These gorgeous renders compare the HTC One M9's leaked designs - which one do you prefer?
What's up, HTC fans? The well-known smartphone render master Martin Hajek chimed in with another eye-balming collection of HTC One M9 renders, this time comparing the different designs we saw in leaked materials (such as case renders) and HTC's (allegedly) official leaked promo materials. These design variations could very well turn out to represent two versions of the upcoming flagship itself - the HTC One M9 and the HTC One M9 Plus / Max. 

But let's not jump to conclusions when the smartphone(s)' announcement date looms so near! Once again, these renders are gorgeous, and we have to say we prefer the "evolutionary design" concept. The other one simply looks too much like the Meizu MX 4, which is not a bad thing at all, but we'd rather see HTC continue the One M8's outstanding design in a subtle manner, rather than make its hero smartphones look more uniform. What's your preference?

Revolutionary design please

Nothing revolutionary about the so-called "revolutionary design". It looks great, but it's evolutionary at best. The so-called "evolutionary design" is the same as last year's.

Revolution design is successor, evolution design is failure.

Revolution design period. However, the camera and speaker in ths same place is impossible.

both renders are great, i would prefer the Revo one of course ... everybody likes a change .. especially if it is an upgrade. although the evo one is good looking too . S6 or M9 didn't make my mind yet .. would wait for the official release and check how they fare against one another.... can't wait to get rid of my HTC One X+ :D

How can I believe that someone would prefer the evo design especially when you are a professional tech editor? The thing is that if they have the evo announced only, they lose again; if they have the revo. design announced as well they win this year.

Revolutionary Design! With Revolutionary Design, there can be More Room for the Screen without Altering the Physical Size of the Phone at all. One thing that I would LOVE to see HTC be the First to do, is to Put a Flash on the Front for taking Selfies in Low Light Setting and to be able to select from Low, Medium, and High for the Front Flash settings for Low Light Picture taking.

I do not find evolutionary design ugly,it's nice...until you turn the phone on:)) Look from the bottom-speaker+htc logo+onscreen buttons-the real screen starts way up when using it,looks unnatural

Revolutionary is M9 Plus & Evolutionary is M9

why does the revolutionary have three buttons on the side and one on top? shouldn't they remove the power button on top ? or is it a camera button on the side and the power stays on top?

Definitely absolutely the Revolutionary Design. I really wish this could be the design for the HTC One M9!!!

Nice HTC M9 but the design the same with HTC M8. There old frame from M8 they recycled and use for M9. Just my opinion if this is true.
