HTC announces April 12 event - the One M10 (or simply HTC 10) will be unveiled then
In the last few weeks, HTC has been building hype around its upcoming flagship smartphone, which will likely be called HTC 10 (thus ditching the One M name). Today, the company confirmed that it's going to host a press event on April 12 - when the new smartphone will finally be announced.

As you can see in the image below, the April 12 event will be held in three locations (New York, London, and Taipei). HTC says that it's "obsessed in a good way" - presumably with making the best phone you've ever had. Of course, it remains to be seen just how good the One M10 will be.

Until now, we've seen plenty of images allegedly showing the HTC 10, all of which suggest that the handset borrows design elements from the One A9, and, to a lesser extent, also from the One M9.

The HTC 10 should come with "world first, world class, front and back" cameras, Android Marshmallow, and a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super LCD 5 display. Reportedly powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 processor, the next-gen flagship smartphone should further feature a fingerprint scanner, 4 GB of RAM, up to 64 GB of internal memory, and a 3000 mAh battery. The handset will be offered in multiple color variants, though it's not clear exactly when HTC is planning to start selling it. In any case, we'll be here to let you know all about the HTC 10 as soon as more details arrive.

I've got the LG G5 on pre-order, but don't know whether to risk seeing if this is going to be worth waiting for... I don't want to loose my place or the pre-order bonuses, and I'll kick myself if this turns out to be no good for me and I've cancelled the LG. Perhaps I'll have to just keep the G5 in it's box for a week (yeah right!) while I wait to see what HTC has, so I can send it back if need be....

Two months later, your G5 will be sold on a half price. LG phones lose their value very rapidly, and they almost have the worst reselling value despite they are really good phones!

Every phone loses the value after using it for sometime. If you are concerned about the resale value, You should buy an iPhone. iPhones loses the resale value by merely 5% - 10% for about 6 months time frame, while android phones loses the value by 25% - 30%.

The camera better be good. Would love if HTC surprised us with an AMOLED display like the early rumours said.

Ugly back. Chamfered back phones are disgusting. Ugly like the G5. The M7 is sexy.

I don't mind if this phone is not good.but,waiting for htc phones, every year, means we always hope for the best from them. If it's not good this time, we still hope the next will be better.

It looks like iPhones and Galaxies had an orgy and produced the phone of the Anti-Christ.

had m7,good combo including design and specs (with not taking camera into consideration as it was their frist attempt with the so-called ultra pixel tec) had m9, god i just could'nt tolerate it,serious battery drain,unfixable wifi,and for the third time in a row a crappy camera. Now M10 or 10 or what ever the hell it's gonna be called, it has to be smth phenomenal in order to clean this mess otherwise i'll giveup on HTC

I want to get excited but if it looks exactly like the renders show it will be a no go to me. If I wanted a Samsung look alike, I'l buy a Samsung,,, which will never happen. I'l stick with my M9.

What everyone seems to forget is that a successful successor device needs to have all the great technology available in the market that can be packaged together. The reason the M9 didn't do well is because it ran hot initially, the camera was poor, and had no Image Stabilization, and it did NOT have a biometric reader of some type that is needed for future secure commerce transactions. Note though that any company that removes a great feature like front-facing STEREO speakers from an existing product on its next iteration has engineers with mushy brains. If this ends up being true, then it's likely that the "Perfume" phone will be another weak seller, like its predecessor. Even Samsung brought back a microSD slot on the Galaxy S7. There are NO good reasons to remove the stereo speakers. Right? One keeps improving, not removing good stuff. Time will soon tell us how mushy those brains are. The Galaxy S7 Edge is the way to go till some company can create a follow up flagship device with FF stereo speakers. If smartphone users think that stereo speakers should not be part of their multi-media experience when using the device, then they should ask themselves, “would they buy a TV without stereo speakers - like it was in the 70s - great mono sound?” If you added speakers to your TV, would you face the speakers towards your couch, or would you face them to the side or back walls? If the smartphone plays back HD video, then the smartphone should play back stereo sound. It just makes sense. Of course, both large and small multi-media smart devices should also have jacks for earplugs or headphones when privacy is required. This just makes sense too. Right? I also watch youTube videos on my M9. I hold up my phone and watch different types of clips with it, while I'm lying down. Those FF stereo speakers make a huge difference. I can watch John Oliver (Last Week Tonight) clips in HD, and the stereo sound is awesome. My next portable computer (which will just happen to make phone calls as well) MUST have stereo sound (without accessories), and if HTC does not offer it in a few years, then I'll be buying someone else's smart multimedia personal assistant device. Boomsound is just some hardware and software inside the device (and more importantly it's a marketing term). It has nothing to do with where sound exits the device. In my opinion, the engineers had it right, when they designed the exits so that the direction of the sound waves moved forward and hit your face, and a strong pleasing stereo effect was achieved by having the sound exit from both sides of the screen when you held it in landscape mode, as if you were watching a small LED flat screen TV. So, I believe Stereo FF speakers are just as necessary as a colour display.

A night photo with a bright room. hTC must be obsessed with the Ultrapixel camera module. Let's see if the low-light shot of M10 can match the mighty S7. If yes, hTC worths to be back in the group of the top smartphone manufacturers.
