HTC launches One M9+ in UAE
New flagship device to be available across the country from June 1
HTC announced today that its latest flagship handset, the One M9+, will launch soon in the UAE.
Like the regular One M9, the M9+ comes with an all-metal design, though some enhancements have been made to the components. The 5.2-inch 2K display now comes with fingerprint security, and the speakers are now HTC BoomSound with Dolby Audio units.
The device also comes with a new Duo Camera, which HTC said helps users create professional-looking photos. Finally, the new M9+ comes with microSD card slot, capable of accommodating cards with up to 128 GB capacity.
"HTC's One family is all about luxury and the continued pursuit of brilliance. We created the first beautiful, seamless, all-metal phone, and our belief in the power of great design and technologically advanced engineering has been carried forward in our latest HTC One M9+, which perfectly embodies HTC's philosophy to unite individuals with their passions and empower them in their pursuits of brilliance," said Nikitas Glykas, vice president, HTC Middle East and Africa.
The device comes loaded with HTC Sense 7, the vendor's latest skin for the Android operating system. HTC said that the OS is highly customisable, and can analyse users' favourite photos to modify the look and feel of apps, colour schemes, and background.
The M9+'s Duo Camera is a 20-megapixel unit that HTC said is adept at shooting in low-light situations, and can capture video in up to 4K resolution. The lens features a sapphire glass lens cover that protects it from scratches, HTC added.
"The latest addition to the HTC One Flagship is our most innovative yet, packed with powerful, ground-breaking features, the HTC One M9+ is an incredible audio and imaging experience packed into one exhilarating, beautifully designed smartphone, which offers an individual HTC One experience to its users," said Neeraj Seth, head of marketing, HTC Middle East and Africa.
The HTC One M9+ comes in silver gold (dual tone) and gold, and will be available from du and all major retailers in the UAE from June 1.
