New HTC One ME9 leak highlights various color options
HTC’s already delivered quite a few close relatives of the One M9 over the past few months – models like the One M9 Plus and One E9+ – and recently we’ve been looking at what might be in store for another such model, tipped to hit Asia as the One ME9 (or maybe just the One ME). With hardware like a 5.2-inch quad HD display, 3GB of RAM, and an octa-core MediaTek SoC, it sounded like a solid – and certainly close to top-of-the-line – addition to the company’s Android lineup. And last week we had the opportunity to get a preview of what the phone might look like, with both a leaked frame pic and one of a very final-looking render. Now a few new images of the hardware have surfaced, giving us a better look at possible color options.
Those earlier rumors mentioned the hardware launching in three colors: sepia gold, rose gold, and gray. What we see here might look more like gray, gold, and white on first glance, but that white model appears to be a two-toned handset with a golden face – just like the rose gold models we’ve seen from HTC in the past.
Otherwise, these guys look pretty much the same as what we’ve checked out before – including the return of the front-mounted fingerprint scanner from the One M9 Plus. So far we don’t have a strong sense for when HTC might launch the phone, but we wouldn’t be surprised for this one to go official in the next month or two.
