    Here's an interesting tidbit of intel for your thoughtful Thursday morning. Supposedly, HTC is working on a completely new flagship internally called the "Hima." It's possible that this is simply the M9 version of the HTC One, but it could be a different device entirely. The specs which were leaked along with the name are certainly different than the rumors we heard before.

    Here's the scoop:
    • 1080p 5-inch handset
    • Snapdragon 810 SoC, with four ARM Cortex-A57 cores clocked at 2.0GHz and four 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 cores in a big.LITTLE configuration - with Adreno 430 GPU
    • 3GB of RAM
    • Cat6 LTE capabilities
    • 20.7MP rear camera
    • Possibly a 13 megapixel or 4 ultrapixel front facing camera
    • 2840mAh battery
    This seems like a strange animal. On the one hand, the processor, cameras and radio capabilities are top-notch. On the other hand, that's a "lower-end" display and a relatively small battery. What do you guys think? Will this be the new HTC One M9, or some new HTC product. Alternatively, this "intel" could simply be bogus altogether.

    The battery doesn't bother me much as I have equipped myself with a lot of ways to charge my devices no matter where I'm at. 2K res on the screen would be vary nice but still not a deal breaker since all the other specs are vary nice!

    The 810 is supposed to focus a lot on battery efficiency. It's a workhorse.

    The only thing that stands out to me is the 13mp front shooter. The 4up sounds more plausible. Hopefully the rear shooter isn't an ultra pixel.

    I think Google Os, is the main reason why we don't have good battery life nothing that Manufacture or Snapdragon chips can do about it Unless, Google focus on battery only on the Next update instead of adding features from manufactures like HTC, LG and others.

    This phone is what I have been waiting for snapdragon 810 with boom sound and a 1080p screen. This thing is gonna be fast. Quad HD is really stupid even for a phone with an 810. It just defeats the purpose of a faster gpu. Why do companies waist graphics processing power and just waist battery life.

    google has been focusing on battery life. The hardware manufacturers are as well. Better processors and screens are currently leading the way in battery preservation.

    I'm with you though. Android has plenty of features for Google to lay off of more bells and whistles and finally streamline Android.

    To do that though they would have to put their foot down and kill OEM skins which contribute to battery drain.

    Yeah, but it seem Google rushes the OS without optimizing the battery life. Last time i felt Google had good battery without an issue was on Android 2.3 OS and under. Android 4.0 os started the bad battery on most device with that OS and Android 4.1 os through 4.3 os. Google need to layoff Google Now and let the users download it through Google play same with their apps as of now you can find it through play store. It will save the time and energy for users not to root . Instead of trying to buy Cyanogenmod team this year, like they tried.

    We will see what VoLTE brings with 5.0.
    There are quite a few devices that are being upgraded to 5.0. The comparison tests from 4.4 on those devices to 5.0 should be plenty and of enough different variety to see if Google was serious when they said battery life will be much better.
