HTC One M9 successor will have a powerful camera
Whether or not HTC will even call its next flagship the One M10 is not currently known. So far, the rumored HTC Perfume has been referred to as the successor to the current One M9. CNet recently sat down with HTC CEO Cher Wang and CFO Chialin Chang for an interview to discuss about the Taiwanese manufacturer's next flagship.
Both HTC reps carefully avoided naming the unannounced device directly, though Chialin boasted confidence about its "compelling camera experience". This was after HTC had time to check out the competition at this year's MWC 2016, so the manufacturer now knows exactly what it will be up against for the rest of the year. HTC decided late last year to skip a flagship announcement at MWC 2016 and is expected to hold its own press event in the coming weeks instead.
It's unlikely that the Samsung Galaxy S7 or LG G5 will have much to worry about from HTC. Nonetheless, the manufacturer has made it clear that camera quality will be one of the major selling points for the upcoming One M9 successor. This is compared to the current camera on the One M9, which we found to be below average especially for a flagship smartphone.
