HTC One M9, Successor to M8, Coming this March; to Hop on to MWC Showcase

January 20, 2015, By Alex Badinici

It seems like Taiwanese phone maker HTC is taking firm steps to bring their wider plan to a bigger arena. Rumors are that the company is set to steal the show this year at the Mobile World Congress with an Utopian charmer from its stables.

On Friday, HTC sent out invites with just a label that just said ‘Utopia in Progress’. And it does make some sense to believe that the Utopia they are hinting is none other than the successor to HTC One M8.  The device will be called HTC One M9.

If everything goes as planned, we might be witness to the HTC One M9 launch on March 1st when the curtains go up on MWC 2015 in Barcelona.

Much has already been said of the One M9 smartphone. Codenamed HIMA, the smartphone is expected to be lifting its display front to newer levels with the induction of a quad-HD display (1440 x 2560). But that would hold true only if the plans are to amplify the screen size, which means the 5-inch screen in HTC One M8 might be replaced probably with a 5.2 inch screen or 5.5 inches of screen real estate.

On the hardware front, it’s most likely that we will be having a Snapdragon 810 64-bit chipset being placed under the hood, with a 3GB RAM boosting its memory consumption. The graphical interface will be aided by the Adreno 430 GPU.

Further, news is that it will also be featuring a 20 megapixel front cam, which would be accompanied by the 13 MP camera too.

A 2840mAh battery is rumored to be finding its place under the all-aluminium hood, which many believe to be coming under the prequisites of a smartphone beast. However, HTC got it right with the minimized battery back-up by offering an optimized performance, and the same can be expected to be carried forward to its successor.

HTC One M9 will be running the Android 5 Lollipop operating system, and will also be featuring the Sense 7 interface by HTC.

The device will not be the sole child of HTC to be featured at the MWC. The company will also be launching a couple of other premium tablets, a measure initiated to fade out the sub-premium design criticisms of its Nexus tablet.

We still have more than a month before HTC comes up with the new launches. More leaks can be expected in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
