HTC showcased its mid-range device, the One X9 Dual SIM, at the on-going Mobile World Congress 2016 (MWC 2016) in Barcelona, weeks after it was unveiled in China and a few other Asian countries.
HTC One X9 Dual SIM was announced in China in December last year and released into a select market in January. It comes in gunmetal grey and silver colours and is priced at ¥2399 (around $371/€338/Rs. 24,538).
The Taiwanese technology giant showcased the device at the MWC 2016, which can be taken as a hint that it is planning to sell the device in other markets too, but it didn't announce when it will be available in countries like the US and the UK. Popular leakster LlabTooFeR has recently tweeted that the device will be released in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) before the launch of the upcoming flagship smartphone dubbed as the One M10 aka Perfume.
