HTC is in trouble. The Taiwanese company’s latest flagship, the One M9, failed to really improve upon last year’s One M8, and sales have been slow as a result. Now, HTC is reportedly planning an interim flagship to keep them afloat until the next One, to be released in November. This phone is called the HTC Aero – and here’s what we know about it so far.
Imagine the HTC One M9, but with a larger 5.2-inch screen, a higher 1440p resolution, and an integrated fingerprint reader. It sounds a little like HTC’s 2016 flagship, but it’s actually a phone that was released earlier this year: the One M9 Plus. Despite its improvements over the One M9, the Plus hasn’t received much media attention – because it was only announced for the Chinese market. Now though, Mobile Fun are bringing the One M9 Plus to the UK!
Let’s take a look at five of our favourite One M9 cases and covers. Ready? Let’s go!
The official HTC Active Pro waterproof case for the HTC One M9 has finally arrived in stock at Mobile Fun, and we’re excited. The Active Pro is the first HTC case made to US military standards, capable of surviving a drop onto concrete from 2 metres; it also has an IPX8 rating against water and dust, ensuring it is fully waterproof to a depth of two metres for one hour. If you’re looking for a strong case to protect your One M9 from a whole host of dangers – drops, scratches, water, dirt – then this is the case for you. Take a look at our hands-on video below, and join us after the break for more info!
When HTC announced the One M9, they stated the screen was protected by the very best material, Gorilla Glass 4. Now, it’s emerged that some One M9 models are actually being made with Gorilla Glass 3 instead, meaning that they are more vulnerable to scratching and suffering damage if dropped.
