HTC One ME officially announced as the world's first smartphone powered by MediaTek's Helio X10 processor
HTC officially announced a new high-end Android Lollipop smartphone: the One ME, previously believed to be called One ME9. Unveiled in China, the One ME is the world's first handset to be powered by MediaTek's Helio X10 processor - a 64-bit, 2.2 GHz octa-core chipset that was announced earlier this year.

As previously reported, the One ME borrows design elements from both the One E9+ and One M9+, having a polycarbonate body that's strengthened with a metal frame. The new handset also offers a fingerprint sensor, BoomSound speakers with Dolby Surround sound, LTE, dual SIM support, and a 5.2-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display.

On the back, the One ME has a single 20 MP camera with 4K video recording and dual LED flash, while on the front we can see a 4 MP UltraPixel camera. Other features include 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a 2840 mAh battery.

HTC will launch the One ME in three color versions: meteor grey, gold sepia, and rose gold. The brand new smartphone will first be available in China and other Asian markets, for a price that hasn't been announced. We don't know when (or if) the HTC One ME will be released in other regions, but we assume we're going to find out more about this pretty soon.

I hate that fingerprint sensor so much! It looks like a home button but then you see the onscreen buttons and it just looks like a mess. smh htc

Funnily enough, it is a home button. So disjointed, disjointed... IDK why I still have faith. I guess I'm a stan...

MKBHD says the one on the m9 plus isn't a home button.

that sensor is ironically exactly like a button without any function... by the way LeTv S1 is the first phone in the world with Mediatek Helio X10 chip. Htc is not a front runner in anything except high quality speakers

I saw some Indian guy review it, press the button and it took him back to home. Can I send links here?

The One M9 concept renders were so much better

Biggest disappointment of the year when those concept renders turned out to be bunk.

They better come up with a new design language for next flagship because they have milked the sh*t out of the One series design.

Should have did the fingerprint scanner on the back. It's bad enough their design was dead but now they are just beating a dead body with a stick.

HTC. The company that went from zero products with QHD displays, to one with the most in just a few months.

Also the company that worked so hard to make their devices look as best as they could, yet at some point they decided: enough of those great designs, lets turn our device into ugly tv remote

I wouldn't say that the design is dead. It's more of a slow evolution. The One M7 was more angular with the One M8/9 being more rounded and curvy. This seems more like a Desire 610 to me.

The specs are beast and should have been on m9. But onscreen and physical button? I just have to wait for the actual device and it's price before judging it. Good to see htc is coming up with something new.

It's not a physical button. It's just a finger scanner that also happens to function as a home button when your phone is in use. *shrug* HTC

On a side note, I like the design.

I thought that LeTV was the first one with Helio X10. And I'm actually sure that that HTC ME can't qualify as the 'first one' at all

Wait? What is the processor on HTC One M9+ again? Isn't that Helio X10??

Uhm, as the ONE line wasn't confusing enough... They don't even look that different apart from each other too. :'( Reminds me of Samsung.
