HTC One M10 news: HTC may adopt new naming convention for One M9 successor


According to the Latinos Post, HTC will allegedly cease using the One M naming and will go ahead to naming the reported One M10 smartphone into the O2 instead.

The alleged device is touted by Christian Today as the most reliable and strongest device so far in its catalogue.

According to the report, the One M10 or the O2 will feature the new Snapdragon 820 processor from Qualcomm.

It could be recalled that the One M9 had suffered performance issues because of the problems in the design of the Snapdragon 810, the predecessor of the Snapdragon 820. Devices running on the processor, and not just the One M9, Christian Today said, experienced severe heating issues that prompted the development of the Snapdragon 820.

On the other hand, the website argued that the processor is likely to be the octa-core Qualcomm 82X processor, which has 3.X GHz speed and HMP cyclone technology.

The Latinos Post added that the device will likely have Quad HD touch screen, either the 5-inch or the 6-inch variant. In addition, the Snapdragon 820 processor will be backed up by a sizable 4GB of RAM with internal storage reported to be at either 64GB or 128GB. As for battery life, the HTC O2 will reportedly carry a 3,500 mAh battery.

Other technologies to be present in the O2 will be a fingerprint scanner and Touch ID.

The Day Herald also speculated that the O2 will feature a better display resolution, reportedly at 1440×2560, over the One M9.

Because of the fingerprint scanner, the Day Herald also theorized that the O2 will run on the upcoming Android Marshmallow operating system, also known as ‘Android M.’ said that the O2 will support dual-SIM technology, 27 megapixel cameras in both rear and front and 2K or 4K resolution for its display. The cameras will reportedly be capable of phase detection auto-focus technology.
