HTC One M10 launch delayed until after MWC, apparently


HTC One M9

This year's Mobile World Congress tradeshow is fast approaching, and with it we’re expecting a veritable smorgasbord of new smartphones – except one, perhaps…

HTC is skipping over MWC 2016 for the launch of its long-rumoured HTC One M10.

The Taiwanese technology giant is plotting a post MWC launch, according to Chinese technology site ITHome.

MWC is one of the world’s biggest technology tradeshows, and is set to run from February 22 to 25 this year.

The outlet reports that HTC actually plans to unveil its new wares at a dedicated launch event in March.

But the HTC One M10 won’t actually be available in stores until April, if the source is to be believed.

The rumour mill suggests HTC did originally plan for an MWC launch, but had to postpone thanks to delays in designing the HTC One M10.

The new handset is tipped to feature a Snapdragon 820 chip, a fingerprint scanner, a 23-megapixel camera, and a 3,000mAh battery.

What’s more, the HTC One M10 is also rumoured to be completely waterproof, which would be a first for the company’s flagship smartphone series.

Of course, we can’t verify any of the information, so take this report with a pinch of salt.

I'm 'upgrading' my phone next week; from an S5. But looking around, what real point is there in getting a flagship phone now?

- A slightly improved camera - which will stick suck compared to even a modest actual camera.
- A faster processor - you likely won't use unless you're gaming.
- A bigger battery - which will be eaten by the larger processor anyway and will still need to be replaced after a year.

Am I missing something?
