More alleged HTC One M9 Plus photos show up, physical home button visible
Earlier today, we showed you two photos that allegedly present a black version of the unannounced HTC One M9 Plus (which we were expecting to see at MWC 2015 alongside the One M9). Now, we can take a look at two more images, coming from the same Chinese source, this time seemingly showing a silver/gold variant of the M9 Plus.

If this is indeed the real One M9 Plus, it appears that HTC has equipped it with a physical home button which, if previous rumors are to be believed, should include a fingerprint scanner. Other than that, the front of the alleged M9 Plus doesn't look too different from the front of the One M9, hosting BoomSound speakers, and what seems to be a pretty big camera. However, it's said that the M9 Plus will sport a Quad HD display instead of the 1080p panel that the One M9 is offering.

It's not clear if the One M9 Plus is the same device as the previously leaked HTC A55. According to @upleaks, the A55 could be launched as the HTC One E9 in China (though we also heard that it might be released as a Desire smartphone). Hopefully, HTC will soon announce these new smartphones (or this new smartphone, if it turns out to be just one) so we can put all the rumors and speculations to rest.

Really not sure about the back camera design. But that's nitpicking. Whether it comes with a 1080p screen or quad this is definitely a big screen entertainment phone.

Well its not like Apple/Samsung invented the home button
What i dont like in the current hTc phones is the extra bottom bezel where the company logo is stamped. Just too much bottom bezel

It's the first year since I started to hear about HTC (HTC hero and all...) that I don't like their flagship designs. They just look old and uninspired :(

If it has a home button, where's the back and multitask?

the home button is suppose to be for the fingerprint scanner so the back and multi button could still be on screen

They did when they were churning out good looking phones.

The M9 however was a rehashed M8 with a better camera, and this thing with the home button just looks plain weird.

It looks great, but they really need to do something about that camera.

Can't do much about that button can U? Why don't you come up with a good well fitting button for the device. Ppl even call out for button designs. Oh look same volume up and down buttons.

It looks odd. Literally like someone expertly photoshoped the Samsung galaxy button onto a m8.

If i am given a choice, i will choose the fingerprint scanner at the back like the one with Ascend Mate 7. It might make the phone looks ugly for some (including me) if it sits on front.
