HTC One E9+ now available in UAE
Includes 20MP rear-facing camera, UltraPixel front-facing
Taiwanese smartphone vendor HTC today announced the launch of the HTC One E9+ in the UAE.
The One E9+ is powered by a MediaTek helio X10 Octo Core 8 x 2GHz chipset and comes in dual-tone Meteor Grey, Gold Sepia and Classic Rose Gold. The handset comes with a 5.5-inch display, dual front-facing speakers and HTC BoomSound with Dolby audio.
The rear camera is 20MP and the (4MP or 13MP, depending on region) front-facing alternate comes with a wide-angled HTC UltraPixel lens, designed to capture "three times more light than a regular camera", according to HTC. HTC Sense 7 and HTC's EYE Experience features provide creative post-snap options, and include effects such as Shapes, Prismatic and Elements. The Zoe app allows users to take home movies, add music and let friends remix it with their own photos to create a shared collage.
The HTC Sense feature is also a means to customise the home-screen so that the most commonly used apps, based on current location are quickly accessible.
"We believe in pairing the latest technology with the best hardware for an unbeatable experience, which is all part of our commitment to innovation and design" said Neeraj Seth, head, Marketing, HTC Middle East and Africa.
"With our latest edition to the HTC One family, the HTC One E9+, we have balanced elegant design, advanced functionality and affordability, to bring many of our best features, from a luxuriously large display to a high mega-pixel packed camera, to a larger audience."
The HTC One E9+ is available now from mobile operators and major retailers in the UAE. No pricing information is available at the time of writing.
