The long-rumoured HTC One (M9) aka HIMA has been spotted at a benchmarking site revealing the key specifications of the flagship smartphone.

Twitter spy, upleaks has released a screen-shot of the AnTuTu benchmark site showing an HTC device codenamed HTC6535LVW (HIMA), understood to be the One M9.

The phone is said sport a 5.0-inch full HD (1920x1080p) screen and run on the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop OS powered by the 64-bit class 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 Octa-core processor with Adreno 430 graphic engine and 3GB RAM.

HTC One M9 is also said to pack 20.7-megapixel main camera and a 13.0-megapixel snapper on the front, which is certain to cheer selfie aficionados.

Though some might argue that HTC One M9's leaked display resolution specification is bit under-par compared to rivals and the upcoming 2015 flagship phones, it has be noted that QHD (aka 2K: 2560x1440p) or 4K resolutions are just gimmicks to sway gullible consumers.

Many research studies have indicated that a human naked eye won't be able to differentiate screen resolution beyond HD (1280x720p) and if they really did use a QHD screen, it will be a huge burden on the battery.

That said, we still believe it is too early to assume these leaked specifications of HTC One M9 to be true as there are chances of some changes, as we are at-least two months away from the rumoured launch of the device. Companies usually give minimum one year or at least 11 months before they launch a successor of the flagship phone.

[Note: HTC One M8 was unveiled on 25 March, 2014 and got released on same day in USA and Canada. Global rollout began later in April]
