Apart from the HTC 10, the Taiwanese smartphone company has also announced a new mid-range device for the Malaysian market. Following the trend of unibody metal smartphones, the HTC One X9 is the latest member of the “HTC One” family that was first announced at the end of 2015.
So the HTC 10 has been out for quite some time now and it’s been getting pretty good feedback. However, it seems that the Taiwanese company isn’t done rehashing their old One M9 smartphones. Here’s their latest rendition — the One M9+ Prime Camera Edition.
HTC’s next flagship is going to called the 10 and we’ve seen a couple of details courtesy of evleaks and @onleaks. While the actual launch date is still up in the air, here’s a clearer leak of the HTC 10.
Well taken photographs of unreleased devices are usually a dime a dozen. First and foremost, comes the hostility of getting caught of snapping those photos that’ll probably get you in a lot of trouble. But still companies are finding it harder to prepare for the storm of their devices getting leaked out in the open.
Samsung is on top of the ant hill when it concerns their Galaxy S7 duo that’s slated to be released at MWC 2016. LG’s G5 has made a few appearances too but it seems like we’ve forgotten the darling of Taiwan – HTC with their One M10.
Almost a year since HTC introduced its HTC One M9, they are not going to replace it anytime soon at the upcoming MWC 2016. The One M9 is very well built but it isn’t up to mark when compared with its flagship rivals.
After the release of the One A9, HTC is still sticking to its polished metal unibody looks and the next flagship may not be surprisingly different. The folks at the Taiwanese smartphone brand are working on a new flagship dubbed as the “HTC Perfume” and it is likely to be the One M10 flagship when it launches.
Pick up your phone, yes that one. The one that’s never more than an arm’s reach from you at all times. The one that has probably been in the bathroom with you more times than the toilet roll has. Yes, that one.
Of course, if you’re already reading this on your smartphone then I do apologise for being an idiot by choosing this intro, but I digress.
How does your smartphone feel? And no, I don’t mean this in a metaphorical out-of-body-experience sense, I mean this in a literal sense. We spend every waking moment (some sleeping) of our lives holding onto a little brick that probably weighs no more than a really heavy spoon at a posh restaurant, but most of us put little to no thought into how a device feels in the hand when deciding on a purchase. It’s all about specs and that’s rather unfortunate.

MORE HORSEPOWER. That’s usually a buyer’s biggest criteria when looking for a smartphone. It’s also what people look for when determining the value-for-money aspect of a device, as consumers will try their best to squeeze every bit of horsepower for as low of a price as possible.
It is these buyers that were ultimately disappointed when HTC launched the One A9 because it had decidedly mediocre specs for a not-low-at-all asking price of USD400. In a world where smartphone manufacturers are churning out devices with incredible specs for an equally incredible low price, this is simply unacceptable. Thankfully, HTC’s new “hero” device seems to rectify this problem, to some extent at least.
For something that’s called the HTC One, there sure are many more than just one device. Now, with the newly announced One M9s, there is another One on the market designed to make purchases for the everyman smartphone buyer all the more difficult.
The HTC One A9 isn’t really the flagship smart phone that you’re looking for. Since its introduction, the metal clad smart phone is constantly accused of being a copy of the iPhone 6/6s. Besides, it gets a mid-range spec and it loses the front facing BoomSound stereo speakers.
If you’re hoping for something better, HTC is rumoured to be working on a new One X9 that looks promising.
