HTC's first fitness band expected to be announced alongside the One (M9) at MWC 2015

HTC's first fitness band expected to be announced alongside the One (M9) at MWC 2015
HTC already confirmed that it would host a press event on March 1, at MWC 2015. While we're all expecting the company to announce the One (M9) / Hima flagship smartphone on that day, it looks like HTC will have an extra surprise for us.

According to Forbes, the One (M9) will be unveiled alongside HTC's very first fitness band - which, as previously reported, is made in collaboration with Under Armour.

There aren't any specific details regarding the fitness band, but Forbes has some things to share about the One (M9). Reportedly, most of the recent leaks "have been largely accurate." The new HTC flagship is expected to be an incremental upgrade over the One (M8), which would explain why it doesn't appear to look too different from the old model. The One (M9) should feature a 1080p display, "the latest" Snapdragon processor (this can only be the octa-core Snapdragon 810), 3 GB of RAM, and a 20 MP rear camera that doesn't use HTC's UltraPixel technology. Android 5.0 Lollipop and an enhanced Sense UI - Sense 7 - will also be part of the One (M9) experience. Moreover, an Under Armour Record fitness tracking app will be pre-installed on the handset to sync with the upcoming HTC band.

Forbes further mentions that HTC has no plans to release a smartwatch, at least not for now. Even so, the Hima / One (M9) and a fitness band should be enough for an exciting March 1 event, wouldn't you agree?
