We had a pretty good idea that this was the case, but just to be sure there was no doubt, HTC has just tweeted an image with the tagline “let them stare”. The tweet, posted by the company’s UK presence confirms that the new device is going to be revealed on March 1st.

The device is going to be announced at an event in Barcelona at around 4pm local time (10am Eastern/7am Pacific). And – best of all – we are going to be there.
We’re expecting a device with similar design influences to the previous two generations of all-metal HTC One smartphones. The big difference this year – if speculation is to be believe – is that we could see a 20MP rear camera instead of the unusual 4MP Ultra-Pixel or dual-lens make-up of the past two years.
If you haven’t already, be sure to take part in our poll. Are you more excited to see the Galaxy S6 arrive, or the HTC One M9? We’re fully expecting T-Mobile to carry both phones when they’ve launched in stores.
