HTC had already made it clear before that it won’t be unveiling its flagship One M10 aka Perfume smartphone at this year’s MWC. But the Taiwanese company has launched new smartphones at the trade show — not one, but four of them. HTC has launched three mid-range smartphones — Desire 530, Desire 630 and the Desire 825. It has also launched a higher-end One X9.
The One X9 is set to go on sale sometime later this month in North Asia and EMEA countries. The Desire smartphones, on the other hand, will be going on sale sometime next month.
HTC One X9 specifications and features: The One X9 was launched in China towards the end of last year, and the one unveiled last night is the international variant. While it has stuck to the metal unibody design, HTC has pushed the BoomSound speakers towards the very top and bottom of the device. It will be available in four colors — Carbon Gray, Opal Silver, Topaz Gold, and Cooper Rose.
The smartphone flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) IPS display, and it is powered by a 2.2GHz MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795T) octa-core chipset paired with 3GB of RAM. It also offers 32GB internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 2TB using a microSD card.
