Last month saw Taiwanese manufacturer launch the HTC One M9 at MWC.
Not one for resting on their laurels, HTC have already followed up with a larger and much improved handset in the shape of the M9 Plus at a special event held in Beijing. This new device offers a larger screen, coming in at around 5.2 inches, along with a vastly improved 1440×2560 pixel QHD resolution and of course, the all important finger print scanner for those who don’t want the hassle of codes or shapes.
Measuring in at 5.94 x 2.83 x 0.38 inches, the M9 Plus is taller and wider than its predecessor while still maintaining the same thickness. While the M9 Plus is sticking with 3GB of RAM, it’s has had a change of processor, boasting a new MediaTek MT6795T octa-core 2.2GHz chip.
With that in mind, this is certainly looking like a premium upgrade compared to the standard HTC One M9, even the camera has had somewhat of a change. Opting for the duo camera which was popular with the previous HTC One M8 handset.
It’s not all good news at the moment however as this is currently a China exclusive handset. HTC says that Android 5.0 Lollipop with HTC China Sense is going to be running on board the phone. The inclusion of China sense and given that the announcement was made in Beijing, its clear the market this is aimed at.
Set to be available in gold, gun-metal grey and a silver/gold combo we’re hoping to see this reach western shores soon!
