There were reports that HTC One X10 will be one of the devices that the Taiwanese tech giant will be releasing this Q1 2017. Apparently, this will indeed be happening thanks to word from famous leaker Evan Blass.
The new HTC One X10 will obviously come in to succeed last year’s HTC One X9, another 5.5-inch phablet the company launched for the midrange market. Apparently, there are a number of similarities between the two phones, with claims that there are slight differences between the two. You will come across almost the same design, specs as well as features, but there are also some improvements.
As noted, the HTC One X10 will come with a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, similar to its predecessor. If the reports are to be believed, HTC will strangely be turning to a slightly less-powerful processor used on last year’s One X9, but there is still no Snapdragon SoC. To hit the nail on the head, the HTC One X10 will come with a MediaTek MT6755 octa-core processor that will be clocked at a speed of 1.9GHz and paired with a Mali-T860 GPU. On paper, this processor is weaker than the MediaTek MT6795 octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz used on the X9 phablet.
Despite the minor differences in processor configuration, the similarities are still on when talking about the memory. On RAM matters, you still get 3GB and for the onboard storage, the same 32GB used on the X9 is also used on the new X10. As for the photography aspects, HTC One X10 has some small improvements over its predecessor. You get 16.3MP and 7.9MP snappers on the X10 while the X9 has 13MP and 5MP snappers.
After the release of the HTC One X10, we also expect the company to come in with an HTC Ocean Note phablet as well as a successor to the HTC 10. All these should happen during this Q1 2017.
