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.
