HTC expected to change its phone naming scheme, next flagship might not be called M9
After the HTC One (M7) from 2013 and the One (M8) from earlier this year, we’re all expecting HTC to introduce a One (M9) in 2015. According to a previous rumor, HTC may actually announce both an M9 and an M9 Prime in the first quarter of next year. But will it, really?

According to @upleaks, which has been a pretty reliable source thus far, HTC’s next flagship smartphone won’t be called M9. In fact, it’s said that HTC will no longer use this M-something naming scheme. Unfortunately, there’s no word on exactly what HTC has in store for us, so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens next year.

HTC’s latest smartphone, the Desire EYE, seems to be already signaling a change: it shows a return to the days when Desire smartphones didn’t have numbers attached to them (like 820, 610, 310, etc). Of course, it’s hard to speculate on future HTC names based on just that.

Regardless of its name, the successor to the One (M8) will most likely keep the all-metal design and the BoomSound speakers - since both define HTC’s recent flagship handsets. If you have any name suggestions for HTC's next big thing, feel free to share them in the comments section.

P.S.: Pictured above is an HTC One (M9) concept design that we showed you last month.
