Measuring 144.6 x 69.7 x 9.61mm and weighing 157g, the M9 is powered by a 2840mAh battery and has a 5-inch display with Full HD 1080p.

The M9 uses Nano SIM and comes with NFC and micro-USB port.

It has a 20-megapixel rear camera with sapphire lens cover and front camera with f/2.0 lens capable of 1080p video recording.

The main camera is capable of shooting 4K video.

The HTC One M9 was first unveiled in March during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

Building on three years of designing and building the HTC One, M9 melds the best of the M7 and M8.

“HTC has built its reputation on challenging expectations in the mobile industry. The HTC One M9 accomplishes this once again with stunning elegance and design, combined with smart features that help bring your world to life, connecting you in a deeper way to the things you consider most important. So much more than just a phone, the HTC One M9 is an extension of who you are,” said Cher Wang, CEO, HTC.

The M9 sports distinct metal edges combined perfectly with graceful curves for a jewellery-grade look.

The HTC One M9 will be available with a range of accessories including the second generation HTC Dot View case, which adds more retro personalisation thanks to a host of new features and colour options.

For example, the new HTC Dot View case won’t get in the way of apps such as Instagram, Snapchat and Badoo with through-the-case notifications alerting you to the latest photos, messages and check-ins.

A transparent back protects the smartphone without obscuring its metallic design.

For the adventurous, there is the IP68 water resistant Active Case and Active Headset available.
