Yesterday we learned that HTC’s next flagship phone could be unveiled at a special event on April 11. Now a new rumor claims it could be a full month after that before the device actually hits stores.
HTC M10: Hitting US retail the week of May 9th

Evan Blass has a pretty good track record when it comes to leaking mobile news, which in this case may be bad news for any HTC fans hungry for a new phone. Thankfully, he also had some good news to share regarding the Taiwanese company.
It turns out the company’s long-rumored smartwatch could arrive before the end of April. The wearable device is expected to run Android Wear and feature a premium design. We still don’t know much about the HTC watch, unfortunately.
As for the HTC One M10 (which may not be the phone’s actual name), the device is expected to pack plenty of high-end hardware. That includes a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 820 chip, 4GB of RAM, expandable storage, a fingerprint reader and a high-tech 12 UltraPixel rear camera.
Here’s a few new details on the phone’s cameras courtesy of HTC tipster @LlabTooFeR.

The device’s design will probably look pretty similar to the One A9, just with a slightly bigger screen. HTC is also expected to finally ditch its front-facing logo for a cleaner look overall.
