HTC One (M9) rumor touts 5.2-inch 2K resolution screen with Snapdragon 805 and 3GB of RAM

And that brings us to the rumored HTC One (M9). A report published on Monday suggests that we will see the HTC One (M9) unveiled during next year's MWC in Barcelona. The phone is rumored to feature a 5.2-inch screen with 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a fantastic 564ppi pixel density. Compare that to the 441ppi pixel density on the HTC One (M8), and you imagine how sharp and clear that screen is going to be.
Additionally, the speculation has the HTC One (M9) powered by a Snapdragon 805 CPU, and the handset will have 3GB of RAM inside. There will be a unit offering 64GB of native storage, and one with 128GB of memory available. Android 5.0 is believed to be pre-installed. A larger capacity battery, an IP certification reading higher than the current model's IPx3, and a higher MP camera on back are also believed to be part of the next flagship.
At one time, there was talk about a phablet-sized version of the HTC One (M8) that would include all the specs mentioned for the (M9), except for the size of the screen, which was rumored to measure 5.5-inches. It seems too late for the HTC One (M8) max to make an appearance in time for this year's holiday shopping season. Those seeking the latest and greatest specs on an HTC One, just might have to wait until early 2015 for the next iteration of HTC's flagship phone.
Thanks for the tip, Ajmal!

Sory to say but i bought xperia z3c and was disapointed with camera. In good light its fine (but my old htc one looks comparable) but in low light xperia z3compact looks like sh*t comparing to htc one m7. I made photos with both phones and i chose htc one. the only thing it lacks is some resolution but i dont crop pictures and overall pictures quality is better to me. I guess not to many pople do that with a smartphone camera. Sold xperia and bought htc back. Thats why i take all camera comparisons and phone reviews with grain of salt.

Shouldn't the title say either 2.5K or QHD as its resolution 1440x2560? Don't see the point of higher than 1080p for now unless the play movies and other media content get support for native QHD content. Still sounds like great phone with great specs, hope the storage options and water resistance is true!!

maybe the next HTC flagship will reign supremem as long as the logo on the front is removed, bigger battery (innovative battery at that), a drastically improved camera with minimun 13MP, and a support for a lifeproof case lol

Hope they go for a big pixel 13mp sensor and not the run of the mill crap they fitted on the E8 and mini 2, there's a new omnivision sensor with a 1/2.6" 13 megapixel which has a 1.3um pixel size.

HTC always keeps its flagship devices one step away from a title "PERFECT DEVICE" by putting one sh***y(low amount) spec(Battery or Camera) in it
