HTC One M9 U.S. launch set for April 10, boasts special ‘Uh-Oh’ protection (VIDEO)
The new-generation HTC One M9 flagship smartphone now has an official launch date, as well as an exciting "Uh-Oh" protection that has you all covered.
During an HTC Americas special announcement on Wednesday, March 18, HTC's Jason Mackenzie officially revealed that the One M9 powerhouse will go on sale in the U.S. next month, on April 10. Carrier availability, however, will vary depending on operator, and it remains unclear at this point which carriers will have the smartphone on launch day.
When it comes to the special "Uh-Oh" protection, HTC pledged to send you a new phone overnight if you break it accidentally, damage it with liquid, or face some other "Uh-Oh" moment. Moreover, if you purchased an HTC One M9 from AT&T, for instance, and then decide to switch to Verizon, HTC will send you the Verizon One M9 so you don't have to pay for it again. This Uh-Oh protection will cover the device for one year (the first 12 months after purchase).
As a reminder, the HTC One M9 flagship sports a 5-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and packs a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage capacity, microSD card support for additional memory of up to 128GB, a 20-megapixel rear camera, and an UltraPixel front shooter.
On the software side, the HTC One M9 runs Android Lollipop with the latest HTC Sense 7.0 on top, rocking a slew of neat features. The handset has stirred lots of interest since its debut and is expected to be one of the most popular smartphones of this year.
No details are available yet regarding how much the HTC One M9 will cost when it launches on various carriers, but more information should become available shortly. With the smartphone all set to hit commercial availability on April 10, carriers are expected to announce their own plans for the device soon enough. The HTC One M9 should be available on all four major U.S. carriers - AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and T-Mobile.
We'll keep you up to date as soon as more information comes to light, so stay tuned. In the meantime, learn more about the "Uh-Oh" protection from the video below, or watch the full event here.
