One of the devices that are making a huge fuss is the HTC One M9 – or some call it as Hima. Since the HTC One M8 has been one of the best devices in 2014, it is pretty normal and logical to expect even better increase for the new successor, the M9 or Hima.
There were previous rumors claiming that some cool features with improved specs will be added for the M9, including 810 Snapdragon processor, Super LCD3 full HD display with its 5 inch dimension, 430 Adreno graphic card and also memory system RAM 3GB; not to mention the 20MP camera for the back and 13MP camera on the front with improved feature for selfie usage. It is claimed that the M9 will be super thin with only 7mm of thickness.
New Changes and Improvements
Among the many improvements and changes happening to the upcoming flagship device, HTC will be ditching the name Hima, and focuses more on calling it HTC One (M9). In fact, they even plan to ditch off the brackets, so the device will be called as HTC One M9 – this may seem unimportant for some people, but it is important for the others.
Aside from the name, HTC decides that they will keep the all metal structure and leave it undisturbed. The design and quality alone looks gorgeous in its simplicity, with refined looks and models – not the revolutionized form from the M8 previous design. Along with all metal structure, addition for two tone gold and silver finish is also added, creating more exclusive and luxurious feel to the whole design. moreover, the power button is moved to a better and more comfortable position, located on the right side for more practical usage, although HTC can do something better with the microUSB port.
The previous rumor about 7mm thickness is proven to be untrue, since the M9 will be coming with 9.6mm arrangement, which is actually thicker than the previous M8 with its 9.4mm. It is likely that the newer and bigger 2900 mAh battery is responsible for that, as opposed to the ‘only’ 2600 mAh battery in M8. Despite the bigger size, the new battery is claimed to be lighters, with new 157.5 gram in total weight when compared to previous 160g. However, the slight difference is almost unnoticeable, so you won’t feel a thing, actually.
It is possible that the M9 will be coming with 5 inch display screen with 1080p quality. Although the previous rumor said that it will be coming with 2K panel, HTC seems to decide that the current arrangement is more perfect and somewhat right. The device will have 810 Snapdragon 64 bit processor that is paired with RAM 3GB, along with optional storage containers of 64GB and 128GB. Besides all those goodies, the device is claimed to come packing with good sound system with powerful speaker of Dual BoomSound and Bose tech, although these have to be confirmed yet.
You should find out more when HTC is releasing their products in March the 1st, before MWC starts. Just wait and see for further official confirmation.
