Rumors are abound about the status of HTC’s next flagship, the HTC Hima, also known as the M9.
According to Digital Trends, Upleaks stated the Hima may arrive on the four major carriers in March 2015. It also claimed the announcement of the device would not occur at Mobile World Congress that same month. Potentially, HTC may hold its own independent event for the smartphone.
On the other hand, Nowhereelse.fr writer Steve Hemmerstoffer tweeted a leaked press release showing the HTC Hima would arrive instead at CES 2015 in January.
There is no confirmation yet on the authenticity of the rumors or the press release.
There is also a bit of speculation that the HTC Hima and M9 are actually separate devices. Between the two, the Hima would be the flagship with a slightly larger screen and marginally better specs.
Still, the device is likely to have at least a 5.0-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 805 or 810 processor (the latter matching an AnTuTu benchmark supposedly of the device), and a 3,500mAh battery. Of course, BoomSound speakers and a uni-body, metal casing are expected.
