Dutch online retailer to launch the HTC One M9+ in Europe on July 14th, priced at $850 USD
A Dutch online retailer has announced (by putting up a listing) that it is selling the unlocked HTC One M9+ for the equivalent of $850 USD, starting on July 14th. Originally, HTC had said that it would not be offering the premium version of its flagship device in Europe and the U.S. Now that consumers in certain European countries are being given the opportunity to buy the device, the big question is whether U.S. phone buyers will be given  the same chance.

Some consumers in the states have been hoping that HTC would bring the One M9+ to the market. The differences between the latter and the currently available One M9 include the larger and higher resolution 5.2-inch 1440 x 2560 display found on the premium model. In addition, the One M9+ is powered by a MediaTek MT-6795T SoC, which contains a true octa-core 2.2GHz CPU and the PowerVR G6200 Rogue GPU. One other change can be found on the back where HTC has brought back the dual camera set up, allowing users to play around with various effects. The HTC One M9+ also comes with a fingerprint scanner, a feature not found on the HTC One M9.

The HTC One M9+ will be offered by the Dutch online retailer in grey, although there are two other color options available in China (gold and silver-gold). Does HTC feel desperate enough to bring this high-spec'd handset to the U.S.? Most likely the company will try to wait it out until October when a re-designed "hero" phone is expected to be unveiled.

Thanks for the tip!
