HTC unveiled seven new smartphones in India yesterday, including the flagship HTC 10 smartphone and a bunch of Desire series smartphones as well. One smartphone that wasn’t revealed was the One M9 Prime Camera Edition, and now seems like it too will be launched in India soon. According to mobile retailer Mahesh Telecom, the smartphone will go on sale with a price tag of Rs 23,990.
The name ‘HTC One M9 Prime Camera Edition’ is a bit of a mouthful. The smartphone was launched earlier this month. As the name suggests, it is a new variant of last year’s One M9 with a focus on its camera capabilities. At the back of the One M9 Prime Camera Edition is a 13-megapixel snapper with dual-LED flash, optical image stabilization (OIS) and full HD video recording support. Up front, the smartphone retains the 4-Ultrapixel selfie camera.
