There has been a fair number of whispers concerning the HTC One M10 going around for quite some time already, and one can only make an educated guess that this is because the flagship device is about to roll out to the masses soon. Of course, there are pretty strong indicators that point to the HTC One M10 (which is also known as the Perfume in certain quarters) that this upcoming flagship device will not make its debut at Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, Spain, later this month, but on April instead with a different name – and surely such a delay will not deter hardcore fans of the upcoming device.
@LlabTooFer claims to have the inside scoop on what the latest concerning the device in the tweet above. It seems that the HTC One M10 will feature a 12 MP Sony IMX 377 sensor right smack at the back with a pixel size of 1.55µm, where it will also be supported by laser autofocus in addition to phase detection autofocus for a truly unique photography experience.
The front camera is touted to be part of the UltraPixel heritage, where there are whispers which point to its sensor being a 5MP Samsung s5k4e6, sporting a 1.34µm pixel size. If true, then it would be a whole lot smaller compared to the 2µm found in the original UltraPixel cameras.
