HTC's 2015 roadmap to be the best ever, "huge surprises" coming, says exec
It looks like HTC fans will have a great year in 2015. Jeff Gordon, HTC’s Senior Global Online Communications Manager, today tweeted that the company’s 2015 roadmap will be its “best ever”, including “some huge surprises that will blow you away.” That’s certainly a bold thing to say, and we can hardly wait to see exactly what these surprises are.

As far as we know, HTC’s 2015 roadmap should include, first and foremost, a successor to the One (M8). Currently codenamed HTC Hima, this successor seemingly sports a 5-inch 1080p display - so no changes here - while featuring a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 20 MP rear camera, and a 13 MP front-facing camera. Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense 7 UI should be on board. Obviously, these are unconfirmed features. A Hima Ultra variant, possibly sporting a 5.5-inch display with a higher pixel resolution (Quad HD?) may also be in the cards.

A new generation of HTC Desire smartphones will be introduced next year as well. The first new Desire models are expected to be announced next week at CES 2015. But it’s unlikely that we’ll see the HTC Hima then, as it’s been recently suggested

We’ll be here throughout 2015 to present you each and every upcoming HTC device, as soon as it’s officially announced (and, at times, maybe even sooner than that). What are your expectations when it comes to HTC's product roadmap for next year?
