HTC is working its way to the budget segment with a new One series handset. The first live images of the upcoming HTC One X10 made its way on Weibo, China’s microblogging network. The One X10 is undoubtedly the successor to the current One X9 and one of the three upcoming devices set to launch this year.
HTC One X10 label on the screen cover and at the rear is the dead give away about the model name. It’s the same device that was spotted at the Bluetooth SIG last year with HTC 2PXH100 model number.
The One X10 will bring a few noteworthy changes. For starters, it appears to be using an aluminium unibody design and well-rounded edges. The One X10 carries the model number 2PXH100 and is estimated to feature a 5.5-inch display with a Full HD (1080×1920 pixels) resolution.
HTC will house an octa-core 1.9GHz MediaTek MT6755V/C chipset integrating Mali-T860 GPU for graphics. This MediaTek chip teams up with 3GB of RAM and 32GB worth of onboard storage. The hardware specs are quite identical to that of the One X9.
The notable change comes in the imaging department. The One X10 will feature a 16-megapixel camera at the rear with dual LED flash. Under the camera would be a fingerprint scanner. On the front will be a 5-megapixel camera for taking selfies and video calls.
There is no word on the battery capacity inside this smartphone. We hope HTC will pack the BoomSound capable speakers at the bottom. HTC may introduce the One X10 at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2017 starting February 27 in Barcelona, Spain.
