HTC could change its phone naming scheme, next flagship might not be called One (M9)

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.

Hopefully they slim down the bezels and improve the camera...

You guys and your bezels, it needs the top and bottom bezels for those speakers and I would much rather keep those speakers then to feed some slim bezel fetish. Slim bezels do not help the phone functionally or in any other way. Bad ass speakers do. The camera really isn't that bad it's about on par with an iPhone 4s, it is much better than the Droid Razrs camera it replaced, luckily HTC has learned their lesson camera wise and will never pull that crap again.

I have zero problems with upper and lower bezels, but side bezels makes the phone feel old for some reason, everytime i grab my old z1 it feels Old, my new note 4 feels simply amazing compared, even the nexus 5 feels better thanks to the slimmer sides..

On par with iPhone 4S's camera?(This is 2014 almost 2015 not 2011) Better than the Droid Razr's camera it replaced???( since when HTC made RAZRs???) HTC HAS LEARNED its lesson on cameras?(that's yet to be seen) Mind you battery life is the worst of the major manufacturers and oh yeah those huge and ugly bezels too big of a phone for such a small screen! What a bunch of non Sense (no pun intended) in here!

I have so many complaints that it's sad how they can give me so many. Which makes it all the more disappointing because they really nailed the software and the screen.

Good thing. M8 was such a horrible name for the most beautiful smartphone.

I thought it was a good start on a new, maximum irony way of naming their phones. With the crap camera and "duo" gimmick, I always thought the phone should have been named: Check M8 Suicide. :)

Not a good strategy. They will just keep on confusing their customers. Samsung,sony,lg and apple have a unified namimg scheme
