Report: HTC M10 to offer QHD display, fingerprint scanner, Snapdragon 820

HTC is preparing to pull out all the stops with the HTC One M10 smartphone, according to a report from a notorious smartphone leak artist.

Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) writing for VentureBeat, has received information suggesting the M10 will the the Taiwanese company’s most advanced handset yet.

According to a source who claims to have gone hands on with the device, the HTC One M10 will serve up multiple firsts for the company.

It’ll be the first mainstream HTC release to offer a QHD AMOLED display, following the 1080p screens on the M8 and M9 flagships.

Also, HTC is reportedly planning to integrate a fingerprint sensor into the new home button, belatedly beefing up the range’s security.

The M10 will also boast an impressive 4GB of RAM to complement the presence of the brand new Snapdragon 820 processor from Qualcomm and the Adreno 530 graphics chip.

In terms of the camera, the source claimed HTC will include a 12-ultrapixel camera, this time with a laser-assisted autofocus. That will see HTC return to the technology it pioneered in the M8 but ditched for the M9, which had a 20-megapixel camera.

However, while improvements seem to be across the board, the company plans to ditch the front-facing BoomSound speakers at the top and bottom of the device, according to the report.

According to the source, HTC doesn’t plan to show off the One M10 at next month’s MWC 2016, as we also reported last week, but will hold off and host an event at a later date.


The One 10 is hugely important to the firm, as it seeks to revive flagging smartphone sales. Would these rumoured specs be enough for you to give HTC another shot in 2016? Share your thoughts below.
