As we approach MWC 2015, the leaks continue with HTC’s One (M9) stopping by for a quick photoshoot on its way somewhere else. These photos, published by French outlet NowhereElse, show a device which looks strikingly similar to the 2014 HTC One (M8), with a similar BoomSound speaker arrangement, slightly slimmer bezels than before, and a square camera module at the rear rather than round. Others have observed that the sides and base look a little squarer than the M8 as well.
It’s not immediately apparent whether this leaked device retains the Duo Camera feature from the M8, as that part of the rear casing is obscured in the rear photo, but who knows, it may still be there, but a closer look makes it seem unlikely.
The photos have already been removed from NowhereElse, supposedly at the source’s request, so whether that adds any legitimacy to the photos remains to be seen.
Rounding up those rumours, the HTC One (M9) is rumoured to come in with a 20.7MP rear camera, Ultrapixel front camera, full-HD screen, Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor, 3GB RAM and of course HTC’s updated Sense 7 interface.
HTC is widely expected to reveal this particular device at the MWC 2015 show in Barcelona in a few weeks now on the 1st of March. According to reports yesterday, the phone will be unveiled alongside a smartwatch or smart device built with HTC’s partner Under Armour.
