After the recent rumors and leaks about a new smartphone codenamed “Hima” from HTC, finally what we see is the AnTuTu database providing some information about the specs of the smartphone, and the next flagship for HTC is going to skip the Snapdragon 805 processor, jumping from 801 to include the Snapdragon 810 chipset, if the AnTuTu information has to be believed.
HTC isn’t making the screen bigger at all, as you still get to see the same 5-inch 1080p resolution display and what you see as the major upgrade is the Snapdragon 810 processor included along with 3GB RAM and Adreno 430 GPU. The Snapdragon 810 is a 64-bit octa-core processor.
HTC is ditching even its much famous UltraPixel camera, and this upgrade looks even better as the specs list show a 20.7 megapixel rear camera, and the 13-megapixel front facing camera hat you see on the HTC Desire Eye. The launch of HTC Hima is not anytime soon, and it is expected to go official only after MWC 2015, but HTC is packing in some specs that can challenge the top flagships in the coming year.
The interesting part will be that HTC is trying to stay in the 5-inch segment when it comes to flagship devices, and that is understandable for many who have always been against large screen phablets. The AnTuTu page also claims that the Hima will run Android 5.0.1 with the Sense 6 UI, which will be the new Sense version.
Will be interesting to see where HTC is headed to, with its plans for 2015.
