HTC One M9 Specs Leak: 5.2-inch QHD display and Snapdragon 805 inbound

HTC One M8

The smartphone space has come a long way in the seven months since the HTC One M8 launched back in March, and now the Taiwanese manufacturer looks ready to respond.

A handset which could return the company to smartphone supremacy, the HTC One M9 specs sheet has leaked with a bounty of high-end components in tow.

Surfacing courtesy of claimed insiders, it has been suggested that the HTC One M9 will mimic the LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in adopting a QHD display.

According to reports, the stunning 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution will be stretched over a 5.2-inch form resulting in a sharp, 564 pixels-per-inch image density.

Further echoing the Note 4, HTC’s future flagship has also been tipped to run a 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor. Based on recent leaks, this could be the same chipset as that heading to the Sony Xperia Z4.

The early reports have added that the iPhone 6 rival will touch down towards the start of 2015, possibly around Barcelona’s MWC gathering in early March.

What else can you expect from the HTC One M9? Well, given HTC’s success in the field, a stunningly sleek, brushed metal uni-body design is all but guaranteed. As is the addition of Google’s latest Android 5.0 Lollipop mobile OS.

Given the less than official avenues which have seen these M9 specs come to light, we suggest you have that trusty pinch of salt at the ready.

How about a proper camera.

What most importantly I want is change in design. Only thing I didn't like the one series and desire series of htc is the screen and speaker orientation. The screen is not positioned in the center of the phone, as the lower bezel is larger than the top bezel. So are the speakers. One speaker is close to the screen while the other one is away from the screen on the other side . With the onscreen keys the usable screen area moves further away .So there is no symmetry in the design of these phones. But htc butterfly S, butterfly 2, and other brand phones like moto
G2, Nexus 6, Sony Z3 which all are dual speaker phones have equal sized bezels at the top and bottom and the speakers are positioned at equal distances on both sides of the screen thus the screen comes exactly in the center of the phone and between the speakers and even with the onscreen keys the viewable area of the screen doesn't move away much. So I am expecting M9 to have equal sized compact bezels at the top and bottom so the screen comes exactly in the center of the phone and both speakers placed equidistantly on both sides of the screen. Also make the speaker abit louder and a battery that gives atleast 13 hours of continuos web browsing.

I think quad HD phones are a mistake. Battery is shorter and stuttering is granted.

I agree too on this. Full HD is enough.

Huge mistake on not waiting for the snapdragon 810, this phone will be crushed by the other manufacturers with in a month or two of it's release. It's really too bad cause I really love HTC's aesthetic design.

Qhd is alot better on battery life with Android 5.0 so idk what to think about that I would like to to see a higher ultra pixel camera and osi I would also like to see some sort of water resistances definitely a bigger battery new additions I would like to see a rear bass speaker and Harmon karmomn standard 32 base hard drive with expansion SD card slot quick charge technology and front flash.... Might be out of budget but a sapphire screen or at least sapphire camera lens

5.5 inches or I'm going elsewhere I'm afraid.

They had better solve their camera problem. This appears to be HTC's main weakness. The only reason I'm not buying an M8 is because the picture quality is so low (worse than my two-year-old Droid 4, which itself is worse than the Droid 2 I had before it).

@Rixware.... M8 has a microSD, why would M9 not?

Camera is just fine for what it is, autofocus is fast night shots are good and resolution is fine for social media. Are you taking photos for National Geographic or something...what the heck are you using your smartphone camera for lol??

HTC got everything right with the M8 except for the camera. Beautiful industrial design and solid build quality, bright, crisp screen, snappy performance, great battery life, and impressive-sounding speakers. All they need to do IMO is put in a capable camera module with OIS and at least 13 MP, and I'd gladly upgrade my M8. I don't think 2K resolution is at all important on a 5.2" screen; I'd rather see improvements over battery life! I'm a bit surprised that the Snapdragon 810 isn't planned... the 805 is pretty much present-day tech, not of 2015.

Camera needs to be updated if I am going to stay with HTC. I see many requesting a camera update. So I hope HTC is listening and will blow us away with an incredible update in this department alone.
