HTC has cleared that its latest flagship smartphone – the One M9 – will be first release in its home country, Taiwan. The smartphone will be launched there on the March 16, early next week, and should reach globally after that.
The company has confirmed that there are two One M9 variants – one is carrying 64GB in-built storage, and other comes with 32GB. Sadly, it is uncertain, if the high storage model will be available globally. Regardless, both have expandable memory via microSD card support, so storage should not be a trouble.
