HTC is really confusing us with its high end smartphone output recently. This year has been a mess frankly, and after the utterly underwhelming One A9 was launched last week, the company is now putting out yet another One M9 variant. This time it is a Chine specific One M9e, which will have watered down specs but will maintain the high end classy design with metal unibody.
That sexy design alone is a reason to opt for this over the One A9, but the A9 is a global smartphone and the One M9e is not.
Under the hood it is a toned down One M9, coming with a 5-inch 1080p Full HD screen with a pixel density of 441ppi. Other specs include an eight core MediaTek MT6795 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of native storage, micro SD card expansion to 128GB, a 13 megapixel main camera, and a 4MP front facing lens with HTC's UltraPixel technology.
HTC is asking ridiculous amounts of money once again and the One M9e will retail for the equivalent of $425 in China.
