After weeks and weeks of rumors and leaks, HTC has announced the company’s flagship device for 2015, the long-awaited HTC One (M9). We’ve already covered the launch of this handset, and it’s time to take a look at its specifications. The HTC One (M9) certainly looks a lot like the last two generations of HTC flagships, but its specifications are of course improved, and same can be said about the design of the device as well. Anyhow, let’s take a look at the device’s specifications, shall we.
The HTC One (M9) features a 5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) IPS LCD display along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (21GB user available out of the box). This handset is powered by Qualcomm’s latest and greatest chip, the Snapdragon 810 (MSM8994). This is a 64-bit octa-core processor we’re talking about here, and comes with an Adreno 430 GPU for graphics. HTC has included a 2,840mAh battery in this device in order to keep you going at least until the end of the day, and there’s also a microSD slot included with this device which lets you expand the internal memory.
As far as camera sensors go, the One (M9) comes equipped with a 20-megapixel snapper on the back (latest BSI sensor), which is flanked by a dual LED flash. This rear-facing shooter also sports a sapphire glass protection on top of the 20-megapixel sensor. The 4MP UltraPixel camera can be found on the front side of this device (wide angle lens), similar to the one we’ve seen in the last-gen One device, the One (M8). BoomSound is still present and accounted for here, the dual front-facing stereo speakers will make sure you a loud and clean sound output thanks to the Dolby 5.1 surround sound. Bluetooth 4.1 also comes as a part of this package, and the device comes with 4G LTE support (Cat.9).
As far as software goes, the One (M9) comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop pre-installed with HTC’s Sense 7 skin on top of it. HTC also added some improvements to their Sense 7 skin, like the new photo editor they included in there with a ton of options for your photo taking needs. There are of course numerous improvements throughout the OS, most of them courtesy of Android Lollipop itself. The device still sports the unibody metal design like its predecessor, which gives it a sleek look overall.
The HTC One (M9) will be available starting mid-March, and will come in four color options: Silver, Gunmetal Grey, Pink and Gold. That’s it, this is HTC’s new flagship, and its specifications. Let us know what you think of this device, are you happy with its design and specifications, or did you expect something else?
