HTC has gone high end crazy this year, launching an array of flagship quality devices that all really are just off-shoots of the One M9, none of them particularly inspiring but all very good handsets. The company has now unveiled the One ME that for all intents and purposes is a renamed One M9+, although the new smartphone is not made of metal like the M9+.That allows it to be more affordable in China (where it has launched), where it will cost under $500 unlocked. Indeed, the fact this is plastic makes it different to the current One M9 range and the devices associated with it and is typically the case with HTC the ME is elegant, although the overall design language the company uses could do with a little refresh. In terms of specs, the One ME matches the One M9+ with a 5.2-inch Quad HD screen, a fingerprint scanner, a 64-bit MediaTek Heilo X10 chip clocked at 2.2GHz, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a micro SD card slot, 2830mAh battery, BoomSound speakers, a 20 megapixel front camera and a 4 megapixel UltraPixel front facer. The device is available in gold, silver, and black; it will also launch in India for a more expensive $640.
