In addition to the full aluminum body, this sleek handset sports an edge-to-edge 4K display, 42.0-megapixel dual-lens rear camera, and a massive 7450 mAh internal battery for extended use.

A video leaked ahead of Mobile World Congress purportedly shows the all-new HTC One M9, which sports an all-metal "dual-finish" frame, with the back being silver and the edges gold. The main difference is that the M8's rear-facing dual-camera has been replaced with a 20-megapixel camera on the back, and a single, 4-megapixel camera with "Ultrapixel" technology for better low-light selfies, on the front. No word yet on pricing or availability. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Seriously, HTC has done something pretty special with the One line, and I'm encouraged that Peter Chou and company appear to be back on the right track. Just give me a One X running something closer to stock Android 4.0, HTC, and I believe you've got the best smartphone ever made.
