In the case of HTC’s next flagship we were recently told to pencil late March in our diaries, but this latest leak says the HTC Hima launch will go down NEXT WEEK in Las Vegas.

And so ends the week that had Christmas inside of it. Hope you all had a good one, with suitably outrageous amounts of food and booze.

HTC Hima vs. One M8: HTC’s next flagship revealed

Twitter-based leak machine @upleaks has been jawing about the HTC Hima (don’t call it the One M9) for the past week or so, declaring it HTC’s next flagship and predicting that it’ll arrive in Marchafter Mobile World Congress (MWC).

Another week, another seven days closer to death. Or Christmas! That’s a slightly more positive way of looking at things.

The big story in mobile this week was BT entering exclusive negotiations to acquire EE (not O2, as we originally thought), while the rumoured OnePlus One mini got you all chatting.
