Case manufacturers have become a reliable source of intel on future smartphones, and Amazon is currently flooded with optional protection for the yet-to-be-announced HTC One (M9) flagship. Unlike the case with the Samsung Galaxy S6 where precise dimensions were stated, HTC's covers are less revealing.
One thing that appears certain at this point it the lack of a dual camera, as the back of all cases sports a single large cutout for the lens and flash arrangement. That was a common theme of all previous leaks, so we can can safely assume that HTC will go with a conventional camera this time around.
While the back has been pretty much settled, a few manufacturers seem to have missed the memo on the new speakers design. Some of the models have carried over the One (M8) grille placement in the renders instead of the thin slits towards the edges, that are believed to feature in the next generation.
It's unlikely they've mass produced the wrong case, though. More realistically, companies have chosen the safe side and stuck with an official image of the predecessor, instead of breaching confidentiality agreements and revealing something ahead of launch.
A hat-tip to our reader Maimuna Belgaumwala for the info!
I am sorry but if this device actually come with the logo bar again, i will most likely skip their flagship again. There are many other devices to choose from. But i am hopping they heard/read all the negative comments about the logo bar and huge bez...
My dear friend...i hope to god, HTC took note of all the complains about the logo bar and bezels. Most of the renders we've seen show how beautiful the M9 will look if HTC made the adjustments to address what irked some ppl with the M8.
That little dot on the upper-left side is a microphone, it is present in the same position on the M7 and the M8!
