HTC Said to Plan Better Camera Phone, Smartwatch for March

Updated on

HTC Corp. plans to unveil a marquee phone in March with improved camera and audio features, and its first smartwatch, according to a person familiar with the matter, as the Taiwanese company tries to stem three years of falling sales. Shares rose.

Code-named M9, the phone features a 20-megapixel rear camera and an HTC UltraPixel front camera, the person said, asking not to be identified because the details aren’t public. The smartwatch will link with Under Armour Inc.’s fitness service, building on a partnership announced earlier this month, the person said.
