Over the past few weeks, we’ve see an increase in rumor activity surrounding HTC’s plans for its next Android flagship, the presumed One M9. While a lot of this speculation’s been visual, driving the release of a couple fan renders of potential designs, there has been a little talk about hardware, mentioning specs like a quad HD display, Snapdragon 810, and 3GB of RAM. This week, some new rumors attempt to confirm a number of those details, while going out in new directions for others.

According to this source, we’re still in quad HD territory, but that resolution increase could also mean a size increase, with the display growing to 5.5 inches. 3GB of RAM remains on the table, but that SoC might just be a Snapdragon 805. Storage options could hit lofty 64GB and 128GB capacities, and a big 3500mAh battery may tower above the One M8’s.

HTC’s experiments with UltraPixels and multiple rear cameras look like they might be drawing to a close, with the M9 getting a straightforward 16MP camera with optical stabilization, instead. And with Beats no longer around for (non-Apple) promo tie-ins, there’s a rumor that HTC could be considering a new audio partner – possibly Bose. Finally, HTC may move beyond metal for the M9’s construction, including some aluminum silicon carbide composite materials.

The rumor also mentions a separate M9 Prime model, but it’s not clear from this report just what additional changes HTC might have in store for that hardware.
