HTC will reportedly release their new flagship unit HTC One M10 during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 in Barcelona, Spain in late February. The new flagship will reportedly be called HTC Perfume and will have Android 6.0 Marshmallow onboard.

The Taiwanese tech company started the tradition of launching flagship models at MWC events since 2013, with HTC One M7 first launched in the same year, reports Master Herald. Apart from the operating system update, the HTC phone will also feature the company’s Sense UI version 8.0.

According to rumour mills, the HTC One M10 will sport a 5-inch screen with 4K or 2K resolution display. The phone may also include a 27MP rear sensor camera packed with a phase detection, auto-focus technology. Taking selfies is the current trend, so expect a bigger camera unit positioned at the front of the upcoming HTC model.

According to an unofficial HTCM10One blog, the phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s 82X with 3.X GHz octa-core processor, which ensures performance at lightning speed. As of now, the Qualcomm 820 chipset is undergoing early sample manufacturing stage. It will be given a go signal once it passes the testing procedures. A massive 3,500 mAH battery in the HTC One M10 is expected to boost its power.

Other rumoured features of the device include two powerful stereo speakers, a heart rate sensor and a touch ID scanner (fingerprint). Expect new designs for the device with dustproof and waterproof certification.

The biggest question is whether the HTC One M10 will have BoomSound speakers. The tech company removed the speakers in its predecessor, the One A9. Instead, the company used high-quality DAC headphones. However, with new design change plans for the M10, the company may enhance the size of the phone with BoomSound speakers included, says Pocket-Lint.

The M10 price could range between US$650 (approx. AU$905) and US$800 (approx. AU$1,114), says the unofficial HTCM10One blog.
