This HTC Hima Ace (One M9) concept proposes an edge-to-edge screen and triple LED flash

This HTC Hima Ace (One M9) concept proposes an edge-to-edge screen and triple LED flash
We're still unsure what to call HTC's upcoming flagship smartphone, but both the HTC Hima and HTC One (M9) names have been making the rounds lately. In any case, it's said that HTC is preparing several versions of the new handset, including an Ultra and an Ace Plus.

Until HTC officially announces the Hima / One (M9) and its variants - this should happen in early March - fans can let their imagination run wild by checking out various concept designs. The latest concept shows what the HTC Hima Ace should look like in the vision of designer Hasan Kaymak. We're being treated with a sleek, metal-made handset that has an edge-to-edge display, and dual front-facing speakers. On the back, the imaginary smartphone has a single camera, and a triple-LED flash (though we don't see how that would be useful in real life). Overall, the Hima Ace concept doesn't look too unrealistic. We can totally see HTC making a handset that resembles it - though the real Hima / One (M9) might adopt a more conservative design.

Check out the Hima Ace concept below (video included) and let us know if you like what you're seeing.

No, not gonna happen, atleast no edge to edge screen could be seen IMO. The concept is awesome but I think it came late so even if HTC wants to apply this they would become late for MWC announcement. And is that HTC name on the back or something else???

I don't understand why companies don't hire people that have great concept art for their phones to actually be one of the designers

Concept rarely become reality... It's easy to draw out and amazing design, but to have all the parts to fit in and still pass all the durability test aren't as easy as we think. Edge to edge displace is just too risky for the glass itself.

Yeah... I would rather have Xenon + 1 led... instead of 3

I think Xenon is enough. May be 3 LEDs are cheaper than Xenon.

Well Xenon is not enough for every situation... LED can be use as flashlight and as a light source for Video recording... and also LED can be use on low battery... I would get Xenon + LED or else I would stick to just LED, Xenon by itself is not that useful for a smartphone.

Why only 5? Are you a communist?! I want the whole back to be made of LED flashes!

Why only have LED flashes? Put a taser there as well

Triple LED flash looks a little silly/awkward- otherwise it's a nice looking concept.
