After obtaining a leaked picture allegedly showing the front panel of one of 2015’s most anticipated Android handsets of the year a few weeks ago, Nowhereelse’s Steve Hemmerstoffer posted an image on Twitter that reportedly shows the press render of the same device, suggesting a launch may be closer than initially believed.
Referred to as the HTC Hima or the HTC One (M9) in reports detailing it, the handset shown in this new leak (image below) will reportedly be unveiled at CES 2015, the most important tech even of the year.
A clear photo of the handset has not been leaked, but the image in this leak seems to indicate that HTC is preparing a special event for Las Vegas.
The company has yet to announce its press events for CES, but Hemmerstoffer said on Twitter the image is supposed to be HTC’s media invitation for the major tech event. Even though the French publication has offered accurate leaks in the past, detailing various unreleased mobile devices, this particular one is yet to be confirmed.
Earlier rumors have said the handset will feature high-end specs on par with what other top Android devices will offer users next year. The HTC Hima is expected to pack a QHD display (2560 x 1440 resolution), Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera, 13-megapixel front-facing camera, 2840 mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense 7 UI on top.
The leaked press render follows below.
