HTC launches latest messaging phone in UAE

HTC Snap smartphone comes with a full QWERTY keyboard and costs AED 1,599

HTC launches latest messaging phone in UAE
HTC Snap comes with a retail price of AED 1,599

Taiwanese-based HTC Corp. has released its latest full-QWERTY smartphone in the Middle East that focuses on messaging and communication ease and directly competes with the Nokia E75 that was launched in February this year.

Available at all major retail stores in the country for AED 1,599, the HTC Snap comes with a number of productive features including remote synchronisation with email, calendar and contacts through the Microsoft Exchange server and an ‘Inner Circle’ key which, when pressed, brings emails from a pre-selected group of people to the top of their inbox so that important emails can be accessed first.

It is designed to deliver nearly nine of talk time on a single charge, but is only equipped with a 2 megapixel camera. In comparison, the E75 also comes with direct access to Microsoft Exchange but features a 3.2 megapixel camera and costs approximately AED 2,300.

“We are confident that the HTC Snap will be warmly welcomed in the Middle East markets, as the device represents the latest step in HTC’s mission to create a range of innovative smartphones, each with specific benefits designed to both surprise and delight our customers,” said Kevin Chen, GM, HTC Middle East and Africa and CIS.
