HTC One M9 (the desired things-part one):

Written by Sean Holmes

A very little bit is known about the HTC One M9. The fact is that it is possible that some of the features from the MIA HTC One M8 Prime might make it across. That phone was supposed to have a QHD display, a Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, a waterproof body and more megapixels in the camera, all of which would make sense for the HTC One M9, but there is nothing mentioned in it. Here’s a list of a few things that the users are expecting in the HTC One M9:


1. Larger battery life: Everyone who used HTC One M8 was highly impressed by the battery life of the model. But the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Sony Xperia Z2 beat it, while it looks like the Sony Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact might well widen the gap even further. So it would be better for the HTC One M9 to have more juice. It is not compulsory for it to have two days of battery life should be unrealistic, after all the HTC One M8 and a number of other phones can already comfortably make it into a second day, they just need a bit of a boost to make it to the end of the day.

2. A better camera: The HTC One M8 is great in low light as its lens lets more light in than competing Smartphone cameras, but if you’re trying to take photos in bright conditions all the extra light it takes in actually seems to work against it, causing the image to over-expose. On top of that it’s only got a 4MP sensor, which is fine when you’re just viewing shots on your phone, but blow them up and there’ll be noticeable noise. So basically, more megapixels and a sensor are expected which is as adept in bright light as low light. It almost seems like HTC itself might be moving away from Ultra Pixels, given that the HTC One Mini 2 and the HTC One E8 both have 13MP snappers, so the users might see a big change to the camera in the HTC One M9.


3. A QHD display: The HTC One M8 has a gorgeous screen, but it’s very much an early 2014 screen, as the LG G3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are now bringing QHD (1440 x 2560) displays to the mainstream. All those extra pixels don’t make a huge difference but it is a noticeable one and if the HTC One M9 doesn’t have a QHD display then it risks being overlooked.

4. A Sapphire screen: The HTC One M9 is bound to be expensive, so many people are going to want to put it in a case to keep it protected, but it’s also bound to be a thing of beauty so it would be a shame to cover it up. The more durable it is the less necessary that becomes and a sapphire crystal screen would help a lot. If the HTC One M9 does the same like iPhones, it could also be the first mainstream Smartphone to do so, which would surely be a big selling point.
