In the smartphone industry these days, it is common knowledge that Taiwanese multinational company HTC has not been performing very well in the past year or so, with the mediocre sales of its latest flagship, the HTC One M9, as well as the controversy it got mired in when they were accused by Apple that they copied the iPhone's design with its HTC One A9. The company however may be trying its hand to make a comeback with its upcoming flagship, the HTC One M10.
According to a Forbes report, recent leaks about the device point to one big change it is planning to make with the HTC One M10 and it has to do with equipping it with a bigger and better-performing camera. The report cites a leak from known tipster Evan Blass who is said to have seen a prototype model in action.
According to the leak, the device is said to have a 1,440 by 2,560 pixel display, which is also said to be using AMOLED technology. Under the hood, it is said to sport the latest Qualcomm chipset, the Snapdragon 820, which comes with an Adreno 530 GPU and is paired with 4 GB of RAM. Internal storage is said to be at 32 GB and comes with expandable memory support through a microSD card slot. more >>

The upcoming iPhone 7 may mark the debut of new features such as the dual-camera technology and wireless EarPods for Apple's next smartphones, based on the latest rumors.
Last year, Apple acquired Israeli firm Linx Camera Inc, which uses the dual-camera technology to capture two different images that are later stitched together with the help of imaging software. Rumor has it that the iPhone 7 will have this technology plus the wireless EarPods to adapt to the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack, according to N4BB.
Last year, Japanese blog Macotakara reported that the 3.5mm headphone jack will no longer be seen in the iPhone 7. This would allow the Cupertino-based firm to make its next smartphone thinner and use the Lightning port for the headphone and charger. However, it cannot be used for listening to music, the report explains. more >>
