The HTC One M9 will be available in South Africa from June 2015, a new presser notes. The device will be available on Vodacom as well, but there is no mention of its availability on other networks as yet.
“The HTC One M9 is an extension of you as it is attractive, intuitive and highly customisable. We are positive that South Africans will love the many benefits it will bring to their lifestyles with its enriched user experience and fantastic specifications,” mentions Neeraj Seth, HTC‘s head of marketing in the MEA region.
“Our newest smartphone, once again, pushes the boundaries of innovation and design by offering our customer a more intuitive phone and a more refined experience than ever.”
To be fair, he’s largely right.
The device boasts updated hardware, a better camera and a more streamlined design, which makes it a little more attractive over the brilliant HTC One M8]. Of course, there’s also the 5.1 Dolby surround sound system dubbed HTC BoomSound that carries over from the M8.
The device will be available in silver and gold and will be available on the Smart S contract for R529/month. We don’t have a prepaid price yet, but we could be looking at around R9000, which doesn’t seem all that bad when compared to the Samsung Galaxy S6 or the iPhone 6.
