Official HTC One M9 renders, price, and (almost) full specs allegedly leaked

Official HTC One M9 renders, price, and (almost) full specs allegedly leaked
According to German website MobileGeeks (a reliable source, from what we've noticed), what we're seeing below are official HTC One M9 renders. What's more, the website says it knows the upcoming handset's price, and claims to have an exhaustive list of features.

The renders show the "gunmetal grey" and "gold on silver" variants of the One M9, and are in line with many of the previously leaked images that allegedly showed HTC's new flagship smartphone.

There are no surprises when it comes to the specs of the One M9. Reportedly, the new HTC handset offers a 5-inch 1080p display, and is powered by Qualcomm's octa-core, 2.0 GHz Snapdragon 810 processor. The M9 has a 20 MP rear camera with dual LED flash, and what's said to be a 4 MP UltraPixel camera on the front. Furthermore, we have 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, and microSD card support (up to 128 GB). Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense 7 UI will be on board. BoomSound speakers, NFC, Bluetooth 4.1, and LTE connectivity (up to 300 Mbps) are also included. The new One should be 9.61mm thin, while weighing 157.5 grams. What about its battery? Well, this should be a 2900 mAh one.

MobileGeeks has it that HTC will sell the One M9 starting April in Germany, for €749, so we should expect the device to cost around $750 in the US (off contract).

All in all, it seems that, lately, HTC just can't keep its secrets. As you may know, images and videos of last year's One (M8) were making the rounds on the internet well ahead of the handset's official announcement. Anyway, take a look at the renders below, and let us know if you like what you're seeing.

P.S.: HTC will officially showcase the One M9 on March 1 at MWC 2015, when a One M9 Plus (with a 5.2-inch Quad HD screen) is also expected to be announced.

Update: these renders seem to have originated from the website of German retailer CyberPort. But MobileGeeks says they show the real One M9 anyway. We'll just have to wait until March 1 to find out how accurate the images are.

Lol for those people who clash Samsung for "same" design with S6 leak... Here we got an example, the change here is that camera is not round anymore ! Wow. Still a great design thought. :)

This is so thick, and yet just 2900 mAh. This is 9.6mm, compared to 6.9mm in S6. Yet this has just mere 300mAh more battery. And no OIS :(

No ios is an actual perk, a plus.

rd_nest had said OIS, as in Optical Image Stabilization. I believe you simply misunderstood them.

It's a rounded design. It has much less space for battery life than flat design phones. It's actually good news that they're able to put 300mAh more battery life than M8 which practically has the same thickness. And it will probably have better battery life than S6.

Are sure about the better battery life? AMOLED vs LCD 14nm vs 20 nm Efficient vs not so efficient 2k vs FHD

No, I can't be certain that's why i said probably. Even with only 2600mAh HTC was able to get good battery life. With 2900 mAh it will have even better battery life. I'll be glad if the put 300 mAh more battery. And can you stop with this efficient 14nm processor thing, when they talk about it's 30% better efficiency they talk about the best case scenario. In the real world not all task will be able to achieve max 30% efficiency. And surely QHD resolution (let's say very efficient) will suck a lot of battery life than FHD (probably new generation LCD tech) display even though QHD will be pentile stripe.

So now 14nm is gimmick? You guys are amazing! I will then tell you 20nm is also gimmick. We should also go back to 90nm days.. right?

Did I say it was gimmick? All I said that the 30% efficiency they talk about it was the maximum efficiency the node can achieve for a certain task. 30% efficiency will not be achievable in the real world for all the time. 14nm is still superior than 20nm but that doesn't gurantee the better battery life if the battery capacity is too small. Read before you comment.

So you have tested the 14nm 3D FinFET SOCs and are here to educate the mere mortals here? Since you happen to know so much, let me ask you this - 1. which "certain task" can it achieve this 30% efficiency? 2. is that "certain task" not part of real world? 3. so you are saying samsung is using 14nm just for LOLs? Last, why is Qualcomm planning to use Samsung's 14nm design for their upcoming SOCs? Since it doesn't have any benefits, you should go and stop them.

That depends of the type of battery. If it is a new generation of polymers or if it is a top invention the small capacity of battery will last longer. But in real life they are multiple factors that can screw your battery life. One is heat from your 20nm 810 soc.

Well on the first of March we will see what both OEMs says and later we will see the reviews.

Check G Flex 2 reviews, and how it throttles with 810. Pathetic batterylife.

Hi, that 30% over there own very good battery drain of there 5433 and not the battery hog of the 810 or the s5 801 with 28nm, I.e. They going to save on power big time

Sorry to say mate but samsung amoled as the same battery life for there QHD and fhd screens and will use less than htc lcd fhd screen, I.e. Your screen we take more power also as the 7420 as a way better gpu than the 810 there will be no problmes that side of things

The millions who bought the previous fugly phones with protruding cameras and the millions who are gonna buy this. We don't see htc,Sony are lg selling their phones do we?We see samsung and apple topping chart and sales.

They wanted to call it the HTC OneS but they couldn't because they already released that. I mean, come on. The design is 99% the same. It is nice to see upgrades for the front camera, rear camera, RAM, Storage, Processor. But people will think this is the M8 or even the M7 if they don't look at the camera.

Agreed. Concepts were much better.

As did every other reputable android news website. Phone arena, however, posts every piece of garbage they can get their hands on. I swore them off for a month and came back to see if it was as bad as I remembered. It is. Goodbye forever

Yes, but the M9 with it's improved camera, superb UI, and premium all around look and feel will run circles around any of the Samsung devices, Mega, Alpha, Beta, Mini, Edge, Note, Pro, S, Tab, Circle, etc. etc. etc.! #1

Not in sales though,that's a ABSOLUTE fact. Go fanboy elsewhere.

considering samsung financial statements, I wouldn't say that. either way it's funny how a HTC story has been completely turned into a samsung worship story by the fanboys , maybe samsung pays I really would like to know. guys go profess your love for samsung on samsung threads ,leave HTC threads alone.

I'm both an apple and samsung fan but right now samsung is hot apple is not. Samsung is also attacked by other fanboys on our threads and it's funny when we rub salt in your wounds about the best designed phone ever.

76. seven7dust unregistered

I wasn't targeting you personally , but the general samsung fanboys , this site is filled with them , claiming that samsung is the only real smartphone manufacturer and everyone else is garbage. when in reality they aren't doing so well financially. either way you have it backwards , Apple is hot right now after their historic quarter and samsung is not doing so hot financially.

I was talking about hot in rumors and leaks. I think samsung's profits will go up after the launch of the s6.I don't see apple replicating much less surpass their great quarter unless they revamp the iphone again(more megapixel maybe),ipad(higher resolution) and if the Apple watch is a aye or nay.

Why you are talking about phones in financial terms of companies that produce them? This is a tech site not an stock one.
