Hasan Kaymak is back and in spite of the fact that the HTC One M9 was launched over the past week, that doesn’t stop him from reimagining the device. He dubs the following concept the HTC Nexus 9 aka HTC One M9 Google Play Edition.
Also, this may end up as the HTC One M10, although I doubt it. Anyway, we’re dealing with an edge to edge device with BoomSound speakers, that are now very discrete and feature that slit-based design from the leaks. There’s a dual microSD card slot on board and the case remains an unibody metallic one with the back side virtually identical to the past HTC One models.
There’s a 20 megapixel rear camera on board and I find those big volume buttons interesting, with their shiny approach. The front camera has a big sensor and the device seems to feature a new type of UI, with larger icons, a flatter design and based on shades of blue. Specs include a 5 inch Quad HD SLCD4 screen, a 3720 mAh battery and 4 GB of RAM.
Fancy a carbon fiber tablet? Well, that’s what Hasan Kaymak Innovations is proposing pretty much, via the concept designed below. The slate is called HTC One Carbon and it takes some minor cues from the HTC One M9.
This one is an 11 inch tablet, that’s aimed at pre-empting the 12 inch iPad Pro or the upcoming (rumored) Sony and Samsung big screen slates. This HTC tablet packs a Snapdragon 810 processor, a front facing 4 ultrapixel camera and a main camera without a flash. The back side seems to be based on some sort of interweaved material, like the chains of a medieval armor or a basket made of twigs.
The only objection I have is that the device seems rather thick. I also noticed two big side speakers, that feel a bit like Samsung’s older slates. I won’t be mean and say the Nexus 9 flopped, but… it kind of did. Would the HTC One Carbon do better?
Jonas Daehnert aka Phone Designer may have designed a stunning HTC One M9, but he didn’t forget its Windows Phone version. Judging by the predecessor, this unit may end up being called HTC One M9 with Windows 10.
Anyway, it keeps the slim allure, big front camera and pill shaped buttons. The screen has slim bezels and it appears that the designer uses an older version of Windows Phone here. People who are fond of Lumias may find a reason to switch to HTC if this becomes real. If only HTC would decide to throw in some extra software on the Windows machines they make.
They’re more than capable to deliver photo editing software, maybe some music software, social network or game streaming app. Anyway, try to forget about the HTC One M9 leaks for a bit and enjoy this Windows 10 concept. What do you think?
You’ve all probably heard of Martin Hajek, an excellent concept phone designer, who usually renders Apple gear, but doesn’t shy away from the occasional Samsung or HTC phone. Today he gives us a very nice looking comparison, pitting a HTC One M9 render against the Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6.
The HTC One M9 stands out of the crowd of three with a more rounded body and very small bezels, plus it has the biggest front camera. I have to say that the placement of the audio jack on the lower right is rather odd. The speakers here are front side slits, while the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 feature tiny speaker holes on the lower right area. Actually, the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 are very much alike, in the lower part of the case.
Notice how the HTC One M9 is the only one without a physical Home button and also without a fingerprint scanner. In spite of the HTC One M9 and Galaxy S6 being many months older than the iPhone 6, the Apple unit is still slimmer, quite clearly so. In spite of saying that the Galaxy S6 borrows some design cues from the iPhone 6, the HTC One M9 also does that through the pill shaped buttons.
Obviously, these are mere renders and final devices may look different… Which do you prefer?
It’s no secret that the HTC One Max wasn’t exactly a hit for the Asian device maker, so hopefully version 2.0 of the phablet will solve all the problems. Hasan Kaymak Innovations has rendered this model, taking one or two cues from the leaked HTC One M9renders.
The device features a big front camera with center placement and slit-shaped speakers. It has a Duo camera at the back and a bezel-free edge to edge display. If the phablet approach is kept from the predecessor, this one should be a model with a 5.5+ inch screen, maybe even a 6 incher. The unit seems to be made of metal, with an unibody aluminum shell included.
Android 5.0 with HTC Sense 7.0 is available here and I’m expecting optical image stabilization on the back camera, 4K video capture, 3D features and obviously refocus functions. Seeing how this is a big device and HTC never liked ultraslim models, HTC One Max 2 could be a biggie, with a 9 or 8 mm waistline.
Remember this post that we called a teaser and we were pretty sure that it was a preview of a new HTC One M9 design? Well, it appears we were right, since Jonas Daehnert has rendered the famous 2015 HTC flagship and he did that in style.
The designer followed closely all the leaks related to the device and turned them into realistic looking renders. Thus, we get an unibody design handset, the HTC Hima aka HTC One M9, with slits for BoomSound speakers and a slightly rounded back. The bezel of the display is narrower than the predecessor’s and at the back we’ve got a big square camera, as the leaks predicted.
The front camera is centered and next to it there are sensors, while the right side of the device holds pill shaped On/Off and volume buttons, as well as SIM card tray. The speaker grille is composed of a series of minuscule beehive-like holes, the kind that tends to gather dust and dirt on it as time passes. Still, the grilles look great from the distance.
The frame of the phone feels a bit rough, or better said tough, since it adds an extra air of beefy resilience to the device. For some reason I like the silver version of the Hima more than the gold one.
The phone designer community is split into 3 these days: those who design HTC One M9 concepts, those who render the Samsung Galaxy S6 and those who design anything else. I have a feeling that this is yet another attempt at envisioning the HTC One M9, the one shown below.
Jonas Daehnert is its creator and he posted it to the Phone Designer Facebook page, where you can check out his nifty designs. He even made it a cover picture, so it’s a big deal. The first hint it’s a HTC M9 is the slit speaker at the top and considering the leak this year HTC will go with discrete slit speakers, so… Also, it’s important to mention the background of the designer, who has a tendency to create Nokia models, so we could be wrong.
However, most of his Lumia concepts (and most Lumia concepts on the web) still keep elements of the Fabula Design, which I don’t quite see here. There’s a metal and polycarbonate thing going on here, with gently curved corners and what seems to be a curved back, considering the way the phone sits on the table. Case in point: Lumias don’t have curved profiles. Ready for a new HTC Hima render?
Created by Deviantart user Tenplus two, the interesting HTC device shown below has a certain Nexus vibe and honestly speaking, it looks better than the Nexus 6. It’s a pure Google device, with stock Android 5.0 Lollipop and the typical HTC approach.
I did notice it keeps that approach only at the top, with a BoomSound-style singular speaker, while at the bottom there’s no second speaker like that. The case is all metal, unibody of course and the device seems a bit thick for modern standards. Its back is totally glossy or maybe even glassy, as it’s rumored for the Galaxy S6. After HTC’s semi failure with the Nexus 9, that was not well received in reviews, is there room for a new HTC Nexus phone?
They’re the ones that got the first gig to do such a phone, so there’s always a special spot for HTC in history. Unless the glass back is made of sapphire, I can’t exactly say anything about this HTC concept phone baffles me…
We knew that Hass. T was working on a HTC One M9 concept, on account of his various teasers and today we get to see the finalized concept. This one stands out through a series of impressive quad speakers, placed at the front.
The front camera also seems to have a small grille around it, maybe hosting a ring LED flash, like the one from the Nexus 6. HTC One M9’s speakers seem to be pretty big and I expect the 90+ decibels of the BlackBerry Passport to be beaten and also for the M9 to beat the sound quality of the already great HTC One M8. The smartphone is very slim and it has a slightly sloped metal frame.
The back is curved and matte and the camera lens is a bit too small for my liking and for a logical camera to body ratio, if you ask me. I find it interesting that the supposed flashes around the camera, actually seem like cameras itself. That’s an interesting color approach, that the designer claims is black/slate.
At the end of January @evleaks published a picture of the HTC One M9, but it was a blurry render, that didn’t exactly surprise us. The only surprise was the fact that the small speaker holes were gone, replaced by slits. Deviantart user hamdir has turned those leaks into full fledged renders, with crisp images in the mix below.
He based these HTC Hima concepts on the HTC One M8 template, with some modifications. As you can see, the black bar with the HTC logo below the screen is now gone, being replaced by an expanded screen area. We’re showing you two versions of the phone, one with a 5.2 inch diagonal and one with a 5 inch one and the only visible difference is the narrower bezel on the 5.2 inch model.
The profile and back of the HTC One M9 stay the same as on the M8, but the Duo Camera has clearly been replaced by a singular cam. The front camera has also been moved to the center of the top area of the handset and the chrome chamfers of the M8 are gone as well. What do you say about this ultra realistic design? Possible?
