After the One M9, One M9+, and the new J Butterfly, we're soon going to see yet another high-end smartphone from HTC. This has been leaked so far as the One ME9, which despite how odd it sounds might end up being the official moniker for the device.
Today a new purported leaked render claims to show us the One ME9's metal frame in all its glory.
Despite using this casing, the phone's back cover will be made from polycarbonate, so this will not be another metal unibody construction.
In terms of specs, the One ME9 is expected to come with a 5.2-inch QHD touchscreen, 20 MP rear camera, 4 MP UltraPixel selfie snapper or a 13 MP sensor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage, and a 2,900 mAh battery.
MediaTek's MT6795 SoC will be doing all the hard work, and it sports a 2.2 GHz octa-core CPU. BoomSound stereo speakers will be in, as well as a fingerprint scanner embedded in the Home button.
The One ME9 will run Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense 7 on top. It should be offered in "Classic Rose Gold", "Gold Sepia", and "Meteor Gray" when it finally launches in July. The smartphone is apparently not going to be offered in the US and European markets, instead only getting a release in parts of Asia. The price is said to be around CNY 3,500, which means about $563 or €506.
they make decisions which are kinda as bad nokias were tho
Spamming high end phones is more of a Samsung thing. Nokia didn't release a flagship after another within the same year to screw their owners.
Seems like HTC is trying hard to do the "Nokia" thing with their devices.
