Live images of the HTC One M9 Plus crop up again, confirm specs
While the HTC One M9 Plus (or M9+, as some sources insist) isn't yet a market reality, our expectation is that the company is prepping an announcement, and it has a date in mind that will be upon us sooner rather than later. A whole bunch of renders, dummies, and even supposed prototypes have leaked already, and today we add two more to the mix.
This time around, we have something a bit more legit-looking, for the duo of live images also show a China Mobile logotype etched on the back of the alleged One M9 Plus. This could, of course, be an elaborate fake, but the information does match what we know so far – that HTC will be mainly targeting Asian markets with the phone.
Design-wise, the One M9 Plus reminds us a whole lot of the One M8 due to its Duo Camera setup at the rear, used for depth-of-field effects. Up at the front, however, we have something completely different – a physical Home button that literally splits the traditional bottom BoomSound speaker in two. This one has been suggested to double up as a fingerprint scanner.
As for specs, from what we're seeing, previous information suggesting an octa-core MediaTek MT6795T processor (at least for Asian markets) and 3GB of RAM has been confirmed via an AnTuTu pane seen in the third image below. The report card also reveals a 20.1-megapixel camera, 32GB of internal storage, and Android 5.0 Lollipop, almost certainly with the newest Sense 7.0 layout on top.
More as we get it!
