HTC’s 2015 flagship device is supposedly launching soon, but in the meantime more and more details regarding the HTC One M9 (or the HTC Hima), keep leaking online. Well-known developer LlabTooFeR shared some new information on Twitter concerning the phone’s alleged Wi-Fi performance and main camera, which should make fans of the HTC One series even more eager to see the handset hit stores.

The phone supposedly packs an even better wireless chip, a BCM4356 module that supports the 802.11ac standard, which means the One M9 could offer even faster Wi-Fi performance, on par with what the Nexus 6 has to offer.

“HTC Hima will use BCM4356 wireless module. It supports 2×2 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.1. Same wireless module is used on Nexus 6 device,” the developer said in a first tweet.

LlabTooFeR also said the handset will have a 20-megapixel main camera from Toshiba, posting a link to the company’s official camera module description.

“On HTC Hima we might see 20MP Toshiba T4KA7 as the main camera module,” the developer said.

The HTC One M9 is expected to be unveiled a day before MWC 2015 kicks off, in a special event that precedes Samsung’s Galaxy S6 announcement by just two hours.
