HTC releases the HTC one S9, a mid range device (see specs and pricing)
The Taiwan based smartphone manufacturer, HTC launched to the market another superb android device, which unlike the HTC 10 is targeted at mid-end users bearing 'one'.

Under the devices metal shell, there is 2GB RAM clubbed with a 2GHz Octa Core MediaTek Helio X10 SoC, and a Cortex-A53 CPU. The device sports an unimpressive 16GB ROM (internal storage) that is expandable by Micro SD card; HTC says the device can support up to 2TB memory
As regards the camera and video output, the HTC one S9 is built with a 13MP back camera and a 4MP front camera for selfie lovers, Powering the device is a 2,840mAh battery and device runs on Android Marshmallow tweaked with HTC sense UI, out of the box.
The HTC one S9 also sports stereo BoomSound speakers and a skew of connectivity options, including nine LTE bands, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.1 and GPS/GLONASS/Beidou support. Surprisingly the One S9 has no finger print scanner and has a €499 price tag; which is about #120,000
