HTC One m9 arrives with a beautiful design, sophisticated feeling and refined design as well. Besides, its phone also supports dual anodization, and scratch-resistant coating along with sapphire glass on the camera lens. When you look at this phone, you can realise that this phone takes many inspiration from previous predecessor – HTC One M8. But overall, the M9 is much lighter and smaller, more minimalistic compared to the M8. The M9 has a single-part front bezel, new placement for the Power/Lock key, an improved volume rocker, and brand new color options. The M9 will come with many new colors choice: Silver model with Rose Gold accent (on the frame), Gun Metal Gray, Gold version and Pink model with Gold accent (on the frame). The tiny drawback is that the Galaxy S6 is not water-and dustproof anymore. But don’t worry too much cuz HTC promises that they will launch IP69-certified cases for the One M9.
As specs-wise, the HTC One M9 will report 5″ along with 1080p display. Instead of the BoseSound, the phone will come with traditional BoomSound stereo speakers. After all, the HTC is a true flagship when it packs many high-specs. The One M9 is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 platform – an octa-core 64-bit processor with four Cortex-A57 cores at 2.0GHz and four Cortex-A53 working at 1.5GHz. 3GB RAM is enough for multi-tasking also which can expandable to 32 GB storage built-in. Beside that, the M9 supports the new Adreno 430 for the graphic purposes. Another drawback, the HTC One M9 will be powered by a non-replaceable 2,840 mAh battery. Of course, it is supported by fast-charging as well, but the truth is the retail package is not a “fast charger”. Some other additional specs are rich connectivity package with LTE Cat.6 or Cat.9 (various by region) with support for 21 LTE bands, wired and wireless TV-out, GPS + GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC and Wi-Fi ac.
HTC One M9 runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop accompanied with the newest HTC Sense 7 UI. In conclusion, Sense 7 supports BoomSound connect – it allows the phone to combine its internal speakers with external ones for surround playback. The updated service also uses location specific suggestions, meaning that you will easily find various tips for nearby restaurants.
One of outstanding specs is HTC One M9 camera. For specifically, the M9 has dual-camera 20MP sensor with a 1/2.3″ sensor size. HTC One M9 comes with a 20MP BSI camera on the back with F/2.2 aperture and dual-LED dual-tone flash. The maximum shooting resolution is 5376 x 3752 px – that’s 10:7 aspect ratio. RAW capture is supported, as is 4K video recording. Sadly, the M9 doesn’t have OIS (optical image stabilization). Howerver, one pus is a sapphire glass which can protect the lens from scratches. There is a 4MP UltraPixel sensor, without auto focus. In other hand, HTC has developed new cooler effects for the main camera and a brand new Zoe apps for Android and iOS will be launched.
For price, HTC didn’t give any thing about its price, but the next successor of HTC One M8 expectedly release in March.
