HTC may not currently be at the top of the chart in the smartphone market but the Taiwanese manufacturer is still in the race. The current HTC flagship, One (M8) received mixed reviews, mainly due to the duo-camera technology used in it but otherwise the device offered good specs and a Windows running version of it was also made available. The One (M8) offered good competition to other flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G3. While there’s no news about the next gen of flagship smartphones from any other manufacturer, we have some information about all the HTC enthusiasts.
Rumoured specs for the next flagship, One (M9) have surfaced and the credits go to My Drivers. The Chinese website has posted about the specs of a smartphone that it claims is the HTC One (M9). The specs list shows the One (M9) boasting of some pretty solid specs.
To start with, the HTC One (M9) is rumoured to be boasting of a 5.5 inch QHD display. Going under the hood, you’ll find the latest Snapdragon 805 chipset which is by far the best we have seen in any smartphone till date. Along with that, you have 3 GB of RAM to go with it. There’s no news on the clock speed of the processor however.
Talking about the on-board storage, we have the 32 GB, 64 GB and the 128 GB memory variants of the One (M9) which again are the nominal choices keeping in mind the storage options that smartphones these days are offering. If that does not seem enough to you, there’s the microSD card slot to expand the memory upto your desired numbers.
Powering all this is a 3,500 mAh powerhouse that looks like a pretty smart option. A device this big and with the 805 Snapdragon chipset will use up on some amount of battery and the 3,500 mAh battery will cater to that, and at the same time will not make the device as heavy as devices with 4,000 mAh or above batteries.
Now comes the most interesting specs reported by this rumor. The source reports that the One (M9) will not be sporting the HTC’s UltraPixel technology that has received mixed reviews from users and most of them were not positive. The One (M9) will instead be sporting a 16 MP camera with optical image stabilization (OIS). To add to that, there are also rumors that the One (M9) will also be sporting Bose Audio.
The HTC One (M9) sure looks like a top of the line device and why not, it is HTC’s upcoming flagship. But like any other device before its launch, there are a lot of rumors surrounding it. Not all of them turn out to be true and we can’t guarantee this one either. Even if these rumors are true, don’t expect any announcements or official release before March next year in Barcelona .
This is the first leak about the HTC One (M9) and we’re sure we’ll see many more before its launch. Till then stay tuned and leave your views in the comments below.
