HTC One M9
HTC will be launching their latest flagship, the HTC One M9 in Australia this week at a launch event in Sydney. We’ll know more about when we’ll see the phone go on-sale here in Australia and where you can get the phone and the awesome accessories. To start the build-up to launch, HTC has released a series of videos showing off the HTC One M9 and answer a few questions if you had any.

There’s five videos, starting with a full ‘First Look’ commercial which shows off a lot of the features from the M9, from the hardware perspective including the new dual-tone/dual-finish design, the cameras including the UltraPixel front-facing camera and 20MP rear facing camera with sapphire lens, BoomSound speakers with Dolby and a lot of the software features including the Theming capabilities, Sense Home widget, the improved Blinkfeed with Mealtime suggestions, Camera effects and HTC Connect.

The rest of the videos go into features from the First Look, so check them out and see what you think:

HTC Connect

HTC BoomSound with Surround sound

HTC Sense Home

Finally, and this isn’t actually new, my favourite part of the HTC One M9 release is this really great commercial for the HTC One M9 with a voice over from Robert Downey Jr. It’s not those weird commercials from last year which mostly confused people, it’s just a really well put together commercial with a cohesive message.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

When is the HTC event in Sydney? Says this week, but which day?

IIRC last year, the day HTC had the event in Australia was the day the phone was available for purchase?


I don’t know about the silver with the gold around it. It might look better in person though. I think I’d be sticking with the grey.


Yeah, that ad is good. If HTC spent a bit of money getting it onto free to air here, it would spark people’s interest.
