HTC has not left any room for complaints for its new flagship device. The One M9 hits at all right places where the One M8 couldn’t. The last year’s One M8 was much loved mostly for its design, build quality and more than premium looks. Going further with the same basic design, HTC recreated a new device to please the consumers. The smartphone is loaded with some of the most breathtaking specifications and we will bring every minute detail of this gorgeous device to you.
The premium-ness of HTC One M9 is nowhere below any expensive jewelry. The curve on the back fits perfectly in the natural shape of your hand. The uni-body metal design of the smartphone comes with dual-tone finish which looks way better than the one on One M8. The back of the device has jewelry grade hairline finish with scratch resistant coating. HTC One M9 will be available in three colors/finishes - Gunmetal Gray, Amber Gold, Silver/Rose gold, Gold/Pink.
It’s a complete powerhouse! With some of the most insanely awesome specs, it becomes the most desirable phone for many. The screen is of 5 inches and sports a resolution of 1920×1080 which same as the previous generation flagship. It is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 810 processor that is accompanied by Adreno 430. The memory part is handled by 3GB of RAM. The combination of these specifications will make one sure to get ultimate performance. A 2840 mAh battery keeps the device awakened for longer time and even supports fast charging.
One the connectivity front, the device satisfies our every greed. It is compatible with most of the LTE networks worldwide and is sure to work in India too. Apart from this it contains a set of all latest connectivity options any flagship should offer. This time HTC decided to take the speaker quality even further by collaborating with Dolby. Now the speakers are much better are made capable of offering 5.1 channel surround sound. Well, that’s something amazing!
One department where HTC One M8 was criticized was its camera performance. It was a huge letdown for a smartphone that is offered at a much premium price bracket. HTC has learnt from its mistakes and has made some concrete changes to the camera. The Toshiba made 20MP camera with 1/2.3” sensor size. It also supports 4K video capture. The front camera is of Ultrapixel variety with 4MP resolution.
It runs on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense 7.0 UI on top. We have seen in the past that Sense UI is one the most polished UIs we’ve ever used. And this time it comes with even more features. There is feature called Sense Home where your device will suggest some useful apps for work and home based on your location. There is another gesture support where you have to do a three-finger swipe from down to up to share your media on external devices.
On the device level, the One M9 is not waterproof. But HTC has announced to introduce a cover for the device to make it water and dust proof. The famous HTC’s Dot View has also been updated with an option to display custom message apart from the regular notifications and information.
