Next HTC One (M9) Flagship specs leak

HTC One E8

The Next HTC flagship which will most likely be called the HTC One M9 is now under the rumor mill spotlight, and today we have received  alleged specs of this upcoming smartphone from a source on Chinese social media. We expect this high-end device to be launched in the first quarter of next year.

See the specs below:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset
  • 3GB of RAM
  • A  5.5” QHD or 2K display
  • A 16MP camera with optical image stabilization (yes, we are tired of the gimmicky Ultrapixles)
  • A 3,500mAh battery,
  • Stereo speakers with Bose technology

We hope to also see  64-bit Snapdragon 810 silicon 64-bit Snapdragon 810 silicon from this Taiwanese phone maker. Lets face it, any high-end smartphone next year should have the specs above so we shall take these rumors with a  pinch of salt when you read through them.

    5.5″ screen with the boomsound (highly doubt Bose tech) would cause the phone to be way to tall. Even if they get rid of the HTC logo on the front. The M8 is already tall and awkward, anymore height wouldn’t make any sense. I came from the Galaxy Nexus -> HTC M7 -> HTC M8, the height is an issue.

    As for the camera I rather a great 8mp then a average 16mp. HTC has driven their low light performance with their ultra pixel camera for 2 years now, and arguably it’s still the best low light performer. A 16mp would make it impossible for them to even come close to the same performance in that category, look at the Galaxy S5 with all their advancements in their camera and still not on par in low light. A finely tuned 8 – 10 ultrapixel would be better. Look how refined the IPhone 6+ camera is at 8mp, there’s a reason Apple is staying at that 8mp count and it shows.

    3gig of ram, bigger battery and better processor are a given. 2k resolution screen unfortunately they will have to do to stay competitive. I wish they’d wait till the LCD tech on 2k screens catches up to the 1080p screens in color accuracy, and brightness with power efficiency to match. If they do then they’ll be a year behind everyone else, because we know EVERYONE is going to be using a 2k screen next year.

    End result though it’ll still be an amazing phone with random quirks.

      Totally agree with you, on the camera although I feel Ultra pixel gives very low res in daylight I totally love the night shots is low light. I guess they might also pull the same move they did with the Desire EYE, with two high res cameras front and back. I also wish it cd be 8 MP cause thats good enough.

      As for the screen am sure HTC will find away of increasing screen real estate to 5.5-inches while keeping their front-faceing boom sound. Look at the Sharp’s Aquos Crystal with the screen it’s self having conductive speakers. Anything can happen. Till we shall see what HTC has in stock for us we wait.
