HTC One M10 Frontal Image Leaks, Resembles The iPhone
A new front image has been leaked, showing off what is said to be the HTC M10 or HTC Perfume as it is currently being called internally. The leak reveals some major design changes that seem to follow the footsteps of the One A9, which was introduced in October of the previous year. The A9 was heavily criticized to look like an iPhone. Hence, we all know where the design initially comes from. Nonetheless, HTC has finally chopped off the front-facing HTC logo that was hated universally.
The HTC One M10 Looks Like An iPhone Clone
The image has been leaked by a notorious leaker, Evan Blass or @evleaks, which is a pretty credible source. By the look of it, the HTC M10 looks neat without the HTC branding attached. The display is only interrupted by an oval shaped Home button, speaker and a front-facing camera. However, if the M10 reinforces rumors that it will feature design changes similar to the A9, then it could be that the Home button would act as a fingerprint sensor instead of a simple button that you would physically press.
Previous rumors from Evan Blass stated that the HTC One M10 will feature the UltraPixel technology in its camera. The UltraPixel technology was first seen in HTC’s One M8 smartphone. Most likely, the M10 will feature a 12-UltraPixel camera. The HTC brand logo is not the only thing that is eliminated from the front. It looks like the M10 has also lost its BoomSound speakers. Apparently, these dual BoomSound speakers were a trademark of the HTC M-series. However, we can see an unusually large speaker grill on the upper side of the handset.
We can also see a much larger front facing camera sensor along with an LED indicator. From the sides, the leaked HTC M10 image seems to show the weird antenna lines we see on the iPhone 6. Moreover, we can also see the screen and how the metal blends together as one. However, it is still unclear how the back of the M10 looks like. We will probably hear more on this from Blass.
The M10 internals constitute of a 5.1-inch QHD display with the latest Snapdragon 820 processor, 32GB of internal storage, 4GB RAM and supports for microSD card slot. The smartphone will be officially released in the MWC later this month in a dedicated press event. So let’s see how HTC has redesigned its 2016 flagship and what more features are said to be added.
This is it for now, folks. What do you think about the leaked image? Do you think it looks similar to the iPhone 6? Share your views in the comments.
