Another day, and yet another leak. But this time, it relates to the HTC’s upcoming flagship, the One M10, which is also known by its codename, Perfume. A few hours ago, we learnt from serial leaker @evleaks that the M10 would hit US retail stores the week of May 9th, with the smartwatch being available some weeks before. Now we have some details about the handset’s cameras, more of which after the break.
HTC Perfume "UltraPixels": Main Camera – Sony IMX377 12MP 1.55um + Laser Autofocus + PDAF Front Camera – Samsung s5k4e6 5MP UltraPixel
@LlabTooFer is the source of this latest leak, detailing the specifications of both the front and rear-facing cameras featured on the HTC handset. As you can see from the tweet above, it would appear that the HTC One M10’s rear camera has a Sony manufactured 12MP sensor (IMX377) using UltraPixel technology, Laser-AutoFocus is also present, and the sensor is 1.55um. The front camera is of Samsung origin (s5k4e6), with a 5MP sensor that is also using UltraPixel technology.
Other rumours include the HTC One M10 losing a logo from the front of the device, which will hopefully result in thinner bezels. The M10 is expected to feature a 5.2-inch display, with some regions getting Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 powered M10’s, and others getting a MediaTek powered version.
Unlike last year with the M9, HTC isn’t going to run the risk of the M10 being overshadowed by the Samsung Galaxy S7 launch at MWC, instead, the Taiwanese manufacturer is said to be holding a separate event after MWC 2016.
