After all the leaks and rumors now we have everything official for the new flagship device of HTC; HTC One M9. HTC formally announced the One M9 alone at MWC event and all those rumors suggesting the launch of M9 plus fell flat as no such device has been released.
Talking about the design HTC One M9 looks quite similar to HTC One M8. However, it feels a bit lighter and slightly smaller in size than previous gen HTC flagship smartphone. HTC has introduced a new color scheme for the new flagship device. Previous silver color scheme is no more available. If in case you want a silver One M9 then you can have it Silver/Amber Rose One M9.
Unfortunately, HTC One M9 is not dust proof and water resistent but company has promised to introduce IP69 certified cases for the smartphone soon.
Display also stays the same but as per the company they have improved the display technology and this time around colors would appear more sharp and lively. Having said that HTC One M8 already had one of the best displays in the market. So, improved results will certainly bring smile on many faces and might surprise the customers with its rich and sharp colors.
Camera department is the only area where HTC have always received a lot of criticism owing to their ultrapixel technology which failed miserably. However, this time around the company has bid goodbye to 4 ultrapixel dual camera in favor of 20MP primary snapper. Unfortunately, it does not support OIS but it comes with added protection of sapphire glass and with 4k video recording capabilities.
As far as the selfie camera is considered the previous 5MP front snapper is now replaced with 4 ultrapixel camera. We would love to see how it performs.
Talking about the hardware, HTC has gone for the snapdragon 810 and we assume Sony and Samsung will use the same in their flagships. Interestingly HTC has enhanced already top performaing Boom sound speakers with Dolby Sound technology. This sound amazing, right?
The all new Adreno 430 will take over the graphics department and 3GB RAM will suffice all your multitasking needs.
All in all HTC One M9 looks a pretty good smartphone with some huge improvements over M8 especially in camera and hardware department. Company has promised that it will start shipping it after 2 weeks but we doubt it!!
