New leaked HTC Hima / One (M9) photos suggest new power button placement

More leaked HTC Hima / One (M9) photos suggest new power button placement
Ready for a new round of alleged HTC Hima / One (M9) photos? Good, because the unannounced handset may have appeared in a couple of images which suggest that its power button now resides on the right side, below the volume rocker, rather than at the top (as it's the case on the One M8 and One M7).

Posted by Phandroid, the images reportedly come from "a reliable source close to the Taiwanese company." If they do indeed show the real One (M9) / Hima, the handset doesn't look too different from the One (M8) - though, as previously reported, it seems to have thinner bezels.

On the back, the upcoming HTC flagship smartphone should feature a redesigned 20 MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization (and no UltraPixel technology). However, the new photos can't confirm this. What Phandroid can confirm, according to its source, is that the new One will have an octa-core processor (almost certainly Qualcomm's 64-bit Snapdragon 810) paired with 3 GB of RAM.

Earlier today, an alleged HTC One (M9) Plus showed up, though this one had a suspicious home button (à la Samsung Galaxy), so we're not really inclined to believe in its existence.

As always, we must not forget that some leaked images turn out to be genuine, while others simply don't. We'll have to wait until March 1 to see if the photos included in this article belong to the former, or the latter category.

Update: Two more images have been added, one showing the device's rear side.
