The One M9 is a touch smaller and thinner than its predecessor but with its dual-tone metal unibody the design language is very similar. In the camera department HTC has finally dropped the 4 "ultrapixel" sensor of the predecessors that produced only very mediocre image quality results in our testing. The new model comes with a 20MP BSI CMOS sensor and at F2.2 a slightly slower lens than the M8. The lens offers an equivalent focal length of 27.8mm and is covered with scratch-resistant sapphire glass. The M9 is also the first One model that is capable of recording 4K video. Like the M8 the M9 has to make do without an optical image stabilization system. It has also lost the M8's secondary camera that captured depth information which means that the M8's Duo Cam features are not available on the M9.

Next to the lens you'll find a dual-tone flash unit for a more natural color response when shooting with flash and the front camera features a comeback of the ultrapixels with a 4MP BSI unit and wide-angle view. As with previous ultrapixel incarnations HTC promises improved low light performance over the competitio for this camera. Other technical specifications include Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 810 system chip and a microSD slot that can take cards with a capacity of up to 128GB.
