The HTC One M9 was a major fail. It had all the makings of a great phone, but the same design as the year prior (like Apple) yet was criticized for it. However, the shortcomings with the camera, battery life and other things kept it from succeeding, not just the design.
In 2016 HTC will completely abandon the design and go with something different. A few photos have recently leaked about it, not to mention the name. We're hearing it will be called the HTC 10, have a brand new design, a beautiful metal frame, and a Samsung-like hardware home button. The image above is the latest leak.
The HTC 10 should be announced in March, and released in mid to late April, according to reports and rumors.
HTC has stated it looks to completely change things in 2016, but we don't have any idea yet what that means. I have a feeling it will be something similar to the HTC One A9 but better, bigger, with a fingerprint scanner and some other fancy features to compete with Samsung and LG. They need to make changes, and fast. Last year the One M9 was released in March, and we're expecting the same in 2016. It could be a tough choice between whatever HTC has brewing, and the new Galaxy S7.

5 Reasons to Wait for the Galaxy S21 & 5 Reasons Not To
Wait for Faster Storage
The Galaxy S20's UFS 3.0 storage will soon be surpassed by another standard.
Samsung has started making the industry's first 512GB UFS 3.1 chip. According to Samsung, the 512GB eUFS 3.1 processes up to 60 percent faster than UFS 3.0. Random read and write speeds are apparently up to 60% faster.
What this means is that we'll soon see quicker transfers of the high-definition videos and photos shot with smartphone cameras.
Samsung says in addition to the 512GB option, the company will also have 256GB and 128GB capacities available for flagship smartphones that will be launched later in 2020.
So while it doesn't call it out by name, there's a good chance this technology appears on the Galaxy S21 series.
For more on UFS 3.1, take a look at Samsung's guide.
