HTC to eliminate parenthesis with HTC One M9, use "One Life" slogan for promos
The second piece of news has already been confirmed by a tweet from HTC. When promoting the phone, HTC will use the slogan "One Life." Hours after this report was published, HTC sent out a promo for the phone which included the hashtag #OneLife. The manufacturer is asking you to draw one of three shapes, no doubt parts of the HTC One M9. There is a rounded corner, a dual flash cutout and one of the lines from the back of the phone. The one who recreates the design to HTC's desire might find it used at the media event on March 1st.
HTC has told us that they have beefed up social media for the HTC One M9, most likely to prevent the Samsung Galaxy S6 from stealing its thunder. Last year, the HTC One (M8) was one of the most hyped phones ever, prior to its unveiling. This year, the manufacturer has been more tight-lipped about its new flagship, going as far as having decoys made to fool the media. Assuming the rumors are right and HTC has eliminated the Duo camera on back, the camera can't be used as an excuse not to buy the phone.
Still, it all comes down to marketing which is an area where HTC has been weak. Sure, you can blame that if you want to on the company's early days when it was turning out devices for others. But it has been quite a few years since the Nexus One and the T-Mobile G1 rolled off the assembly line. HTC has been pushing its own models for years and needs to do better than having a B-list actor say "Blah, Blah, Blah," and call it marketing. The company has upped its game with its flagship phones (think of the progression from the HTC One X to the HTC One (M7), HTC One (M8) and now the HTC One M9) and now it needs to do the same with its ads.
