Yesterday we announced that we’ll be holding an evening of talks dedicated to the pursuit of creative brilliance, to mark the UK launch of the new HTC One M9 smartphone. Bringing together Nik Roope, Lucy McRae, Sam Jacob and HTC creative director Daniel Hundt, the evening will explore how, by striving for unrelenting excellence, creatives can move to the next level. It’s a fitting topic to launch the HTC One M9 as its combination of beauty, style and elegance with cutting-edge technology makes it a perfect example of uncompromising design brilliance.
“HTC has built its reputation on challenging expectations in the mobile industry,” said Cher Wang, Chairwoman, HTC. “The HTC One M9 accomplishes this once again, connecting you in a deeper way to the things you consider most important.”
First unveiled in Barcelona at the weekend, the HTC One M9 has been in development for three years and has already been hailed in many quarters for its stylish sensibilities. Distinct metal edges combine with graceful curves, while mirror-polished sides flow into hairline brushed silver back panel. Available in dual-tone silver and rose gold, single-tone gunmetal grey and single-tone gold, it goes on sale from 31 March.
Designed as brilliantly inside as out, the tech spec is mighty impressive too, and the latest Sense 7 operating system allows you to customise every aspect, It boasts a 20 megapixel camera which can also shoot movies in 4k resolution, and the front-facing UltraPixel™ technology delivers 300% more light than a standard camera. The HTC’s EYE™ Experience software offers a suite of editing effects to put those perfect finishing touches on your pictures, and the HTC BoomSound™ speakers are now combined with 5.1 channel Dolby® surround sound.
The Pursuit Of Brilliance featuring Nik Roope, Lucy McRae, Sam Jacob and Daniel Hundt takes place at the Protein Space in Shoreditch on Wednesday 18 March. Tickets are free and can be reserved at the Eventbrite page here or using the widget below.
