The new HTC One M9 will boast a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core chip with 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, a microSD card for expansion, and a 2840 mAh battery. HTC keeps the size of its display at 5-inches and the resolution at 1080p.
The rear camera on the M9 stands out above the rest, gone are the days of duo cams or even the Ultrapixels. The M9 will now offers up a 20MP camera with some of the highlights including a sapphire lens, f/2.2 aperture, BSI, auto-focus and 4K video recording. On the front, the UltraPixel does make a return, offering the same features as found on the rear shooter of the M7 and M8.
The lens will be coated in sapphire glass to prevent scratches from ruining images.
HTC has also implemented a HDR mode, which is intended to mimic human eyesight – adjusting the exposure compensation and contrast depending on the situation.
