As the MWC 2015 is nearing, the rumors and speculations regarding the HTC phones that could possibly show up at the March 1 event are increasing in number. While there are already reports about the One (M9) that could be the flagship smartphone of the firm, it looks like HTC is also working on another device called the HTC One (M9) Plus and a mid-range Desire 626.
Leaked by @leaksfly, it looks like the One (M9) Plus will boast of a much larger display than the flagship model and come up with some design differences. The tipster claims that One (M9) Plus could boast of a 5.5-inch Quad HD display and house a Snapdragon 810 SoC teamed up with 3GB of RAM.
Notably, the M9 Plus is sans the duo-BoomSound stereo speakers at the front as in the leaked prototype of the M9 and it employs a home button with what appears to be a fingerprint scanner below the display. At the back, the M9 Plus boasts of a large camera lens likely to be a 20.7MP one as in the M9 and it seems to arrive with the Duo Camera setup as well.
In a related report, a new HTC smartphone called Desire 626 is suggested to be in the making and @upleaks has posted the alleged press images and specifications of the smartphone. Upleaks notes that the Desire 626 will come in two variants, Desire 626 and Desire 626Q.
As per the details leaked by the source, the Desire 626 could arrive with a 5-inch HD display, one variant with a 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6572 processor backed by 2GB of RAM and the other with a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor supplemented with 1GB of RAM. It is likely that the Desire 626 will boast of a 13MP main camera at its back and a 5MP selfie snapper up front. It is claimed to run on Android 4.4 KitKat that can be upgraded to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Other specifications include 16GB of internal storage support with microSD card slot, 2000 mAh battery, 4G LTE connectivity and more. The smartphone will be launched first in China, given the Chinese carrier logos on the back followed by other markets. There is no word on pricing details yet.
