Chinese sources have leaked what they purport to be specs of the new HTC flagship phone that will be launched possibly during the Mobile World Congress in Berlin, March 2015. The possible HTC One M9 is said to bring a larger screen, or one version with a larger screen, as Apple did.
The specs are pretty straightforward and expected. But the main game-changer for HTC will reportedly be the huge (for them) 5.5-inch screen, packing a 2560x1440 resolution. This will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB RAM, and internal storage options of up to 128GB (wow).
There will also be front-facing speakers possibly designed by Bose, and a generous 3500mAh battery. There is much speculation on whether HTC will finally drop the UltraPixel technology it has continued to market up until the HTC One M8 – we hope they do. The new camera is supposedly sporting a 16MP rear cam, although with HTC’s selfie phone out, we should expect something new with the M9.
This phone is physically big, that we can be sure of, but we are not doing away with the rumor that there will be an HTC One M9 “Prime”, possibly a bigger version of the smartphone. More on this as details become available.
