The follow-up to the HTC One M8 looks a lot like its predecessor, according to the latest alleged leak. Surfacing shortly after the company revealed it would be holding an event at Mobile World Congress, photographs for what is believed to be called the HTC One M9 has surfaced, with the codenamed-Hima smartphone having relatively few external changes.
Photographs released by Nowhere Else, now pulled from view, shows the claimed One M9 sporting the usual BoomSound dual speaker configuration on the front, as well as a slightly larger camera lens and proximity sensor. The screen appears to have less of a bezel than before, though it is difficult to confirm with the phone turned off.
On the back, it seems as if HTC have opted for much larger camera module than expected, and though this could indicate a switch away to a higher-resolution rear camera than the previous 4-megapixel UltraPixel sensor used previously, its size could possibly hide more than just a single camera sensor. It is unclear if it has the M8's Duo Camera system, as the image has been cropped where the secondary sensor resides.
Other rumors suggest HTC will be using an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor with a 20-megapixel rear camera, with the front camera using the UltraPixel sensor this time, though some suggest it could be a 13-megapixel version. 3GB of RAM and a 1440x2560-resolution display are also touted.
