Going against the flow of the market, HTC will keep the 5" screen size for its next flagship instead of going bigger (resolution stays at 1080p as well). The chipset will follow a more familiar path and move to a Snapdragon 810 – an ARM-designed 64-bit octa-core processor paired with Qualcomm's Adreno 430. 3GB of RAM will also be attached.
The camera department will be a massive upgrade, however, with a 20.7MP camera catapulting HTC's flagship from the bottom of the range to the top. The selfie camera will match the 13MP camera of the HTC Desire Eye.
The HTC Hima will launch with Android 5.0.1 Lollipop and Sense UI 7.0, but it may come after the MWC. Instead it's set to debut at its own event. It's not clear if this delay is deliberate (to avoid sharing the MWC stage with other flagships) or not.
