HTC One M9 Hima surfaces in the Geekbench database
As previously reported, HTC is expected to unveil a new flagship smartphone on March 1st at a special event that the manufacturer has scheduled just before MWC 2015 kicks off in Barcelona. As we get closer and closer to the date, rumors and leaks detailing the new HTC flagship are now surfacing at an unprecedented rate. The HTC One M8 successor has been often referred to as the HTC One M9 Hima, although some of the more spicy rumors say that the handset will actually be called the HTC Hima.
The HTC One M9 Hima was recently discovered in the GeekBench 3 database. Geekbench is a popular cross platform benchmark app that analyzes the performance of the processor and RAM memory. As many rumors claimed during the past month, the benchmark reveals that the HTC Hima will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GB of RAM. The HTC Hima prototype scored 1232 points in single core tests, and 3587 points in multi-core tests.
Interestingly, these scores are almost equal to that of the Exynos 5433, a chip that Samsung used as an alternative to the Snapdragon 805 on the Galaxy Note 4. Rumors claim that Samsung will not use the Snapdragon 810 on the Galaxy S6 due to an overheating issue, while a more recent rumors claims that OnePlus is having difficulties implementing the chip on the OnePlus 2. So far, we're hearing no word that HTC is facing similar issues.
