HTC One (M9) pictured next to HTC One (M8); changes seen between the two models

Just the other day, we showed you a picture that allegedly revealed a prototype of the HTC One (M9). Looking very much like the current HTC flagship model, the back of the device reveals a larger camera sensor and the end of the Duo camera experiment. Steve Hemmerstoffer, the editor of French site NWE (the source of the earlier prototype photos), tweeted out a photograph of the prototype model standing right next to the HTC One (M8).

One major difference between the new model and the current one, is the reduction of the side and bottom bezels. It might be hard to see, but if you look closely, you can spot a thinner black border around the perimeter of the screen. Furthermore, the controversial "HTC logo" bottom bezel has also dropped in size. The front-facing sensor is also larger and the speaker grills seem smaller.

It looks like the HTC One (M9) will come equipped with a 5-inch (or slightly larger) screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. A 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 CPU will power the unit, which will come with 3GB of RAM inside. We could see a 20MP camera in back and possibly a 13MP "super selfie shooter" in front. Android 5.0.1 should be pre-installed with HTC's proprietary Sense 7 UI included.

As usual with something of this magnitude not wearing an "official" label, we suggest you take a trip to your spice cabinet so you can take this story with a grain of salt.
