The HTC One A9s Pro Arrives In Malaysia!

The HTC One A9s Arrives In Malaysia!

21 December 2016HTC Corporation just launched the latest smartphone in the award-winning HTC One family, the HTC One A9s to the Malaysian market. Drawing on HTC’s iconic design pedigree and world-renowned technological innovation, the One A9s is created to inspire a new generation of phones that offers impeccable precision craftsmanship and quality at remarkably affordable value.

The HTC One family has won numerous industry awards for its iconic designs and incredible features, and the HTC One A9s continues in this tradition. The HTC One A9s is encased in a nature-inspired, dual-finish metal body that perfectly glistens with light from its frame. Its polished edges comfortably fit a 5” screen in your hand, and its diamond-like cut buttons and power button grooves demonstrate attention to every detail.

More than just beautiful, it’s also durable, crafted to withstand hundreds of drop and scratch tests in addition to hundreds of hours of extreme weather testing for long-lasting reliability.

Instant access at your fingertips

The HTC One A9s protects your valuable data but opens at a simple tap. An ultra-fast fingerprint sensor sits directly below the HD display, easily recognizing your fingerprint from almost every angle and position. Your fingerprint can also be the key to easily unlock protected apps locked with HTC Boost+, a powerful suite of tools to maximize your smartphone’s security, privacy, and performance.

Giving you more control and freedom

HTC Boost+ keeps your phone in tip-top condition by dynamically allocating resources as needed, making switching between apps smoother while reducing the unnecessary power consumption of background apps. Boost+ also de-clutters your phone by clearing up temporary files and giving you reminders about apps you haven’t used in a while. It’s the single best way to keep your HTC One A9s running like new long after you purchase it.

You don’t just want our phone to run like new, however, you also want it to run like you. The HTC One A9s lets you personalize your phone as unique as you are. HTC Freestyle Layout frees you from an on-screen grid and lets you get creative. Drag icons, stickers and widgets anywhere. Layer them, overlap them, group them and more. You can even link stickers to apps, and get rid of on-screen icons entirely. The home screen is yours – use it your way.

Capture memories that come to life

Few things on a smartphone are as important as the quality of its cameras – they will capture your memories, life’s joys, and special moments to share and keep forever. For this reason, the HTC One A9s features an outstanding 13MP main camera with autofocus for sharp, clear photos. You’ll capture low light details with its BSI Sensor and get enhanced editing control with RAW capture in Pro mode.

The 5MP front camera of the HTC One A9s makes brilliant selfies simple. Take hands-free selfies with Voice Selfie, or use Auto Selfie and take your own shots with just a smile. You can even smooth out your skin tone and beautify yourself before you shoot with Live Makeup.

A great camera is only as good as its ability to forever save, find, and share your memories, and the HTC One A9s offers unlimited free storage with Google Photos1. You won’t have to worry about running out of storage space on your phone since all your photos and videos are stored in the cloud for easy access. Plus, you can find any photo fast and easy with the Search function, and locate photos by face, location, objects and themes, or manually search for photos with keywords.

 

HTC One A9s Pricing & Availability

The HTC One A9s will be available beginning 26th December 2016 in Malaysia for the price of RM 1,159 / ~US$ 259.

HTC One X9 Smartphone Launched @ MWC 2016

Barcelona, Mobile World Congress, February 21, 2016 – Following the trend that HTC set for all-metal smartphones when it launched the HTC One M7, its design team has, once again, raised the bar when it comes to creating beautifully crafted devices.

Driven by the belief that design should be inspired by both your surroundings and personal and cultural influences, such as fashion and art, the newest member of the award-winning HTC One family – the HTC One X9 – pulls through the look and feel of high end silk, creating a softer, warmer and more luxurious finish to the phone.

Taking cues from the company’s metalmorphics philosophy, which draws on the natural beauty around us, by using rich, striking colors and unique finishes, the HTC One X9 uses a new technique to give it its fine texture. Tapping into the fashion world’s obsession with silver and gold, it comes in four colors – Carbon Grey, Opal Silver, Topaz Gold and Cooper Rose – making it the perfect accessory.

At just 75.9mm, its glass curved front and finely honed corners make it one of the most slender handsets in its class. A 5.5-inch full HD screen with personalized color mode and rich display not only delivers the optimal multimedia experience, but also means that it is a phone you are proud to show off and carry around.

The hugely popular HTC Dot View II case adds the final design touch to the HTC One X9, fully enabling the beauty of this phone to shine through.

“Elegant, stylish and ergonomic smartphone design is an essential element for consumers today”, said Chialin Chang, President of Sales, HTC. “At the same time, they don’t want to sacrifice performance or screen size, so striking the right balance between style and size was key for this new addition to the HTC One family. The HTC One X9 draws on rich colors and unique finishes, combining them with a lightweight, slender metal design and larger screen for those who want a premium smartphone experience.”

 

Capturing beauty from both behind and in front of the lens

Working tirelessly to deliver an unparalleled experience, the camera quality on the HTC One X9 is one of the best in its class. By precision engineering two cameras, one front and one back, and a selection of image-enhancing features, the HTC One X9 enables you to capture breathtaking shots every time and from every angle.

[adrotate banner=”4″]Combining the 13MP rear camera with its second-generation Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Real-time anti-shake functionality, and the front facing 5MP camera, with integrated Auto Selfie, Voice Selfie and Live Make Up, you can shoot clear, sharp, smooth images of the highest quality regardless of who is behind the lens.

RAW format’s one button enhancement feature automatically brightens colors and sharpens edges with one push, and other imaging tools commonly used by professional photographers such as Pro Mode and an advance manual control, add the finishing touches what is already one of the best cameras in its class.

And if photography is not your thing, video buffs will have their inner film director inspired by 4K video resolution and Hyperlapse mode which allows you to create dramatic time-lapse effects.

 

Sound good to you?

Never compromising on audio, and with the knowledge that most people listen to music on their smartphone, the HTC One X9 creates larger than life audio, delivered by HTC BoomSound with Dolby Surround. Integrated amplifiers bring out the best of your music and provide an even more dynamic range of sound.

 

Software to stand out: Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Premium smartphone hardware demands the best software to support performance and the HTC One X9 uses the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow features for the best user experience. Google Now on Tap intuitively provides information about whatever is on your screen by holding the home button. Google Backup for Apps automatically backs up app data it to all capable Android-powered devices.

 

HTC One X9 Availability

The HTC One X9 will begin rolling out in North Asia and EMEA at retailers and on htc.com, later in 2016.

HTC One A9 & Four Other Smartphones Revealed

Last night, HTC invited us to an exclusive Chinese New Year dinner, which also doubled as an official launch event. Their tagline for the event was “Ready to bring your A_ game?“.

They also cheekily presented marshmallows for those of us who are still licking our lollipops… No guesses for what operating system the new HTC smartphone will be running! 😀

Of course, anyone who has kept up on tech rumours would have known that HTC was going to launch the HTC One A9 smartphone. What we didn’t know was that they would also reveal another four HTC smartphones at the event as well!

Neither did we expect such fantastic entertainment from our fellow members of the media. Be sure to catch the video we took of our friends with hidden talents!

Just after the tossing of the yee sang for luck in the new year, the star of the event was “served” to us on a silver platter. Presenting the new HTC One A9!

Before we could get our hands on the new HTC smartphones, it was time for some fun and games. Check out this video we took of some talented members of the media in a dance-off contest!
