Set to launch at the Mobile World Congress, the flagship HTC One M9 (also known as HTC Hima) has been getting a lot of viral traction with one photo leak after another.
The M9 seems to have a thinner, sleeker design that features metallic accents, but retains its predecessor’s curved edges that slope smoothly to the aluminum back panel. Available information on its specification also shows that it really has the potential to be this quarter’s monster phone:
Display: 250×1440 QHD display
OS: Android 5.0 Lollipop
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core (2GHz quad-core Cortex A57 + 1.5GHz quad-core Cortex A53)
Camera/s: 20.7MP main, 13MP front
HTCSource‘s reliable source has countered that the leaked photos reveal only decoy test units — which means that the M9 would probably look different once launched — but goes on to say that the HTC flagship will “feature an edge-to-edge glass panel on the front with the BoomSound speaker slits pushed to the top and bottom edges”. Hey, we’re all for little to no bezels, so if these shots aren’t entirely accurate, we’re not really complaining.
The HTC One M9 is pegged to launched this coming March.
