It’s nice to see companies out there still releasing phones with 5-inch displays in a world where 5.5 inches and 5.7 inches is considered a norm. Among those remaining are HTC and Samsung, but the latter utilizes the Galaxy Note to serve an audience that demands large displays. HTC, however, really sticks to an end of the spectrum closer to 5 inches. Last year’s One M9 had a 5-inch display despite much of the competition going well beyond that. And the One A9 from HTC also stuck with a 5-inch display to remain comfortable in any consumer’s hands. But, in 2016, there was concern around the web that HTC would choose to raise the display size of the company’s next flagship, which is known internally Perfume.
Late in January, Evan Blass shared a ton of information about the upcoming HTC One M10. The display, according to him, will measure 5.1 inches and have Quad HD (2560×1440) resolution; however, a new source is claiming that HTC will actually be using a 5.2 inch panel.
LlabTooFeR, who’s very familiar with all things HTC, revealed on Twitter that the One M10’s display will measure 5.2 inches and have Quad HD resolution rather than the slightly smaller 5.1 inches mentioned by Blass. Still, regardless of the larger display, it seems HTC will have one of the most compact flagships on the market. A recent leak of the phone’s front shows an iPhone-like appearance for the One M10.
Remember, HTC will not be holding a launch event for its One M10 at MWC 2016. The company will be opting to host a solo event in the coming months to ensure all attention is on the One M10 and the One M10 only.
