We know that the HTC One M9 will be launched globally towards the end of March, but the question is, when exactly towards the end of this month. If a slip-up is to be believed, the Taiwanese phone maker’s new flagship will be released on the 25th of March, in the US at least.
The image you see above is a screenshot of a listing from US retailer B&H. Note that if you visit B&H’s HTC One M9 product page, the smartphone is listed as “not available.” The page previously said that the smartphone would be available on the 25th of March at 12 am.
As for the price, B&H is asking for $649 for the SIM free version of the device. This translates to around £432.
So why does the 25th of March make sense? This was the same date the HTC One (M8) was launched last year.
To recap, the HTC One M9 sports a 5-inch 1080p screen, 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 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (as much as 128 GB), Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor under the hood with four cores clocked at 2 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 2,840 mAh battery. It will run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) with HTC’s Sense 7.0 UI slapped on top.
Phones LTD will let you know when the HTC One M9 will be available in the UK.
