On Thursday 26th may, HTC launched a whole new series of smart phones in India. HTC has updated their Desire and One smart phone series with the 2016 versions of their smart phones. At the event HTC also launched their new flagship device the HTC 10, which will cost at around 52,990. But the phone which caught my eye most is the HTC One X9.

The HTC One X9 comes with great build quality, amazing looks and some superb specifications for the price it offers. It looks like HTC's design team has worked too hard and made another good looking smart phone after the Original HTC One M7 and M8. 

The device has got a all metal unibody design and curved glass in front. In front it has 5.5 inch Gorilla Glass protected Full HD Super LCD Display. The device runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and on top of it the HTC Sense UI. When coming to performance it has MediaTek Helio X10 Octa Core chipset coupled with 3 GB of RAM. The front camera is a 5 MP shooter and the rear is a 13 MP shooter which has support for 4K video recording and also for optical Image Stabilization.

The device will be available at retailers starting from June, 2016 for Rupees 25,990 and will give buyers an option to choose from two decent colors, Topaz Gold and Carbon Grey. Below is the full specifications of HTC One X9.
