There’s no shortage of chat about the imminent Samsung Galaxy S6, but the HTC One M9/Hima is proving a major talking point, too.
Building on the news that the HTC One M9/Hima won’t look too similar to the One M8, we’re told the Taiwanese manufacturer’s next flagship will be “slicker” and “more refined” than its predecessor.
HTC Source’s anonymous informant is back again, this time dealing specifics on the HTC One M9/Hima’s front design.
For starters, thousands will inevitably rejoice upon hearing that the black bar housing the HTC logo on the One M7 and One M8 is gone, baby, gone on the One M9. Instead, the HTC logo will live atop the lower speaker.
That ultimately means there’s more room for the HTC One M9/Hima’s front stereo BoomSound speakers, a popular feature of the One series. They’ll span 50% of the One M9/Hima’s edge-to-edge glass, top and bottom, with a 45-degree cut recalling HTC’s Google Nexus 9 tablet.
On the whole, the HTC One M9/Hima is described as “slicker” and “more refined” than the One M8. Sounds good to us!
The HTC One M9/Hima launch is widely tipped for Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 in early March, or possibly in the weeks immediately thereafter.
A super-specced HTC One M9 Plus has been rumoured, too, though the jury's still out on its authenticity.
