BRING YOUR WORLD TO LIFE WITH
THE NEW HTC ONE
Get more out of every experience with the beautifully crafted HTC One M9’s
unique combination of elegance and performance
Singapore, April 27, 2015 – HTC unveiled its most personal, beautiful and powerful
smartphone yet, the HTC One M9 at the recent Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The newest flagship in the globally acclaimed HTC One family, the HTC One M9 is a classic
yet timeless celebration of beauty and elegance that combines high style and performance,
enabling you to get the most from your mobile phone.
“HTC has built its reputation on challenging expectations in the mobile industry,” said Cher
Wang, CEO, HTC. “The HTC One M9 accomplishes this once again with stunning elegance
and design, combined with smart features that help bring your world to life, connecting you in
a deeper way to the things you consider most important. So much more than just a phone, the
HTC One M9 is an extension of who you are”.
A complete celebration of design
Building on a three-year pursuit of excellence, the HTC One M9 melds the best of the awardwinning
HTC One M7 and HTC One M8 into a stunning, iconic design. Distinct metal edges
combine perfectly with graceful curves for a jewellery-grade look. Small and easy to hold, the
crafted, all-metal unibody design is highlighted by an exquisite dual-tone silver and rose gold¹
finish that is as distinctive, as it is durable. Mirror-polished gold sides cascade effortlessly into
a hairline brushed silver back panel, encasing a bright and vivid display.
HTC Sense 7: An extension of you
Your phone should make a statement about who you are and the new HTC Sense™ 7
experience puts you in control of everything. Highly customisable and intuitively you, Themes
puts you at the centre of the smartphone experience, intelligently analysing your favourite
photos to modify the look and feel of your apps, colour scheme and backgrounds.
As your always-on travel companion, your smartphone is perfectly placed to enrich your
mobile life. Sense 7 reinvents the home screen to deliver the most useful apps to the
homepage based on your location. Whether at home, work, or play, you’re never more than a
click away from the features you need with this contextual, customisable widget. A more
intelligent HTC BlinkFeed™ also makes it easier to uncover the hidden gems that surround
you by using location data to recommend points of interest, news and information.
Incredible imaging: Helping you create your best memories
With the best camera being the one you carry in your pocket, your smartphone should make
it a breeze to take brilliant, creative and fun images. The HTC One M9’s cameras are designed
to capture every moment in amazing quality, allowing you to relive those moments again and
again. The main camera features an incredible 20 megapixels that accentuate every crisp,
intricate detail and a sapphire cover lens that protects from scratches. For vivid video that
looks like the latest blockbuster, the camera also shoots movies in 4K resolution.
The best moments take you by surprise and spontaneity often doesn’t come fully lit. The
ultimate companion of the impulsive snapper, the HTC One M9 addresses low-light shots with
a powerful UltraPixel™ front-facing camera. Dynamic auto exposure and UltraPixels that
capture 300% more light than standard cameras deliver sharper, more natural and balanced
self-portraits in any lighting conditions.
HTC Sense 7 with HTC’s EYE™ Experience software makes taking creative pictures easy. A
host of new editing effects including Shapes, Prismatic, Elements and Bokeh allow you to add
a little bit of individual artistry into every shot, with the Zoe™ app automatically editing them,
putting them to your choice of music² and letting friends remix the collection with their own
shots to create a shared celebration from every moment.
With so many incredible images, quickly showing your friends those brilliant shots could
become an issue. Wherever they’re stored, the new One Gallery makes it easy to search
through your entire photo library, viewing images saved on the phone, on social media, and
on select cloud platforms. The gallery puts your whole image library at your fingertips,
searching by date, location, event, album or even the images themselves with Image Match
Exhilarating audio: Hear the difference
A truly great viewing experience deserves sound that puts you on the front row. The
HTC One M9 guarantees a larger-than-life soundtrack courtesy of HTC BoomSound™. The
HTC One family’s iconic dual front-facing speakers, now combined with 5.1 channel Dolby®
Surround sound3 simulation, get you even closer to the action, delivering extraordinary,
cinema-style surround sound. Uniting HTC BoomSound and Dolby Audio™ creates immersion
vibrant audio experience, so you can enjoy movies with rich, clear and powerful sound even
without connecting headphones or external speakers. Whether listening via the stereo
speakers or headphones, even the most discerning music fans will be blown away by the
phone’s support for perfect, 24-bit high-definition sound that surpasses even CD quality.
HTC’s unique combination of HTC BoomSound, Dolby Audio™, a finely tuned sound profile,
and Qualcomm® Immersive Audio gives all of your music and movies an unmistakable
HTC One M9 flavour.
Connecting your world
Smartphones are fast becoming the central hub for home entertainment and HTC Connect™
makes it easy to enjoy your multimedia experience beyond your phone. A three-finger swipe
on the screen connects the phone to compatible TVs or external speakers from leading
manufacturers including Harman Kardon. HTC Connect’s integration with Qualcomm®
