Taiwanese tech giant HTC on Sunday rolled out its new flagship smartphone ‘HTC One M9’ during a technology event in Barcelona.
HTC One M9 smartphone comes with 5.00-inch 1080×1920 display which is powered by 1.5GHz processor and supported by 3GB RAM and an advanced 20-megapixel rear camera.
Even though the refined design of One M9 is very much similar to One (M8), the new phone is lighter, smaller and more minimalistic. It also possesses a single-part front bezel, an improved volume rocker, a new placement for the Power/Lock key, and an excellent range of color options.
HTC’s flagship smartphone will be available in new color options. This includes Gun Metal Gray, silver model with rose gold accent (on frame), wholly Gold version and Pink model with Gold accent (on frame).
In HTC One M9, the company has introduced a 20MP BSI camera on the backside with dual-LED dual-tone flash and F/2.2 aperture. The maximum shooting resolution offered by the camera is 5376 x 3752 pixels, with 10:7 aspect ratio. The RAW capture and 4K video recording are also supported.
