HTC One M10 leak could be our best look at the phone yet

HTC’s next flagship smartphone is rumoured to be just weeks away – is this our first real look at it?

A photo of what’s claimed to be the HTC One M10 has turned up online.

Evan Blass posted the image – which depicts an unknown smartphone front-on – to Twitter yesterday.

Blass, more commonly known as Evleaks, is a prolific tipster and journalist with a good track-record for posting accurate leaks.

Unfortunately, the leak doesn’t actually reveal much about the handset.

If this leak is legitimate, the main conclusion we can draw is that HTC is opting for a design similar to the HTC One A9 rather than the HTC One M9.

The HTC One A9 was a controversial smartphone launch, with the firm widely criticised over the handset’s design similarities to Apple’s iPhone.

HTC is expected to launch its new smartphone – should it exist – at Mobile World Congress, a technology tradeshow set to take place in Barcelona later this month.

The apparently finished build of the HTC One M10 in the leaked photograph suggests a Barcelona launch might not be too farfetched.

The device is rumoured to feature a 5.1-inch QHD display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 12-megapixel camera.

It’s also assured to run on Google’s latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system.
