It looks like Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC is launching its One M9 flagship smartphone in India on April 14. The company has sent media invites for an event which will be held in New Delhi scheduled on the same date.
Originally the One M9 was unveiled during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the One (M9) features the same design as its predecessors, except that the display panel has thinner bezels and the metal body is now two-tone with the edges featuring a different colour tone.

HTC One (M9) flaunts a 5-inch Super LCD3 full-HD display (1920x1080p). Powered by a 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 64-bit octa-core processor and 3GB RAM, the phone offers 32GB storage and a microSD card slot that supports cards of up to 128GB storage.
The phone sports a 20MP rear camera (BSI, sapphire glass lens) and a 4MP Ultrapixel front camera with super-wide angle lens. HTC One (M9) runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense UI 7 running on top.
In line with previous rumours, the Sense 7 UI skin is not very different from its current avatar but now offers the ability to customize the UI theme with a source image and has a location-aware menu that changes app shortcuts depending on the user's location.
It also lets users select theme packs for app icons and the BlinkFeed home screen also offers meal time suggestions. There's also a new photo editor.
