It has been coming since last year – the HTC One X10 – but finally, we now have our first live images of the HTC One X9 successor after long periods of rumors and speculations.
At first, it was thought that HTC One X10 will be launched alongside the HTC U Ultra and U Play, however, the Taiwanese company kept it clean with the U series. Despite the miss, this hasn’t stopped more rumors about the phone from flooding the internet.
In the newly-leaked images, the alleged HTC One X10 has a completely new design when compared to the device it will be replacing. The HTC One X9 was launched in early 2015 and as a result, it makes sense that images of a new One X10 are surfacing at this point in time. If anything, the X9 is already past a year old, a period that usually means a device is to be refreshed.
The One X9 had some looks of the Google Nexus 6P, but the latest One X10 seems to be going for a unibody design alongside a fingerprint scanner on the back. This is a huge step for the midrange phone considering that its predecessor had no support for fingerprint scanning technology. However, the capacitive navigation buttons and their location on the front panel have been retained.

With these images out, it probably won’t be long before the HTC One X10 is announced, maybe even at the MWC 2017, although there were rumors that HTC will be skipping the Barcelona event this time. But since the HTC U Ultra and U Play are yet to be released, don’t be surprised if the phone pops up alongside the two.
The predecessor to the HTC One X10 comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD display screen, an Helio X10 processor paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The phone has a great 13MP camera on the back with features such as f/2.0 aperture, AF, OIS as well as dual-tone LED flash. The front has a 5MP snapper with a rather smaller aperture of f/2.8 as compared to its primary counterpart. Battery-wise, there is a 3000mAh battery while Android Marshmallow powers it out of the box. Most of these features are expected to see major upgrades when the X10 comes to life.
