HTC is set to launch the follow-up to last year’s One M9 in just under two weeks, and various leaks suggest that Android fans won't be left wanting by the company's next flagship. Last time out, the main concerns were battery life and the rear camera, but according to a spec sheet posted online by GFX Bench, the new smartphone will stand up to current Android heavyweight the Samsung Galaxy S7 with a 12-megapixel main sensor, capable of capturing 4K video.
According to the leaks, the new model will also include a 5-megapixel selfie camera that supports 2,592 x 1,944 video, and a 5.1-inch, 2,560 x 1,440 display. There are still no solid battery reports, but mutterings of a 3,000mAh number are starting to make the rounds in China.
Also mentioned on the spec sheet are the Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a sprinkling of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. There should also be an accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor and NFC support on board, so you'll have no excuse to not keep in shape and pay for things quickly.
Leaked images show that the handset looks the part too, but with the S7 duo and iPhone SE already on the market (and the LG G5 likely to arrive imminently), has HTC already missed the boat? [GFXBench, DesignTrend, ITHome]
