This week, we saw the launch of Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5 and Xiaomi Mi 5 series at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016, Barcelona. But, HTC, probably fearing its flagship phone being overlooked at the cramped international consumer electronics trade fair, instead launched the mid-range Desire 825, 630 and 530 at MWC 2016.
Now, the Taiwan-based smartphone-maker has released a teaser on Twitter hinting it will unveil the 2016 flagship phone in a separate event soon.
In the teaser, we see a phone's chamfered metal frame with caption-"#powerof10", almost confirming that the rumoured marquee phone will be called "One M10".
[Note: The company has been using the One M (M7 in 2013, M8 in 2015 and M9 in 2015) moniker for its high-end devices.]
There is no official word on when the company will announce the new device, but the release of the teaser image certainly indicates the launch event is not too far, and probably in early March.
HTC One M10: What we know so far
From what we have gathered, the upcoming HTC One M10 is internally known as "Perfume". It is said to boast a 5.2-inch QHD (2,560x1,440p) display and run the Android Marshmallow OS, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB/128GB inbuilt storage (with an option for expansion via micro SD card).
It is also expected to house a 12MP Sony IMX377 camera with a 1.55um lens, laser autofocus and PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus). And on the front, it comes packed with Samsung's 5MP UltraPixel (s5k4e6) camera.
