HTC One M9 specs leak with 20.7-megapixel camera in tow

A number of claimed HTC One M9 specs have leaked online, suggesting the handset will be a 5-inch, Full HD powerhouse.

Surfacing courtesy of a leaked AnTuTu benchmark test, the HTC One M9 specs have suggested that the upcoming HTC One M8 follow-on will overlook the now popular move to an LG G3 and Galaxy Note 4 mimicking QHD display in favour of a more traditional 1080p offering.

Instead of focussing on minor visual enhancements, it appears the Taiwanese manufacturer looks set to target its efforts on a dramatically improved camera combination.

According to the latest leaks, as reported by NoWhereElse, the HTC One M9 specs sheet will see a 20.7-megapixel rear-mounted camera line up alongside a 13-megapixel selfie snapper.

This is a major step up on the 4-Ultrapixel and 5-megapixel combination found on the One M8.

If that’s not enough to tempt you, Qualcomm’s latest 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor is also set to make an appearance alongside Adreno 430 graphics and 3GB of RAM.

Although it is currently unclear what the M9 will look like, it is expected that the handset will adopt a sleek, brushed metal finish similar to its predecessors.

As with previous leaks, it has again been suggested that the One M9 will adopt an all new naming convention and actually be known as the HTC Hima come launch.

Although recent leaks have suggested HTC could make its first formal appearance during CES 2015 next week, we believe a post MWC unveiling in March is far more likely.

Instead, it has been suggested that the upcoming Las Vegas-based convention will see HTC out its first wearable device alongside a new Desire-branded handset.
