Reflection on another phone reveals the back of the HTC One (M9)?
posted by Alan F. / Jan 24, 2015, 10:56 PM
The model numbers of the phones used were 0PJA10/0PJA13. This dovetails with a tweet from @upleaks last month (since removed) that said that the HTC One (M9) would be part of the 0PJA series. The 3,024 x 5,376 resolution of the pictures suggest that a 20MP snapper was used, when you take into considering that they were cropped to fit a 16:9 aspect ratio. The HTC One (M9) is rumored to be carrying a 20.7MP snapper on its back. More precisely, the sensor is rumored to be a Sony Exmor RS IMX220.
The big news revolves around a picture taken by an HTC employee of a Sony Xperia Z2 that happened to be lying around while the test pictures were being taken. If you look at the reflection seen on the screen of the Xperia Z2, you see the image of the back of the phone that took the photo. That phone is supposedly the HTC One (M9). And guess what folks, the rear camera and the flash lines up perfectly with cases made for the HTC One (M9) by an Asian firm. We showed you a number of pictures of that case a few days ago.
This looks like it could be the real thing. If so, there are some aspects to the design that resembles the HTC One (M8), and some things that obviously are different (especially the lack of the Duo camera). Does this whet your appetite to see the next HTC flagship phone? We expect the device to be unwrapped in Barcelona on March 1st during MWC.
- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 20 MP / 4 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, Octa-core, 2000 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2840 mAh(21.7h 3G talk time)
Wow, I can't believe how HTC have made m8 worse looking than M7 and now M9 looks even worse. HTC, the minuscule sales you get are mainly due to the looks of your devices. So at least change it a little and make it better looking.

M8 worse looking than M7? Hell no, M8 is sexier.

How do we know that the reflection isn't also a decoy?

What's the thing on the top corner? Could it be for the duo-camera feature? I hope it is because duo-camera is what I really like about the M8.

Just making sure you're looking at the same thing I'm looking at. https://lh3.googleusercontent.

Well it could be anything: a blaster, a flash, a camera, sensors, a sticker, a mafin, your grandma :) The phone case renders that are mentioned above suggest it's nothing. There's only a microphone there but i guess is in the dark plastic line. We also don't know if this image is reliable

Yeah, HTC. Build up unnecessary hype for your phone so everyone can be even more dissapointed when they launch than they already are. -_-

I think part of them intentionally leaking the device is to get the response of the consumers. Like when the specs leaked that it will have full hd at 5" everyone liked them sticking with such. But yes, I am no longer excited fo march as we have already seen what the device is as early as now. I know that is already the real deal and not a prototype

HTC One M7 is one of clones of iPhone. And M9 is very similar to M7. So that means...?

Wow. M7 is a clone of the iPhone? How's that? In fact, the iPhone 6's (rather tacky looking) antenna lines appeared well after the M7 came out. Those lines are basically the only similarity between the two phones, so in that case, the iPhone 6 is actually a clone of the M7! :O

HTC might be trolling again with this leak too. Androids that look like iPhone never do well on world market, I dont see the resemblance other then a similarity of a line. Though I guess it must suck for those that think that way, when competitors make better looking versions of the product in their own hands
