Incredible imaging: Helping you create your best memories
With the best camera being the one you carry in your pocket, your smartphone should make it a breeze to take brilliant, creative and fun images. The HTC One M9+’s cameras are designed to capture every moment in amazing quality, allowing you to relive those moments again and again. The technology of the depth sensor captures detailed depth information from a scene and enables you to select the point of focus, thus allowing you to create professional-looking portraits with UFocus™. Copy & Paste lets you paste a person from one photo to another and Dimension Plus™ presents a unique perspective on your photos by letting you view your photos from a different angle by simply tilting the screen, giving you a 3D experience much to the delight of your family and friends.
The best moments take you by surprise and spontaneity often doesn’t come fully lit. The ultimate companion of the impulsive snapper, the HTC One M9+ addresses low-light shots with the new and improved HTC UltraPixel™ front-facing selfie camera with dynamic auto exposure, delivering sharper, more natural and balanced self-portraits in any lighting conditions.
The HTC One M9+ comes with a 20 megapixel camera that accentuates every intricate detail in addition to a sapphire glass lens cover that protects it from scratches. For vivid video that looks like the latest blockbuster, the camera also shoots movies in 4K resolution.
HTC Sense 7 with HTC’s EYE Experience software makes taking creative pictures easy. A host of new editing effects, including Shapes, Prismatic and Elements, allows you to add a little bit of individual artistry into every shot. The Zoe app can then automatically create amazing home movies on the fly, adding your choice of music and letting friends remix it with their own shots to create a shared celebration from every moment.
With so many incredible images, quickly showing your friends those brilliant shots is a breeze. Wherever they’re stored, the new HTC One Gallery makes it easy to search through your entire photo library, viewing images saved on the smartphone, on social media, and on select cloud platforms. The gallery puts your whole image library at your fingertips, searching by date, location, event, album or even the images themselves with Image Match.
Exhilarating audio: Hear the difference
A truly great viewing experience deserves sound that puts you on the front row. The HTC One M9+ guarantees a larger-than-life soundtrack courtesy of HTC BoomSound. The HTC One family’s iconic dual front-facing speakers, now combined with 5.1 channel Dolby Audio surround sound3 simulation, get you even closer to the action, delivering extraordinary, multidimensional cinematic listening. Uniting HTC BoomSound and Dolby Audio creates total audio immersion, so you can enjoy movies with theatre-like sound even without connecting headphones or external speakers. Whether listening via the stereo speakers or headphones, even the most discerning music fans will be blown away by the phone’s support for perfect, 24-bit high-definition sound that surpasses even CD quality. HTC’s unique combination of HTC BoomSound, Dolby Audio, and a finely tuned sound profile, gives all of your music and movies an unmistakable HTC One M9+ flavour.
For a standout look, the HTC One M9+ will be available with a range of unique and customisable accessories including the second generation HTC Dot View case, which adds more retro personalisation thanks to a host of new features and colour options. A transparent back keeps your smartphone pristine without hiding it from the world, with the case injecting fun into even the most tedious commute by transforming into a mini games arcade.
