HTC One M10 to Debut with Plenty of Firsts in March 2016 and Redeem the Taiwanese Tech Company’s Flagship Brand!

There have been rumors that Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC would be launching its next flagship smartphone before the end of the year following the dismal showing of the HTC One M9 after it was launched in March this year. However, it seems that HTC would stay within its own launching timeline instead.

Upon its rollout to the global retail markets in April this year, the HTC One M9 did not live up to the expectations in terms of sales and ultimately consumer reception.

Because of the minimal upgrade from its predecessor from last year, the HTC One M8, the HTC One M9 experienced the same fate as the Samsung Galaxy S5 last year, when the Korean tech giant only made minimal upgrades to the Samsung Galaxy S4 the year before.

As smartphone users have now become more intelligent and discerning, current flagship devices need to be on top of their game if they are to pass the heightening standards of consumers. Any half-baked and run-off-the-mill smartphones will wear itself out in the market long before it completes its customary one-year cycle if they don’t measure up to such standards.

As early as August, there were reports that HTC would be launching another flagship smartphone to redeem the HTC One M9. However, less than a month later, the HTC One A9, also known as the HTC Aero, came out to the market. But instead of a flagship smartphone, it came out as a mid-range handset, thus officially quashing previous rumors that it is to be HTC’s next flagship smartphone.

With 2015 about to draw to a close, it seems unlikely that HTC would be launching another flagship smartphone to redeem the HTC One M9. It appears that the Taiwanese smartphone maker would just allow its current flagship smartphone to complete its customary one-year market cycle before launching its successor.

Back on track

Latest reports have it that HTC will be launching its One M10 in March next year, and would likely roll out to the global retail market a month thereafter.

Many fans of the Taiwanese smartphone maker are actually hoping that the HTC One M10 would put the company back on track in the race to become one of the world’s best smartphone makers. HTC already showed that it is one of the best handset makers in the world upon the release of its HTC One M8 flagship in March last year, notes Tech Times.

It was somehow derailed a bit with the launching of the slightly-improved HTC One M9 in March this year.

Just like Samsung, it looks like HTC has learned its lesson about launching a flagship smartphone. And it will reportedly redeem itself with the HTC One M10 that shall feature plenty of firsts and groundbreaking features to make it not only the best flagship smartphone when it comes out in the market next year, but also to put HTC back on the competition.

A hero smartphone

HTC is said to be looking at a hero smartphone to revive the company’s fortune in the smartphone business. It’s most recent release, the mid-range HTC One A9, seems to be a solid handset and the company shall reportedly build on its gains and develop the HTC One M10 better, as it will be a flagship smartphone.

Accordingly, the HTC One M10 will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, which will be a first in any smartphone, and also a groundbreaking 27-megapixel rear-facing camera, another first among flagship smartphones. There are reports that the screen display of the HTC One M10 will also sport a 4K resolution, which means it will have at least a 1440 x 2560-pixel resolution, yet another first.

The upcoming HTC flagship shall reportedly come with 4GB of RAM and a 64GB or 128GB internal storage with an option for expansion through a microSD slot.

The phone shall have a generous 3,500 mAH battery and will come out of the box with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow onboard. It shall also have a USB Type-C port, which has become a standard feature among the current flagship smartphones of today.

Another interesting report about the HTC One M10 is that it might not even be called as One M10 at all. Instead, it is to be called simply as HTC O2, based on the disclosure made by a Chinese website called MyDrivers.
