HTC is working on its most advanced smartphone till date, to regain the lost market share after releasing series of not so successful smartphones. Specifications of the yet to be unveiled device, codenamed as ‘Perfume' is supposed to be sold in the market as the One M10.
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow will be supported and HTC's Sense 8.0 UI will customize the smartphone. The 5.1-inch Perfume will be very first smartphone with a 1440 x 2560 QHD display - which seems like a AMOLED type, as per the person who gots hands-on with the prototype. HTC will also bundle a fingerprint scanner, embedded in the home button just like the Samsung Galaxy.
This device is powered by Qualcomm's latest top-notch processor, the Snapdragon 820 system-on-a-chip backed by Adreno 530 graphics. The prototype had 4GB of RAM and 23GB of free internal disk space (complemented by a microSD slot) - which makes it 32GB total, excluding operating system and rest of the preloaded software. There might be difference in the design of the prototype and the final device.
Perfume will feature a 12-UltraPixel snapper in the back which will also have laser-assisted autofocus. Both of the cameras in the front and back will have optical image stabilization. There is a drawback when it comes to the quality of sound - there won't be any Boomsound audio experience.
