Latest images of HTC One M9+ leak; HTC to unveil premium model tomorrow
A tweet sent out today from @upleaks shows off some new images of the HTC One M9+. The phone is expected to be unveiled tomorrow during a media event to be held in China. The press images show the phone in two tone silver/gold and gold. The handset is expected to feature a 5.2-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. A 64-bit octa-core MediaTek MT6795 CPU is under the hood with the PowerVR G6200 Rogue GPU handling graphics. 3GB of RAM is on board with 32GB of native storage inside (23GB is actually available to the user). A 20MP camera is expected on back with a 13MP front-facing camera in front for selfies and video chat. There is a fingerprint scanner (which looks like a Home button) believed to be on the bottom front of the device, and Sense 7.0 runs on top of Android 5.0.

With HTC taking the wraps off of the phone tomorrow, we are waiting to hear a few important things. One is the price. The One M9+ will certainly be priced higher than the HTC One M9. Another piece of information that we are waiting for is the launch date. And perhaps the most important thing we want to know is where the HTC One M9+ will be available.

There has been talk that the device will be released only in Asia. On the other hand, there has been speculation that a version running the Snapdragon 810 SoC would be sold in the U.S. We should know all of these answers and more, tomorrow.

Each phone is unique, and thats where HTC excels where others don't.

No it'd be more stupid with a dedicated Home button like you know who

I swear the design is so stupid... I don't even understand. If your gonna do that what's the point of the on screen buttons? And Omg can someone tell them to remove that stupid bar with their logo! Omg they worse then Verizon, putting logo's in stupid spots. If you gonna do that at least shorten the bezels....ALOT.

My self, having phone dropping issues, recently used a HTC DNA, having the extra bezel border at the bottom of the phone raised the screen to where your thumbs would naturally be when typing. This is most evident when I activated a Galaxy S4, and have issue sometimes when typing. The space bar and keyboard placement seem a little out of reach and sometimes annoying and unnatural having to reach toward the bottom of the phone. I agree that we can all do with out extra bezels, but this does seem functional. They should have added captive touch buttons where it says 'HTC' and maximize the screen and use the space more efficiently. This makes for a bigger phone, and the Screen to body ratio smaller, but it is functional.

I understand that but HTC needs to let this design die.

Because it's not a home button. It is a fingerprint caner only. The bezels have been shorten dumbass. And they are there because their is components used for powering the display and speakers behind them.

Calls someone a dumbass; proceeds to use the incorrect version of "there." Priceless.

He also misspelled "scanner", "shortened" and should have said "are" instead of "is". I think he just proved that he's the dumb ass.

PAUSE. 1. Correct your spelling. 2. "there because their is components used for powering the display and speakers behind them." Dude, are you stupid? Look at the Moto X 2014, Nexus 6, Moto G, and lets not forget the LG G3! You don't need all that bezel, I rather have a thick phone then all that bezel. Look at the One M8 and M9 and you would think it was a 5.5inch screen, EVEN IF YOU TAKE OFF THE SPEAKERS.

This is a goof looking phone but that nonehomebutton needs to die... In fact, I'm gonna make concept art for HTC, post it on IG and pray that HTC quietly implements it next year LOLOL.

I'd be interested in trying out the Mediatek version.

Wow... It looks like there's a good 2 inches from the bottom before you actually get to the screen. The distance between the unlock and the on screen buttons is just plain strange.

And tomorrow Ill be laughing my butt off when HTC does like last year and announces the E9 a cheaper alternative to the M9 & the M9 for windows after all these people have been hyped up for another flagship phone when their first flagship for the year has not even made it out of the gates yet......

should be called HTC BEZELLA


Posts: 334; Member since: Mar 24, 2015

should have gone with capacitive buttons like on the M7 and make the fingerprint scanner a functional home button.

not feeling this phone...HTC had the chance to impress the crowd and they blew it. And now they are trying to impress, but renders coming out are not making things any better.

I wish it would have been a proper One Max successor... a 5.7" - 6.0" screen (1080p or 1440p, doesn't matter to me) with even larger, bass-heavy speakers would have been really cool in my opinion. Also, if they had taken out the fingerprint scanner and used the Desire EYE design language (but in aluminum), I think customers would react much better. Oh well... looks for all the world like this 5.2" weirdo is all we got this year... :/

I don't get the thinner bezel the better. There comes a point when it really has little value other than aesthetics. My note 4 has as thin bezels as I would want tbh. I like the look of this phone if I'm being honest.

By now, I have lost hope in this phone. The design language is already stagnant, and this thing is gonna be overpriced, thats for sure.
