HTC One M9 makes an appearance on video alongside M7 and M8


Tomorrow at MWC in Barcelona, HTC is going to be taking the wraps off its next One smartphone. The One M9 is widely expected to be a refinement of previous generations, with boosted specs and slightly different design. And it’s made one last appearance on video before it’s no longer a rumor.

Uploaded by YouTuber, Samia Lou, the video shows off what he claims is the HTC One M9, alongside the M7 and M8. And there are some small differences between them. The biggest improvements, from a physical standpoint, are the redesigned buttons on the right edge. Which – for the first time – includes the power/sleep key. And the edge looks gold in color, which adds that slight element of sophistication to the aesthetics.

Other rumored specs include a 1080p display and a Snapdragon 810 processor. The biggest change is on the back, where the dual camera system has been replaced by a single camera with (presumably) more pixels packed on to the sensor.

Of course, we’re expecting T-Mobile to carry HTC’s next device whatever it ends up being. Even if this isn’t the finished product, or some elaborate prank to fool us before the phone is announced, I’m still excited by the prospect of a new HTC One. It’s the one smartphone each year that shows what you can do with a single piece of aluminium if you design well enough.

    a square camera instead of a circle this time. band 12?

    The only thing I dislike is the huge logo at the bottom that positions the nav controls further up. The nav controls take so much space already and no wonder they advertise a bigger screen.

    If they MUST keep that black bar there, they could at least try and populate it with capacitive keys…if there’s enough room underneath anyway.

  • Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird

    The gold looks cheap and trashy.

    • monkeybutts

      I’m not a fan of 2 separate metallic colors on a phone.

  • Whiskers

    Hard to believe they’ll pump out the same style for the third year in a row with a few minor upgrades .
    I liked the render pic TMO had the other day better that had the finger scanner on it.

  • YABD

    They looks just the same design.

  • Joe Block

    sigh. I’ve looked forward to HTC’s next product ever since the M7. I guess someone there believes “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” motto for the design. They should trim the bezels, relocate the speakers (personally do not like a tall phone), scratch the HTC logo on the bottom, and use a different finish..just my 2 cent

  • HeatFan786

    Wanted a bit more on software side.

    • monkeybutts

      you’ll see more tomorrow at the official unveiling most likely.

      • HeatFan786

        Yeah, we will, but whenever people get their video recording equipment on, they ought to try to record footage of the device in action as long as it doesn’t violate a NDA.

  • dontsh00tmesanta

    Band 12 and volte is a given

    But I wish they’d remove the HTC bar makes the phone appear lopsided


    Looks fake to me,an M8 w/a case.Check the port alignments & it’s a perfect match.
    Front of phone/upper portion covered w/a decal or some other material.
    Betcha we’ll see something a bit different tomorrow.

    • Fhritp

      Yeah like a pig flying?

      • KOLIO

        Sure, why not.

  • kev2684

    any news of an HTC One Max refresh? i need Xperia Ultra/HTC One Max refresh this year. i doubt Google will make another large phone after the Nexus 6. if anything they’ll refresh Nexus 5 first.

  • superg05

    so hard to tell apart

  • Jeff Martinez

    I’m sure it feels quite premium in the hand, but like the S6 and S6 Edge, I’m focusing on what the software will be like, can’t wait for tomorrow.

  • Dean Smith

    he shows the phone but didn’t say a word about the SPECS
