HTC One M10 screen size may be slightly larger than expected


Of the three big Android early-year flagships we’ve been looking forward to, the LG G5, the Samsung Galaxy S7, and the HTC One M10, HTC’s entry has easily felt like the most mysterious of the group. From the name, to the design, to the hardware within, big questions have been hanging over this handset since day one, and every time it feels like we’re just starting to get some answers – like we did when an image of actual hardware landed last week and appeared to confirm quite a few outstanding rumors – some new rumor lands that has us questioning earlier assumptions. That’s just what’s happening today (albeit in a relatively minor way) as sources suggest a slightly different screen size for the phone.

Coming in to this week, the latest chatter on the One M10’s display had it stepping up to a quad HD resolution and going with an OLED panel.

This new rumor does nothing to contradict any of that, but instead suggests that rather than the 5.1-inch screen we’ve been expecting, the One M10 could end up with a 5.2-inch component.

What’s a tenth of an inch between friends? In the grand scheme of things, it matters very little, and it’s not like we’re talking about some big phablet-sized upgrade. That said, we’re some straight-up phone nerds here, and we love little more than obsessing over this sort of minor detail.
