HTC One ME, a One M9 variant, announced in China



Whether we like it or not, HTC is slowly becoming Samsung and that mainly because the Taiwanese mobile maker is throwing a lot of devices on the market especially for the last 12 months, which might not be such a bad thing after all.

This week in China, HTC introduced a variation of the One M9 (its 2015 flagship smartphone) which is marketed as HTC One ME. The phone itself a dual SIM, retains key features and even improves some here and there, for instance the screen resolution is now Quad HD (2560 x 1440 px) at the same 5.2″ diagonal, the processor is a MediaTek Helio X10 clocked at 2.2GHz and it is an octa-core. It comes with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage, (microSD card slot for up to 128GB), 20.7MP main camera on the back, NFC, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, WiFi a/b/g/n/ac and Android 5.0 with HTC Sense 7 on top.

HTC One Me comes with a 2,840 mAh battery hid under a polycarbonate housing which is protected by a metal frame on the edges. Think of it as a mixture between One M9 / One M9 Plus (metal housing) and the One E9 / E9+ (plastic housing). As you can see it comes with those new front-facing stereo speakers from Dolby and the fingerprint sensor placed at the bottom, under the Home key.


The HTC One ME is 9.75mm thick and it weighs in at 155 grams. HTC Chine hasn’t mentioned a price tag, nor if this smartphone will go on sale in other markets / regions. But from the looks of it we might see it in shelves in other parts of the world.
