The HTC One M10 will allegedly skip MWC 2016, might get unveiled in March at a dedicated event
In the past few weeks, the LG G5 and the Samsung Galaxy S7, two of the major upcoming flagships from the Android camp have often surfaced online through leaks and rumors. As such, the complete lack of unofficial information regarding the upcoming HTC flagship, a device expected to be called the HTC One M10 comes as a curiosity. As it turns out, however, one new rumor claims that the reason why we haven't heard much about the HTC One M10 is that the device was delayed.

According to a new rumor originating in China, high-ranking HTC officials have sent back multiple prototypes proposed by the hardware design team. After a few years of iterative designs, it looks like HTC is about to bring out a completely redesigned flagship. HTC previously said that upcoming M-series phones will draw some inspiration from the HTC One A9, but the extent of this similarity is currently unknown.

The source of the rumor claims that HTC had previously planned to formally introduce the One M10 in late February at MWC 2016 in Barcelona, but that this is not going to happen following the setbacks that the company encountered with crafting the appropriate design. We're already confident that both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the LG G5 will be announced at the 2016 edition of the Mobile World Congress.

Allegedly, HTC will unveil the One M10 in March at a dedicated event while the commercial launch of the HTC One M10 is said to follow in April.

At this point, we don't have too much information regarding the specs of the HTC One M10, but this new rumor says that we should expect to see a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, a 23 MP rear camera, a fingerprint scanner, and a 3,000 mAh battery. Furthermore, the HTC One M10 is said to come with IP68-certified dust and water resistance, which make the M10 the first water resistant phone in the M series.

HTC knows that the M10, at MWC, won't make a significan hype, since Samsung and other Brands will make HTC unnoticeeable.

OMG 23MP camera, they haven´t got learned from last mistakes with camera at all. HTC is not good at software processing, I don´t believe they can get such high amount of pixels under control :((

And more megapixels means more complex image image processing! HTC's image processing algoritm can't impress with a 4MP, 13MP and 20MP sensor... then it'll be even worse with a 23MP one, since more MP produces more noise, hence more hardwork is needed to be done in coding the camera algorithm.

JUST MAKE THE BEZELS SLIMMER! Seriously HTC, your phones look great and your software is great too, just bring out a phone with slim bezels!! Something like the M7 with a near edge to edge display. Who would not love that??

Hope they learnt their lesson with using Toshiba, they must realize they are not Nokia.

Can't wait. Hopefully htc won't screw up this time. They had lost their direction last year to the point that I preferred the m8 I sold compared to the m9 I have now

HTC should ditch the on-screen buttons and use capacitive buttons instead. Just don't use physical buttons like the Samsung, which is ugly!

I hope they improve their camera stabilisation, use OIS or something. That's my main fault with my M9.

"the first water resistant phone in HTC's entire history." Seriously, how can writers from PA be clueless that much? HTC Butterfly series have always been water and dust resistance for almost 4 years. The legendary original Butterfly that firstly brought 1080p resolution to smartphone (Droid DNA in US) was released with water and dust resistance body even before Sony released their first Xperia Z.

Actually the Desire eye was htc's first water resistant handset.

How come?? The original butterfly which had water resistance feature was released in 2012. Butterfly S in 2013. Even Butterfly 2 was released 3 months ahead of Desire Eye in 2014. Lol https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTC_Butterfly

There's no hype about new phone this year and this is a good thing.I honestly believe that next HTC flagship will be a real beast on every field! Beast from the East!!
