As expected the HTC One (M8) successor rumored as HTC Hima won’t make it to CES 2015 in Vegas early next year. While HTC has already sent invitations for a special press event on January 5 in Las Vegas and HTC Hima has even leaked via AnTuTu, it seems the flagship won’t be stealing the spotlight just yet.
A newly released teaser on Weibo says “Always Desire more”, which clearly means new Desire smartphone or smartphones will be announced at CES. This isn’t such a surprise though as both HTC One and HTC One (M8) weren’t introduced on CES, but prior and after the MWC expos in February-March.
HTC may want to announce the new One flagship at a stand-alone event once again thus not sharing the news with any major competition.
So, a new Desire or Desire phones are coming. One of them is probably the recently leaked HTC A-12 mid-ranger powered by the Snapdragon 410 chipset and offering a 4.7″ 720p display. The rest of its rumored specs include 1GB of RAM, an 8MP cam and a 2,100 mAh battery. Android KitKat and Sense UI should be in charge of operations.
HTC A12 will allegedly launch on AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless in the United States. We will keep an eye out for more details on the handset going forward.
