HTC Hima tipped for CES 2015 launch alongside leaked render

HTC Hima tipped for CES 2015 launch alongside leaked renderThe Samsung Galaxy S6, Sony Xperia Z4 and HTC Hima are just about visible on the horizon, but we’re not entirely sure where or when each of them is launching. CES in January? MWC in March? At independent launch events?

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.

The tip comes via Steve Hemmerstoffer of NowhereElseFr, a generally quite reliable chap. Indeed, a pinned tweet boasts that most of his pre-launch iPhone 6 reports were spot on.

In a tweet earlier this morning, Steve says simply: “#HTC #M9 #Hima #CES2015”. And that’s the end of that! CES 2015 opens its doors on January 6, one week from tomorrow.

Rumoured HTC Hima specs include an LG G3-matching QHD display (2560 x 1440), 3GB of RAM, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 20.7MP rear camera, 13MP front camera, 2,840mAh battery, Lollipop Android 5.0 and HTC Sense 7.0.

As for that HTC Hima render, er, something doesn’t quite sit well with us, though the thing is covered in coloured paint, which kinda makes it hard to get a feel for the true shape. But where are those inevitable stereo front speakers, for example?

If - if - the HTC Hima really is launching next week, expect a tidal wave of rumour juice over the next few days.

That render is horrible... I really hope nobody got paid to commit that crime.

The render's awful, the specs are nice though.

If this DOES come, as rumoured, in windows variety, i'll be a day one buyer.... be nice to get back to HTC, and I wouldn't be surprised if this phone is the reason why there is no Lumia flagship imminent... MS giving HTC some breathing space for a new flagship?

I'd love to believe that, too.
But I think: why make the "W8" exclusive?
MS isn't much into sharing.

Lol. Android Jelly Bean 5.0 on HTC flagship 2015 device. So much wrong with this its laughable.

Yep, I accidentally wrote Jelly Bean instead of Lollipop, but glad I made you laugh, Jeeves. Clearly easily amused :p

PS. *it's* = it is laughable.

Night night.

shouldn't it be, "with this, its laughability"?
