HTC One M9 Plus mock-up picture shows us what the phone may look like next to the HTC One M9

Man, those HTC One M9 Plus leaks just keep on coming. Earlier today, we came across details regarding the phone's dimensions, and now, we're presented with a mock-up image depicting what the smartphone might look like next to its smaller sibling, the One M9. The image you see above comes courtesy of @OnLeaks, who, as some of you might remember, brought us those legitimate-looking Xperia Z4 renders, among other credible leaks.
This, however, is not an official image of the HTC One M9 Plus. As the leakster points out, this is just a mock-up which he made himself after seeing an actual One M9 Plus prototype. Looking at the image, we seem to have a confirmation that the phone sports a physical home button. Chances are the key includes a fingerprint scanner, most likely of the touch variety. As for the large, circular camera on the phone's back, it doesn't look pretty by any means. However, rumor has it that the One M9 had the same camera design while in prototype stage. The One M9 Plus could drop the circular camera design in favor of a rectangular one, much like what the One M9 did.
Speaking of which, we're not entirely sure if the HTC One M9 Plus will ever see the light of day. The phone may have been cancelled, according to rumors, or it may eventually launch in Asian markets under the Desire brand. Whatever the case is, we hope to witness an official announcement of the HTC One M9 Plus, or whatever its real name turns out to be, in the near future.

Not feeling her at all. HTC you need to be pimped slapped... Who ever is in charge is upsetting me. And I hope your terrible marketing comes to play here and you don't advertise this device! You should be ashamed of designing such a hideous phone! (As an HTC diehard, it pains me to say it...)

+492304832905923948230429 Also a diehard HTC fan but this is a result of Scott Croyle (previous head of design the one that designed all the One smartphones before the M9) leaving last year. Their designs are all over the place, they tried to take a solid base and just put s**t on it. Absolutely disgusting looking thing this is.

it's sad to see how apple started a new trend of making "plus" phones to milk their customers for even more profit. Now that samsung has their "even higher end" edge, HTC is making a "even higher end" M9 plus. Paying $650 no longer gives you the top of the line flagship phones as it did before To get real flagships you have to cough up another $100. This is basically a price increase for real flagship phones. Move along, nothing to see here, HTC doesn't give a damn about innovation and customers and they are in no position to do so. putting a woman in charge won't change that either.

definitely fake. why would you put a home button on there? the one max proved that if you needed a fingerprint scanner, the back of the phone is just fine. plus theres too much sharp edges around the back camera lens, if it was real, it would be a solid circle, not a hand-drawn looking circle. and how can you say the m9 camera sucks when you don't even own one? plus, if you dont have anything past the retina screen on the macbook pro, you can't tell if the pictures look good or bad. stop complaining. you'll still end up buying the phone anyway
