HTC today announced the One ME smartphone for the Chinese market, following the launch of the One M9+ and E9+ for the country.
The One ME is an outright flagship with a 5.2-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440p) display, an octa-core MediaTek processor — the Helio X10 — and 3GB of RAM. The phone carries the acclaimed design of the One series, and bundles almost every other goodie that HTC have on offer into one single, high-end package.
It also features a 20 mega-pixel main camera with dual LED flash, with a 4 mega-pixel UltraPixel front snapper. The One ME does feature expandable storage as well as dual SIM, and features 32GB of on-board ROM.

The device sits somewhere between the One M9 and the E9, with neither a full plastic nor a complete metal body. It features a metal chassis with a polycarbonate body, which one would imagine is the best of both world’s — at least as far as the makers are concerned.
5.2-inch is the new 5-inch, and HTC (along with a few other biggies) seem to be betting on that. Coming back to the One ME, it ship with Sense 7 UI running on top of Android 5.0 Lollipop, with available colour variants being Meteor Gray, Rose Gold, and Gold Sepia.
