HTC One M10 or HTC 02 the final iteration of One Series; Upcoming flagship supports waterproof capability set for Q4 2015 launch
The HTC One M10 might not be available until early 2016 and the HTC 02 is claimed to be the One M10. However, the upcoming HTC flagship would probably sport various features and support additional capabilities.
The latest member of HTC One series, which is the HTC One M9, was not a great hit. The HTC One series are very prominent on its metal design in order to preserve the company's strong hold in the market. However, it didn't improve the sales of HTC.
According to CNET's report, HTC continues a downward spiral as it has been removed from Taiwan's top 50 index. This might be the reason why HTC has not announced HTC One M10 yet. It seems that the company is going on a meticulous process before launching its new flagship.
The status and reputation that HTC gained was a no-joke to slack off as its One series are comparable to the large android smartphone products such as Samsung Galaxy S Series, Apple iPhone series, and Sony Xperia Z series.
The HTC One M10 or the HTC 02, as reported earlier by Digital Trends, is more likely to start rolling out in the store shelves in the last quarter of 2015. However, it seems to be early since the HTC One M9 was just recently released. After all, it is much better than to let HTC fans waiting.
The HTC One M10 is reported to support wireless charging, though it is still uncertain. One M10 is also expected to support waterproof capability and additional storage for built-in memory. If these features will be packed to the upcoming flagship, the HTC would probably attract more consumers and might gain back its spot on the stock index.
Reportedly, HTC will not continue the HTC One series with M10 because its performance and profits will continue to decline. Thus Cher Wang of HTC quoted, "HTC will reshape the glory out of the woods".
On the other hand, HTC might launch HTC Aero as what teasers suggest based on Tech Radar's report. Moreover, the HTC One M10 might not be available until early next year. However, the company plans to make certain changes to the innovation and design of its 2016 flagship.
If the latest flagship will be launched in the last quarter this year, then it would most likely sport Snapdragon 810 processor. However, if the upcoming flagship of HTC will be released by next year, there is a big possibility of sporting Snapdragon 820 processor whether it is named as One M10 or HTC 02.
