HTC One M9 details and images appear on Cyberport listings

img_54e8d0a5def59

We’ve seen leaks about the HTC One M9 for weeks, if not months, and it feels like there’s not much left to find out about the rumoured device scheduled for an MWC 2015 launch in a week or so. German retailer Cyberport has posted details of the HTC One M9 including a number of renders which appear to confirm much of what we already know.

Cyberport’s listings show a pre-order price of €749 (which works out to just shy of $1090 in Australian currency). One hopes this is a pre-order price only, and retail pricing will be a bit more realistic, otherwise HTC may well be setting themselves up to release a great white (expensive) whale. Availability is suggested for early April, which all but confirms an MWC announcement.

Let’s take a look at what could be the most revealing renders of the device released thus far:

The images come from two listings; one for the M9 in gun-metal grey, and the other for a silver phone with gold accents. Both designs look familiar, both when compared to the leaks we’ve seen, and also to the heritage from the HTC One M8. Obviously, we know the camera module is a little different, with a square feature instead of the circular camera module on the M8 model.

As to the specifications, there’s few surprises here, but it’s nice to see them wrapped up nicely from a third party retailer which claims to have the details:

Display 5″ 1080p
Rear camera 20MP
Front-facing camera 4MP Ultrapixel
RAM 3GB
Storage 32GB expandable to 128GB with microSD
Processor 2GHz Octa-core
Battery 2900mAh
Dimensions 144.6mm x 69.7mm x 9.61mm
OS Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense 7

Whether Cyberport has the inside word, or whether they’re just filling in gaps, we don’t know. HTC could still pull a rabbit out of its hat on the 1st of March, but whatever the case, we’ll find out first hand and report back to you, as Daniel heads off to Barcelona for MWC 2015 in a day or two now.

A couple of prolific Twitter leaksters and a few big tech sites are sticking to the line that the renders and leaks we have seen were dummy models. I really hope they are right because its still a beautiful design, but it is getting old.

Sorry HTC One, I was a fan. But I got stuck with 2 years of purple-hazed photos. I’m moving onto the Sony Xperia next month.

Did you know that purple haze is a defect from the early batches of HTC Ones they released? You should be able to take it in and have it replaced for a new one free of charge. That’s what I did about a year ago, never had that purple haze ever again

Why all the negativity? I love the design and specs. They have kept the phone the same size or slightly smaller, but added a bigger battery. Also resisted the stupidity of adding QHD which will only drain the battery. They have smartly dumped the ultra pixel camera aswell. Regarding the bezel, its not so bad because its at the very top and bottom, where it does NOT effect the user experience. You dont want the buttons at the very bottom anyway because it makes it hard to reach the bottom and top of screen in one motion.

Aren’t the speaker grills meant to be slits? I’m hoping these are just renders designed for accessory manufacturers.

Please be fake, please be fake, please be fake.

Evleaks has come out and said this is not the final design.

UGGHH, camera sticking out again, FACK! I guess I’m not buying this phone now.

I really hope that’s not legitimate.
