Everyone loves an underdog. They’re new, exciting, and upset expectations. In 2013, the HTC One M7 brought that incredible disruptive energy to smartphones, and the following year’s M8 ran neck and neck with the best you could buy. Today, the HTC M9 goes on sale, and it’s no longer an underdog—but it’s not exactly…
We already had a pretty good idea what HTC's next flagship smartphone is going to look like (Spoiler alert: a lot like it's last flagship). But now, demo videos have leaked, on top of everything else. You can bet this is the real thing.
The HTC One has a horrible name, but it's also a fitting one. It's HTC's One saving grace, the One thing that almost single-handedly gave an injection of adrenaline to its dying corpse. It's also the One Android phone that changed how Android handsets were made—metal beats plastic.
Leicas have some of the most-recognizable and most-duplicated features of any camera, but they've never been recreated quite like this.
The Leica M9-P is just like the original M9—still the world's smallest full-frame digital camera and still absurdly expensive—but with one major difference: (Almost) nobody will know it's a Leica.
How do you make the beautiful, expensive Leica M9 even more beautiful and more expensive? Why, you add sapphire glass, chrome, and the tanned hide of a brown ostrich. Why does stunning always have to come at such a price?
Last week's leak couldn't have been more on: Leica's officially announced the their full-frame followup to the retro-fabulous M8, as well as some chum for more mainstream users, in the form of the APS-C-sensored X1 compact, for new Leica recruits.
A supposed shot of Leica's M9—expected to be announced 9/9/09—complete with specs, was found on this Flickr page that's now locked, and it looks way interesting: a full-frame 18-megapixel CCD sensor. Oh, and what's this, the Leica X1?
Hardcore photo geeks know that Leica's M9 is supposedly due out on 09/09/09 (exactly one 9 less cool than the Sega Dreamcast's release). Now the company's second digital offering has been captured in several blurry shots from a promo.
