In the image, the rumoured Perfume smartphone looks strikingly similar to the HTC One A9, which launched last year. This is not surprising, as the company last year had revealed its intentions to bring the One A9's design philosophy to other phones in its M and Desire series. The biggest noticeable difference in the One M10 however is the large front camera sensor.
Much like the One A9, the Perfume aka One M10 is seen to sport a home button right below the display. The fingerprint scanner is also said to be embedded into the home button. In the leaked image, the volume rocker and home button are seen placed on the right panel. Corroborating an earlier leak, the One M10 in the image is seen to be ditching the dual front speakers powered by BoomSound.
Based on preliminary leaks, HTC Perfume aka One M10 is expected to run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with HTC's Sense UI skinned on top. The handset is said to feature a 5.1-inch screen and will be the first flagship smartphone to sport QHD (1440x2560 pixels) resolution. The Perfume is also said to pack Amoled display. The HTC Perfume is widely expected to pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with Adreno 530 GPU. Blass, citing a person who spent some time with a prototype of the handset, added that it will feature 4GB of RAM and will include 32GB inbuilt storage. The HTC Perfume is also rumoured to come with microSD card support.
For the camera, HTC is said to use a 12-UltraPixel camera on the back of the One M10 aka Perfume. The biggest highlight of the camera is its laser-assisted autofocus feature. The front (sensor not detailed) and rear camera are said to sport OIS (optical image stabilisation). Unlike previous flagships, the Perfume smartphone is rumoured to ditch the dual BoomSound powered speakers.
An earlier report claimed that HTC may opt not to launch its next flagship at the MWC event in Barcelona.
