Today, @upleaks reports HTC won’t be using the M codenames anymore and the next flagship is now known as Hima. He reports another batch of specs of the next Android top dog – the successor of the HTC One (M8).
The HTC Hima is rumored to pack a 5.0″ display of 1080p resolution and to run on the top- notch Snapdragon 810 chip. The latter offers an octa-core processor with 4 Cortex-A57 cores at 2.0GHz and 4 Cortex-A53 cores at 1.5GHz, Adreno 430 GPU and 3GB or RAM.
HTC Hima should bring 20.7MP rear camera and a 13MP or 4MP UltraPixel front snapper LTE Cat.6 connectivity, a 2,840 mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop plus HTC Sense 7.0 UI complete the rumored specs list.
The HTC Hima is expected to be announced very soon, probably at CES, while it should launch in March. Upleaks claims the device is already testing in all major US carriers.
But wait, there is more. The popular tipster hints HTC will announce a few Desire smartphones at the MWC. HTC Hima Ace phone is also in the works – a more affordable edition of Hima (like the HTC One E8), with dual-SIM support.
