    HTC certainly gets positive nods from reviewers on the M8, but it still didn't help it much against Samsung and Apple.

    And the One M9 is announced.
  • Andrew Hoyle 3/1/2015 3:09:52 PM

    "Simple, elegant curves."
  • Ben Fox Rubin 3/1/2015 3:10:28 PM
    Phone made almost entirely out of metal. A new industry standard of luxury.

  • Andrew Hoyle 3/1/2015 3:13:41 PM
  • Ben Fox Rubin 3/1/2015 3:13:51 PM
    Bamford: Elegant unibody, combines some features of M7 and M8.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 3/1/2015 3:14:12 PM
    Bamford: Machined phone from a solid block of aluminum.
  • Andrew Hoyle 3/1/2015 3:14:13 PM
  • Ben Fox Rubin 3/1/2015 3:14:22 PM
    Bamford: Inside is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.
  • Andrew Hoyle 3/1/2015 3:14:29 PM
  • Ben Fox Rubin 3/1/2015 3:14:38 PM
    The 810 is Qualcomm's newest high-end processor.
  • Andrew Hoyle 3/1/2015 3:14:43 PM
  • Ben Fox Rubin 3/1/2015 3:14:50 PM
    That new processor could give the new phone a little more computing power. The 810 is also used in the LG G Flex 2 and Xiaomi’s new Mi Note Pro phablet.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 3/1/2015 3:15:11 PM
    Bamford: 20 megapixel camera on the back.

  • Andrew Hoyle 3/1/2015 3:16:10 PM
    Previous One phones used 4-Ultrapixel cameras -- these apparently used larger pixels which let in more light. Looking forward to seeing how a regular megapixel camera compares.
