Conflicting HTC One M9 Rumors; Prime and Hima

Ever since the fad faded away on the HTC One M8 Prime concept there have been many rumors on a M9 Prime for 2015. We have been speculating much of what has been leaked as the HTC One M9 Prime looks to be the new premium flagship for the coming year. Now, we are hearing some conflicting HTC One M9 rumors that could either support the idea of the Prime, or could replace them all-together.

We are certain that a new premium HTC flagship will debut during the 1st quarter of 2015, but are unsure if it will be called the Prime or the Hima. New HTC Rumors on the Hima have surfaced in recent weeks as analysts are unsure if it will debut along the Prime or replace it.

The most logical scenario is that both there will actually be three different HTC flagships released during the 1st quarter of 2015. The follow-up to the best-selling M8 is destined to return as the HTC One M9, but also a premium version and a budget-friendly version will debut.

All three versions will share similar specs including a Snapdragon Qualcomm 810 processor, a Quad HD display, four launch day colors, and at least 20 megapixels in each of the primary cameras. The differentiating factors between a standard HTC One M9, HTC One M9 Prime, and HTC Hima will be the design build and overall size.
