Body & Display

Let’s get this out the way at the start – the design is one amazing part of the HTC One S9, it features an aluminum body and measures 144.6 x 69.7 x 10.1 mm almost precisely the same as the One M9 and weighs 158 g. The display, on the other hand, is a 5.0-inch (1080 x 1920 pixels) Full HD Super LCD unit with 441 ppi pixel density and protected with Gorilla Glass on top.

Camera

The camera department of the HTC One S9 crams in a 13MP primary camera on the back, not the One M9’s 21MP shooter. Looking at the camera features like the f/2.0 aperture, 28mm equivalent focal length, and OIS, it looks like a set up of HTC One A9. The front-facing camera is 4MP, 2 μm pixels, f/2.0 aperture, 26.8mm equivalent focal length.

Operating System & Performance

Inside, there’s a powering 64-bit Octa-Core MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795T) processor clocking 2GHZ and runs on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) laced with HTC Sense UI on top. On the hardware front you’re also getting BoomSound speakers, and the proper kind too – stereo.

The phone comes with 16 GB of inbuilt storage, 9.24GB available to the user, HTC says. But can be expandable up to 200 GB through the hybrid dual-SIM slot thoughthe company claims its support up to 2TB.
