HTC has detailed its latest flagship mobile handset.
At the Mobile World Congress this week, HTC announced its newest smartphone. The HTC One M9 serves as a successor to the company's previous HTC One M7 and M8 models.
"HTC has built its reputation on challenging expectations in the mobile industry," said Cher Wang, Chairwoman, HTC. "The HTC One M9 accomplishes this once again with stunning elegance and design, combined with smart features that help bring your world to life, connecting you in a deeper way to the things you consider most important. So much more than just a phone, the HTC One M9 is an extension of who you are."
The HTC One M9 features a 5-inch full HD 1080p LCD display along with an elegant all-metal unibody design. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, octa core 64-bit (4 x 2.0GHz + 4 x 1.5GHz) CPU, 3GB of RAM, and a 2840 mAh battery running Android 5.0 with HTC Sense 7. A 20MP rear camera with 4K video recording support, and an UltraPixel front camera with low-light capture support are included as well. In addition, the device includes HTC BoomSound along with dual front-facing speakers and simulated Dolby 5.1 surround sound.
Pricing has not been detailed yet, but the HTC One M9 will launch this Spring through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. An unlocked model will also be available through HTC.com.
