HTC has quietly launched another variant of last year’s One M9 smartphone. Called the One M9 Prime Camera Edition, the smartphone has been unveiled in Poland. As the name suggests, this is basically the same device as last year’s One M9, but with a few changes, especially in the camera department. In place of the 20-megapixel rear camera on last year’s smartphone, the One M9 Prime Camera Edition comes with a 13-megapixel snapper instead.  

The One M9 Prime Camera Edition’s 13-megapixel rear camera is accompanied with dual-LED flash, and features like optical image stabilization and 4K video recording capabilities. Up front, the new smartphone retains the 4-Ultrapixel selfie camera.

As far as design is concerned, the One M9 Prime Camera Edition looks identical to the One M9 smartphone. It boasts an all-metal unibody design, and will be available in the grey and gold colors. As for the price, the smartphone is available through Poland’s carriers with a PLN 99.99 per month plan, which roughly translates to  Rs 1,700.

The smartphone features a 5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display, and is powered by a 2.2GHz MediaTek Helio X10 octa-core chipset paired with 2GB of RAM. In comparison, the One M9 was powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 octa-core chipset paired with 3GB of RAM.

The One M9 Prime Camera Edition also features 16GB internal storage (as opposed to 32GB on last year’s smartphone), microSD card slot, and a 2,840mAh battery. Connectivity options include 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, and GPS. On the software front, it runs on Android Lollipop wrapped under Sense UI.

With the recent launch of the flagship HTC 10, it is a tad baffling why the company keeps going back to older models and launch variants. Recently, it also launched the One S9, which looks like the One M9 but comes with features that seem relatively ancient.
