HTC Launches The One M9 Prime Camera Edition In Europe

By 08:43 Mon, 02 Aug 2021 Comments

Sure, it has a recent flagship smartphone on the way in the 10, but HTC has now decided to launch a recent version of last year's top of the line offering. It's called HTC One M9 Prime Camera Edition, and so far it's only surfaced in Poland, where it became official today. This model borrows the looks of the One M9 from 2015, but changes a few of its specs.

For example, the rear capturing camera is now a 13 MegaPixel (MP) f/2.0 unit, with optical image stabilization. Furthermore, the chipset used is MediaTek's Helio X10, which has a 2.2 Giga Hertz (GHz) octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU. Finally, the Random-Access Memory (RAM) and storage amounts have been slit compared to the original M9. You acquire 2GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 16GB of expandable storage.

Everything else is identical to last year's handset, though. So it has the same 5-inch 1080p touchscreen, an UltraPixel front-facing camera, and a 2,840 mAh battery.

The One M9 Prime Camera Edition is currently offered by the Play carrier in Poland, for PLN 1 (that's 23 eurocents) upfront if you acquire a contract that's at least PLN 99.99 per month (€22.70). So it's at least pretty affordable, if not particularly impressive in the spec department. We assume the recent handset will be making its way to other markets too in the near future.

UPDATE: It turns out that the One M9 Prime Camera Edition is actually nothing but a renamed One M9s, a phone that was first unveiled in November of last year. It's unclear why HTC chose to give it a recent moniker for the European market. And speaking of that, the One M9 Prime Camera Edition is already listed on each of HTC's country websites for Europe, clearly indicating that the company has planned wide availability for the device.
