Its previous flagship smartphone One M9 HTC has announced at the exhibition MWC 2015, but this year, according to the latest data, the manufacturer will miss the event to be held in Barcelona in late February. Instead, HTC One M10 will be officially presented in March at a special press conference. As reported by Evan Blass, known online under the nickname Evleaks, the new HTC high-end smartphone will resemble the design One A9 and therefore will copy the Apple flagship.
After the presentation, One A9 users and experts of the market accused HTC of copying the iPhone 6s. To confuse this device with the smartphone Apple easy. From all released recently iPhone clone – Samsung Galaxy S6, ZTE Blade S6, Lenovo S90 – A9 HTC One exactly similar to the original more than the others.
In his Twitter Evan Blass writes: “If you liked One A9, then you will be delighted with the M10”. In this case, probably talking about the continuity of the design. In the case of One M10 worth the wait metal case in the style iPhone, protective glass 2.5 D, “strips” on the rear panel, a fingerprint scanner on the front panel.
The fact that HTC has decided to continue to copy Apple, not surprising. This strategy with One A9 with positive results. The Taiwanese company reported that in November, after the start of sales of iPhone replica, its consolidated profit grew by almost 15% and amounted to $313 million It enabled to show best score for the last six months.
HTC had planned to announce One M10 at Mobile World Congress in 2016, but in the end, as mentioned above, the presentation will take. There is no information about what could be the reason — maybe it’s some discovered flaws in the prototype clone, but we cannot exclude the reluctance of the manufacturer “lost” among other big Premier. Recall that at MWC 2016 expected announcement of Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5.
