New HTC One officially confirmed to debut on March 1 at MWC 2015
If there was any doubt left that HTC will unveil its next-generation flagship smartphone on March 1, the company has now made it very clear.
The 2015 flagship smartphone from HTC is one of the most hotly-anticipated devices of this year and excitement is already building up. HTC had already announced a while ago that it has a special event scheduled for March 1, and the HTC One M9 was naturally expected to be the star of the event.
If so far there was still a small chance that HTC had different plans for the March 1 event and/or the One M9 unveiling, that's not the case anymore. The company has now officially confirmed plans to unveil "the new HTC One" at its upcoming event.
As you can see in the image above, which comes from HTC itself, the next HTC One is indeed set to make its formal debut at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 on March 1. HTC UK posted this teaser on Twitter on Tuesday, Feb. 17.
It's worth pointing out that HTC calls it "the new HTC One," which means that it remains unconfirmed for now whether the upcoming flagship will launch with the One M9 moniker.
With less than a couple of weeks until the big event, however, we'll soon get the official scoop on the next-generation HTC flagship smartphone.
So far referred to as the HTC One M9 or by the codename "Hima," the upcoming smartphone is expected to be a real powerhouse with top-notch specs and features all around. The handset should retain the same sleek design language of its predecessor, but boast notable improvements in terms of specifications.
The HTC One M9 is rumored to come with a 5-inch display, but it remains unconfirmed whether it will have a full HD (1920 x 1080) or QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. HTC has also reportedly replaced the UltraPixel rear camera with a 20-megapixel shooter, and moved the UltraPixel tech to the front camera instead.
Other rumored specs of the next HTC One include an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor paired with Adreno 430 graphics, 3GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB internal storage configurations, microSD card support for additional memory, and a 2,840 mAh battery. Connectivity options should include VoLTE, LTE Cat. 6, Wi-Fi ac, an Bluetooth 4.1. The handset will most likely launch with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop and HTC Sense 7 on top.
None of these specs are officially confirmed at this point, however, so make sure to take them with a grain of salt. All in all, one thing's for sure: the new HTC One will break cover on March 1, and we'll make sure to tell you all about it.
