Qualcomm says new Snapdragon 810 phone is coming, looks like HTC One M9


Will the HTC One M9 have an all-new look or a simple evolutionary update? That’s still unclear, but one thing that does seem certain is the processor that’ll be powering HTC’s next flagship.

Qualcomm today posted a tweet with the tagline “It’s almost time for a new #Snapdragon 810 powered smartphone. #MWC2015” Attached to the tweet is a Vine video with the silhouette of a smartphone with rounded corners, much like the HTC One (M8) and the leaked One M9 images. The video starts out showing 8:10, hinting at the Snapdragon 810, and then it flips over to 10:08, which is the time that HTC uses on all of the renders of its phones and tablets.

The HTC One (M7) and One (M8) both use Snapdragon processors, and so it won’t be a surprise if HTC’s next flagship Android smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s flagship mobile processor. And so while we may not know for sure what the One M9’s body will look like, at least it looks like the device will have a powerful processor at its core.

    OR is it just about every phone that has rounded corners?
