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?

Instant buy if it's the real design, never seen such a gorgeous phone, and it's HTC, premium build and audio !

I won't lie if I said it will be the best looking phone ever exist.

not bashing anyone of you, but that is the most hideous looking htc handset yet. Why do you like that it looks like a cyclops, an iphone clone when flipped outside down, uses glass instead of metal which makes it less premium and more prone to damage when the phone falls. I just don't understand why all of you like it. I'm the only htc fan on phonearena who likes to keeps the design the same

Give your htc one m7 and m8 to your friends. Tell me how many of them replied it looks like an iphone. As an m8 owner so many people have already mistaken my phone as an iphone. How much more with that m9 by evleaks. Just flip it and put it side by side with an iphone. Tell me how much they resemble one another

They will say that cause they have no tech. Knowledge, and I don't care about those, I care of myself and my satisfaction of the design. There is no obvious reason though.

Sorry dude.... HTC One M7 and m8 does not look like iPhone at all no matter how I look at it.This render however, does reminds me of iPhone. But to be fair iPhone 6 back design looks like an exact copycat version of HTC m7 and m8. If HTC One make babies with iPhone you'd get this render? Haha.

Iphone6 is the ugliest phone ever, so there is no reason to compare the gorgeous one to the ugly one.

Its not iPhone clone, rather iPhone 6 looks like HTC one m8 clone.

Not exactly. All the companies have been hyping 2015 as a new era for smartphones with new chips, cameras etc. You'd expect a new design too. I've been with HTC since the start of Android and have never had any other device. Each and every one of them have looked different. That's what makes HTC special. But this... :(

Getting it all mixed up. It's the iphone that looks like the HTC One , not the other way round. What makes em look alike is the strips at the back of the phone and HTC were first.

The iPhone 5S is my favorite phone design The revolutionary M9 will replace it if its true Otherwise my favorite will still be the iPhone 5S (and for tied second the Note 4, One M7 and Lumia 930)

It's a bit unrealistic though, if the camera is in the center, where does the speaker go?

59. g2a5b0e unregistered

It's not the first phone to have a front cam in the center. Take a closer look at the renders & you'll have your answer.

Both of them is a render for the M9, one of them will be the M9, few hours and we'll know.

i prefer evolutionary design back and revolutionary design front

4. GeekMovement unregistered

I wouldn't mind either one, but 2 things I prefer on the revolutionary design are the bigger screen space (due to the lack of the black bezel at the bottom w/ HTC logo) and the lack of a camera hump (unless I'm blind and they both have the humps).

Revolutionary design > Evolutionary design

7. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

We all know it will be the evolutionary design that will be shown on MWC. What's the point of comparing?

you know that htc was hiding the prototype of the m9 inside of an m8 body to stop the final design from leaking?
