The HTC One M9 smartphone made the news originally for the controversial Snapdragon 810 SoC and the overheating issues that came along with it. A new report from Asia is now telling us that HTC might be planning to release a new version of the One M9 flagship, packing a MediaTek made SoC underneath.
It goes without saying that this variant will probably be directed towards the Asian markets as global regions already have the Snapdragon 810 powered version of the One M9 right now. It is rumored that the smartphone might use the 10-core MediaTek Helio X20 chipset, which could give it a leg up over the competition.
That being said, nothing has been confirmed right now, so take all of this with a grain of salt for the time being. Given the torrid time that HTC is facing right now, a move like this makes complete sense. But we’re not too sure if that will be enough to get the company out of the rut.
