HTC One (M9) case listed on Amazon might have leaked the real design of the phone
Amazon has listed a case for HTC's upcoming flagship phone. By putting up the TUDIA Ultra Slim LITE TPU Bumper Protective Case for the HTC One (M9), we learn a few things about the phone. First, it seems that the name of the device will remain the HTC One, although this model will be, of course, the (M9).
Secondly, the listing also shows a cut out for the rear camera and flash that dovetail perfectly with a reflected image of the phone that we recently showed you. The image used for the front of the phone looks like a placeholder derived from the HTC One (M8), and doesn't jive with the renders that we recently showed you. Those images showed the front-facing camera located on the middle of the top panel of the phone, and is a large sensor similar to how the 13MP "super selfie" snapper looks on the HTC Desire EYE. The BoomSound speaker grills are expected to be two slits, one each at the top and bottom on the front of the handset.
On the other hand, the image of the front of the phone used by Amazon does resemble a photo out of Romania published on Friday that allegedly shows the HTC One (M9) Plus. Unlike the previous render of the device, this image looks more like the HTC One (M8), although it does have a fingerprint scanner/home button at the bottom just like the previous render did. We are not ruling out the idea that either the image from Romania, the prior render, or both, were photoshopped or are bogus thanks to some other means.
The case is priced at $7.99, a 73% discount from the original price of $29.99. The raised edges protect the phone when you put it screen-side down, and there is access to all buttons and controls. The case, which features a soft touch feel, is available in black only. Amazon is accepting pre-orders for the case right now. If you plan on buying the HTC One (M9), you might want to take advantage of this great price and reserve one right now. Oh yes. One last thing. The case is supposed to be released on February 9th. And while we all know that the phone is supposed to be unveiled at a previously announced HTC event held March 1st at MWC, perhaps we just might see an earlier release of HTC's next flagship.
