A tweet reading, Old habits die hard…, features a timeline showing HTC s flagship devices. Evleaks rendition of the forthcoming flagship device is much sleeker than before and is unlike the photos that have surfaced online recently. Also seen is a large front-facing camera and what looks like a physical back button possibly with a fingerprint scanner integrated.
Interestingly there are two devices in the photo, which is in line with earlier reports that the company will be launching a bigger variant of the flagship One (M9). According to leakster @Upleaks the bigger variant is known by the codename Hima_Ultra. The bigger variant is the one getting the fingerprint scanner.
From what we have heard so far, the One (M9) is expected to boast a 5-inch full HD (1920 1080 pixels) display with a density of 441ppi, and will be powered by a 2GHz Snapdragon 810 processor paired with Adreno 430 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The smartphone is also likely to feature a 20.7-megapixel rear camera, 13-megapixel selfie camera, and on the software front run on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop wrapped under Sense 7 UI.
The Hima_Ultra, on the other hand, is expected to feature a 5.5-inch display, powered by a MediaTek processor, and will be limited to South Asian markets.
In addition to unveiling the One (M9), HTC is also expected to take the wraps off its first-ever wearable device. The smartwatch is expected to be heavily focused on fitness, which was evident from the company s recent partnership with American sportswear maker Under Armour. According to publications, the device could be an electronic bracelet with Google Now integration and capability to play music.
