In the One M9, HTC has delivered a handset this year which really aims for the fashion stakes, with an improved design, which ticks all the boxes when it comes to looks. To highlight this they’ve partnered with fashion icon and supermodel Jourdan Dunn to create a rage of new handsets in the INK line, which feature engraved designs on the rear.
This is the first handset to be released in the INK line, which Jourdan has created for HTC. With HTC making a very limited number of these handsets available for sale in Australia to people registering their interest at htc.com/AU/ink/.
The design is very much a tattoo inspired idea, with Jourdan working in partnership with leading artist Cally-Jo, who was responsible for Rihanna’s henna tattoo on her hand. Speaking about the launch of the INK design and the phone, Jourdan said
Body art is an important part of my look and, as I don’t go anywhere without my phone, it makes perfect sense to combine the two to create a uniquely personalised accessory. The opportunity to work with a brand that is famous for design and to put my own creative stamp onto a beautiful looking handset was something that really appealed, with the HTC One M9 INK really capturing my personality.
HTC has previously launched special edition handsets with designer artwork from PHUNK Studios last year with the HTC One M8. While we didn’t see those handsets here in Australia – there were only 64 created – so seeing this handset made available in Australia is a great step forward for our market.
The handset comes with the same specs as the standard M9, with Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage and microSD card expansion. The phone ticks all the boxes when it comes to looks and design, but now is your opportunity to get one with a limited edition touch.
