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.
Now, if these new renders are at all representative of reality, it looks like the HTC One M9 could be the most beautiful smartphone ever made, period.
HTC will unveil its next-generation flagship smartphone during a press conference on March 1st in Barcelona, Spain. The event will take place just ahead of the annual Mobile World Congress trade show, which will be packed full of big mobile announcements from dozens of companies.
