According to @evleaks, both the HTC M9 and HTC M9 Prime should be introduced in the first quarter of 2015. Surprisingly, it’s said that the M9 Prime is supposed to be released before the regular M9.
Unfortunately, there are absolutely no details on what features the M9 and M9 Prime should bring. In any case, it makes sense for us to expect the Prime to be more advanced, and more expensive. Design-wise, we’re assuming that the upcoming HTC handsets won’t stray too much from their predecessor (the One M8). We recently saw a couple of HTC M9 concept designs, but it’s hard to believe that the real M9 will look anything like them.
The allegedly canceled One M8 Prime was rumored to feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) screen, Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, and LTE-A Cat. 6. We’re thinking that at least one of the new M9 models may have similar features. But we’ll see what happens.
