HTC One M9 wrappers go for grabs on Amazon, show a big camera lens opening

HTC One M9 wrappers go for grabs on Amazon, show a big camera lens opening
Rumors about the HTC One M9 "Hima" are reaching crescendo mode, with the handset claimed to sport a vastly improved camera on the back, as hinted by the huge camera opening in the recent leaks. Well, a few One M9 cases have appeared for preorder on Amazon, by the usual culprit Spigen, and they reconfirm the 20 MP camera lens shape and size.

According to Bloomberg, the phone will be powered by Qualcomm's newest Snapdragon 810 chipset. The One M9 will also eventually double down on HTC's considerable audio prowess, introducing Dolby Laboratories Inc.’s Dolby 5.1 audio technology. Allegedly, these goodies will all be managed by a brand spanking new Sense 7 UI with "improved location-based services," whatever that means. The MWC expo is a week away only, so not much left to wait until we see what HTC has in store for us this year. In the meantime, you can marvel at HTC One M9's cases here.

Is it just me who see that the camera is protruding?? I hope we won't have another slim phone ruined by a stupid camera hump on the back

Last time I checked, Snark wasn't a good trait in human beings.

It's not protuding. The silver thing you see, is the back of the phone. The image of the case used just pasted over the phone one and it looks like they didn't align it properly

Definitely protruding in these renders. Additionally, all of the leaked images of the "prototypes" seem to have a slightly protruding camera module, although in those photos, it has a black rim vs. the silver rim in these renders. I'm starting to get a terrible feeling about this. I hate protruding cameras too. What's worse is that I think the S6 will also have the same problem. What's making these companies think this is desireable?

Judging by the front of this phone, it appears to pay a bit of homage to the phones of HTC's glory days, like the Evo 4G line.

The front looks absolutely hideous. This is what happens when haters comment about the bezel

Why would anyone put a case on a phone. Especially the beautiful HTC. I've never had a slippery issue with my m8. hope the Dolby digital sound happens! camera better be on point too. Just because they changed it doesn't mean it's good. So sick of the rumor mill, can't wait until the real deal
