HTC lifted the lid on the new HTC One ME, the Taiwanese phone maker’s new high-end smartphone, in the beginning of June. It has now announced that the device has launched in China. It is available in the country for the Chinese equivalent of around £306. It is also available in India, but is more expensive at £406.
Specs-wise, the HTC One ME sports a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) (the HTC One M9 flagship only comes with a 1080p screen), a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera (not a 20-megapixel Duo camera like the HTC One M9 Plus), a 4-megapixel UltraPixel front-facing camera, BoomSound speakers, a fingerprint scanner, support for LTE connectivity, 32 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, Dual SIM support, a MediaTek Helio X10 64-bit 2.2 GHz octa-core processor under the hood, 3 GB of RAM, and a 2,840 mAh battery. It runs Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box. Unlike the metal-clad HTC One M9, the One ME offers a polycarbonate body with a metal frame around its edges.
It is yet to be determined if HTC has any plans of launching the One ME in other markets other than China and India.
