HTC One M9 - Exciting Tech 2015


Since as early as last year we’ve been hearing about a successor to last years popular HTC One M8 smartphone, currently being called the HTC Hima. And while most rumors have already given the device a name, no reports have confirmed it, until now. The new leakster to took over when @evleaks retired, @upleaks, is claiming his sources have confirmed the new phone will indeed be marketed at called the HTC One M9.


This isn’t really a secret, but it’s further confirmation that the device has already finished, is currently being tested my multiple carriers and partners, and could actually be announced and released come March 1st. We all assumed this would be the name, or it could be called the HTC Two, but we’ll have to wait and see.

To add even more fuel to the recent fire and set of rumors, a new photo leaked this week giving us another look at the back of HTC’s upcoming smartphone. This matches earlier leaked photos, which may or may not be the final design. This time we’re seeing the new 20.7 megapixel camera even better, as well as the gold color option.

This device looks rather large, and could be the HTC Hima in a shell hiding the final design, or the bigger HTC One Max we’ve heard could be coming later this year. It’s hard to tell from one leaked image which may or may not be the real product. Leaked photo aside, here’s the latest specs based on rumors.

HTC One M9 Specs (Rumored)

  • 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD screen (edge-to-edge glass front)
  • 2.3 GHz 8-core Snapdragon 810 processor (64-bit)
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of internal storage and a micro-SD slot for expansion
  • 20 MP rear facing camera and 4 Ultrapixel front shooter
  • Android 5.0.1 Lollipop and HTC Sense UI 7.0
  • Dual HTC Boomsound Speakers with Dolby 5.1 Audio Technology
  • 2,880 or 3,000 mAh battery
  • more

Again these are only rumors for now, but ones we’ve seen and heard countless times. The only questions we really have are what the final design will be, as rumors have painted a blurry picture, and if the screen will be 5.5-inches or the same 5-inch size from last year.

All said and done, the wait won’t be much longer as HTC has already confirmed they’ll be revealing the new HTC One M9 smartphone come March 1st in Spain. Surely more details and information will surface ahead of the announcement and release date, and we’ll be sure to share them as they become available.
