HTC will release its One M9+ flagship in Europe after all. The company has announced plans to bring the handset to new territories, having initially launched it in China.
The One M9+ builds on the top–end M9, which was revealed by HTC at the start of this year. Its screen is a tad larger at 5.2–inches, with 2K resolution.
There’s also Android 5.1 on board and an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2Ghz. The latter is made by MediaTek rather than Qualcomm.
The camera remains the same, impressive 20-megapixel effort, although users can also play around with the ‘duo camera’ feature which was a key part of 2014’s HTC One M8 but was ditched when that device was updated.
The design is much the same as before, with the premium, brush-metal feel that has won HTC plaudits.
However, it doesn’t appear to add so much that you’d consider ditching your M8 or M9 in favour for it. Rather, it’s a tweak for those sitting on the fence and deciding which device to upgrade to.
There’s no word on a launch date or cost, but expect the One M9+ to be priced on the high side when it does eventually make it into shops.
