HTC One M9 to launch in India on April 14?
HTC’s new One M9 flagship handset could launch in India on April 14th after the company issues invites to an event in Delhi. The invite says that the company is “unveiling brilliance” and is “going to showcase the most exciting revelation in the history of smartphones” which suggests the company will announce the One M9 for India at the event.
The HTC One M9 was announced at MWC and features a 5 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display with HTC’s trademark front-facing BoomSound speakers. Under the hood, there’s a 2GHz octa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 810 chipset, 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage which can be expanded using a microSD card.

As we covered in our One M9 review, the biggest change over the One M8 is in the camera department with HTC opting to replace the Ultrapixel rear camera from the One M8 with a 20MP Sony sensor, dual LED flash and 4K video recording. Sadly the One M9 also drops the dual camera functionality of the One M8 but the Ultrapixel camera does stick around, instead making its way to the front of the One M9.
The rest of the One M9 specs include 5.1 Dolby Surround sound playback, LTE Cat 6, Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.1 and a 2840 mAh battery. The One M9 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with HTC’s Sense 7 UI on top which brings new features including a theme manager and separate work and home modes.
The event in India could also be the launch of the One M9+ which was announced yesterday but with this handset limited to China at the moment, it’s unlikely it’ll be released alongside the One M9 in India on April 14th.
