HTC Hima (One M9) expected to be available in gray, silver, and gold
HTC’s One (M8) will soon be 1-year old, which means a successor to it is just around the corner. While we were expecting this successor to be called One (M9), recent reports suggest that HTC plans to opt for a different naming scheme.

The upcoming smartphone is reportedly codenamed HTC Hima, and should offer plenty of high-end features to lure HTC fans (and not only), including: a 64-bit, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 20.7 MP rear camera, and a 2840 mAh battery.

According to @upleaks, the new HTC flagship handset will be available in three color variants: gray, silver, and gold. As you may know, the One (M8) was available in exactly the same color versions at launch, with others (like red and blue) being introduced later on. @upleaks also says that he can “confirm” that the screen of the Hima is a 5-inch 1080p one, not a 5.2-inch or 5.5-inch one, as some rumors wanted us to believe.

HTC might be ready to release the Hima in March 2015. Besides the regular Android-based model, we could also see a Windows-based one, plus an HTC Hima Ultra (which may sport a larger display). While we can't confirm any of the details presented above, most of them make perfect sense. But we'll see what happens next year.

P.S.: Pictured above is the HTC One (M8) in gold, silver, and gray.

these leaks seem fake. how can HTC release 1080p screen phone in 2015 when all others have Quad HD it just doesn't make sense. therefore all this leaks are fake.

How can they?! Are you serious? What's the point in putting a 1440p resolution on a 5" screen? If it was above 5.5" then it would be ok. Despite the evolution of smartphone screens, it really isn't necessary to have a 600+ ppi on such a small screen. It also saves battery life, which is more important to most of us than having a pimped out display. Like 1080p isn't amazing enough.. Plus there comes lollipop which saves battery life by itself. I highly doubt that any manufacturer will put a quad HD resolution on a 5" display! I can't wait for the M9, it's the only future device that I'm really looking forward to.

I don't see 2k/1440p screen coming to the new HTC assuming that it packs a 5'0 screen. Probably HTC will be saving that for HTC Max

Posts: 1478; Member since: Jun 19, 2014 Btw, why they should take that "space" out of their "space gray" name this year ? Btw2, Apple and HTC got an cross licencing agrement for 10 years - if HTC will pay they can use same things as Apple - including making gold colored aluminium.

it doesn't work like that you don't just pay to use the same color, unless you are a lawyer on htc or apple team you dont know what the cross licencing is for specifically, why do you think the apple 6 phone looks like a bad ripoff of the htc phone. apple didnt know what to do for new style so the took the company that won m7 best looking phone award and forced them into this knowing that they had money problems and had them sign it or else. they sue them and apple has more lawyers that can lie on que htc doesnt

Gun metal gray is the best. I have never liked a color like this for so long. I like how shiny my phone is

Hopefully HTC can get something to market soon. Qualcomm 810 + LPDDR4 + 5" 1080p screen should be something that just screams. Well, provided Qualcomm 810 isn't a dud... like it is rumored to be.

I feel the 64-bit chip is more important than a QHD display, especially when the device sports a display size 5.5" or less.

I think hat QHD screens are a gimmick if your screen size is lower than 5.5" and they also eat a lot of resources and battery so I am super happy with HTC choice for screen resolution. If it comes with a snapdragon 810 and a decent camera I will buy it in a instance !

micah you would get one anyways the 1080 vs qhd is one area people are forgiven right now untill power consumption is under control you should not waste time on it battery problems are the biggest issue with phones.
