HTC One M9 it’s here and we love it!
It was presented this Sunday, 1st of March 2015 at the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona. I am sure that this was the biggest day in 2015 for all the smartphone fans around the globe.
I think that M9 is another stunning and powerful phone created by HTC. And very competitive in the Android smartphone market. Even though it’s design is very similar to M8 and M7, M9 has some exciting new things under the hood. All new chipset. New camera technology. And a number of extra options. There’s no news on cost at the moment, but it seems very likely to be the same price as before – £549 / $649 / AU$849, with contracts starting at £36 in the UK.
The release date was set for March 2015.
Dual-tone all-metal body features mirrored edges that are ergonomically tapered to effortlessly fit your grip. Its unibody back is curved to achieve the streamlined look and feel of the iconic HTC One series smartphones.
The HTC One M9 features more customizable options than ever. With the built-in HTC Themes app, you can change the look and feel of your phone using your favorite photo or online image. The HTC Themes app is able to pick colors from the photo and applies the theme you create to your wallpaper, icons, and more.
20MP main camera with sapphire camera cover lens delivers crisp, clear photos and durable scratch resistance for long-lasting use. The UltraPixel front camera provides photo and imaging control like never before.
HTC Eye™ Experience software allows you to create Split Captures, take Voice Selfies, apply Live Makeup and more. Plus, you can combine your photos and videos with your friends for footage from multiple points of view with the Zoe app.
Partnering with Dolby, the HTC One M9 recreates the 5.1 surround sound effect to deliver true left and right channel sound for a cinematic experience. HTC BoomSound™ with built in amp and Dolby Audio provides optimized sound, even from multi-channel online sources.
Available both on front-facing speakers and headphone modes, your films and games have never sounded better.
