The previous year may have had a number of big smartphone releases, but not all lived up to the expectations. There were two Samsung flagships and two new iPhones, but we liked what we saw for the HTC One (M8).
However, what the HTC fans are now waiting for is an equally striking successor to the One (M8) that will build upon what was on offer from the previous handset. And accordingly, we are now being treated to the massively rumoured One (M9).
To begin with, the rumours and leaks surrounding the HTC One (M9) aka Hima have started making rounds once more around the internet, and now it's back with the handset's purported design surfacing once again. The image came into being via the now-retired tipster @evleaks, who posted a cheeky tweet saying "Old habits die hard..."
While the new images are leaks, the smartphone's more solid concepts have already been rendered around the web, with more new designs arriving almost every day. And if going by what these concepts have on offer, we could be set for one of the prettiest looking HTC phones of all time.
Here are the five concept images of the phone that you must check out. The concept HTC Hima has been branded HKI, which is the official Hasan Kaymak Innovations handset brand. The HTC One M9 concepts that have been rendered here have minimal bezels, while its edges almost go around the handset.
Stay tuned for more updates.
