Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona is getting closer by the day. This technology show will be held at the beginning of March and by the looks of it we’ll see tons of new gadgets being showcased there. HTC and Samsung will both unveil their new flagships there, both of these tech giants will hold an event at the show and showcase their new offerings on the same day, March 1st. HTC’s conference will begin at 4pm, and Samsung will follow soon after, 6:30pm (local time).
Speaking of HTC, we’ve seen a ton of leaks and rumors regarding the company’s upcoming HTC One (M9) handset, same can be said about the upcoming Galaxy S6 smartphone. Anyhow, a new leak surfaced recently, courtesy of @upleaks. If you take a look at the image down below, you’ll notice a part of a mysterious HTC device in it. As you can see, the BoomSound speaker grill is diagonal here for some reason, which goes against what we’ve seen in the HTC’s One line of devices. This might be the upcoming HTC One (M9), but I doubt it, every single leak we’ve seen thus far goes against this one, and quite frankly it just doesn’t seem like it. This is more likely one of HTC’s mid-range Desire smartphones or phablets, though I have to admit I like this design, it looks interesting.
HTC might not be doing that well as far as financial results go, but the One (M9) is most definitely one of the most anticipated devices of the year. New concept renders leaked yesterday and I have to say I really like what I see there. We still have no idea what will the device look like because there’s no way to confirm the legitimacy of the leaks thus far, would be nice if HTC went with that leaked design though, no matter how far-fetched that might be. Anyhow, you can expect a great device made out of metal with improved specs compared to the One (M8). I hope that HTC found a way to trim down the bezels on the top and bottom (the black bar) though. Either way, the launch event is only about two weeks away, so stay tuned.
