There is little over a month left until the Mobile World Congress will take place, in Barcelona. And for the course of four days, mobile addicts will get the best of smartphones and gadgets related to communication and improvements of our daily life. At this year’s MWC we expect to see some of the most awaited smartphones like the HTC One M9, codename HTC Hima, Samsung Galaxy S6 and Sony Xperia Z4.
In previous news we talked about HTC Hima release date, right before MWC 2015, so we already know we’ll be able to see it at the convention. But what else is there to expect from HTC?
Well, first there is only one word: Desire. There are rumors spreading like fire that HTC Hima won’t be the only smartphone HTC will present us at the MWC 2015 and according to those rumors, it’s about HTC Desire 626, codename A32. Pictures of HTC Desire 626 leaked today, so of some of the specs.
The smartphone will likely come with a MediaTek octa-core processor, clocked at 1,7GHz, with 2GB of RAM and only 1GB for the CU model, with a storage memory of 16GB. The HTC Desire 626 will run on Android 4.4 KitKat and with HTC Sense. Unfortunately, it has a low-capacity battery of only 2000mAh for both versions of the phone. It’s also said that a Lollipop update will follow later on. And as much as I would like to tell you, the price is unknown, being to early to even speculate.
Secondly, but not last, HTC will reveal their first smartwatch at the MWC 2015, alongside the HTC Hima smartphone. The smartwatch will be revealed in collaboration with Under Armor, a sport brand. Sadly, we still don’t know if the HTC smartwatch will be featuring on Android OS or if HTC has opted for its own software. Either way, it will be interesting to see what HTC can offer in a smartwatch that is different from its rivals.
As for the long awaited HTC rock star, HTC Hima, leaked information said today that it would have a DuoCamera setup, just like the setup on the HTC One M8. According to the same source, HTC Hima’s special feature is the fingerprint scanner. It is also possible to have two versions of the HTC One M9, one with a smaller screen with a 20MP camera, and one with a refocusing dual camera with the fingerprint sensor.
However, what exactly HTC will uncover is not yet certain and it’s best to keep our excitement for the MWC 2015.
