HTC to launch One M10 with Snapdragon 820, Sense 8 after MWC
HTC is expected to launch its next-generation One M10 smartphone after Mobile World Congress next month, and according to one reliable tipster, it will be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 820 processor, and will have HTC’s new Sense 8 user interface pre-installed.
When HTC announced the One A9 last year, and made it clear that the iPhone clone was its new baby, the future of the One M series became a little unclear. Some felt the company may move away from it following the criticism that greeted the One M9, which was a little too much like the One M8.
But it seems HTC hasn’t given up on the more expensive flagship just yet; according to the latest rumors, the Taiwanese company is planning to launch a One M10 at a dedicated event after Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.
Reliable HTC leaker @LlabTooFer claims there will be two different variants of the One M10 — one powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor, and one powered a MediaTek chip. It’s thought the former will be available in the U.S. and Europe, while the later will be sold in Asian markets.
The One M10 is also expected to come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow pre-installed (with all the new emoji) and HTC’s new Sense 8 user interface.
