New HTC One (M9) concept render flaunts a streamlined chassis

New HTC One (M9) concept render flaunts a streamlined chassis
When the HTC One (M8) launched earlier this year, it had all of the specs that you would expect from an early 2014 top-shelf handset. That included the 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920, the Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 128GB microSD slot to go along with 32GB of native storage. But like sands through the hourglass, time continued to march forward, and the specs that were once cutting edge, are gradually becoming upper mid-range now.

Enter the HTC One (M9), or whatever the company might decide to call its next flagship phone, as there are rumors it might change the naming scheme this time. How will it look like? Well, take a look at the One (M9) concept below, and tell us what you think about how realistic it seems. In terms of specs it's anyone's guess, most likely a larger QHD display could be in store, a Snapdragon 805/808/810 chipset, and perhaps a higher-resolution Duo Camera, too. In any case, in terms of design HTC has a winning combo with the One (M8), so the One (M9) probably wouldn't stray much farther away from that.

not bad, but I would still like it if the back was round because that was the thing that made it differentiate from other android phones. Love the front except the writing 'HTC', it is so ugly and big.

No Snapdragon 808. It's more of an 'upper mid-range' chipset. Dual A57s for main CPU, with quad A53s for lighter tasks. Not bad by any means, but not flagship worthy. For example, if the Galaxy S6 came with the 810, the Galaxy S6 'Neo' would probably come with the 808.

I don't expect any flagships running the 808. I'm not sure why anyone would choose it over the 810. The Adreno 418 GPU isn't as fast as the 420 in the Snapdragon 805, and GPU is the major factor in smoothness.

The m9 would probably retain it's 5"1080display, this time with 3gb ram,13mp camera,snapdragon 810 and the on screen button's home icon will be replaced by the htc icon. I guessed the specs from upleaks and an htc employee saying that it's not about the specs but about the experience based from someone who commented to him that the note4 is the best

I hate the screen resolution race we're in, but if LG, Samsung, and Sony all go QHD next year, I expect HTC to follow. They were among the first to the 1080 mark in 2012.

Get rid of HTC sense and use pure stock android and you got yourself a winner htc

Normally I don't get excited over concept renders, but this one looks good enough to be the real thing. I dig the speaker design. Kind of an "If they mated: One M8 and Droid Turbo."
