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!

haha, they're about to fill for bankruptcy and still try to charge over 750 euros for a lackluster phone with lame camera, lame processor and even worse UI here's a tip HTC, if you want to gain some customers just price it around 500-550 euros and maybe, just maybe, you can sell some

You're asking $850 for a phone with crappy processor? Sorry but you're no Apple. Only Apple can overprice their crappy products. RIP HTC.

Really HTC ? I thought your overpricing is limited to India and other asian countries. Who will buy this phone for 850$ when they can get a 64GB Galaxy S6 at a lower price. Apart from a fluid UI, finger print sensor and Boom sound speakers there is nothing good about this phone. Bad camera, unreliable chipset and possibly bad battery life. Also QHD screens on HTC phones will not woo anyone. HTC is not master of display technology. They are not Sammy or LG. Not even good with calibration like apple. Sad to say this == HTC R.I.P......
