HTC is apparently working on a new smartphone under its One series. Successor to the HTC One X9, the HTC One X10 was first detailed in January when serial leakster Evan Blass posted a tweet about the smartphone. A month later, we have the first look of the HTC One X10, thanks to a newly leaked image of the smartphone, giving us a glimpse into phone’s features and appearance.
Although there have been leaks about the purported HTC smartphone earlier, the accompanying images did not detail a real device but instead showed off what appeared to be press renders. The latest image, however, shows off the smartphone as it would appear after unboxing, with the screen protector sheet on top. Based on the image, there will be thin side bezels and navigation touch buttons will be placed at the lower end of the phone. The power key will be placed on the right side.
In line with the previous HTC One smartphones, the One X10 is expected to be a mid-range smartphone. It is widely speculated that the smartphone will show up at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona and hit the stores sometime in the first quarter of 2017.
