Naturally, information about the HTC One (M9) has been leaking a lot lately, since the Taiwanese company's next flagship smartphone is due to be made official this Sunday. Now though, we may have the clearest look yet at the One (M9).
What you see below (click on the thumbnails for full size images) are a couple of pictures that seem to show two different promotional materials for the One (M9).
They come from a source that has leaked stuff in the past, so they could be legit. On the other hand, they may not, so don't take anything for granted just yet.
If these are the real deal and have been taken straight from HTC, then it looks like the company opted to mostly keep the front design of the One (M8), and not change it as some past rumors have told us. So the BoomSound speakers are as evident as they've always been, and not tucked away under a couple of Nexus 9-like small grilles.
The big black bar holding the HTC logo and nothing else is also here to stay, contradicting some earlier speculation which claimed it would be gone in the One (M9).
While the front of the phone is incredibly similar to its predecessor, the back features the same bigger camera and dual-LED flash assembly we've seen countless times so far - and no Duo Camera, of course. So at least in this respect all the rumors were true, as it turns out. That is, if what we're looking at here really is the One (M9).
This leak tells us nothing about specs, but the handset should sport a 5-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 20.7MP rear camera, a 4MP (possibly UltraPixel) front camera, 3GB of RAM, and a 2,900 mAh battery. Running the show will be Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 SoC with a CPU coming with four Cortex-A57 cores clocked at up to 2GHz, and four Cortex-A53 ones that only go up to 1.5GHz. The One (M9) will run Android 5.0 Lollipop.
