HTC One M10 Specs; Screen, Processor, Camera, Battery, Concept
[AdSense-A]With just under a year left until we see the official announcement on the HTC One M10 specs, there are many rumors and leaks which give us a really good idea on the 2016 release. The specs will surely be much improved which is hard to fathom when looking at the premium quality of the M9. All aspects including the visibility, durability, speed, efficiency, and overall HTC One M10 concept will be getting an upgrade.
Below are all the details on the screen, processor, front and back camera, battery, and concept design.
The HTC One M10 screen is rumored to going away from the Gorilla Glass that we have seen in the past and is rumored to feature the higher quality Sapphire Glass. The Sapphire screen of the M10 will make it much more durable that is said to withstand the typical cracks and damage from accidental drops.
We’re hoping to see a 5.2” screen which would fully compliment the 4K resolution of 4096 x 2160. The 4K screen is possible if HTC elects to go with the octa-core processor which we are almost certain and will offer the best visual aspects seen in smartphones today.
Qualcomm has become the gold-standard of smartphone processors, and despite the rumors that many flagship manufacturers will be integrating their new brand of processors it’s not likely in the HTC One M10. We’re hearing rumors of a faster and more powerful processor with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor. Rumors suggest it will be clocked at a blazing speed of 3.5 GHZ.
Since moving to more of a conventional dual lens camera, HTC has been looking at what consumers truly use a smartphone for. The camera quality has become one of the most popular features, and the higher quality front and back M10 cameras show it.
The rear camera is believed to be 27 megapixels while the front-facing camera is rumored to sport a 10 MP snapper. Camera features rumored are optical image stabilization, auto zoom, and auto laser focus or auto focus technology with phase detection.
HTC is looking to go in a different direction with the HTC One M10 concept. The concept of both the M8 and M9 are still two of the best on the market today, but consumers need to see something different.
A slimmer, sleeker, and more rounded design is expect in the new M10 concept. We have also heard rumors of a premium metal composite that would offer dual layer protection that would ultimately increase the durability significantly.
Below are all the latest rumors on the HTC One M10 specifications:
- 5.2” 4K screen display with a resolution of 4096 x 2160
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 812 octa-core processor clocked at 3.5 GHZ
- 27 MP rear-facing camera
- 10 MP front-facing camera
- 3400 mAh battery

A quick charging feature is rumored to make it possible to receive a full charge from 0% to 100% in less than 5 minutes. Probably the most innovative of all the HTC One M10 rumors to date consists of solar charging, which is just that, giving users the ability to charge the phone through solar power.

Fingerprint Scanners are so yesterday, or this is what the latest rumors suggest. Eye sensing scanners would give owners the ability to lock and unlock the phone by simply staring at the screen. Eye sensing security is said to be more responsive and provide much better control of the locking and unlocking process.

3 Internal Memory and Expandable Memory Options
Everything seems to consist of how much we can download, store, and easily access right in the palm of our hands. This is where the amount of memory makes all the difference, and the M10 is believed to feature many internal and expandable memory options.
