HTC has announced their latest flagship smartphone, the HTC One M9 at this year’s Mobile World Congress. The One M9’s design is pretty much the same as its predecessor including the 5-inch, 1080p display.
What’s new is that the M9 will have a silver and gold two-tone color scheme. HTC’s BoomSound speakers have also been upgraded with the addition of Dolby Audio Surround. HTC’s UltraPixel camera sensor has been moved to the front to give space to the 20MP camera at the back and protected with sapphire glass.
HTC’s new flagship is one of the first smartphones to have Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor and has 3GB of RAM. It has 32GB of storage which is expandable with the microSD slot. The HTC One M9 will also come in Gunmetal Grey, Silver, and Pink.
All the bells and whistles are included such as LTE capability, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, NFC, and other sensors.
HTC also announced its 2nd generation Dot view case to go with the One M9.
Along with the new HTC One M9 Android smartphone, HTC also announced the HTC Grip fitness tracker in partnership with Under Armor. The fitness tracker features a curved PAMOLED display that easily reads time, distance, and notifications and will last up to 2.5 days on a single charge. The HTC Vive is the company’s own VR headset with its partnership with Valve. The company touts the Vives 70 sensors that allows you to move around with the Vive on as well as its 90Hz refresh rate to reduce motion sickness. The developer version of the Vive will be available in Spring with the consumer version being promised before the end of 2015.
