Previous reports claimed that the Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor by Qualcomm is plagued with overheating issues. LG and HTC didn’t seem to complain about these rumoured overheating issues, suggesting that the chip maker has overcome these problems. Or have they?
Romanian-speaking Mobilissimo was at MWC 2015 and wanted to know how well the HTC One M9 did on AnTuTu, since its predecessor the HTC One (M8) did so well in the benchmark’s tests. Sadly, after making the smartphone go through the test, a message said, “The device temperature is too high. Please test again after cooling the device. Continue testing may cause the system to restart or shut down.”
Although this could have been an isolated incident, we’re hoping this doesn’t happen to the units that launch towards the end of the month.
To recap, the rest of the HTC One M9’s specs include a 5-inch 1080p screen, a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera made by Toshiba, a 4-megapixel Ultrapixel front-facing camera, front-facing BoomSound speakers developed by Dolby Audio, 32 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (as much as 128 GB), 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 2,840 mAh battery. It will run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) with HTC’s Sense 7.0 UI slapped on top.
