HTC One (M9) specs rumored, include 5.5-inch display, no UltraPixel camera

HTC One (M9) specs have been leaked. It's just a rumor, for now, but a 5.5-inch display and no more UltraPixel camera are a good start for HTC's next flagship phone.

If manufacturers like HTC plan to continue their trend of launching new flagship devices at Mobile World Conference, they best be figuring out just what those next phones will be right away. A rumor has popped up of leaked specs, showing that HTCis on their way to launching the HTCOne (M9).

For starters, this rumor offers up the continuation of the “One” naming scheme. Fair enough, most of us are comfortable with calling them the M7, M8 and now the M9 anyway.

From there, we see a specs list that is right on par with the latest and greatest phones out there. A 5.5-inch QHD display is a good start. The Snapdragon 805 processor is a solid choice, for now, and 3GB of RAM should keep any phone ticking along at a decent pace.

Internal storage options should start at 32GB, with 64GB and 128GB satisfying our upgraded needs. Of course, a microSD slot ensures we never run out of space.


Stepping things up from there, a 3500mAh battery is a smart power option. In most cases, lugging around 4000mAh makes for a heavy device, but anything in the neighborhood of 3200mAh or lower produces unsatisfactory battery life on a phone this size for the average user.

The best news here, if this rumor is to be believed, is the updated 16MP camera with optical image stabilization (OIS). Not to say that HTC’s UltraPixel technology was a failure, but it certainly has not been well received by those that look at the specs sheets. We’ve heard from many users that have passed on the HTC One (M8) because of the 4MP sensor.

Further, there is mention of a HTCOne (M9) Prime that could be sporting Bose audio. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

We do not expect the HTCOne (M9) to be announced, let alone find its way to store shelves, until next March in Barcelona. However, this is just the beginning, we are sure we’ll see plenty of further rumors and leaks before then. Stay tuned.

What do you think, do these initial specs meet your HTCOne (M9) expectations?
