If a recent leak is to believe then HTC might launch its new mid-range smartphone, HTC One X10, in the first quarter of 2017. The smartphone will be the successor to the One X9, which was introduced last year.
The leak comes from tipster Evan Blass aka @evleaks, which depicts that the upcoming smartphone might be unveiled later this month and will be only slightly different from its predecessor. This is line with the previous rumours which shows that the company might launch the mid-range device in January.
The tipster has also leaked a render of the smartphone which shows the front as well as the back panel of the device. The leaked images show a single rear facing camera coupled with dual-LED flash and a fingerprint sensor which sits beneath the camera.
The leak further claims that the device will sport a 5.5-inch full HD display and will be powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6755, popularly known Helio P10, clocked at 1.9GHz CPU along with Mali T860GPU. It is worth noting that its predecessor comes with a better Helio X10 processor clocked at a higher 2.2GHz. So it is safe to say that the device will be a ‘refresh’ version rather being an upgraded one.
The smartphone is rumoured to be backed by a 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which is similar to the One X9. On the camera front, there are some significant improvements, as the One X10 is touted to sports a 16.3-megapixel rear camera and 7.9-megapixel front-facing camera. To recall, the One X9 comes with a 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras.
HTC is rumoured to launch three new smartphones in the first quarter of 2017 with one of them being the X10. The company is also expected to launch HTC U Ultra, a 6-inch phablet on January 12, 2017. Lastly, the company is rumoured to unveil its flagship device, HTC 11, during the same time period.
