Latest flagship from HTC is rumoured to be announced tomorrow

HTC’s latest smartphone has apparently leaked early ahead of a suspected release this week.

The HTC M10, which is the company’s next flagship device, was revealed in a leaked screenshot on Chinese social media site Weibo that reveals the smartphone will be officially launched tomorrow, following the company’s teasing of a “#powerof10” tag in recent weeks.

Available in both black and white and featuring an all-metal body, the HTC M10 is the company’s latest attempt to regain its struggling share of the smartphone market.

HTC has not yet responded to requests for comment about the video.

Flashy

using mobile appsThe photos reveal that HTC is set to promote the audio playback qualities of the M10 as it looks to target multimedia-savvy consumers.

As usual, the device will feature HTC’s trademark BoomSound speakers, but these will be boosted with technology provided by premium sound experts Bang & Olufsen, as the video promises that the M10 will offer “the highest-quality sound possible” and “flawless high fidelity on your phone.”

The company has also promised a powerful camera in the M10, although the video gave little away. It’s more than likely that the device will come packing two separate 12MP rear lenses that are able to combine and provide incredibly detailed and colourful images, alongside a souped-up front camera that is ideal for selfies.

There’s no concrete information on the hardware specifications of the device, but if it’s anything like its competitors in the high-end mobile market, expect a 5.2in Full HD display powered by the likes of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage expandable via microSD.

Software-wise, the M10 will come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow covered with HTC’s own Sense UI, allowing it to offer some of its own specialised apps alongside Google’s offerings.

There’s no information yet on pricing or release dates, but TechWeekEurope will be following for news tomorrow.
