Although the rumor mill has been churning about HTC’s 2016 flagship, we haven’t had much firm information on the One M10. That is, until today. A leaked photograph purported to be the front of the One M10 has surfaced, and it looks quite a bit like the One A9.
The One A9 caught some flak from design hounds back when it was released, with many complaining that it riffed so hard off Apple that it practically looked like an iPhone clone. If the image we’re looking at is indeed the One M10, then those same voices are going to be grousing again.
There’s no HTC logo on the front of this device, and it looks like the company has ditched the black bar that has haunted the One M series. An elongated, oval shaped home button rests on the bottom of the device, and there’s speculation that it’s also a fingerprint scanner. The volume and power buttons are housed on the right side of the phone, and the power button looks pleasantly ridged like the edge of a coin, which should make it immediately identifiable with a brush of the fingertip.
What we’re not seeing is the second front-facing speaker below the display, so that might mean that BoomSound speakers aren’t going to be making the cut on this model. All in all, this looks fairly in line with what we were expecting from the One M10. Solid metal construction and what looks like a 5.1-inch QHD AMOLED display. Under the hood, the device is rumored to run the Snapdragon 820 chipset, 32 GB of storage, and 4 gigs of RAM. We’re still expecting a microSD card slot for additional memory, and a 12 MP UltraPixel rear camera.
