German designer Jonas Daehnert, who goes by the Twitter handle @PhoneDesigner, on Wednesday shared a couple of renders of the HTC One M9 that were based on some of the many recent leaks. Those leaks are believed to be accurate, and they suggest that this year’s HTC One might be the best looking phone ever made.
HTC might not have the biggest sales numbers in the smartphone market, but there’s no denying that the company makes some beautiful devices. For years, HTC’s smartphones have featured designs and build quality that was a cut above most rival handsets. That trend continued right through 2014, when HTC unveiled the One M8 and showed us the most gorgeous Android phone we had ever seen.
HTC wearable-related interests have been detailed in various reports in the past year, but the rumors failed to materialize, as the Taiwanese company postponed the launch of its first such device. However, HTC might be closer than ever to launching a first smartwatch or smartband device, that’ll compete directly against the Apple Watch, and all the other similar devices available in stores, or about to be released. But HTC isn’t going to use Android Wear for this first device, @upleaks revealed, as the company is apparently interested in making it compatible both with Android and iOS handsets. More →
HTC’s 2015 flagship device is supposedly launching soon, but in the meantime more and more details regarding the HTC One M9 (or the HTC Hima), keep leaking online. Well-known developer LlabTooFeR shared some new information on Twitter concerning the phone’s alleged Wi-Fi performance and main camera, which should make fans of the HTC One series even more eager to see the handset hit stores.

It might not have been the best-selling Android phone of 2014, but there’s little room to argue that the HTC One M8 isn’t the best-looking Android phone of 2014. And now, on the dawn of the HTC One M9’s debut, last year’s flagship smartphone is finally starting to receive its Android 5.0 Lollipop update in the United States. More →
The HTC One M9 is going to be HTC’s 2015 flagship Android smartphone, and likely one of the best smartphones to hit stores this year, at least considering what HTC has done with previous HTC One models. Unsurprisingly, following the large numbers of leaks that have either offered specs or images of the HTC One M9 (also referred to as HTC Hima), Nowhereelse has published a new set of pictures that show the metal case of the handset, painted in gold.

For the past few years, we’ve been both wowed by the quality of HTC’s phones and stunned by some of the questionable decisions it’s made with its marketing. If a new music video posted on HTC’s YouTube account last week is any indication, the company’s marketing strategy will be just as baffling in 2015 as it was over the past two years. More →
HTC is set to unveil its next-generation HTC One M9 flagship smartphone during a big press conference on March 1st, which will take place just ahead of the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain. Expectations are high for the device, which HTC hopes will help speed up the recovery the struggling smartphone maker began late last year.
We have seen plenty of leaks and rumors over the past few weeks, and they have painted quite an impressive picture so far. Now, however, new benchmark test results have been revealed and we can compare them to results from another huge flagship phone set to debut at Mobile World Congress in March: Samsung’s Galaxy S6.

We’re just over one month away from being formally introduced to two of the most hotly anticipated smartphones of the year. One is Samsung’s next-generation flagship phone, the Galaxy S6, which BGR exclusively blew the lid off of on Wednesday. We detailed all of the new Galaxy S phone’s key specs, including its 5.1-inch quad HD display and its new 64-bit octa-core processor.
It looks like HTC is going to run into some serious trouble again this year. 2014’s gorgeous flagship HTC One M8 was overshadowed by Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and its monstrous marketing budget. Now, it looks like things might be even worse for HTC in 2015 as the company continues its efforts to stage a comeback in the face of daunting odds.
HTC’s new flagship phone for 2015 is still shaping up to be a beauty though, and a new leaked photo may show us exactly how it compares to last year’s model. More →
The HTC One M9 is easily one of the most hotly anticipated smartphones of 2015 among Android enthusiasts. The mass market didn’t exactly flock to the current-generation HTC One M8, but that’s thanks largely to the fact that Samsung’s marketing and advertising budget is more than double HTC’s annual revenue. Those who found their way to the One M8 in 2014 sang universal praise of the phone though, and we’re all eagerly awaiting the sequel.
Now, that sequel may have been pictured for the first time. More →
HTC’s flagship smartphone for 2014 was one of the most impressive smartphones of the year last year, and it looks like we’re now less than two months away from seeing the debut of the company’s 2015 flagship Android handset. We reported last week that HTC had sent out invitations to a big press conference in Barcelona on March 1st ahead of the annual Mobile World Congress trade show, and we said that the company’s new HTC One M9 would likely be the star of the show.
The HTC One M8 was easily the most beautiful Android smartphone of the year in 2014. It might not have been the best-selling handset since HTC doesn’t quite have a marketing budget that compares to its massive rivals Samsung and Apple, but the M8 is still one of our favorite phones of all time. Now, it looks like we may finally know when the phone’s sequel — presumably dubbed the HTC One M9 — will be announced. More →
