HTC One M9 officially revealed

HTC has revealed the latest version of its flagship phone - the HTC One M9. The handset’s more of an evolution on the One M8, rather than anything revolutionary, but features numerous small improvements in specifications and features.

The HTC One M9 features the much-talked about Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, which can be expanded further by using a micro SD card. HTC's also decided to retain the same 5-inch Full HD display so those hoping for a super-sharp display like the LG G3's screen will be disappointed

Instead, the Taiwanese firm is hoping to turn heads with a new 20-megapixel camera. This new high-end snapper has a pair of LED flashes and is capable of recording 4K video. There's also a 4-megapixel Ultrapixel camera on the front to improve selfie snaps in low light conditions.

The One M9 will be powered by Android's latest OS, Lollipop 5.0, and use HTC's own Sense 7 interface, which allows users to customise almost every aspect of the phone - backgrounds, fonts, sounds - you name it. The battery is a 2840mAh Lithium-Ion power pack that HTC says will last around a day.

The One M9 shares the same classy looks as its predecessor, with a softly curved, brushed aluminium unibody design, but it's slightly narrower, shorter and thicker than the M8, has a new two-tone colour scheme and BoomSound speakers top and bottom.

HTC's new flagship phone will go on sale in the UK on 31 March, just a week before the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
