HTC at MWC 2016

GSMArena team, 20 February, 2016.

Introduction

HTC came to the MWC with phones for the masses. The premium mid-ranger One X9 is joined by the fashion-minded trio of Desire phones. There are audio goodies galore too!

Based on the A9 design, the HTC One X9 has a metal unibody, but on a grander scale. Its 5.5" screen is flanked by stereo speakers and that's not the only advantage over the A9 - the One X9's 13MP camera has 4K video capture!
