You probably didn't notice but the most hyped flagship handset for the first half of 2014 was neither Samsung's Galaxy S5 nor the LG G3. Ironically, it was HTC's comeback phone, the M8. The phone had been launched across the world, and seemed to be done well in the high-end category.
The dust on the HTC's latest flagship phone, the M8, had barely settled when we started hearing about the next-gen sensational handset, the HTC One M9. So, what is HTC's next flagship phone going to be? Of course new devices are needed by the company to stay afloat in the competition --- and HTC is no different.
HTC may not bring its next-gen flagship phone or the successor to the M8 this very year. And there is a valid reason behind it. HTC is not financially strong as its competitors in the business, say, Samsung or LG. Therefore, the HTC One M9 will probably get launched sometime in the first-half of 2015.
We are already aware that the HTC One M9 is not happening any time soon. In case, if you can spare a minute from your busy schedules, the first M9 concept conceived by Rishi Ramesh could be the right representation of a future HTC-made device.
The HTC One M9 concept phone has been detailed through the following sliders below. Dive in, and take a closer look that the concept. Happy Weekend!
HTC One M9 -- Display
The HTC One M9 concept appears to be more detailed in nature. As speculated many a time in the past, the M9 might come with a 5.2-inch Quad HD display having a resolution of 2560 x 1440-pixels resolution. In this concept too, the designer imagined the M9 with a 5.2-inch QHD screen. The current HTC One (M8) offers a 5-inch Super LCD 3 display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080p pixels (441ppi).
HTC One M9 -- RAM, Internal Memory, GPU
HTC One M9 has been imagined with a powerful Adreno 400 GPU for advanced mobile gameplay. Also, the device would come with 3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of on-board storage, which can be further expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card slot. However, there's no mention about the processor type under the hood. Just for the reminder, the HTC One (M8) features a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU, Adreno 330 578 MHz and 2 GB of RAM.
HTC One M9 -- Camera
The successor to the HTC One (M8) might come with a 13 MP duo camera with 4K video recording capability, and a 7 MP front facing camera for taking video calls.
HTC One M9 -- Battery and Software
The latest HTC One (M8) offers a 2,600mAh battery, while the M9 might feature a 3,000mAh non-removable battery.
On the software front, don't be surprised to see the M9 running on Android 5.0 Milkshake.
