Yesterday brought us our first look at the HTC One (M9), HTC’s upcoming flagship. The images were blurry and poorly lit, but the phone appeared to be nearly identical to the HTC One (M8). Today’s set of pictures confirms that, both through clearer pictures as well as a comparison with the One (M8). As you can see from the back shot above, the camera hole has been made larger and is now square. You can also make out the re-positioned power button, which is now located underneath the volume rocker on the right side.
The shot below is one that compares the One (M9) to the One (M8), at least on the front. As you can see, the differences are minimal at best. The front-facing camera and sensors appear slightly larger, and the bezels look to have shrunk a bit. It is hard to tell, though, if anything has changed on the front. For now, we’ll take the word of Nowhereelse and assume that there are very minor changes with the bezels and sensors.
Finally, you can see the image below, which is a render of the One (M9) inside of a thick, protective case. Aside from the rear camera and moved power button, it looks exactly like the One (M8). It has been rumored that the volume rocker is now split into two separate buttons, which the case could indicate by having a dip in the middle of the volume rocker.
From what we can tell, the One (M9) is turning out to be remarkably similar to the One (M8), at least on the outside. Rumors have suggested that the One (M9) could feature well-improved specs including a 20-megapixel camera and Snapdragon 810 processor. We’re looking forward to the launch of the One (M9), which is set for March 1 at MWC.
