Amid speculations that HTC's upcoming flagship smartphone could be unveiled in March at a special event, a fresh report has claimed that it will hit stores in April and has even revealed the possible date.

Interestingly, nobody is sure of the name of the One M9 successor but it has been dubbed as the One M10 and HTC Perfume. Now, popular leakster Evan Blass @evleaks has claimed in a tweet that the device will be named HTC 10.

The same source also said that the HTC 10 will be launched April 19.

However, it may be mentioned that HTC is yet to confirm the release date of its upcoming next-generation smartphone.
