This suspected HTC One M9 Plus wallpaper suggests a Quad HD display

This suspected HTC One M9 Plus wallpaper suggests a Quad HD display
Excited about HTC's upcoming announcement of the HTC One M9? If you are, chances are that you've been keeping your ear to the ground, hoping for as many details as possible. The wallpaper stack that will supposedly come loaded on the M9 – glimpses of which we've been receiving on a daily basis for the past week – certainly qualifies.

We have two updates since Friday, when we last blogged about this. First off, we have two whole new wallpapers ready for download. And second, it is looking like the last one was ripped from the One M9 Plus' firmware, not the One M9's, seeing as its rocking a 2880 x 2560 pixel resolution.

Indeed, if you've been keeping track of this particular side story to the One M9, you'll know that the walls we've seen so far all had a resolution of 'just' 2160 x 1920 (scrollable), suggesting a 1080 x 1920 display for the smaller flagship. In case you didn't know, word on the street is that the One M9 Plus will have a slightly larger (5.1 or 5.2 inches), more pixel-dense screen.

Check the collection we've compiled so far right below, along with the latest (supposedly official) renders of the 5-inch HTC One M9.

So, FullHD for M9 and QHD for M9 plus? Nice. Also, love that wallpaper :)

looks thick, so we will see bigger battery.....hopefully.

That is 4k for m9 plus not qhd.

First of all qhd and QHD isn't the same resolution. Second of all the wallpaper is scrollable that's why the width is doubled.

With a MTK chip, this thing will perform like crap. They should go with the 805 for both phones. No probs for heating/throttling and can easily handle QHD and run like a beast on 1080p.

no 64bit architecture though

64-bit does as much bad as it does good If 64-bit was so much better than 32-bit, why did we use 32-bit in the first place or why haven't we switched to 128-bit yet. It's been hugely rumored that 64-bit is revolutionary; it's not. It's used as it can address more than 4 GB RAM. It can perform better or worse than 32-bit, depending on workload. And let me give you a spoiler, it consumes more RAM than 32-bit. The S805 seems to be the best bet currently for HTC after seeing the horrible throttling on G Flex 2.

You're half right... The other half is where we tell ARM to stop with their aarch64 "nonsense" and Google to quit on ART 64 bit. Oh and Intel for their NDK. That I'd like to see... If the chip guys refrain from ever producing "pure" 32 bit kits some time soon. Don't get mad just look at x86-64 PCs of today. Even the s**ttiest Atom from 3 years ago are 64 bit it's not something we the paying public can do anything about anyways. So the more productive stance to take is to tell the people in charge of the OS platform and app devs to get their s**t together instead of advocating that we should stay the 32 bit course. We want to but will the involved OEMs take the bait? We'll get the shaft should anyone plan to stick to their aarch32 guns. Enjoy your Cortex A7 Leadcore SoC lol I sure as hell won't. Point being I agree though that whenever the 1st Android 64 bit build ever gets out (probably this October or maybe Q1 2016) it's gonna take at least a couple of years maybe say well into Q4 2017 for us to see or get any real aarch64 benefits (if any). Apple just only mandated 64 bit apps' submission this month this year. Took 'em this long on their much more narrower controlled sys reqs and array of products so one can imagine Android's way tougher hurdle on a wider scope. Any fastest ARMv7 gen Android phone today can probably last 3 - 4 years more. Look at Android One. That means 32 bit Android isn't going away any time soon.

What do you mean. Android can reap all of 64-bit benefits. Any android app coded in Java( >90% of them) can be converted into a 64-bit compatible with just recompiling with a 64-bit kernel. I.E., around 90% of android apps are fully 64-bit compatible. 64-bit isn't bad, it just isn't as great and magical as people claim. However, ARMv8 is awesome.

I didn't say Android >can't< reap the benefits. I'm saying that it should when ones involved put their heads in together. Because right now you see that the top priority seems to be about how much QHD ppi can be crammed in at the highest available screen on time average :)

what are you smoking bro..it isn't grt???64 bit is the future ,64-bits chips can perform better parrell processing,they can more effectively utilize multiple processing cores on a device. ARM's big LITTLE architecture allows for high performance core to live along side lower power cores,allowing system to designate task to specific cores based on the computational power necessary.. increasing no of high graphics games and apps will come in future and it will be magical too see in small mobile device

ROFL. big.LITTLE, ARMv8 and 64-bit are in no way related and all you said represents how much you know.

whattttt???? go back to 32 bit mann..your are seriously a joker..armv8-A chips is a 64 bit processor ,why it is not related?

37. TyrionLannister unregistered

ARMv8 chips support 64-bit as well as 32-bit. You can't be more wrong.

who said armv8 and 64 bit is no way related?? dont change topic dude.. he is only saying armv8 is 64 bit architecture he doesnot talk about 32 bit support..it is obvious to support 32 bit

The 810 is definitely a better choice them the old 805 would be & their are other benefits to 64 bit beyond the ability to use more ram

MTK chip is for asian market..it will sport slightly overclocked sd810 on major markets

11. TyrionLannister unregistered

Overclocked SD 810!!! Don't go full on mad dude. 2.0 GHz is already making the chip overheat quite a bit. Also, the max. frequency of 810 is 2GHz. It's not like 801 which has 2 variants AB and AC with different clock speeds. I'd rather underclock the SoC to 1.7 GHz so that it doesn't throttle.

qualcomm claims that it is much more cooler then SD 801..it only goes upto 45 degree celsius while doing some heavy processing stuffs

I can live with the Galaxy s6 hype, But HTC hype is too much for me. Honestly who gives a dime about Android phones anymore? Anything that's not an iOS device sounds like a second class device to me.

Just quit trolling and stick to your beloved iOS and we'll all be happy

The iPhone 6 is the largest selling smartphone of all times.. So you think 75 million people in the world are stupid?

Course, since the majority of humanity is stupid. Check % of MENSA.

Yes I do. In fact that's why it's the largest selling smartphone of all time!
