HTC One M10 rumored to have a 5.2-inch WQHD display
If the recent @Evleaks tweets are anything to go by, then the flagship HTC One M9 successor may be a departure from earlier designs. Potential changes include the implementation of a fingerprint reader on the front of the device and the removal of the HTC logo from the face. The front-facing speakers may also be relocated as the grilles are no longer visible from the front.
New rumors are claiming a screen size of 5.2-inches, which conflict with earlier reports of a slightly smaller 5.1-inch display. Users behind @LlabTooFer have tweeted that the HTC Perfume, otherwise known as the One M10, will ship with a 5.2-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution display. If so, this would put the smartphone more in line with current flagships where resolutions above 1080p are becoming the norm.
Other core specifications include 4 GB RAM, 32 GB eMMC, and the new Snapdragon 820 SoC. HTC will likely continue with its Sense UI based off of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
The Taiwanese manufacturer recently announced its 2015 financial results to poor reception. Sales were nearly cut in half compared to 2014 and the company reported an immense yearly loss.
