With our countdown timer telling us that just over 7 hours remain until HTC starts the event that will result in the launch of the HTC One M9, the device appears to have been leaked on Best Buy's site. The electronics retailer has the AT&T branded 32GB model in Gray priced at $649.99 with free shipping. Instead of a delivery date, the listing says that the device is "Coming Soon."
Best Buy also confirms that the device will carry a 5-inch Super LCD3 display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. A 64-bit octa-core 2GHz Snapdragon 810 CPU is under the hood with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available for those desiring more memory. The new and improved 20MP camera graces the back of the device, and that infamous 4MP Ultrapixel camera that used to pass for the rear camera on the HTC One (M7) and HTC One (M8) is now the selfie shooter in the front. The battery capacity is not listed, but is believed to be 2840mAh. Android 5.0 is pre-installed.
The countdown timer is still ticking away. The HTC media event starts at 10am EST. It wouldn't seem that there is much mystery left, but we are awaiting word on the HTC One M9 Plus and an HTC smartwatch. Keep it right here as PhoneArena is live in Barcelona!
Thanks for the tips everyone!
