HTC have taken to the stage today at MWC 2015 in Barcelona to announce their latest flagship device. The HTC One M9 will offer a grand list of top notch specs along with their famous metal body. Let’s not waste anytime any time and take a look at the specs the new phone will offer.

The M9 features an all metal unibody design, which is very similar to what we saw on the M8. HTC have gone for what they call a graceful curves and jewelry-grade look. The dimensions come in at 144.6 x 69.7 x 9.61 mm. The total weight is 157g. The display size hasn’t changed with 5-inches. We also still have the same 1080p resolution. HTC’s famous front facing stereo speakers are also onboard. This includes HTC’s BoomSound. Battery life sees a decent increase from 2,600mAh to 2,840mAh.

Internally we have the Snapdragon 810 chipset which includes an 64-bit Octa-Core architecture with 4 x 2GHz and 4 X 1.5Ghz processors. We also have 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage with a MicroSD slot for expansion.  HTC have gone for a higher MP camera this time around. Offering a 20MP rear facing camera with sapphire cover lens and 4K video support. The front facing camera offers HTC UltraPixel BSI sensor with 26.8mm lens, f/2.0 aperture, and 1080p video recording support.

Lastly we have software with the device running Android 5.0. HTC are also upping HTC Sense up to version 7. This includes more personal customization that allow for different home screens based on home or work locations.

The new HTC One M9 will be available in dual-tone silver and rose gold, single-tone gunmetal grey, single-tone gold and dual-tone gold and pink. Release is set for mid-March. We have included the full specifications below.
