HTC had unveiled its flagship smartphone HTC One M8 early this year and now it seems that the Taiwanese company is getting ready to launch its successor, the HTC One M9 soon with some awesome specs. A report published a couple of days ago claims that HTC is preparing to introduce its next flagship at the MWC this spring.
HTC is in the habit of unveiling a new flagship device at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) held in Barcelona every year in March. It is rumored that the upcoming HTC One M9 will be showcased at the event. However, HTC designer Hasan Kaymak has posted a rending of HTC One M9 concept phone on his Google + account with the remark, “Here’s, what we’ll see next month”. A rumor also suggests that the new HTC phone will be as thin as Apple’s recently launched iPhone 6. The handset will have a premium metallic frame and 7.1mm thickness.
According to rumors, HTC One M9 would sport a 5.2” 2K 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution screen with a pixel density of 564ppi which is quite high compared to 441 ppi pixel density of HTC One M8. This means the M9 screen will be clearer and sharper. The device will supposedly be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset and will feature a 3GB RAM inside.
There would be two variants offering 64GB and 128GB of internal storage and the handset would come with pre-installed Android 5.0 Lollipop. The HTC One M9 would feature a more powerful battery as well as better rear and front-facing cameras. It is also touted to be water resistant. However, there is no word about its pricing.
According to earlier rumors, HTC One M8 Max with a 5.5” QHD display was supposed to be launched this year during the holiday season but that might not be the case now. We will just have to wait and see what HTC has in store for us.
