Looks like the rumor mill can’t stop buzzing about HTC’s upcoming flagship the One M10, which is also known from its internal codename Perfume. Over the week, we learned that the smartphone would sport a 5.2-inch WQHD display and a selfie camera with OIS. Now, the latest leak sheds light on its camera specifications. We’ve also come across a leaked 3D design render pointing to One M10 design being hybrid of One A9 and the One M9. Also Read - HTC Desire 20+ launched with 48-megapixel quad rear camera setup
According to @LlabTooFeR, who focuses on HTC, the One M10 would employ Sony’s 12-megapixel IMX 377 sensor with pixel size of 1.55um. It is the same sensor that we’ve seen on Huawei Nexus 6P. He also claims that the camera sensor will be supported by phase detection auto-focus and laser auto-focus. Also Read - HTC Wildfire E Lite smartphone design leaks online
As for the front-facing camera, the One M10 could be equipped with an UltraPixel camera. However, the sensor is likely to be Samsung’s s5k4e6 5-megapixel unit with pixel size of 1.34µm, which is much smaller compared to the current UltraPixel camera of 2µm.

In terms of design, the 3D render shows that the One M10 will look more like the One A9, with beveled sides and flat back. However, there is one noticeable change — unlike the One A9 where the camera was above the antenna line, the One M10 render shows that the camera module will be below it, just like the previous M-models. The laser auto-focus element can also be seen below the LED flash. Also despite having slightly larger screen, the one M10 is expected to be of the same size as the A9.
HTC One M10 specifications and features: On the hardware front, rumors point to a 5.2-inch WQHD display (1440×2560 pixels) along with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4GB of RAM under the hood. On the storage front, 32GB of internal memory and a microSD card slot is also expected. The One M10 is likely to run Google’s latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow wrapped under HTC Sense 8 UI.
