HTC’s upcoming flagship smartphone which is being developed under the codename Hima and expected to go official as the One M9 has been making headlines for months. And while we’ve already gotten a good look at its probable features, a new leak has surfaced disclosing more than what we already know.
Twitter leakster @Upleaks has been responsible for most leaks on devices from the Taiwanese OEM and is also the source of today’s information on the HTC One M9 Hima. The post once again confirms that the octa core Snapdragon 810 SOC featuring quad Cotex A57s at 2GHz, quad Cortex A53s at 1.5GHz and Adreno 430 graphics will be powering up the flagship.
The display has been one of the most debated features and the report suggests that HTC won’t be making the move to 2K resolution with the upcoming handset and will settle for a 5-inch 1080p panel can also be found on the current One M8 flagship. On the upside, the company will be improving the onboard memory to 3GB RAM and options of 32GB and 64GB storage.
And the icing on the cake is that there will also be a microSD card slot in the mix. While most OEMs are beefing up the batteries on their flagships, HTC apparently doesn’t see the need for a large power pack on the One M9 and it’ll go with a 2840mAh cell which is a small improvement over the 2600mAh rating on the current handset.
Here’s a roundup of the new HTC One M9 specs:
– Android 5.0.2 Lollipop w/ Sense 7
