HTC M9 and M9 Prime to be launched in the first quarter of 2015?
While it looks like the rumored HTC M8 Prime will never see an official release, HTC is reportedly planning to launch a Prime version of its next-generation flagship smartphone, expected to be called M9.

According to @evleaks, both the HTC M9 and HTC M9 Prime should be introduced in the first quarter of 2015. Surprisingly, it’s said that the M9 Prime is supposed to be released before the regular M9.

Unfortunately, there are absolutely no details on what features the M9 and M9 Prime should bring. In any case, it makes sense for us to expect the Prime to be more advanced, and more expensive. Design-wise, we’re assuming that the upcoming HTC handsets won’t stray too much from their predecessor (the One M8). We recently saw a couple of HTC M9 concept designs, but it’s hard to believe that the real M9 will look anything like them.

The allegedly canceled One M8 Prime was rumored to feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) screen, Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, and LTE-A Cat. 6. We’re thinking that at least one of the new M9 models may have similar features. But we’ll see what happens.

Why? M8 was announced in Q1. Now people want 2 year flagship releases?!

Regret? Well then you better prep to regret even more when/if you move from your SD801 powered M8 to this RUMORED 805 M9 because if you don't play heavy mobile games much you're not gonna see any meaningful UX improvement...

... save for faster app drawer scrolling...

Absolutely horrific renders. It's obvious that people with no common sense or without a brain design these renders. HTC doesn't do edge to edge. Nor would those dual speakers allow for the bezel to be that thin. I know it's just a render but that doesn't mean it can be absolutely ridiculous.

I hope so. I am disappointed that the M8 Prime was suspended.

Smaller bezels would have been a nice improvement too...

Smaller bezels = No front facing stereo speakers.

Smaller bezels = No useless black bar with HTC logo...

You know nothing about the internals of this device. The black bar at the bottom comes nowhere close to the bottom speaker or even the speaker housing. Bezels can be reduced all around while keeping boomsound.

They could have removed the extra logo on the front. Regardless, it's a perfect design.

Agree to cheap dustbin plastic

Even Nokia uses better plastic

That's it? Common! Speculate more! How about a HTC one M8 note with a 4K display and snapdragon 1010 coming in 2015 q4? Or may be a One M8 13 inch tablet with a 6k screen and snapdragon infinity backed up by 8 GB of ram? Think much? I hate these "SPECULATORS". They live in a virtual world.

It's disappointing to see a flagship release in 2014 that brings just 2gb of ram.

Well, obviously next year we ARE seeing the next HTC flagship... but just a question - why did HTC start the previous model with the 7 in the codename" Why not M1? That way they'll reach M10 in 2016, and M16 in 2022 (get it, M16 like a rifle)

I hope M9 have 5" 1080p display with S805.

Most likely QHD display...

Why not S808 or S810?

Having been burned by the last @evleaks htc m8 prime rumor leak, which turned out to be false, I'm calling BS.

You are doing the right thing. I hate speculators too.

Hoping that the M9 will be 5.2-5.5 inches, 805/810 chip 3,000 battery, QHD screen, and of course the front facing speakers.

Bruh, enough with the "Prime" ish already. Why make a prime if the "Flagship" is supposed to be a flagship?

That seems to be largely forgotten lately.

You win the nets for the day IMO.

Just remove most of black parts around the screen and UltraPixel and will be fine.
