I believe this is the HTC One M8i
The true HTC One M9 is the one with speaker that looks like Nexus 9.
HTC might have leaked this purposely so people will mislead into thinking this is the One M9.
I mean, come on, they won't say "Let Them Stare" if its gonna be the same One M8 design with ugly two tone color phone
I dont think these are real videos. i believe the maker of these vids just put a case on his m7 or m8, and installed a custom rom to make it look like it has changed. still if this is true, i will switch to iphone, as i hate samsung and htc didn't do a good job. :(

Nope, I read them too. I agree with everyone about the black bar.

Lol, I didn't think about that, you are right. Phones like this are way more fragile..
It's M8 with 20mp camera.
It's almost the exact phone in looks. I was hoping that it would be the beauty that upleaks shown us last week. The one with grill speakers and rounder corners. If that's M9 then I will seriously think about getting it and Z4 will became my 1st choice.
Considering that I want a phone that can survive with me as I'm a freerunner, it will be a tough choice.
AnonD-275729, 25 Feb 2015I doubt it. I see no reason why I should upgrade from my (recently) purchased S5 to a forthc... moreI agree on the s5.However I've realised Samsung punishes its users once you buy a phone.the major reason for new phones now is new operating system.Ive realized Nokia and Apple updates all compatible phones to the latest OS.I wish to see a day Samsung realizes we are spending $500 annually to buy their phones and maybe it's time all compatible phones get an update..

Great phone from HTC. People who criticize HTC for battery life and the HTC logo on the front must understand that the black band is there for a reason, and it's not always easy to design a unibody phone with larger battery, as Samsung has learned it the hard way as they're putting a smaller battery in Galaxy S6 than the last year's S5.
If this is the real videos, then MWC is going to be pretty Awkward for HTC press conference, well at least there is a smartband and Plus edition.
so do you wanna change the LOGO with rainbow logo etc. wkwkwkw
the design are so beautiful i think, your just cant imagine how pooor the other phone vs this phone
funny comment read ever wkwkwkwk LOL
Why change something that isn't broken. The only thing that needed changing was the camera
i agree, if HTC want to keep that black bar they should make it useful, like in m7 where there was sensor buttons
if this is the final design of M9 I'll never buy this phone.the same designe the same bazels. and the same HTC logo.
Mobilemaster, 25 Feb 2015So it looks the same.Hey look, all those HTC and Sony fanboys mocking Samsung for not changing the design of their flagships, you're favorites have the exact same design for 3 generations now. At least Samsung had some design improvements/changes over previous generations.
Anyway the only company who had serious design improvements over time is LG, but feature-wise, the Note series remain king...
AnonD-115822, 25 Feb 2015Ohh no no no no no noh , this is a big mistake for HTCWhy?
Ugh... it looks like a phablet. I'm not really a fan of wide phones. I'm still on the fence betweem getting the M9 or Xperia Z4
So it looks the same.
I AM SPEECHLESS. I have no doubt the device will be fast and will take good pictures due to improved internals and camera, but why the same M8 face logo bar and all?????????
The QUESTION NOW IS...is there another HTC device with the ALL GLASS FACE with redesigned BoomSound speakers like some of the renders depicted or under consideration. That is the one most ppl were expecting...hope it comes in some form as the One M9 plus or Ace or whatever. Let's wait and see what HTC has in their goodie-bag b4 we either sing their praises or watch and see the tirade that is unleashed by some HTC fans who will be disappointed and expected something with a fresh face to go with the new updated specs. Personally it will be a HUGE LET DOWN if this is all we get in terms of phones (mainly due to the same face as the M8).
tom, 25 Feb 2015So apparently upleaks received a cease and desist from HTC :)Which isn't nice from HTC. Punishing "enthusiasts" and prospective customers like that.
