HTC’s rumoured phablet One (M9) Plus may not come with a 5.5-inch screen, according to a new report.
The Taiwanese device maker, which is expected to launch two new variants of its upcoming flagship One (M9) (codenamed Hima) namely One (M9) and One (M9) Plus, may ship the latter with a 5.2-inch screen, according to Twitter user Upleaks.
As per the tipster, HTC One M9 Plus or Hima Ultra will sport a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1440x2560pixels. The phone will come in two variants – one powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 oct-core processor and the other featuring a MediaTek chip.
According to Upleaks, the One (M9) Plus will feature a touch based finger print sensor located on front. It’s worth mentioning that a leaked image of the two flagships posted by Twitter user @evleaks (who has a great track record when it comes to smartphone leaks) featured a big phone that sports a hardware button. So perhaps the One (M9) Plus comes with a home button that doubles up as a fingerprint sensor, just like Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and Note 4 phones.
Other rumoured specifications of the phone include 3GB DDR4 RAM, 32GB storage, support for VoLTE and LTE Category 6 networks, a 20.7MP+2.1MP rear camera and a 4MP or 13MP front camera, BoomSound front speakers, Bluetooth 4.1 and a 2840mAh battery. The phone will run Android 5.0.2 with Sense 7.0 UI layer on top.
HTC is expected to unveil the two phones on March 1 on the sidelines of the Mobile World Congress.
