HTC sus­pends sale of One M9+ phone in Nether­lands

The China Post - - TAIWAN BUSINESS -

Tai­wan’s HTC Corp. ( ) said Wed­nes­day it has tem­po­rar­ily halted sales of the big­ger ver­sion of its One M9 flag­ship phone in the Nether­lands as the com­pany is in­ves­ti­gat­ing prob­lems with the de­vice that are re­port­edly linked to 4G LTE con­nec­tiv­ity.

“HTC puts the qual­ity of its prod­ucts and pro­vid­ing an op­ti­mal user ex­pe­ri­ence first. We are cur­rently in­ves­ti­gat­ing re­ported prob­lems with the HTC One M9+ in the Nether­lands, and the de­vice has been tem­po­rar­ily with­drawn from sale in the mean­time,” the hand­set maker told CNA in an emailed state­ment.

Cit­ing a source fa­mil­iar with the mat­ter, tech news site Phone Arena re­ported Tues­day that HTC re­quested the Phone House chain in the Nether­lands to sus­pend sales of the One M9+ and promised to re­lease a soft­ware up­date to fix the prob­lem be­fore it goes back on sale.

The HTC state­ment is­sued on Wed­nes­day means the di­rec­tive also ap­plied to other chan­nels in the Nether­lands.

The HTC One M9+ hit re­tail stores in the Nether­lands in midJuly at around US$850. Its ma­jor en­hance­ments in­clude a 5.2-inch 2K dis­play with a res­o­lu­tion of 1440 x 2560 pix­els, a Me­di­aTek MT6795T octa-core 2.2GHz mo­bile pro­ces­sor, a fin­ger­print scan­ner built into a home but­ton on the front, a new-and-im­proved Duo Cam­era and sup­port for up to 2TB of mi­cro-SD ex­ter­nal stor­age.
