Mobile World Congress has started with the official release of the HTC One M9 smartphone. It’s pretty much what we all expected after the leaks. But it wasn’t the only product HTC announced today. Check out the specs and details of what’s new on HTC’s lineup.
HTC One M9 Specs
Display: 5 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080)
Cameras: 20 Megapixel rear-facing camera (with OIS) / 4 “Ultra Pixel” front-facing camera
Processor / RAM: Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 Quad-Core Processor / 3 GB RAM
Memory: 32 GB Internal Memory with expansion slot
Battery: 2,840 mAh embedded battery
Connectivity : Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi / NFC
OS: Android Lollipop 5.0 with HTC Sense
Features: 4K Video Recording, HTC BoomSound With Dolby Audio / Available in Gold, Pink, Gunmetal, and Silver
As you can see not much has changed from the HTC One M8. The processor has been upgraded to the 810 and the battery is slightly bigger. When it comes to the camera, they got rid of the Duo Camera and have a 20 megapixel (that can record in 4K). Unfortunately there’s no mention of OIS or water-resistant casing.
While not having OIS and not being at least water-resistant aren’t exactly deal breakers, those are the differences that may make you pick a phone over another since many are rocking similar internals. I am excited to try out the BoomSound with Dolby Audio. As for the colors I of course would love to see it in gold or in pink.
HTC Grip Specs
OS: Android 4.3 and up and iOS 7 and up
Battery: 100 mAh battery
Features: Connects to external heart rate monitors / Call and Message Notifications / IP57 rated
HTC is stepping into the activity tracker world with the HTC Grip powered by UA Record. What’s great about the grip is that it works with both Android and iOS devices. This activity tracker is aimed for those with serious training regimens. The HTC Grip is waterproof and comes in 3 sizes for proper fitting.
