For the last few years HTC has used the “HTC One” brand for its flagship smartphones. This year the company dropped the One from and introduced a new phone with top-tier specs and a new name: the HTC 10.
But that doesn’t mean the HTC One line is dead. The company just launched a new phone in Europe, and it’s called the HTC One S9.
The phone has a 5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a MediaTek Helio X10 octa-core, 64-bit processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a microSD card slot for up to 2TB of removable storage.
Other features include 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC. The phone has a 13MP rear camera with auto-focus and optical image stabilization, an UltraPixel front-facing camera, HTC BoomSound audio with dual front-facing speakers, and a 2,840 mAh battery.
There’s no fingerprint sensor or USB-C port. But the HTC One S9 looks like a decent mid-range phone. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really have a mid-range price: it’s expected to sell for 499 Euros, which is about $565 US.
