Earlier this month, we got our first peek at the HTC One M10, HTC’s upcoming Android flagship. Now we’re getting a second look at the device, but this time around it’s donned some different duds.
Evan Blass has shared a photo that shows the HTC One M10 in white, and the phone looks quite a bit like the One M10 that leaked a couple of weeks ago. We can see a front-facing camera, earpiece up top, some antenna breaks on the sides, and a lack of any front speakers or HTC branding. There’s also a fingerprint reader at the bottom of the M10’s front, but this one looks to be thinner and longer than the one on the One M10 that was previously leaked. This new fingerprint reader actually looks closer to the one found on past HTC phones, like the One A9 and One M9+.

The HTC One M10 is rumored to be scheduled for an early May launch in the US. It’s expected to pack many features that you’d expect from an Android flagship in 2016, like a 2560x1440 display resolution (the screen is said to measure 5.1 inches), a Snapdragon 820 processor, and 4GB of RAM. We’ve also been told to expect 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, and a 12-UltraPixel rear camera. And yes, it’s said that the One M10 will launch without the front-facing BoomSound speakers that the past three One M flagships have had.
If the One M10 leaks end up being accurate, it could be please some folks and frustrate others. On the one hand, HTC would be giving customers a high-res display, and it’d also be listening to the folks that’ve complained about the front “HTC” logo taking up too much space on past One M phones. However, there will probably be more than a few people that’ll disappointed by the M10’s lack of front-facing speakers.
What do you make of these leaked HTC One M10 units? Are you excited for HTC’s next flagship or are the rumors of missing front-facing speakers bumming you out?
