Live images of the HTC One M9 Plus crop up again, confirm specs
posted by Chris P. / Mar 25, 2015, 5:10 AM
This time around, we have something a bit more legit-looking, for the duo of live images also show a China Mobile logotype etched on the back of the alleged One M9 Plus. This could, of course, be an elaborate fake, but the information does match what we know so far – that HTC will be mainly targeting Asian markets with the phone.
Design-wise, the One M9 Plus reminds us a whole lot of the One M8 due to its Duo Camera setup at the rear, used for depth-of-field effects. Up at the front, however, we have something completely different – a physical Home button that literally splits the traditional bottom BoomSound speaker in two. This one has been suggested to double up as a fingerprint scanner.
As for specs, from what we're seeing, previous information suggesting an octa-core MediaTek MT6795T processor (at least for Asian markets) and 3GB of RAM has been confirmed via an AnTuTu pane seen in the third image below. The report card also reveals a 20.1-megapixel camera, 32GB of internal storage, and Android 5.0 Lollipop, almost certainly with the newest Sense 7.0 layout on top.
More as we get it!

To be fair though, the M9 is really brought down mainly by the SD810. I'd hoped for a refreshed design but arguably they still have the best design overall. It will be best to skip out on anything with the SD810 though.

After what HTC presented us this year, dun expect people to trust their PR department or what their execs tell you anymore. All that crap about 2015 being a fantastic year with wonderfully superb handsets in the pipeline? Similar to last year, again HTC is all just hype but nothing. The more they hype and brag, the bigger the disappointment. This M9 Plus just looks so BORING with the same old design slapped with a Samsung Note 4 home button ?! HTC pls dun kid yourselves and keep thinking ur the so-called 'Rolex" of the mobile world please. Such uninspiring designs, along with lousy marketing and advertising. Marketing to nerds and alienating your female base brings you terrible sales. No point changing your CEO when your entire marketing and mobile team should be fired!

HTC Home button is a fingerprint scanner. Will soon be able to see invisible fingerprint scanner under home-key LG, Samsung, Apple and Hauwei full-screen fingerprint recognition will also be able to see if the end of this year or next year. As early as at the end of the year will see LG Note.

as others have already stated, this thing is really odd and ugly looking. the speakers r misaligned and all look out of place. if they were so set on a physical button i wish they would've put the speakers at the very top and bottom like this concept picture, http://www.technobuffalo.com/w
for the top, move the front camera to the middle below the speaker and for the bottom, move the home button above the speaker. i'd take thinner/smaller speakers and a slightly longer phone over this mismatched, mishaped monstrosity they call the m9 plus.
2015 is not going to be a good year for htc.

It's starting to look more & more like this might actually be the real deal. If so, what the hell is HTC thinking? This is beyond bad. A return to the duo camera & an oddly placed home button (more than likely for a fingerprint scanner)? They can't figure out what they want to do.

If they are going to split the boomsound speakers on the bottom, why dont they split it at the top and put the 13mp camera+flash in the middle. They could have also went back to capacitive buttons for back and multitask just like on the M7. The duo camera and round camera also ruined the back. Square matched the square look.
