One ME, HTC's third Quad HD smartphone, launches in China and India
posted by Florin T. / Jun 24, 2015, 7:20 PM
Just like the more expensive One M9+, the One ME features a fingerprint scanner, and a 5.2-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (thus being HTC's third Quad HD handset, after the M9+ and the One E9+). However, unlike the M9+, the ME is not completely made out of metal: it has a polycarbonate body with a metal frame around its edges.
Another thing that's different on the One ME is the processor: a 64-bit, 2.2 GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio X10. Moreover, the new HTC handset has a regular 20 MP rear camera, instead of the 20 MP Duo rear camera of the M9+.
Running Android Lollipop, the HTC One ME also features BoomSound speakers, a 4 MP UltraPixel front-facing camera, LTE, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2840 mAh battery. Dual SIM support is included, too.
At the moment, we don't know if the HTC One ME will be released around the world. Would you buy one?
Update: The One ME will also be available in India starting this week, but it's going to be more expensive there: about $640.

What is going to kill them is the price. If I am in places like China, I will never buy all these expensive cheap phones. There are many alternatives. With this type of pricing, HTC should measure their coffin before they die.

Samsung is going to put out 10 new galaxy devices in Indian market in 9k-18k INR within a quarter. Will you call it lowering variants ? More Core's and J's will come soon. http://economictimes.indiatime

Its called market saturation, and its working will for them because they sell a ton of them cheaper phone. Just like Nokia older (no windows) cheap phone are everywhere in developing country, where most folks don't spend big money on phone. That's the difference $$$$ price. Hytc didn't get the memo.

Normally speaking, too many flagships in a quarter is definitely wrong. But let's try to imagine how big the China market or India market is. I don't know what the result will be, but it may be a good strategy to meet needs of different kinds of people. By the way, One ME is the most attractive one among these flagships for me.

I personally think that HTC sucks big time for a couple of years now since i remember HTC one M8 should be replaced with its desire eye alternative since it has better camera so the M8 would be perfect then the M9 should be replaced with M9+ there marketing is just bad for this phones as it was for Samsung just before S6 remember there was always 2 versions of note And S one SD one exsynos and the exsynos version always have lagging and heating and also the downgraded version of those phones with almost the sane name and dual SIM versions was impossible to understand Note 3 9000 9002 9005 and still it's almost the same way.
