After a recent design leak of the anticipated HTC One (M9), the rumour mill has gone crazy about the upcoming device. Though nothing can be confirmed as of now, we expect HTC to showcase the device at its pre-MWC event on March 1.

First up is the Amazon listing by a casemaker TUDIA, which has started taking pre-order for the HTC One (M9)’s Ultra Slim LITE TPU Bumper Protective Case. The front of the device seen in the listing is not similar to the previously leaked design and is more identical to the HTC One (M8), however the back is completely different with a single big camera lens and dual LED flash visible. Notably, the back is very similar to one tipped by Phandroid a few days back.

For the specifications, a new report by LaptopMedia (via GSMArena) citing a source close to HTC suggests that the company won’t be giving up on the UltraPixel technology.

Earlier it was claimed that the HTC One (M9) will pack dual 20.7-megapixel rear cameras with no UltraPixel technology, and a conventional 13-megapixel front camera. But now LaptopMedia says that the front camera will be a 4-ultrapixel shooter, however the rear will still be the dual 20.7-megapixel snappers.

In December, the purported specifications of the HTC HTC6535LVW (hima) tipped in AnTuTu benchmarks had included a 5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display; a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with Adreno 430 GPU; 3GB of RAM; a 20.7-megapixel rear camera, and a 13-megapixel front camera. The AnTuTu listing was also in-line with the specifications that were leaked by tipster @upleaks earlier in December.

Now on Friday, @upleaks has suggested two new colour options of the DotView cases for HTC Hima. Apart from the existing colours for the One (M8), HTC will also introduce turquoise and yellow DotView cases at the launch.
