HTC's website confirms that its new flagship is the HTC One M9, not HTC One (M9)
Earlier this weekend, we told you that HTC's new flagship model would be the HTC One M9, not the HTC One (M9). We also mentioned that the company would use the slogan "One Life" on its promotional material. Today, we got confirmation of this directly from HTC's own website. In the source code of the website is a line for "product title" which is followed with the HTC One M9 name, exactly as written. Immediately following that is the line "product tagline" which is followed by "One Life".

The HTC One M9 is expected to be launched on March 1st at MWC in Barcelona. The latest rumored specs show a device equipped with a 5-inch display, carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920. Under the hood is a 64-bit 2GHz Snapdragon 810 CPU. 3GB of DDR4 RAM is on board and the phone will come with 32GB or 64GB of native storage. One of the biggest changes when compared to the current flagship model will be on back where a 20.7MP camera will be placed. The 4MP Ultrapixel camera that was on back will be moved to the front. The battery will get a little bump to 2840mAh and HTC's Sense 7.0 will run on top of Android 5.0.2.

Of course, there has been a lot of talk about the resolution of the display with some expecting a 1080 x 1920 display and others looking for HTC to make the move to a 1440 x 2560 QHD display. On the other hand, the latter resolution might be reserved for the HTC One M9 Plus. All will be known in a couple of weeks, so stay tuned!

Is the M9 Plus a phablet? Cuz I'm looking for a phablet this time. Hope it has 6 inch screen or below.

I also hope M9plus will be 6" but last rumours I saw pegged it at only 5.2" which isn't much of a significant increase over the M9's 5"

There is no way the M9+is going to 5.2" no modern company is going to make 2 models of the same phone with a .2" difference. I am desperately hoping the M9+ will be 6" but I would deal with it if it was 5.5"

I completely agree. Would make absolutely no sense for them to make a plus version of only .2" difference just to give people a Quad HD variant.... at least my business state of mind would like to think so.
Note and S series, Iphone 6 and 6+, Mi Pro and Mi series, Sony Z and Z Compact series (Hell, throw in Z Ultra, if you'd like). HTC needs their phablet for larger screen enthusiasts, and their 5'-5'2" sized phone for those who prefer smaller screen.
I'm with you hitman. I hope they have a 5.5" inches variant - as I tend to prefer larger screen.

No. the rumours have the M9 Max/Plus/Ultra pegged at 5.5". Get caught up on your rumours.

The 1080p display will do wonders for battery life and performance. Good going HTC

Hope this performs similar to m8 in low light photography if not better than that,then it's a instant buy for me.

Right now, im concern about it's thickness, whether got the same thickness as the previous m8 or thinner. Hmmm

A rose by any other name will smell just as foul if the camera isn't improved. I hope to see the rumors come true, as well as band 12 support.

In a previous article, they said they will change the name as One Mx is not appealing and now it will still be called One M9?? I would prefer something like HTC Phantom/Ghost since it's like the Rolls Royce of Android!
