The upcoming HTC Hima smartphone has been leaked yet again. This time the device has leaked courtesy of an Antutu benchmark screenshot that has been shared by the same guy that brought us the earlier leaks on Hima – upleaks. The leaked benchmark confirms most of the details that upleaks had shared about the device earlier this month.
The Antutu screenshot reveals that the next HTC flagship smartphone will arrive with the same 5-inch display size as the One M8 and also the same resolution of 1920 x 1080 and not Quad HD as you might expect. This is definitely something that does seem strange considering how almost all the recently announced flagship devices boast of a Quad-HD display and to launch a 2015 flagship smartphone without a Quad HD display seems a bit of a risk, at least to us. Other specs that the leaked benchmark confirms are a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, 3GB RAM, 13MP front facing camera, 20.7 rear camera and the Android 5.0.1 operating system. The 20.7MP rear camera is great news as we’ve been hoping since long that HTC would stop using its 4MP UltraPixel camera on flagship devices. The UltraPixel works decently when it comes to low-light shots but the low resolution can be quite a pain when shooting in bright daylight as you have virtually no room to crop later on and the details suffer as well.
Although upleaks mentioned earlier that the device is likely to be announced in March, HTC has actually sent out invites to its CES event on January 5th and has also included a teaser image of what may be the Hima flagship smartphone. We’re not quite sure if it really is the Hima or if HTC plans to launch some other device. Anyway, since the event is scheduled to take place in a week’s time, we don’t need to wait very long to find out if it indeed is the Hima that can be vaguely seen in the press invite.
