The recently announced HTC One M9 is reportedly facing unprecedented problem with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset seen overheating in a benchmark test.
Several high-end devices like the iPhone 6 Plus, HTC One M9, HTC One (M8), LG G3, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 were run on the GFXBench benchmark by a Dutch website called Tweakers (via GMS Arena) and it showed One M9, which is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, overheating.
However, HTC's online communications chief, Jeff Gordon sidelined the benchmark test results by claiming that the software of HTC One M9 is not ready yet.
"PSA: One more time, all together now: HTC One M9 software isn't final yet, no matter how many pre-release benchmarks you run," tweeted Jeff.
Meanwhile, the HTC One M9, which was announced at the MWC 2015, is expected to be released on 25 March, same day the HTC One M8 was launched.
Interestingly, American online retailer B&H has put the price tag of 32GB variant of the silver and gold HTC One M9 at $649 without any carrier contract and it was first spotted by Phone Arena. Best Buy had earlier listed the HTC One M9 on its website with a $649.99 price tag before it was pulled down.
The HTC One M9 sports a 5-inch Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen display with 1080 x 1920 pixels (441 ppi pixel density) and screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor clocking at 1.5 GHz, and runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
