HTC appears to be seriously looking at the consumer's feedback about its products as reports have surfaced that it is not repeating the biggest mistake of the One M9 in its upcoming flagship smartphone, dubbed as the One M10 aka Perfume.
An official from HTC has confirmed that the upcoming next-generation smartphone will have a camera much superior to its predecessors.
"We can confidently say that HTC will have a very, very compelling camera experience," HTC's Chief Financial Officer Chialin Chang told Roger Cheng of CNet at the just-concluded Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. "We're making this comment after we've seen what's going on in the market."
However, Chialin Chang didn't go further into the details of "compelling camera experience" he was talking about.
Interestingly, one leakster by the name LlabTooFeR recently tweeted that the purported HTC One M10 will house a Sony IMX377 12MP main camera and a 5MP UltraPixel front-snapper. The same source claimed in another tweet that the upcoming flagship smartphone will have a 16GB, 32GB and 64GB internal memory option.
It may be mentioned that the HTC One M8 was criticised for its camera quality, despite being lauded as one of the best smartphones at that time by critics. The Taiwanese technology giant increased camera pixels of the One M9 to 20.7MP with f/2.2 and 27.8mm lens (main camera), and the front-snapper boast of a 4.1-Ultrapixel with BSI sensor, f/2.0 and 26.8mm lens, however, gadget lovers were still not impressed. So, it will be interesting to see how HTC improves the camera in HTC One M10.
The upcoming flagship device is expected to sport either a 5.1-inch or 5.2-inch QHD display with 1,440x2,560 pixels, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, house an Adreno 530 GPU and run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with HTC Sense 8.0 UI. It is also reported that the device will come packed with a 64/128GB internal storage with microSD card slot, a 4GB RAM, a 23MP main camera and a 3,500mAh battery.
