HTC One (M9) design is "sleeker" and "more refined" compared to the current flagship
According to a person who is familiar with the design for the HTC One (M9), this year's model is "sleeker" and "more refined" than the HTC One (M8). The black bar with the HTC logo that has been the bane of many owners and potential owners of the One (M8), will be replaced with the new model. The top and bottom panels that include the BoomSound grill will be slightly taller instead as they make up for the removal of the bar.

The HTC logo is moving to the bottom speaker panel on the HTC One (M9) and the panels will be covered by the edge-to-edge glass that will be employed on HTC's new flagship model. There will be two cut-outs in the glass for the top and bottom BoomSound grills.

HTC continues to listen to consumers when designing its flagship phones. The HTC One (M8) added a 128GB capacity microSD slot after customers shouted loudly about the absence of the feature on the HTC One (M7). The HTC One (M9) will also kill off the Ultrapixel camera while providing a firm upgrade to both the rear and front-facing cameras. And as we already pointed out, the black HTC logo bar will apparently be gone after many complained about it.

HTC's goal is to produce a flagship that has enough lasting power to be a top selling model for the entire year. The HTC One (M8) got off to a hot start, but was cooled down by the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the LG G3.

We should know for sure what the HTC One (M9) will look like on March 1st, during MWC in Barcelona.

Thanks for the tip!
