Apparently, the HTC One M10 will be missing from the MWC 2016 event due to happen at the end of February, but rather will be the highlight of a March launch event, with an April release following.
Reports say that a few of design models being returned to the design team could be behind the delay. While the renowned and reliable leakster Evan Blass tweeted that plans are already underway for the phone to enter the AT&T catalog, though its unknown when this will happen. The handset seems to be a received an alias name of Perfume.

The large screen will be powered by the robust Snapdragon 820 CPU backed by the Adreno 530 GPU.

HTC One M10 Design
This previous January, Evan Blass took to twitter, suggesting that the the One M10 could have a resemblance to the A9.
Just recently on February 8, he went a step further and gave credibility to his claims, tweeting an image purported to be a picture showing the HTC One M10. The posted image of the handset does appear to have an uncanny look similar to the HTC One M9, though it features a more rounded home button, which makes it even more identical to an iPhone.
Other noticeable changes include the removal of the HTC logo at the device's front as well as the Boomsound speakers.
HTC One M10 features
Undoubtedly the main camera has been the Achilles heel of the current HTC flagships. Though the decision to move the 4 MP One M8 back camera to the One M9's front was great, the 20.7 MP main camera set at the M9's back was proof that more pixels don't necessarily mean a great camera.
Based on information obtained from Evan Blass, the rear camera is set to be complemented by a 12 MP camera, an autofocus backed by a laser, and the optical image stabilization, which appears to be what most HTC fans are currently hoping for in a better HTC camera.
Another notable feature to expect is the Type-C USB input, which means faster data transfers, faster charging and reversible ends that will make it compatible to larger devices.
