New Photos of HTC M10 Confirms The Previous Leaks
We have seen the HTC M10 from few leaked photos, but we could only see its front and back. Now, it is fully leaked in the new press renders, and live photos.
The front of the HTC M10 looks exactly as the HTC A9. To be honest, since I did not like the A9’s design, I did not appreciate the M10’s design. It is not just iPhonish but also do not have the important features that separated HTC M series than other flagship phones such as the BoomSound speakers. Even though the speakers enlarged the bezels in the previous models, even without the speakers it has large bezels. On the other hand, its back looks more like M7 than M8, M9 or A9. Also, the locations of 3.5mm headphone port is similar with the Moto X.
Personally speaking, HTC did a great job with both M7 and M8, but they disappoint us with M9 which looked nearly same as M8. Also, I have found the A9 disappointment. In this case, HTC could do a better job, not just coping others in a bad way.
Anyway,the photos show the USB Type-C port, fingerprint sensor, and the new back and menu buttons. In the previous HTC phones the menu buttons were placed on the screen expect the M7. Since there were large bezels on the HTC phones, the virtual buttons enlarged the death area on the bottom of the phone, and this situation became just weird with M9/M9 Plus and A9 because there were physical home button, and also virtual buttons. With HTC M10, HTC added these back and menu buttons next to the physical home button.
