HTC Perfume is going to have 5.2'' WQHD screen instead of reported earlier 5.1'' screen 😉

The report also confirms rumors that the device will sport a WQHD display. That’s an upgrade from the company’s recent devices, which mostly offer a 1080p resolution. It should also help HTC compete directly with upcoming flagship phones from key rivals like Samsung and LG.
The HTC One M10 is expected to pack a Snapdragon 820 chip, 4GB of RAM, expandable storage, a fingerprint reader and a 12-UltraPixel camera with laser-assisted autofocus and optical image stabilization. It should also run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box along with the company’s new Sense 8.0 operating system.
The device’s design may look pretty similar to the One A9, with rounded corners that resemble the iPhone 6. The One M10 could also ditch HTC’s unpopular front-facing logo, and @LlabTooFeR previously noted that the new symmetrical style is “nice.”
LG and Samsung are both expected to announce new phones at Mobile World Congress later this month, but HTC fans may have to wait a little longer. The company is allegedly planning its own dedicated event this spring ahead of a rumored April launch.
