We’ve seen renders, TV ads, and a promotional video that leak the HTC One M9. Now a hands-on video revealing the device has surfaced. The video shows the Taiwanese phone maker’s next flagship alongside its predecessors the HTC One (M7) and the HTC One (M8).
The videos reveal the differences between the HTC One M9 and its predecessors. First of all, the volume controls are now made up of two individual ‘volume up’ and ‘volume down’ buttons. Secondly, the entire edge is gold-colored, which is called a dual-finish metal unibody design. Lastly, the power button has been moved from the top of the phone to the side under the volume buttons.
Showing the back of the smartphones, it is re-confirmed that the HTC One M9 will no longer make use of a 4-megapixel UltraPixel dual camera and instead use a massive 20-megapixel camera (reportedly made by Toshiba).
Here’s the video:
Other rumoured specs include a 5-inch 1080p screen, a 4-megapixel Ultrapixel front-facing camera, 32 GB to 64 GB of internal storage, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor under the hood, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 2,840 mAh battery. It will run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) with HTC’s Sense 7.0 UI slapped on top.
HTC will be lifting the lid on its next flagship later today at MWC 2015 in Barcelona, Spain.
