HTC One M9 Plus leaks out: 5.5
Well, well, well, lookie what we have here. Leaks are flying from all sides about upcoming HTC phones about to be unveiled in a month or so at the MWC, and a tipster account with the apt name @leaksfly strikes again.

This time it is not about the HTC One M9 "Hima" flagship, but something even better, dubbed One M9 Plus. While it doesn't look like the Plus moniker will depict a phablet, with much larger display diagonal than the M9 Hima, certain design differences indicate that this might indeed be a more upscale version of the M9. The tipster pegs it as having a 5.5" QHD display, Snapdragon 810 chipset, 3 GB of RAM, dual camera kit, and a finger scanner.

Alternatively, this might be the M9 itself, and the leaks we saw this week might be just prototypes, though given the major differences in design this is a dubious possibility. First off, the M9 Plus doesn't sport the signature BoomSound stereo speakers top and bottom and the front, like on the M9 we saw the other day, but rather employs a home button with an alleged fingerprint scanner below the screen. Moreover, when turned around, the M9 Plus winks at us with a huge camera lens, hinting that we might indeed see a 20 MP shooter in the upcoming HTC flagship(s), but it also sports a secondary camera lens at the top, just like the Duo Camera setup on the One (M8)

Thus, we might have two versions of the M9 - one straight flagship with a smaller screen and a 20 MP shooter, and one with the refocusing dual camera shenanigans, and a fingerprint sensor to boot. How exactly will this pan out, remains to be seen, and we will be at the MWC to relay all those exciting details to you as they happen.

With those huge bezels, I hope you're right.

This thing would be the same size as a 6 plus if not bigger

What is that button at the bottom á la Samsung Galaxy? WTF?

This just sucks, really. Why they can't place the fingerprint scanner on the back like on their One Max? And they can use some technology from Huawei, to make the fingerprint scanning faster like on the Mate 7.

29. Diego! (Posts: 574; Member since: 15 Jun 2009)


I agree. That button sucks. It only works, somehow, but doesn´t please everybody, in Samsung Galaxy Models.

I hope this is a fake render because it screams uglyness all over it.

The phone looks like sh*t and that big ass camera on the back. Wow, it's ugly. Good specs, though.

Looks like HTC borrowed the home button from the S5 and the camera lens from the Nexus 5.

It really looks meh.

This isn't real.... The first and last picture don't even match. Leaksfly has lost all creditability from me. Not to mention that camera is horrible.

Is this a swipe finger-sensor? Like the crappy ones in Samsung devices?

3gb Ram, oppo9 offers better. Don't like the design. The M7 is much better.

Haha if that's any semblance of the new HTC phone, HTC is going to straight up drop off the maps. Now way in hell would I buy that. They just made the phone even longer for no damn reason. Looks so bad

Why the camera size is so big while the real sensor is like a dot in it

It's a bad photoshop: a note 4 home button, a nexus 5 lens and a Sony Xperia lens for the front camera...

And a galaxy s5 fingerprint scanner. I was wondering if I was the only one who noticed

FAKE!! It's a galaxy note 4 button photoshopped onto it. If you look carefully it is even level

I won't mind a 5.5" One Max M9 (eff Plus ;p) just not this one gtfoh w/ that home button (this is a fake clearly). Bigger batt if slightly thicker so what, less side bezels and just a decent cam replacement to that UltraPixel abomination and we're set. Probably some added IP rating as a bonus would be nice too.

It's a fake. The bottom speaker grill is missing (replaces by the clearly Samsung button.)
There is no way that HTC is willing to drop the amazing stereo BoomSound speakers for a home button.

This looks like a nexus 5 camera ps(ed) onto a m8 body with m7 type finish. it's fxxking ugly...
