HTC's Quad HD One M9+ and E9+ now available in the US via Amazon
While HTC made it pretty clear that it won't launch the One M9+ and One E9+ in the US, the two handsets are now available to buy from Amazon (as you may know, the giant retailer is often allowing US customers to order products that haven't been officially released Stateside).

Both the One E9+ and One M9+ (which are HTC's first Quad HD smartphones) run Android Lollipop and are offered unlocked. The latter is the most expensive among the two, costing $799.

You can get the One M9+ from Amazon in two color versions: gunmetal grey, and silver gold. Just like the One M9 that's officially available in the US (and in many other markets), the One M9+ is made out of metal. But it's larger than the regular One M9, as it sports a 5.2-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels. The One M9+ further features a fingerprint scanner, a 20 MP Duo rear camera, 4 MP UltraPixel front-facing camera, an octa-core MediaTek MT6795T processor, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of expandable storage space. The M9+ that Amazon is selling is compatible with the 3G networks of AT&T and T-Mobile, but doesn't work on Verizon and Sprint, and doesn't have US LTE.

The One E9+ is even larger than the M9+, having a 5.5-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels. However, the E9+ is made out of plastic, this being one of the reasons why it's cheaper: $499 (no US warranty, unfortunately). The One E9+ doesn't have a Duo rear camera, and neither a fingerprint scanner, but the rest of its features aren't too different from those of the M9+ (including support for the same 3G bands, but no US LTE).

So, is anyone tempted to buy the One M9+ or the One E9+?
