Very few people would argue with the idea that the HTC One M8 was one of this years best smartphones. If it is not your top device, then it certainly would have made your top 10 and almost certainly your top 5. The metal cased M8 is a popular device among users and followed on quite successfully from last years HTC One M7. As such, the news of its successor is always going to be met with some trepidation. Will HTC manage to continue their good work and keep fans happy. Well, it looks like we are about to make our first snap judgement. Yes, the good folks over at My Drivers have managed to leak the specs for HTC’s next One device. As you would expect, it is going (at least according to the specs) under the guise HTC One M9 and as such continues the M name we have seen over the last models. There is some debate as to whether there will actually be two M9 models next year consisting of the standard M9 and the One M9 Prime. However, for now let’s just focus on the specs we are hearing for the HTC One M9.
So whats on offer? Well, the M9 (reportedly) comes with a 5.5″ QHD display. Inside the device will be loaded with 3GB RAM and a Snapdragon 805 processor. In terms of memory the M9 will come with options for storage including 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. In terms of cameras, the M9 departs from the traditional HTC UltarPixel camera and instead will come with a 16 MP rear camera, equipped with Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS). There was no mention on the front camera. Additional notable features include a 3500mAh battery and will come running (as you would expect) on Android 5.0 (Lollipop).
At the moment these are just rumored specs and as such we don’t know how precise they are. However, they do sound about right when factoring in what we see on the M8. What do you think? Do they sound like the HTC One M9? As 2015 is just around the corner we might not actually have to wait that long to find out. The M8 launched in the first half of 2014 and as such you would figure the M9 would launch round about the same time. Either way, let us know what you think and how accurate you think the specs sound.
