The unannounced HTC WF5w seems to be the thinnest HTC smartphone yet

Meet the HTC WF5w, an unannounced handset that showed up today in China, where it's been approved by the country's Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center. Weighing 152 grams and measuring 158.7 x 79.7 x 7.49 mm, the WF5w is a hair thinner than the One E9+.
The new smartphone runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, sports a 5.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and seems to have dual front-facing speakers. Other features include an octa-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 13 MP cameras on the front and back, 16 GB of storage space, and microSD card support (up to 128 GB).
The presence of TD-LTE connectivity suggests that the HTC WF5w is made for China Mobile. However, the handset might have an international version, too, and we assume that it's going to be included in the Desire series (WF5w is definitely not its commercial name). Take a look at the new HTC smartphone below, and let us know if you like what you're seeing.

HTC engineers are pretty bad eh? Can't even make a thin phone without it being huge in the other two measurements.

Ummm... So is nobody going to mention the new speaker design? It's not a big deal, but it does signal that HTC may start to experiment more in their designs. We can always hope, right?

I don't really care about the bottom and top bezels since it really is of no consequence to me. I think they should have used black all around except for the logo. It draws too much attention and does nothing for the design. This is subjective of course since I prefer understated design in my phones.

It will be bezelless and from my opinion next flagship gone be THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PHONE!! Just like now SAMSUNG S6 EDGE is the most beautifull phone!! But I still bought M9 because that is phone for me... Very GOOD JOB HTC!!
