HTC M9 Rumors
Since hearing about the concept of the new premium phone from HTC, there have been more and more HTC M9 rumors centered on the new concept. As HTC looks to increase their market share as they have become an industry leader with the success of the current HTC One M8, building on the same success is critical for the premium version.
[AdSense-A]More HTC One M9 rumors look at the expanding the integration with other peripherals such as the HTC Android smartwatch and HTC premium tablets. HTC has stated that they intend to create a new model of HTC premium tablets that will be more expensive, but well worth it. As more on the M9 rumors come available, we will continue to bring in the very latest here first.
HTC M9 Features
Probably one of the biggest rumored HTC M9 features to date is the new outer surround. The composite liquid silicone and aluminum looks to increase the durability and decrease the likelihood of blemishes and surface scratches while maintaining the same sexy appeal of the current HTC M8.
Other features of the HTC One M9 is a waterproof display, shockproof sensors, and a dustproof feature. Another feature that has been rumored is the possibility of a retina eye scanner. There have been many reports that HTC looks to either bring in a fingerprint scanner or eye scanner into the premium HTC M9 prime, but as HTC looks for something unique it would mean an eye scanner is more likely.
[AdSense-A]Many camera features will either return to the Prime such as auto focus, the DUO camera element, and some new features such as optical image stabilization. We are also expecting to see the same three color options silver, grey, white, but are hopeful that HTC will add a couple more for the launch day release.
HTC M9 Concept
The HTC M9 Concept isn’t much of a mystery as much of the same has been seen in the former HTC M8 concept. The rumored premium new HTC phone was first rumored in the M8 concept, and much of the same will hold true in the M9 concept.
The phone is expected to only be 7 mm thin which would make it even smaller than the iPhone 6 Plus. It’s amazing when we consider all that the Prime holds and HTC is still able to pack it into one of the slimmest smartphones. In many instances bigger is better, but at only 7 mm thin, the Prime will be one of the sleekest and sexiest 2015 smartphone releases.
HTC M9 Price
It was first thought that the HTC M9 Prime price would be one of the most expensive when looking at the top premium smartphones for 2015, but recent reports would suggest differently. Despite the premium features, HTC intends to keep the price of the HTC One M9 comparable with other upcoming releases.

HTC M9 Presales
The official announcement is expected by HTC within the first couple of days on the HTC One M9 Prime at the Mobile World Congress in 2015. The March event should confirm what we have been speculating, and what we have received numerous reports on. If the above holds true, then HTC M9 Prime presales should start right after the official announcement and approximately two weeks before the actual release date.
In the US, five of the top cell phone carriers are all expecting to carry the release. Sprint, Verizon, US Cellular, T-Mobile, and AT&T should be carrying both the HTC One M9 and the HTC One M9 Prime with huge pricing advantages as well. Verizon for instance will have a zero money down and a monthly payment plan for up to 24 months. AT&T and Sprint will have similar plans, but little is known if US Cellular will be doing the same.
