We haven’t even had our morning coffee yet and Mobile World Congress-related leaks are already making their way to the interwebs. The latest shows us yet another look at the controversial HTC One M9, titled such because there’s been a lot of noise and debate about its supposed design.
Some lucky gent who’s in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress got his hands on the supposed device early, and decided to put it side-by-side up against the HTC One M7 from 2013 and last year’s HTC One M8. They look quite similar, and there are no signs of the reported overhauled design that @evleaks told us to expect.
While some early leaked renders have shown a mono-colored metal unibody design, this guy has the same dual-toned finish that we saw in our leaked shots back in January (and the same one featured in the promotional poster HTC will use to advertise the thing at retailers).
There’s been mounting evidence that HTC will go with this “refresh” of a design and very little to support @evleaks’ original claim, so we’ll have to wait until they take the wraps off later today to see if this is the real deal or evidence that HTC’s finally gotten better at hiding their wares. Stay tuned as we’ll bring you all the details live from the event.
