HTC One M9 and M9 Plus design revealed @evleaks?
Evan Blass (evleaks) is up to his old tricks again, throwing a spanner in the works for everything we thought we knew and loved. The “anonymous” tipster has leaked two images of the up and coming “Hima” HTC One M9 flagship device, straying from what we’ve seen before and also from the current design aesthetic.
The tipster who seems to have come out of early retirement leaked an image which showed two different variants of the purported device, the images also confuse matters further because they differ from other leaked images we have seen supposedly showing a prototype of the device, this could easily be exlained by HTC changing their focus half way through the testing process, or all the leaks could be complete drivel, or both; or neither.

All we know is that from the accumulation of images we’ve seen thus far, it’s highly likely the M9 will bring a design unlike the One M7 and One M8 before it, losing the large speaker grills and also centralizing the camera housing.
Speculation on the other device in the image is that it could show a “Plus” model, much like Apple releasing a regular 4.7 inch iPhone 6 and a “phablet” sized iPhone 6 Plus. The only thing we know for definite is that HTC is making a product announcement at Mobile World Congress this coming March 1st, only then can we separate fact from fiction.
