HTC's next flagship smartphone is coming March 1 in Barcelona

HTC has sent out invites for a major launch on March 1 in Barcelona, just as Mobile World Congress gets underway. Naturally, this is where we're expecting to see the company's next big Android smartphone — the phone that may go by the name HTC One M9.

After a tempestuous 2014, HTC will be looking to kick off its 2015 product cycle with the successor to one of our favorite devices of the past year, the HTC One M8. Rumors suggest it'll run Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 810 chip, rock a 5-inch 1080p display, and perhaps ditch the "Ultrapixel" camera of old in favor of a traditional high-megapixel sensor.

The invite's tag line, "utopia in progress," doesn't give much away, but you can bet we'll be live from Barcelona in six weeks to bring you full coverage of one of the most important Android launches of the year.
