Watch HTC unveil the HTC One M9, Smart Watches and more

As surely as night follows day, HTC were going to follow their wildly successful HTC One (M8) with a newer version this year.

The M9 brings the same design that HTC has used for the last two years with some moderate changes and a reasonable bump in specs.

HTC also revealed their Smart Watch, a fitness tracking device (HTC Grip) in association with Under Armor and a VR headset (HTC Vive), produced in conjunction with game making legends Valve.

If you have an hour to spare, you can watch the entire conference here:

The HTC One (M9) will release globally in dual-tone silver and rose gold, single-tone gunmetal grey, single-tone gold and dual-tone gold and pink in from mid-March, and and will be available in Ireland shortly thereafter for €749 (off-contract). There is no word yet which networks will offer the handset and the subsidies to be offered.
