One M9 bottom half render shows what the new HTC BoomSound speakers could look like

HTC has reportedly taken its relationship with sound to a whole new level on the One M9, it seems, as a rumor surfaced recently that it has partnered with the audio juggernaut Bose to work on the next generation of BoomSound speakers in the upcoming edition of its One flagship phone line. Not only that, but the new tag team is allegedly tasked with diminishing the size of HTC's current amplified stereo speakers set, so that the top and bottom bezels can be shrunk further, or other elements placed easier under the hood. 

The HTC One M9 bottom half render that you see above is based on the leaked prototypes so far, and shows us up close and personal what the slimmed-down BoomSound set would look like. We aren't certain about the sound quality from such diminutive speakers, but HTC has proven itself in the field numerous time already, so we are keeping our hopes high for the One M9, too.

I prefer the older design. This one looks more fragile and less premium. It is unlikely for htc to make this the final design

But the old design took up too much space I'm all for this one assuming it sounds better as well

I like it taller. That's why this will be a turn off for me if it turns out to be true

You mean htc haters?

I'm assuming he did. Either that or he severely misunderstood what the word fanboy means.

No I meant fanboys HTC fanboys were defending the M8's huge bezels like their lives depended on it They called me a hater and said it was physically impossible Obviously its possible its HTC have supposedly just done it Not surprising to me since the teardowns showed me it was not easy, but very possible PS I hate all fanboys, not just HTC fanboys

Love where they placed the speakers and how it looks. However, that metal doesnt' look premium too me. I hope they use a premium looking and feeling metal. Lets go HTC!

That is looking quite beautiful!

Beautiful phone. I am so glad that I am an Android user and have choices.

Looking good. If the camera is as good as the latest Lumias that might be it for me. But...we don't know what MS is cooking yet.
