Many high-end brands like Samsung and LG are launching their Android Smart Phones with lots of new unique features this year. The majority of the next-gen android lovers attention have found itself cast on the upcoming Samsung’s Galaxy S7and the LG’s G5 however another smartphone company is coming early this year with a terrific smartphone that is surely going to catch the attention of Android users especially the ones who are planning to buy a smartphone in the coming days. Yes, HTC One of the most popular and high-end brand among Android Smart Phones is making public its next flagship smartphone. HTC is launching its new flagship “HTC One M10” this year, most probably in March. Potential buyers are starting to see a clearer picture of what to expect from HTC One M10. Here we are sharing some specifications of the upcoming HTC One M10 for potential buyers.
Battery, Dual-SIM and Display:
If we talk about HTC One M10’s battery, it is going to be really advanced this time. HTC One M10 will come with Li-ion battery 3500 mAh. This Phone will support Dual-SIM (Nano-version). It is expected that phone will have a new design and the size of the screen will increase from 5 to 5.1 or 5.2. Screen resolution will be 1440 x 2560 pixels and pixel density would be 565 PPI. HTC One M10’s display will come with waterproof and dustproof certification.
Processor / RAM Specifications :
As of HTC One M10 processor is concerned, you must know HTC provides a built-in powerful snapdragon chipset. It is expected that the processor will be – Qualcomm 82X with 3.X GHz Quad-core HMP cyclone technology. RAM will be 4GB with 64GB / 128GB onboard memory solution.
Previous launches of HTC established an image that HTC is moving with the trend silently. As already there is a trend for taking selfies, so HTC is launching an improved selfie Smartphone with an high-end specification. So, it is expected that the new HTC One M10 will have bigger camera module with dual-camera – Front Camera will range in between 20 – 27MP and Rear camera will be 4MP with face detection Auto-focus technology.
4K Resolution with HD Display
If you remember in early 2013, there was a new trend to have a full HD display and HTC was very first to have full HD display feature in phones. So, it is expected that 4K-resolution display or 2K-resolution display will be a part of HTC One – M10 display configuration. It is the next big thing that is expected to come in the HTC M10, in order to compete in a very competitive android market. Whereas no confirmation comes from HTC regarding 4K resolution display, but HD display will be an essential feature.
Price of the HTC One M10
HTC One M10’s expected price would be in the range of 650$ to 800$. HTC will not come for a cheaper price, as you can see the above specification will increase the manufacturing cost and the final product will also be expensive. However, people are paying the same price since 2013 for HTC and HTC has proven its worth beyond doubt for its users.

Dreary methodology of Microsoft even when Mozilla Firefox consistently expanded its piece of the pie after 2005 and Google chrome after 2008 has left the giant conglomerate anesthetized.
