If the rumors are to believed, it seems like HTC will be skipping out on MWC 2016 to announce their flagship smartphone, which right now is rumored to be the HTC One M10. Instead HTC is said to be choosing to announce the handset in April at a separate event of their own, and now a tweet by @evleaks has suggested when we might be able to get our hands on it.
According to his tweet, he revealed that the availability of the handset in the US is set for the 9th of May, which is about a month after its rumored announcement. We’re not sure why HTC is skipping MWC. Perhaps the phone isn’t ready yet, or maybe HTC doesn’t want to have their product overshadowed by the likes of LG and Samsung.
Either way we guess if you want to get your hands on the device, you’ll have to wait until May. He also tweeted that the HTC smartwatch will be released earlier towards the end of April, which is more or less the same as what he had tweeted before. So far from what we know, the HTC One M10 will be a completely redesigned handset.
It is expected to resemble the HTC One A9 more than its previous One M-series of phones. In fact just yesterday it was rumored that HTC could launch the phone under a new name due to their desire to create a fresh start for themselves, but take it all with a grain of salt for now and check back with us in the coming months for more updates.
