Last month, mobile leakster Evan Blass revealed in a tweet that HTC was working on the One X10, a mid-range smartphone that will succeed the One X9. Two new spy shots of the device has been leaked online today, showing off the front as well as the rear of the smartphone.
The latest image does match perfectly with the image tweeted by Blass last month, so it does seem like the prototype caught on camera is indeed the One X10. In the image, we can see the smartphone has a protective strip on top, complete with the HTC One X10 branding. Unlike some recent smartphones from HTC, the One X10 will have the fingerprint scanner positioned at the back, right below the rear camera lens. We also see a dual-tone LED flash placed next to the camera module.
The HTC One X10 is expected to feature a 5.5-inch sized display with 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution, which should give it a pixel density of 403 pixels per inch. It is rumored to be powered by the MediaTek MT6755 octa-core chipset clocked at 1.9 GHz, integrating the Mali-T860 GPU clocked at 700 MHz. At the rear, the One X10 could feature a 16MP main camera with phase detection autofocus technology and an LED flash. For selfies and video calls, the One X10 will include an 8MP camera on the front.
According to the source of the leak, the HTC One X10 is likely to be priced at CNY 1,200 when it goes on sale, which converts to roughly $174 based on the current exchange rate. HTC usually prices its smartphones higher than they should be,, so if the rumored pricing is indeed accurate, HTC might be able to ship quite a few units of the One X10 in China. There is a possibility that the HTC One X10 could be officially unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in a few days. Since HTC isn’t expected to announce a new flagship device at MWC 2017, the One X10 could well be the star of the show at HTC’s event this year.
