It looks like the HTC One M9 is suffering from weak sales, as a report has revealed that, in its initial three months of availability, the flagship shipped 43.75% lower than the HTC One (M8) in its first three months of availability.
The news comes to us courtesy of DigiTimes who cites a report from Chinese-speaking China Business Journal. It reports, “HTC has so far shipped only 4.75 million units of its new flagship smartphone, the HTC One M9, since the model launched in the latter half of March, down 43.75% as compared to shipments of the HTC One M8 during its initial three months.”
It looks like HTC will have another disappointing year.
Why are fans not willing to get their hands on the HTC One M9. One reason could be its screen resolution. It comes with a a 5-inch with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, when the competition such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge both sport Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) screens.
Other HTC One M9 specs include a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera made by Toshiba, a 4-megapixel Ultrapixel front-facing camera, front-facing BoomSound speakers developed by Dolby Audio, 32/64 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (as much as 128 GB), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, an Adreno 430 GPU, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 2,840 mAh battery. It runs Android 5.0 (Lollipop) with HTC’s Sense 7.0 UI slapped on top.
