HTC Hima Ace Plus specs leak; 20MP rear camera, 3GB of RAM and a fingerprint scanner
The HTC Hima Ace Plus is a rumored phablet version of the next flagship phone for HTC. According to a leak out of Portugal, this monster of a handset will feature a 5.5-inch screen carrying a resolution of 1440 x 2560. The panel is said to be sans side bezels, and the stereo BoomSound speakers will be on the top and bottom similar to the current design of HTC's phones.

Under the hood will be a octa-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 810 with 3GB of RAM inside, along with 32GB of native storage. No word on whether there will be a microSD slot, but considering that HTC added one last year to the HTC One (M8), it is a strong possibility. Even more exciting is the 20MP camera expected on the back of the HTC Hima Ace Plus. The front camera will be the HTC One (M8)'s current 4MP ultrapixel snapper. A 3000mAh battery keeps the ceiling fan turning. Sense 7.0 will be running on top of Lollipop.

Lastly, there is speculation that the HTC Hima Ace Plus will include a fingerprint scanner (hopefully not in the same location as the one found on the HTC One max) that will work even when the screen is off. The bad news is that this model is not expected to see the light of day at MWC in March. In fact, according to the rumor, the HTC Hima Ace Plus may not be released until August or September of this year.

We would suggest that you head to the spice rack. You might want to take this rumor with a grain of salt. Consider that last year we kept hearing about the HTC One (M8) max, a phablet-sized version of HTC's current flagship model which unfortunately, never appeared.

Thanks for the tip Bacelar!

Exactly my thoughts. That location seems to be the proper location to put a finger scanner on big phones.

The specs are all good except the omission of SD card. Why HTC why ???

Apparently they are talking about the Hima "ACE PLUS" which is different from the regular Hima. Even so, this is not from a reliable source, just one blog copy and pasting false info from another blog...

at that time in Aug/Sep this spec will be just so-so. Hope they can sell this at around $400.

I didn't know there will be a quad-core 810, have only heard of octa-core.

Probably a misunderstood typo.
I doubt QC lopped off the A53s, never know though.

This to me is a sign, the mobile "ARMS" race is slowing down and THANK GOD!!!!! I love innovation and all, but I'd prefer like 18 month cycles for smartphones instead of 12 months...stresses me out as a fan LOL...

Anyways, I was thinking about the HTC Hima's leaked size and how people were complaining it was too big for a 5 inch phone and I'm like...dafuq? The phone is narrower than the Galaxy S4 and shorter than the original HTC One M8... Wutdafuq more could these overcritical internet geeks want...a 5 inch phone that has no bezels and is all screen so you can't hold it? LOL.

Well that would kinda screw the people that dont fall on your upgrade cycle why should they have to buy a 10 month old top of the line phone just because u bought something and are mad something better is out??

Fingerprint scanner on the back of device is not a bad spot .... Not sure why you don't like that? I prefer on the back then the front with increased bezels

Does anyone need an invite for the one plus one? I have an invite and the phone is not yet available in my country.

Sounds sort of interesting. Might consider it a my next phone but 32 GB of internal storage just isn't enough anymore. My 64 GB OnePlus One for $363 delivered really has changed my perspective on flagship phones.

• 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor

• Adreno 420 graphics


• 32-, 64- or 128GB storage

• 5in full-HD (1920x1080) screen with Gorilla Glass 4

I stopped reading after Snapdragon 805. You can't say that it has the best specs when it doesn't even have the best processor.

Probably, It has touch-type fingerprint scanner such as Apple iphone, Hauwei Ascend Mate7 and Oppo N3. Previously, One Max model has swipe-type fingerprint scanner such as Samsung S5 and Note 4 but also Samsung has touch sensor this S6.

There is no S810 running at 2.3 GHz...it has to be S801/S805

As long as HTC makes their phones' bezels thick, I wouldn't buy their product even if they sold them for $1!

Why naming HTC Hima Ace Plus? Why not only Hima or Hima Ace or Hima Plus? Why they using names alike Samsung?

Anyways trimmed down your bezels HTC you are going well now-a-days.

It is the code name for the device, just like "bacon" stands for the OnePlus One.

Even HTC is going for the Plus moniker. /facepalm

ain't it the high time to go for a 4 GB RAM ?
And i had a question, which is better? LPDDR3 4 GB RAM or LPDDR4 3 GB RAM ?

posted on 14 Jan 2015, 12:59

32. medicci37 (Posts: 1278; Member since: 19 Nov 2011)

I think 3gigs of LPDDR4 would be better. Seems like the more ram they put on Android the more is wasted

35. mostafawael.1998 (Posts: 240; Member since: 01 Oct 2014)

so if i am to choose between a DR3 4 GB RAM and a DR4 3 GB RAM, i choose the 3 GB RAM because it is faster ?
well, didn't expect such an answer :D

Amazon is showing several screen protectors and a case or two for the HTC Hima Ace with an availability date of April 17-18. So I'm thinking/hoping possibly a March announcement with an April release date.

About a month or so ago PA (and other sites) published leaks for 3 "Hima" devices; Hima (5.0 display), Hima Ultra (5.5 display) and Hima Ace (smaller model). So I wonder how valid this Ace Plus leak is.

In the past we've seen a lot of wonderfully specified phones that 1) never make it to the US market 2) when brought to market don't have the same specs or 3) cost you your first born child. If HTC could have brought this to the 2014 holiday market it would have been a big winner but if its not available until the 2015 holiday season, not so much.

Wake up HTC! You better have something in the 5.5" QHD variety with all the above mentioned specs ready to launch before end of March! And don't forget an amazing front and rear camera this time, increased screen to body ratio, micro sd card slot, and all the other goods. Don't let us down here!
