HTC One M9 gold version: new body art-inspired line; HTC releases new promos with Robert Downey Jr.


Following the Twitter reveal fiasco where the limited edition 24-karat gold-plated HTC One M9 accidentally provided positive publicity for its competitor Apple, new contests have been unveiled by HTC.

The first contest involves seven HTC One M9 smartphones with the signature of Robert Downey Jr. which will be given given away by the company. The contest, which will end on June 30 involves posting a social media item on what the user loves about the Robert Downey Jr. series and how his films have inspired the contest participant to create something new under the hash tag #HTCxRDJContest. The RDJ is a limited edition offer, reported the International Business Times

The HTC One M9 phone series features a nice 5-inch full HD display, 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB RAM, 20 MP rear camera, dual LED flash, 4 MP Ultrapixel front camera, Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, and the HTC Sense 7 UI. The range of colors apart from gold include gun metal grey, silver, rose gold, pink gold, and amber gold. The battery is pretty average compared to competitors at 2,840 mAh.

The launch of the phone was timed well with the Union of European Football Association’s Champions league, reported Christian Today.

Ecumenical News, on the other hand, reported the unveiling of HTC One M9 INK.

HTC, an official sponsor of the UEFA Champions, introduced the 24-carat gold limited edition and partnered with supermodel and their global ambassador Jourdan Dunn in launching HTC One M9 INK. The line features body art inspirations created by celebrity ink designer Cally-Jo. The limited edition line showcases symbols like an eye, hand, leaves, sun and moon which represent strength and sincerity, protection and positivity, creativity, balance and harmony.
