HTC announced their newest edition to the One lineup today. The new smartphone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HTC Sense on board. HTC has tried to maintain aggressive styling on their new device, but one can’t help but notice the striking similarity to the Apple iPhone design.
HTC One A9 comes in Carbon Gray, Opal Silver, Topaz Gold, and Deep Garnett. The HTC One A9 will be available via mutiple carriers and retailers starting in November 2015. It will have the following specs:
5″, full HD, AMOLED Gorilla Glass screen
13MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization
Support for HTC Rapid Charger 2.0
Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor
Available in 16Gb and 32GB variations with support for up to 2GB in SD card storage
During MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona, Spain HTC unveiled their new best thing the HTC One M9. Now, I know what you’re thinking, the One M9 looks a lot like the One M8, right? We can’t worry about this too much, as a two year “look cycle” seems to be the norm these days.
The M9 and M8 both have a 5-inch display and cases that are made of metal. New specs on the M9 are a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor (64 bit), 3GB of RAM, 20 megapixel rear camera with dual-LED, 4 megapixel front facing camera and will launch with Android 5.0 (Lollipop).
The HTC One M9 will be available in colors, similar to Apple’s iPhone 6 but with a twist. Silver with gold trimming, dark grey with silver trimming and gold body with black trimming.
No pricing or availability on M9 have been giving, but expect a launch in the very near future. You can sign up for information as it rolls out via this link to HTC.
It’s almost that time of the year when all tech geeks travel to Las Vegas and get lost in a sea of technology and people for several days.

This morning T-Mobile held their Un-Carrier Event, but before things took off the carrier started flipping on their 4G / LTE network in 7 major cities before the official announcement.
T-Mobile talked it’s “Simple Choice plan” which eliminates annual service contracts for consumers and allows them to move to one simple rate plan that offers unlimited text, talk and web.
With the new Simple Choice plans customers start with one line at $50 a month and receive unlimited talk, text and web with 500MB of data. A second line will cost you an additional $30 a month and each line after will cost you $10. If you feel 500MB isn’t enough (it isn’t), you can pay an additional $10 per line for 2GB of data. Unlimited 4G / LTE data is available for $20 more a month per line. Read more
LG wasn’t the only company that decided to crash Samsung’s Event in Times Square, New York. HTC sent some reps along with the HTC One to grab some of the attention away from The Galaxy S 4. The reps showed off the sound quality and “ultrapixel camera” on the handset.
A lot of the viewers were impressed with what they saw, a lady shared “Better than Samsung”, a gentleman talked about how the handset looked saying “It’s slick, smooth, I’m gonna tell you something, it’s sexy!” and another guy even said, “I might have to switch from my iPhone.”
If you weren’t able to make it to London or New York City to attend the HTC event, no worries HTC posted a video of the event from London to YouTube. During the event CEO of HTC, Peter Chou unveiled the HTC One. Also, the CEO of AOL, Tim Armstrong spoke on the partnership with HTC.
The video is about 40 minutes long, but you get to hear all about HTC One and some of the features the new device has to offer like HTC BlinkFeed, HTC Zoe and HTC BoomSound.
