Purchase An Unlocked HTC One M9, Get A Free Desire 626 And $100 Google Play Credit

HTC could definitely use a boost when it comes to smartphone sales. The company that was once a shining star for the Android movement has been surpassed by flashier competitors like Samsung and budget Chinese rivals like Huawei and Xiaomi. To help gets some of its mojo back, HTC is offering up some holiday promotions to entice buyers to embrace its products.

One of the most attractive offers revolves around the company’s flagship One M9 smartphone. HTC is currently offering the smartphone for $649, which is its regular MSRP. That is by no means an eye-catching price, but the company is also giving away a Desire 626 smartphone, a $179.99 value, for free with your purchase. If you need a refresher, the specs for both smartphones are as follows:

HTC One M9

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor/3GB RAM
  • 32GB internal storage/microSD expansion up to 2TB
  • 5-inch 1080p display
  • 20MP rear camera/4MP front-facing camera
  • 2840mAh battery

HTC Desire 626

  • 16GB internal storage/microSD expansion up to 200GB
  • 5-inch 720p display
