There have been a lot of spec rumors regarding the upcoming HTC One M9 Hima, such as will it or won't it have a Quad HD screen, what processor will it have, and what camera module will the Taiwanese company use. Some of those questions have been cleared up after nowhereelse.fr found a new benchmark logged at AnTuTu that shows the hardware of the HTC One M9.
We have been hearing plenty about the upcoming HTC One M9, the company's upcoming smartphone that will serve as a new flagship that carries the codename Hima. Today we are getting a look at what is reported to be an official render of the device, revealing a handset that carries HTC's typical good looks. The render does not give us the clearest of looks at the handset though, but still this look like an interesting smartphone.
HTC has never been shy about offering a good deal and the company's latest "Hot Deal" promotion is a decent one to match some its better offerings from the past. If you purchase a smartphone through the company's official website you will get a 20% discount to save on your purchase. The deal is running right through the holiday period and will finish midnight EST on January 2nd, although you are limited to one handset.
HTC's upcoming One M9 flagship (currently codenamed Hima) will boast the same screen as the outgoing One M8 and it will be the same size as its predeceasing device. That's the story according to serial snitch @upleaks.
Remember a couple of months ago when all the mobile heavyweights were launching smartphones? HTC was one of the company's that was reportedly ready to jump on the wearable trend and even had a product ready. However, the Taiwanese company decided to pull the plug on its first smartwatch, saying at the time that the market was not ready and was too crowded. That decision was upheld, but the company is not turning its back on wearables completely and will launch a smartwatch in March.
HTC announced way back at Google's I/O event (when Android 5.0 was first announced) that it would update its One M8 and One M7 smartphones to the new platform within 90 days of its release. The company reconfirmed that commitment when Android Lollipop launched last month and it looks as though the Taiwanese giant will better its promise.
HTC raised the curtain on the solid mid-range Desire 620 back last month, and the handset is expected to land in the company's Taiwan homeland this month. Any brief worries that this would be an Asian exclusive smartphone have quickly been dashed as HTC confirmed the Desire 620 is also bound for Europe in January.
There are already some solid spec rumors doing the rounds regarding the upcoming HTC One M9, but now we are having our first look at a possible piece of the device. The image you see above is claimed to be the front panel of the flagship, and it looks like HTC is making a device that has very little in terms of bezel.
After a short delay it seems that HTC is finally ready to begin rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop to the One M8 Google Play Edition. Mo Versi, a company executive, confirmed on Twitter that HTC had received the necessary data approval from Google and is now pushing out the 5.0 bump for the One M8 GPE over the air (OTA).
T-Mobile had some solid Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales this year so I imagine plenty of you got a bargain from the Magenta Network. The Uncarrier is not finished though as it has a deal that is running through the whole of the Holiday Season to the end of the year. Customers can now grab either the HTC One M8 or HTC One M8 for Windows at a cut price, with both losing $50 off their normal price.
