HTC’s newest flagship, the One (M9), will launch on March 1st as part of MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona. The company might also launch the One (M9) Plus alongside the One (M9), though those are just rumors at this point. Anyhow, we’ve seen a lot of leaks and rumors regarding their upcoming One (M9) handset, even some benchmarks leaked. Well, this newest leak which comes from Twitter, reveals some additional One (M9) spec details.
According to this leak, the device will feature a 20-megapixel snapper on the back, which will boast f/2.2 aperture and 27.8mm lens equivalent. What does this mean? Well, assuming that this is true, we’re not looking at Sony’s 20-megapixel sensor, but something completely different. The leak also mentions some specs that have leaked many times before, says that the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 64-bit octa-core processor (4 cores clocked at 2GHz, another four at 1.5GHz) along with an Adreno 430 GPU for graphics. Android 5.0.2 is also mentioned here, once again confirming the One (M9) will be running Android Lollipop at launch.
According to a previous CompuBench listing, this handset will also feature a 5-inch 1920 x 1200 display and 3GB of RAM. 32GB of internal storage was also listed, though the device will be available in multiple storage variants. CompuBench listing did mention Android 5.0.1, while this new leak says the device will run Android 5.0.2, it remains to be seen which one of the two will be. Also, the clock rates differ in CompuBench’s listing, but those are only tiny details that can change by the time this device launches. We’ll find out everything on March 1st when HTC will launch this device, but considering the amount of leaks we’ve seen thus far, we have a rather good idea what the device will both look like and what specifications will it sport in the end.
It seems like HTC decided to kick it up a notch when it comes to the camera sensor, and that they’ll stick with the metal unibody design. Let us know if you like what you’ve seen thus far, and do you intend to purchase this device once it’s available?
