It appears like HTC is following the footsteps of LG, Huawei, Sony, Samsung and others by entering smartwatch sector. At least that's what reports have suggested and its first wearable device could come along with the upcoming flagship device dubbed as HTC One M10.

HTC One M10 is expected to be launched in the next few months — in April, to be precise. It was earlier reported that it would see the light of day at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2016 (MWC 2016), but a report by ItHome (via Gsmdome) has claimed the unveiling event will happen in March before releasing it in April. 

Now, popular leakster Evan Blass @evleaks has claimed on Twitter while responding to a query that HTC smartwatch should be launched in mid-April. This has thrown light on the possibility of the device coming with HTC One M10. 

It may be mentioned that HTC released its One M9 in March last year. So, it sounds logical for its successor to arrive at around this time of the year. Moreover, Samsung is very likely to announce its flagship device, the Galaxy S7, and LG is also expected to unveil its G5 at the upcoming MWC 2016. Clashing with these biggies won't be a very good idea, as there are possibilities of affecting each other's business.

Nothing much has been leaked about HTC One M10, but from what we have heard so far, the device may come with a 2k-4k resolution display and IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. Under the hood, it is expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 64GB/128GB internal storage, 4GB RAM, 23MP main camera and a 3,500mAh battery.
