Tech giants are gearing up for the Mobile World Congress and one of the most highly anticipated releases is the HTC One M10 variant. Nonetheless, ahead of the release, several leaks suggest that the company is in fact working on a Windows 10 variant which could be potentially game-changing. Can HTC deliver a killer Windows phone?
Microsoft has been stepping up its game on all fronts and it appears HTC also wants to be a part of that. According to new reports, the company is working on a Windows variant of the HTC One M10. Information came from a recent job listing that WMPU spotted. According to the posting, Microsoft and HTC appear to be continuing with the partnership as far smartphones are concerned. The complete listing says:
“The team is seeking a Director of Account Management, located in Taipei, Taiwan to report to the Director of Device Sales in Shenzhen, China. In this global role, the Director is responsible for developing this dynamic and fast growing Ecosystem and Partnering with business groups and channel teams while sharing deep insight and strategic vision.”
According to the BitBag, one of the reasons why HTC potentially considered the partnership is that when it released the HTC One M8, it was not as popular to Windows phone fans. The market still preferred Microsoft’s Lumia high-end devices. The partnership will serve as a comeback for HTC.
As mentioned, HTC One M10 is expected to be released during MWC 2016. It will reportedly compete with several releases during that time including the Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G5, Xiaomi Mi 5 and the Microsoft Lumia series. Other expected features according to the Mirror include: rounded corners and metallic bodies, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, Sense 8.0_GP and two processor variants such as Qualcomm 820 (for EU and US markets) and MTK based (Mainly for China and South-East Asia).
