The purported HTC One M9, unofficially codenamed Hima, has leaked extensively as of late and more specifications have now surfaced online.
The HTC One M9 is expected to launch next year as the company's flagship smartphone for 2015, arriving as the successor to the widely popular HTC One M8. While nothing is official at this point, the rumor mill is busy churning in anticipation, as always, and various details have already made their way online.
Not too long ago, word came out that the HTC One M9 will launch in the same three color options as its predecessor, i.e. silver, gray, and gold. A new leak now offers more details regarding the smartphone's purported specifications, hinting at a top-notch powerhouse.
The news comes from tipster Upleaks, which claims that the HTC One M9 Hima should see the light of day in March 2015. Considering that the HTC One M8 launched around the same time earlier this year, this timeframe sounds plausible.
When it comes to specifications, the HTC One M9 is expected to launch with a 5-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, albeit a QHD display (2560 x 1440 pixels) would be more in line with the latest flagships.
Under the hood, the HTC One M9 will reportedly pack a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset with four cores clocked at 2.0GHz and the other four operating at 1.5GHz, paired with 3GB of RAM.
The latest leak also seems to confirm earlier speculation that HTC will ditch the UltraPixel tech for the rear camera of its next flagship smartphone. Upleaks now claims that the HTC One M9 Hima will boast a 20.7-megapixel camera, while the front shooter will be either a 13-megapixel sensor or a 4-megapixel UltraPixel camera. A 2,840 mAh battery will reportedly keep things up and running, while on the software side the smartphone should launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop and HTC's own Sense 7 on top.
With no official confirmation from HTC, however, it all remains in the rumor state at this point. As always in such cases, it's best to take all rumors, leaks, and speculation with a hefty grain of salt.
