HTC last year introduced the all new X series by launching the One X9 smartphone. Now, the company is all set to launch its successor, HTC One X10. This new device comes with an all metal body and there is no glossy camera strip as seen on its predecessor. Even there is no HTC branding on the front of the device. Apart from the change in the design, most of the specifications are expected to be the same on both the devices. We can expect One X10 to run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat based HTC Sense UI on top.
It sports a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution display on the front, same as its predecessor. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6755 octa-core processor clocked at 1.9GHz whereas the last years One X9 came with a slightly powerful MediaTek MT6795 octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz. The Mediatek MT6755 SoC is the same we have seen earlier on the Desire 10 Pro that launched in India in December. It packs the 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage that can be further expanded via MicroSD card slot.
The worthy upgrades can be found in the camera department, it sports a 16.3MP rear camera and a 7.9 MP front camera. In comparison, the One X9 came with a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. According to the teaser images, the company is expected to introduce a new U series of smartphones at the ongoing CES 2017. While the company might bring three new U series smartphones, one of them is the HTC One U Ultra. It is said to feature a huge 6-inch display and might skip using the 3.5mm audio port. The HTC Bolt (a.k.a HTC 10 Evo) is the first HTC smartphone to miss the 3.5mm audio port.
Since the device is rumored to come with an edge-to-edge display, the U Ultra might run on the leaked HTC Sense Touch UI based on Android. Compared to the regular Sense UI, the Sense Touch UI depends on the Gestures and Touch ti Navigate input modes. While the U Ultra is said to be codenamed Ocean Note, we still need to get information regarding the other devices – Ocean Master and Ocean Smart. The HTC U series smartphone will be unveiled on January 12th while the HTC One X10 might not be launched on that same stage.
In November last year, HTC launched the Desire 10 Pro and HTC 10 Evo smartphones in the India. While the HTC Desire 10 Pro is priced at Rs. 26,490, the company is yet to announce the price of HTC 10 Evo. Stay tuned on Phone Radar as more information can be leaked out in the coming days.
