During the past month we have been hearing a lot about HTC’s upcoming flagship codenamed Hima. A lot of information surrounding the new device has been circulating in the rumor mill, but now it seems that finally we have a full specs sheet leak for the next-gen smartphone.
The new HTC One Hima will indeed be powered by a Snapdragon 810 SoC. The octa-core chip will have the following setup – 2.0GHz quad-core Cortex-A57 + 1.5GHz quad-core Cortex-A53. The display on the Hima will be 5 inches, but sadly the leaked specs state that it will be of the FullHD instead of the QHD variety found in some current flagships.
As far as physical dimensions go the smartphone will measure 144.3 x 69.4 x 9.56 mm, but no word about its weight. Judging by existing information it is only logical to assume that the Hima will follow in the steps of the One (M8) and have a similar metal body. This, of course adds a little bit of extra weight to the smartphone, but makes a huge difference in terms of design and feel.
Furthermore, if the rumors are to be believed, the new HTC flagship will come in the same three colors as the M8 – gray, silver and gold, as well as a fourth, called “Gunmetal Gold” and those all sound like solid color choices for the slick aluminum body.
Going further down the list of specs we are happy to see that the HTC Hima will have 3GB of RAM as well as Cat.6 LTE connectivity. Two cameras will adorn the phone – a 20.7MP main camera and a front-facing shooter, which the leaked info ambiguously states as either 4MP or 13MP. This could be due to a lack of information or it could potentially hint that HTC is planning to release more than one variant of the model. Other than that the HTC Hima will unsurprisingly come with Android 5.0 out of the box and a reasonably big 2,840mAh battery.
The leak also lists a few official accessories that are expected to be available for the new flagship: Active Headset, DotView, DecoStand Case, Clear Case, Active Case, Premium Screen Protector. A lot more exciting, however is the cited launch date – March 2015. The HTC Hima seems tantalizingly close. All we can do now is wait for more official news on the upcoming smartphone, hopefully early next year.
