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.

This is apparently the front of the HTC One M10

Later this month, Samsung and LG will be hosting events in Barcelona during MWC 2016 while HTC skips the conference to launch the One M10 at a later date. The reason for this is that HTC needs to be in the spotlight all on its own and avoid being overshadowed by two of its biggest competitors. So, until we finally see the company announce the handset, we’ll have rely upon leaks and reports to get an idea of what the One M10 will offer. Evan Blass, who exposes devices rapidly and accurately, revealed yesterday that the handset won’t have the annoying logo-stamped black bar below the display like the One (M7), One (M8), and One M9 did. But now we know what the front of the next One installment should look like.

Blass returned today to share an image of the HTC One M10 roaming around in the wild.

HTC is working on a new flagship for 2016, the HTC One M10, and all indications are that HTC received the message from consumers that they really needed to step up their game if they want to regain some of their former luster. Rumors indicate HTC plans to pack the smartphone full of some of the latest and greatest hardware available so that it can compete against anything on the market in terms of specs. HTC also appears to be on track to lose a feature of their previous models that will please fans as much as anything they could add. Read more

Benchmark shows Xiaomi’s Mi 5 having a 5.7-inch display

Xiaomi_Mi5_render_leak_122815_1

Less than three weeks away from Xiaomi’s February 24 launch event for the Mi 5 and today we’re getting a better idea of what the handset will offer. On GFXBench, alleged specifications for the Mi 5 were revealed and perhaps most surprising the size of the display. The handset was originally believed to have a 5.2-inch display, but this benchmark shows its display being 5.7 inches. Xiaomi’s Mi Note series already features displays of that size, so it’d be a little confusing to see the Mi 5 have such a large display.

Hit the break and we’ll take a look at the alleged specifications.
