HTC One M9+ specification: Hands On- HTC launched the One M9+ in India, priced at Rs. 48362. The smartphone is now available in the country. The company has also announced the HTC one E9+ and HTC 360G dual SIM for the Indian market. The HTC One M8 was the most stylish Android smartphone last year. The HTC One M9 carried that legacy forward by borrowing heavily from the watch industry and integrating a dual-metal finish on the device. However, the HTC One M9 never came to India and instead we got a larger HTC One M9+.
HTC One M9 Plus
Some people might buy the HTC One M9+ only for its looks. It is that kind of phone, with a full-metal chassis and smooth gold frame that offsets the matte finish on the rest of the body. It also brings the dual camera back, something HTC decided to forgo off in the M9. However, they later seem to have decided that this might be a good feature to have in the emerging markets. Let’s have a look at its detailed specification.
HTC One M9+ specification
5.2 inch Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen (1440x2560p, ~534 ppi) | Octa-core 2.2 GHz Mediatek MT6795T with 3GB RAM | 32GB storage, expandable up to 128GB | 20MP + 2.1MP dual rear camera, 4 MP front camera | Android Lollipop with HTC Sense UI 7 | 2840 mAh battery
Price: Rs 48,362
HTC One M9+ is powered with Octa-core 2.2 GHz Mediatek MT6795T with 3GB RAM. It’s a powerful processor which makes it more faster and smoother. The device runs Android Lollipop 5.0 with HTC Sense UI7.
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 in ONE 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.
Connectivity options on the device include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Infrared, DLNA, FM radio, and NFC. The One M9+ is backed by a similar 2840mAh non-removable battery as seen on One M9. HTC launched the smartphone in three colour options – Gunmetal grey, Amber Gold, and Silver Gold.
What is good?
Of course, the design has to be the best thing about the HTC One M9+. The full-metal body is still the best chassis on any Android phone and leaves me wondering why metal does not become a standard in phones of all brands.
Advantage of HTC One M9+, HTC Sense 7.0 UI has enough new features to make it one of the best covers on Android phones. Its quite good that all your new download come into a folder on the home screen itself and you don’t need to search for the same inside the phone.
