 and go with Samsung or LG based on leaks and speculation. Shame on them for being foolish. At least wait for an OFFICIAL image from HTC of the M10 before making a choice. I will wait for the real M10.

Impossible due to them having to mass produce the phone ahead of the launch date. And as with all major OEMs releasing their flagships, it's usually less than a month after announcement.

Almost GS4. It's longer a little bit at the bottom. GS4 still rocks.

It looks like they were inspired by Apple with a little Samsung thrown in.
