HTC One M9 to be released in Americas starting on April 10th; overheating rumors addressed
Nothing was said about the alleged software flaw that prevented HTC's new flagship from launching in Taiwan on March 16th as expected. There is speculation that a new launch date of March 20th is being targeted by HTC for the release of the handset in its own backyard. Since this was not brought up during the webcast, we are unsure whether this bug might have set back the release of the device in the Americas.
Mr. Mackenzie did address the rumors about the HTC One M9 overheating due to an issue with the Snapdragon 810 SoC. As we passed along the other day, benchmark tests of the various phones showed that the unit ran the hottest with a surface temperature measured at 132 degrees fahrenheit. That compares to the 102 degree reading taken of the HTC One (M8) and the 100 degrees measured on Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Mackenzie said that HTC would not release a phone unless it was confident that it had a quality product to offer consumers.
