Remembering smartphones isn’t an easy task these days. We have so many devices rolling out from curtains on daily basis. But, we still managed to remember the flagship devices and I hope you will be happy to know that HTC One M9 is finally making its India debut on April 14th.
The 2015 flagship smartphone from HTC was announced in MWC held in Q1, this year. The smartphone is already available in USA and Taiwan. But now its time for the company to make it available for rest of the world and India is at top among their list.
HTC One M9 India launch date and details
Indian officials of HTC company have started sending invites for the One M9 launch event in the country. The event is going to held on April 14th in New Delhi.
The pricing and availability details are still unknown and they are meant to be made official during the launch event itself. I do hope HTC starts seeding out the device to consumers before end of this month, as consumers are already expecting the much hyped LG G4.
All new Samsung Galaxy S6 is already available in the country and it will offer the main head-to-head competition.
It won’t be that easy for One M9
Now, since Samsung has ditched its plastic form factor and opted premium build for its Galaxy S6, it won’t be that easy for HTC One M9 to survive.
Last year, the Galaxy S5 never took off in sales graph, which left consumers with only two options in Android section i.e. HTC One M8 and LG G3.
But now, it will be between two of them, S6 and M9, while the third one is expected to arrive next month, and G4 is already looking aggressive.
Since, all three devices are having premium build quality, so the competition will break down to Android skin, performance, camera skills and performance.
Let’s see which one of them get’s the crown in Q2 of 2015. I’m expecting HTC One M9 price in India to stay around 43k INR. Stay tuned.
Update – HTC declined to launch HTC One M9 in India, instead One M9+ is launched for the country.
