HTC Hima Ace and some Hima Ultra variants expected be powered by MediaTek processors
The often praised HTC One (M8) will soon have a successor, though this may not be called One (M9) - because HTC could be ditching this naming scheme. Right now, the upcoming smartphone is referred to as the HTC Hima, and we heard that we might see a Hima Ace, and a Hima Ultra version being released alongside the regular model.

According to @upleaks, the Hima Ace will be powered by a MediaTek processor. This kind of makes sense, as the Ace is expected to be a cheaper, plastic-made alternative to the regular Hima - which should feature a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor. As for the Hima Ultra, it’s said that “at least” its China-bound variant will also have a MediaTek heart inside.

Seeing that the regular HTC Hima should sport a 5-inch 1080p display, the Hima Ultra could have a larger screen with a higher resolution (Quad HD, anyone?). That, however, is pure speculation.

HTC could announce the Hima in the first quarter of 2015, not at CES or MWC, but during a separate event.

Since earlier this year, HTC is already using MediaTek chipsets for its smartphones: handsets like the Desire 310, Desire 516, and Desire 820s are all powered by processors from the Taiwanese chipmaker (with the 820s featuring an octa-core, 64-bit model).

Naturally, we’ll be keeping a close eye on all the HTC Hima-related rumors, and get back to you when new details are available.
