Pre-orders begin for the HTC One M9 in Turkey

If you live in Turkey, we have some great news. You can now pre-order the HTC One M9 from carrier Turkcell for the equivalent of $1060 USD. And if you reserve the phone between today and March 25th, the carrier will give you a $114 USD gift voucher that you can use for anything from Turkcell. There is no date listed for the actual launch of the device.

The HTC One M9 is expected to be launched tomorrow in HTC's hometown of Taiwan. We expect the U.S. carriers to start offering the device as soon as March 25th, which would be exactly one year after the launch of the HTC One (M8).

HTC's new flagship will feature a 5-inch Super LCD 3 screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. Under the hood is a 64-bit octa-core 2GHz Snapdragon 810 CPU. The Adreno 430 GPU crunches graphics. 3GB of RAM is on board and there will be a model packing 32GB of native storage and one offering 64GB of storage. If additional memory is needed, a 128GB capacity microSD slot is available. The phone is powered by a 2840mAh battery and comes with a 20MP camera on back. The front-facing shooter is the 4MP Ultrapixel camera that used to be on the back of the HTC One (M7) and HTC One (M8). Android 5.0 is pre-installed.

Typical for HTC Turkey. It will be too expensive than S6 and while S6's price will be dropped further in time, M9's will stay flat. They will sell it only to HTC fanboys.

I live in Turkey and I didn't expect to be more expensive than M8 which sold for 2.499 at launch. Exchange rates have gone up since then but you have to have a reasonable marketing strategy to have a place in the market. In Turkey, only iPhones can be sold at such a high price. LG know this and keep profit margins low but sells lots more devices. Samsung also keep their prices reasonable. I don't know why HTC don't learn from their mistakes.

I hope the price isn't going through the roof like what they did with the M8.
