More details leaked about the Upcoming HTC One (M9) flagship (codenamed Hima). This time around we're hearing that despite what some previously leaked pictures have shown us, the device won't be almost identical in terms of design to its predecessor, the HTC One M8.
In fact, in certain aspects it will be quite different. For the design of its front, and specifically the BoomSound speakers, the One (M9) will reportedly be inspired by the Nexus 9 tablet, also made by HTC and pictured below.
Hence, the M9 is rumored to come with an edge to edge glass panel on its front. The speaker panels will no longer be exposed like they were in the original One and the One M8. Rather, they will be enclosed within the aforementioned glass. This will get two 45 degree cutouts for the slit speaker grills, which will span around 50% of the handset's top and bottom edges.
And this will apparently make the One (M9)'s design closely resemble that of the Nexus 9. According to the source of the information, the new style will enable a "slicker" and "more refined" look on the new flagship smartphone when compared to its predecessors.
HTC releases its latest flagship, One M9, with BoomSound and 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound. BoomSound was first introduced on the HTC One M8 but the company said that the sound quality and experience has improved a lot with adding Dolby surround sound. So you're probably interested in checking out each and every aspect of the phone, see what's changed.
M9's BoomSound stereo speakers are the same as the One (M8), but is there any difference in the way they sound?
Well, here's a hands-on with both phones, hidden in an improvised sound-isolated room, and played the same song on them with volumes cranked to 100%. Watch the video below!
