Shoot like a pro
The camera on the HTC One X9 is one of the best in its class, enabling superior imaging both day and night. Through the precision engineering of its two cameras, as well as a selection of image-enhancing features, the device allows you to capture breathtaking shots from any angle.

The front facing 5MP camera includes integrated Auto Selfie, Voice Selfie and Live Make Up capability, delivering high-quality selfies with ease.
To add that professional touch to your pictures, RAW format’s one button enhancement feature automatically brightens colours and sharpens edges with one push. Additional imaging tools such as Pro Mode and an advance manual control add the finishing touches to what is already one of the best cameras in its class.
