New 7mm-thin HTC One (M9) concept proposes a Quad HD sapphire display, 12 MP Duo camera
The HTC One (M8) is now six months old, which means it’s getting a bit old (because that’s how the fast-paced mobile industry works). But HTC is certainly developing a successor to the M8, which may, or may not be called One (M9).

Of course, HTC hasn’t confirmed anything about this, but we heard that an M9, and even an M9 Prime could be released in early 2015. Until - and if - that happens, allow us to introduce you to a new - as opposed to the old ones - HTC (M9) concept design that might not be too different from a real HTC-made device.

Designed by Fabrizio D'Onofrio, this new HTC (M9) concept proposes a 7mm-thin body made with aluminum and titanium. The imaginary handset is obviously a high-end one that brings improvements over HTC’s current flagship. Its display should be a 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) sapphire crystal one. Other features: BoomSound+ speakers, 5.1 MP front-facing camera, 12 MP Duo rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization, Qualcomm’s new 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3500 mAh battery. Storage space varies from 32 GB to 128 GB.

What do you think? Would this make a great HTC smartphone or not?

If HTC gets there camera together and we get more than 13mp or 13 ultrapixels then it would be the best phone ever. with HTC its all about the camera this is there dead point.

10+ MP is fine as I'm not overly cropping photos and it would introduce less noise into low light photos and I would rather them increase the sensor size (1/2.5 or less) and aperture of f1.8 or f2.0.

Though, I'd still carry around my Sony RX100 II because I've gotten so used to carrying around my cameras (GoPro, NEX 5/ RX100 II). Slowly ween myself off from doing that (save for the GoPro).

Ugh, that should be 1/2.5 or larger.

HTC need to get rid of all the bezels they need to learn from LG G3 and Sharp AQUOS Crystal they need to give us edge to edge/bezel-less screen.

My thing is why have 3GB of RAM if you are going to have a S810. Make it 4GB & this would be an awesome concept!

You know since S810 is 64bit...

Looks nice and all. But who the heck gives a crap about being even thinner. Come on already. The vast majority would want a device with a bigger battery, then having a thinner phone. I bet you, if you asked people which they would prefer, a new M9 that was 10mm and could last 33% longer then a 7mm M9. How many would really pick the 7mm over the 10mm? I think we would already know the answer for the vast majority of people in the world.

Battery life not an issue for me. Id rather thinner. But even better would be if htc made the next One smaller by reducing those massive bezels

Well, if they manage to fit in a 3000 - 3500 maH battery in that slim body then I'm okay with that. I would hope that the real product ends up being 8.5mm thick or close to it.

I always loved the Sony Xperia Z designs over all others (premium and very sexy), but damn.... This one could steal my heart.

Dam sexy and slick stylish it looks, to bad and sad HTC will never agree to this design, even though knowing it looks stunning.

Agree. the concept design is futuristic. If this is produced, I wouldn't mind HTC making it 8.2 mm thick to increase battery capacity. But no to QHD display, just a huge battery drainer.

Stop with this crappy thinness trend. I actually want 3,000+ mAh batteries WITH good optimization for even better longevity.

You clearly take certain statements too literally. I was just saying what's on quite a few people's minds

Your logic for being rebellious just for the sake of arguing doesn't make any sense. If we weren't allowed to opine or critique things that are wrong with threads, what's the point of an open forum for discussion and debate then
