According to the latest reports the design will be almost the same. But let us not forget that HTC is actually mass introduced the aluminum casing for the premium smartphones. The One M8 design looks pretty close to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and it is very possible for Apple to took some notes before launch its flagship models.
There will be some slight differences. One is the two tone coloring – a silver and black. The silver one will have golden ornaments of the side which will make it more appealing.
The new smartphone will have 5-inch screen with 1080p resolution. One of the big novelties in HTC One M9 Hima will be the 20MP rear camera. It is vital for the Taiwanese company to have good camera, because this feature is lacking behind in the previous models.
The processor will be an octa-core 2GHz Snapdragon 810, the operating memory – 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The One M9 Hima will have a SD-card slot for further storage expansion. According to the latest leaks, which featured presentation pictures and listings, the new flagship will cost 749 euro in Germany.
