If the HTC One M9 doesn’t look like a re-hashing of last year’s One (M8), only with upgraded internals and a single camera on the back, then HTC has easily pulled off the greatest leak troll job in recent memory.

The watch itself was first spotted yesterday on a billboard, but we now have full promo videos for this Android Wear-powered beauty that will be made official in a few hours.
