Leakster Evan Blass provided a pretty good indication of when we can expect to see the HTC One M10 launched. He drew our attention to the date on the screen of an image he had previously leaked, which shows Tuesday, April 19.

In case it wasn’t obvious, I’d say that Tuesday, April 19th – the date on the screen – is nearly a lock for HTC 10 launch.

HTC One M10 name
There’s been a lot of speculation of the HTC One M10 name, and whether that is in fact what it will be called upon release. Given the sub-par performance of the M9, perhaps HTC is looking towards a little rebranding for this next model.
First it was suggested that the phone would be called the HTC O2, but then this was reportedly killed off and replaced by the HTC Perfume, according to leakster LlabTooFeR. The latter name carries the suspicious air of a codename. The likelihood of seeing a smartphone named Perfume on the market this year seems remote.
A purported HTC web survey leaked by TechTastic shows the HTC One M10’s name in multiple sources apparently from the HTC site, including a drop-down list for devices the customer might need service for. The list can be seen below.

HTC One M10 price
The HTC One M10 price has not yet been announced. But it is expected to be a high-end flagship, so a launch price of around US$700 seems probable.
