Leak reveals design for HTC's next 5.15-inch 'HTC 10' smartphone

With a flagship smartphone noticeably absent from Mobile World Congress last month, HTC is due for a big release.

A duo of often reliable smartphone leakers have released information on Friday about HTC's next flagship smartphone, believed to be called the HTC 10.

OnLeaks posted on Twitter the specifications for an HTC 10 prototype that include a 5.15-inch QHD display, 4GB of RAM, 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, fingerprint scanner, and USB Type-C.

EvLeaks followed up with what looks to be an official press rendering of the HTC 10 in silver. It shows the headphone port has been awkwardly relocated to the top, and the back of the device has beveled edges (HTC teased these), and the front is relatively plain.

HTC hasn't detailed when it plans to release the smartphone, replacing last year's 5-inch M9 and taking on new competition from Samsung and LG .
