HTC isn't at the top of its game right now, what with the lukewarm reception of its latest offerings, the U Ultra
and U Play
. And let's not get into the infamously bad financial situation
the company has been in for a while – or in other words, it really needs a big winner. The company's next flagship, HTC U, still has quite some time before it's officially revealed, so until then we'll have to do with the long string of mid-rangers HTC plans to release before that.
One of them, the HTC One X10, has been missing its due date for a while now, as it was expected to launch in Q1 2017
. Today, however, we've gotten another look at the phone in a leaked press render, courtesy of Evan Blass.
This certainly looks better than what we've seen so far
– in fact, the image itself touts the device's 'big style', though judging from previous leaked images the front of the device is nothing to write home about. The biggest reveal here is the promise of a large-capacity battery, something we haven't heard of until now.
Previous rumors have suggested the following possible specs for the One X10: a 5.5-inch full HD display, a MediaTek Helio P10 chipset with 3 GB RAM, a 16 MP rear camera, and an 8 MP front one. Leaked pictures so far also show the device sporting HTC's signature metal casing, as well as a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, which is a rarity for the company. The phone will reportedly be sold in the ballpark of $300, so at least you can't accuse HTC of overpricing all
of its devices.
