As Samsung’s Galaxy S6 made headlines yesterday, HTC jumped in to announce an early (unlocked-only) release for its long-hyped M9. The unlocked device will set you back $649.
Then Sprint said it will also let customers order the device today online and in-store — note: you won’t be able to pick up the M9 in-store today, but you can order it there. Similar announcements from T-Mobile and AT&T followed. But Verizon customers won’t be able to pre-order a subsidized device until April 1.
As for the M9’s international release, HTC simply says its flagship phone will launch abroad later this year.
