With only a couple week left until the official release of the HTC One M9, the focus starts to turn to next year’s inevitable release of the HTC One M10. With minimal changes in the overall appearance of the M9 when looking at the previous (M9), we’re expecting to see so much more next year. With HTC taking more of a modern and minimal approach with the M9, the HTC One M10 rumors are suggesting much more.
With all of the top players in the industry bringing out flagships with innovative concepts, we fully expect HTC to do the same. Many rumors surrounding the next generation of smartphones which include 3D displays, foldable designs, 4K resolutions, and much more.
With just under a year left until we see the official announcement on the M10, the following HTC One M10 rumors including specs, features, price, and release date will give you some insight of things to come.
HTC One M10 Specs and Features
The rumors on the much improved HTC One M10 specs suggests consumers will be getting exactly what they want. Rumors on either a 3K screen or a 4K screen would give us the same resolution of a high end home TV. We’re talking about the most vibrant colors, graphics, and overall, the best smartphone viewing experience.
We are also hearing rumors that HTC is intending on beefing up the speed and processing power. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 812 processor octa-core processor would make for an overall better multitasking experience. Running multiple programs at the same time would be better for all of us who spend life on the go.
The following are all the rumors on the specifications and HTC One M10 features:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 812 octa-core processor clocked at 3.5 GHZ
- 5.2” Sapphire screen with 4K resolution of 4096 x 2160

HTC One M10 Price
As of right now, there is minimal information out on the expected HTC One M10 price, but based on the price of the M9 we can expect more of the same. HTC is hoping that the cheaper price when comparing the M9 to other flagships from Samsung, Apple, and LG it will appeal to a wider consumer base.
We are hoping to see a US HTC One M10 price in the area of $600 for a 16 GB version and could be as high as $749 for a 64 GB version. We’re really hoping that HTC brings out a higher memory version with dual 128 GB memory card slots that will bring the total memory to more than other 2016 flagship smartphones.
HTC One M10 Release Date
HTC has been pretty consistent with the release date of their flagships, and we expect the same with the 2016 HTC One M10 release date. With the official announcement expected at the annual Barcelona Mobile World Congress event, it would certainly set up a worldwide March or April release.
Expect to see both HTC and Samsung compete with their flagship releases in the HTC One M and Galaxy S series with new launches right around the same time. Both the Galaxy S7 and HTC One M10 will share similar specs, and the one that makes it to a store near you may just appeal to consumers the most.
