HTC has started sending invitations for an unveil event on Mar 1 that will be held just before the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015. In the recent past, a lot of rumours have surfaced regarding the successor model of the 2014 flagship, the HTC One M8. Speculations indicate that the Taiwanese tech giant will announce the HTC One M9 on Mar 1.

According to PhoneArena, the Mar 1 event invitation from HTC does not reveal anything directly about the new device as the tagline present on the invitation reads "utopia in progress". The invitation does not even reveal the exact location of the launch event.

Android Geeks states that the MWC 2015 will start on Mar 2 and end on Mar 5 in Barcelona. However, HTC is organising a launch event that will be held a day prior to the beginning of MWC 2015. The Taiwanese tech giant wants to launch its new smartphone which is being referred to as HTC One M9 flagship through an exclusive event. During the MWC 2015 event, other smartphone brands are expected to roll out new products. Hence, in a bid to grab as much limelight as possible, HTC is holding an unveil event just before the beginning of MWC 2015.

HTC One M9 is one of the most awaited flagships of this year. PhoneArena states that even though the HTC One M8 successor was rumoured to feature Quad HD, it will actually arrive with a 5-inch full HD display. It will be driven by Snapdragon 810 chipset that contains a 64-bit octa-core processor along with Adreno 430 graphics. The chipset will be complemented by 3 GB of RAM.

A MediaTek chipset edition of HTC One M9 is also speculated to be in the making that will be aimed towards Chinese markets. The HTC One M9 will arrive with Android 5.0 Lollipop overlaid with HTC proprietary software, the Sense 7.0 UI. It will be featuring a 20.7 MP main camera on its rear panel and the front will be loaded with a powerful 13 MP camera for snapping high resolution selfies. Lastly, it will be packed with a massive battery of 2,840 mAh. Although HTC fans are waiting for HTC One M9's arrival, the Taiwanese tech giant has not spoken anything on it and its features.
