It doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait until March 1 to see HTC’s upcoming flagship. A listing found on Cyberport.de, via Evleaks, shows the device in full, from specs to design—and even price! What more do you want? If this is legit, it’s pretty much everything we’ve been expecting, and the design is indeed similar to the past few iterations, not that we’re complaining.
As we’ve been hearing, the new HTC One (M9) will feature a 20-megapixel camera, marking a big jump over last year’s M8; the front-facing camera will be just 4-megapixel (Ultra pixel); not out of the ordinary for HTC. Other specs include a 2GHz Snapdragon 810 processor, 5-inch 1080p screen, 3GB of RAM, a 2900mAh battery, 32GB of expandable storage, Android 5.0 Lollipop, BoomSound speakers and HTC Sense 7.
That sounds like a pretty typical (and expected) jump from year-to-year. The design has always been one of HTC’s strong suits, and that’s the headlining feature here once again. The listing describes HTC Sense 7 as featuring more customization options—there’s a mention of HTC Sense Home and Themes, allegedly allowing users to further adjust the look and feel. BlinkFeed will supposedly feature more news sources, allowing users to continuously stay connected.
There aren’t really any big surprises here—and that’s ok. Some people might be disappointed by the fact that HTC is sticking with a 1080p screen, but I don’t think it’ll bother most folks. I imagine HTC based that decision on how the screen affects battery life, and, anyway, HTC screens are always terrific.
The listing also reveals a possible price of €749, with a mention of April 9, 2015 as the release date. If that’s the case, we’ll see an announcement on March 1, and only have to wait about a month until the device is released, which is a pretty solid turnaround.
It’s very possible the listing was put up in error, so what’s listed might not be final, or even legit; for what it’s worth, EvLeaks referred to the pictures above as “non-final.” They’re definitely different compared to an image he shared in January, which you can see below.
We’ll find out officially on March 1.
