Samsung and HTC's upcoming flagships at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona seem to be in a race for leaks it seems. After we saw the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge leak once again today in a new video, HTC's flagship has one-upped its Korean counterpart in a brand new video leak that comes straight from MWC and compares the One M9 to its predecessors, the One M7 and the One M8.
HTC One M9 Leaks In Comparison Video Ahead Of MWC Barcelona - Device Similar To One M8 In Design
As you can see above, looking at its predecessors, the One M9 seems to have altered very little when it comes to overall design o the device. However, once we take a look at the sides of the device, the Taiwanese manufacturer seems to have paid attention to the details on its flagship smartphone. In what's called a dual-finish metal unibody. This gives the sides of the One M9 a golden finish when compared to the silver metal back of the device. Keep in mind that the device still uses a unibody; the sides and the back are different in terms of finish.
The power buttons and the volume controls on the One M9 are all present on the left side now, underneath the sim card holder. The bottom of the device stays similar to the One M8 and as expected, dual camera is also a thing of the past on the company's latest flagship. Camera resolution also appears to have been boosted up to 20 MP, a feature many HTC users have been clamoring for a long time and will help the device's standing amongst other flagships. The reason behind a single camera lens on the One M9 is said to be space limitations by the manufacturer; as stated in the video. The Ultra-Pixel front camera for the device stands at a resolution of 4 MP. That's all for now folks. Enjoy the video above and stay tuned for tomorrow. Cheers.
