HTC is set to reveal a new smartphone by the end of the month. These claims come from famous leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks) and are further made credible with HTC’s teaser image earlier. It seems like the phone may be the HTC One X10, the successor to the company’s One X9.
The leak today details the specifications of the upcoming device. It is said to be powered by the Helio P10 SoC and will feature a 5.5-inch Full HD touchscreen display. The primary camera is a 16.3MP unit while the front sensor comes at 7.9MP, both of which are upgrades over the One X9.
However, the 3GB of RAM and available on-board storage remain identical to the predecessor. In fact, the One X9 came with a more powerful Helio X10 processor suggesting this might not be a direct refresh to the One X9. While it doesn’t suggest an improvement, the design has certainly changed and the fingerprint scanner is a nice touch.
In addition to the One X10, the Taiwanese company is set to launch two more smartphones before the end of March. The first seems to be code named Ocean Note which will allegedly offer a curved screen and a much improved camera. HTC looks to be aiming to fill the gap the Note7 has left since its demise with this high end phablet. The other smartphone is obviously the successor to the company’s current flagship, the HTC 10.
With HTC having a lot to prove this year, it will be very interesting to see the strategy they adopt. The Taiwanese firm may have a complete redesign up their sleeves for their future flagship but the X10 is definitely not one. Would you buy the X10 if it is priced appropriately?
