HTC’s “HUGE” MWC 2015
Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 is getting closer and it is turning out to be one of the most anticipated one this time around. It is also the most anticipated mobile event of the year. HTC has always been one big player in the mobile industry and also in the MWC. This year they say they are going to launch something big; no wait that is not the right word, they are launching something HUGE. No that is not a typo, they spelled the letters with capitals, really.
We are just really expecting HTC to launch their brand new flagship that would replace their old One M8, the One M9. Of course the M9 is not actually a small device and is expected to be quite big with 5-inches worth of screen real estate and should go along with the new wave of flagships from the major manufacturers. It is said to be powered by the new Sense 7, running on Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 810 processor, has Dolby’s audio technology, an Ultrapixel front camera, and 20-Megapixel main camera. This is not HTC’s first time teasing the “HUGE” moniker on their MWC 2015 campaign.
But there are new rumours surfacing around this “HUGE” campaign though. There are even rumours about a second device that will go along with HTC One M9, a bigger brother; in a literal sense. There are names like ‘Plus’ and ‘Ultra’ surfacing here and there right before MWC and we are thinking that they are referring to the bigger larger version of the One M9 and hence the word HUGE is used. There is also a possibility that HTC might go with the name HTC One M9 HUGE though more unconventional than the usual Plus and Ultra. Size are thought to be 5.5-inches at first but there are more rumours that are downplaying that number and go as low as 5.1-inches, which makes it not much more “HUGE” than the One M9 anyway. There could be more to the “HUGE” moniker though and sadly we would not know until we see HTC’s MWC 2015 launch.
On another note though HTC would be launching a different product alongside the One M9. The brand has been heard or rumoured to be working on their own version of an Android Wear device of some sorts. They missed the launch of Android Wear last year but they are not one to be missing out on new trends. This year they are bringing their smartwatch in together with the One M9, or at least we are expecting them to. This looks to be also the brainchild of the partnership between HTC and Under Armour. There is not actually much known about this smartwatch device but there are reports suggesting that the HTC smartwatch would work with Under Armour’s proprietary software. We expect it to also work with Under Armour’s biometric chest strap. There is a distressing rumour though; it may not run on Android Wear.
