HTC on Tuesday launched the One M9+ in India, priced at Rs. 52,500. The smartphone will be available from May 3 in the country. The company has also announced the HTC One E9+ and HTC 326G Dual SIM for the Indian market, but not provided pricing details. The two smartphones will be made available in the second half of May, said the company.
The larger variant of the flagship HTC One M9, the HTC One M9+ features a 5.2-inch Quad-HD (1440×2560 pixels) display and runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with HTC Sense 7 UI on top. The big home button on the One M9+ is a fingerprint sensor that will also support biometric authentication for the AliPay payment system in China.
The HTC One M9+ is powered by 2.2GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6795T processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. The inbuilt storage on the device is 32GB, which is further expandable by a microSD card (up to 128GB)
The One M9+ features an UltraPixel front camera and HTC’s duo rear camera setup just like the One (M8). The primary camera in the setup is a 20-megapixel shooter (f/2.2) along with a depth-sensing camera. Notably, HTC dropped the Duo camera inOne M9, explaining that the overall handset design couldn’t accommodate the 20-megapixel sensor along with a depth-sensing lens. Evidently the company managed with the bigger variant.
