HTC is doing an excellent job at keeping the One M10 smartphone flagship under wraps, considering the leak based industry that is mobile. The company's upcoming device could be an all or nothing handset that aims to put the Taiwan giant back near the top, but more importantly for the consumer the M10 will hopefully see HTC return to its innovative best.Yes, there have been a number of false dawns or a resurgent HTC over the last year, but still we cannot help but have very high hopes for the M10, which is codenamed Perfume. Even Blass, of former Evleaks glory, has now offered some purported specs that will land with the M10 in the spring, and if true it seems like HTC is aiming high. The One M9 was a disappointment in flagship terms because its rivals tended to offer more, but apparently that will not be a problem with the One M10. The device will get a 5.1-inch Quad HD screen (a bump from the M9?s 1080p), a brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 12 megapixel camera which will see a return of HTC's UltraPixel technology to primary camera duties on a flagship. HTC is unlikely to launch the One M10 at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona next month, which would be a departure for the company. Instead we can expect to see the device launched later in March or early April and released closer to the end of spring.
