December is the month of the leaked images for the next wave of flagship smartphones and the latest one showed the front panel of the HTC One M9 and also a possible press render.
The French website nowhereelse.fr published images which are supposed to show the front panel of the next high-end smartphone from HTC. It has very thin bezel and no physical buttons at all. The sleek design resembles the latest trends for the smartphones – the screen starts to fill the almost whole front area of the device. Similar trends we saw in the TV sets in the last few years.
This rumor was reinforced by a second leak – now with a press render of the device, presumably prepared for the launch event. Again the source is nowhereelse.fr. It showed the HTC One M9 with similar (but white) panel to the previous photos. It also suggests that the possible release of the HTC One M9 is closer than previousle expected. It is very plausible HTC to make a launch event on Consumers Electronics Show in Las Vegas which starts next week.
According to the French site the HTC One M9 will have 5.2-inches display. Previous reports suggested the following tech specs – a QHD display (2560 x 1440 resolution), Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera, 13-megapixel front-facing camera, 2840 mAh battery. It is expected to come with Android 5.0 Lollipop and as a traditional HTC device to pack up with Sense 7 UI on top.
Also the previous rumors suggested that the new HTC One M9 may come with different name. The early ones are betting on the name Prime, but a little bit later one claims for Hima. But those could be an internal code names for the deice and not the official one.
This is not the first big photo leak from the French site. It also published a pictures of the supposedly Samsung Galaxy S6’s metal cases. But for now all the leaks are not confirmed from another source.
Plausibility for a real photos – 65%
