HTC One M9 hands-on video leaks, shows it next to the M8
With the HTC One M9 expected to be officially released tomorrow, a video has been posted showing off HTC's new flagship model. As disappointing as it might be to the multitude who expected a sharp change in the design of the handset, in reality it looks just like those leaked promotional videos we showed you the other day. And that means it strongly follows the same design of the HTC One (M8).

There is some difference with the buttons on the side of the new model. The volume controls are now made up of two individual 'volume up' and 'volume down' buttons and the entire edge is gold-colored (HTC calls this dual-finish metal unibody design). The power button has been moved from the top of the phone to the side under the volume buttons.

On the back, the Duo camera is gone, as expected.HTC says that space limitations prevented it from offering the second sensor on the new model. The 4MP Ultrapixel camera employed on the back of the HTC One (M7) and HTC One (M8) is now pressed into duty as the front-facing camera on the HTC One M9. A 20MP rear snapper is now found on the back of the new flagship device.

Remember, HTC's Jeff Gordon has said that there are things about tomorrow's media event that we have no idea about. The manufacturer is expected to reveal the HTC One M9 Plus and a smartwatch tomorrow. So keep it right here for up-to-date coverage on what is happening at MWC, as PhoneArena will be live in Barcelona!

I guess we find out tomorrow for sure, but based on this video I'm not impressed. Those fake renders were perfect, too bad they were just computer renders as the design looked flawless.

And people have the guts to complain about Samsung and Apple??
Sony and HTC fans use the same excuse that the m8 and Z looks great and there is no need to change the design not even improve it, yet they are always the 1st to 6troll on Apple and Samsung articles about sticking to their language design.
The iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 are two of the best designed phones ever made, and yet you people nagged over and over how Apple didn't change the design with the 4s and 5s.

And since when did htc and sony fans bash samsung and apple for the same design. Your blind fanboyism has lead to make false accussations. Fellow apple and samsung fanboys bash one another for using the same design. Get your facts right before you start complaining about us. Same goes with the 8 people and counting liking his comment.

I don't like the same look myself but you're one too talk crap. There is a 90% plus chance that the next iPhone will look exactly the same right down to using the same case. So in my book iPhone lovers can't talk crap about looks.

M9 looks awesome. Great job HTC. You make M9 even better than M8. I commend you for your brilliant craftsmanship.

But people criticise Samsung for using a similar design to to the predecessor. This is worse than anything Samsung has done.

The difference is Samsungs design language was s**t starting from the s3 and it still continues to be s**t where as HTC design language has always been top notch. So yeah, the m9 might look slightly dated but it's still way better than anything Samsung has been able to come up with.

It's ugly. It's been ugly since the the M7. None comes close to the Note 4 in function or looks.

"Samsung design is s**t"
Why? if your answer is "plastic" then it is not the design but the material, just you know fyi.
