HTC has just announced their new One M9 handset here at MWC 2015. And if you can’t tell by the picture, this is a really nice phone. So I bet many of you are wondering where you can pick one up. Well, since the device was only announced moments ago, not too many carriers have given their exact availability dates. However, many have come forward to say that they are in fact slated to carry the device eventually.
The HTC One M9 has a 5-inch Full HD display with a pixel density of 442ppi. It has a 2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor backed by 3GB of RAM, 32GB on internal storage and MicroSD expansion up to 128GB. It also features a non-removable 2840mAh battery, a 20MP rear-facing camera and a 4 Ultra Pixel front-facing camera. We went hands-on with the device just recently, and you can view our hands-on and initial impressions by following this link.
The HTC press release tells us that the device will make it to carriers come “early Spring”, and will also be available at a number of online retailers. Here’s what we know so far:
United States availability
A few carriers from the US have announced that they’ll eventually carry the newly-announced One M9. Specifically, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile have announced the phone will be available sometime this Spring. While we don’t have exact pricing or availability information quite yet, we’ll be sure to update you as more details surface. While we haven’t heard anything specifically from Verizon, the HTC press release let us know that Big Red would also carry the handset sometime this Spring.
UK mobile carrier EE has also announced that it will carry the One M9, though we don’t have any specifics on this carrier, either.
The One M9 will also be available at a number of online retailers including Amazon, Best Buy (online and in-store), Costco and Target. Additionally, an unlocked variant will be sold directly through HTC.com.
