If the latest rumor is to hold true, HTC’s line-up is about to get very interesting. The Taiwanese manufacturer’s M series has always been known for housing flagship devices, but it seems there may be a new breed of HTC smartphones in the works.

This rumored handset is said to be named the HTC One X9. We have a set of stunning specs and a nice promotional flyer to go with this murmur, but we would be a bit wary of their accuracy due to the fact that the rumored components look more like they come from an M series handset. And we also can’t stand behind the sources so far.

The flyer simply displays the murmured smartphone, a beautiful background and a quote that says “Packed with city smarts” (whatever that even means). But it’s the stapled specs that have us scratching our heads (and being hopeful that these rumors are true).


Reports claim this phone is to have a 5-inch QHD (2560×1440) resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (or MediaTek Helio X20) processor, 4 GB of RAM, a 23 MP rear camera, a 4 MP UltraPixel front-facing shooter and 64 GB to 128 GB of internal storage. All powered by a sizable 3500 mAh battery.

The image also shows capacitive hardware buttons and what look like BoomSound front-facing speakers; all in usual HTC fashion. As we said above, it’s hard to say how accurate these details are, though.

Does all of this information add up for you? I believe a phone like this wouldn’t make much sense, unless HTC is thinking of changing its usual naming scheme. This does sound more like an HTC One M device to me, at least considering the specs. We won’t know for sure until more details show up, though. That is, if they ever do. Regardless, it will all be discovered in due time.

But what do you guys think? Are you digging this rumored handset?
