While most of our collective attention has been focused on HTC's new flagship, the One M9 (which we reviewed already), another device from the manufacturer may prove just as interesting – the One M9 Plus. From what we know so far, the M9 Plus will be a larger version of the M9, with a Quad HD display and a fingerprint scanner in tow.
@OnLeaks shot a quick tweet on his Twitter handle, outlining two important details about the M9 Plus – display size and body measurements.Leaks and rumors concerning the M9 Plus are sporadic at best, giving us that weird feeling that its fate is not yet decided, though that's not for lack of such. Just today, for example, leak authority
According to the source, those 1440 x 2560 pixels will be spread out over 5.2 inches of screen real estate, potentially giving the M9 Plus a pixel density of 565 ppi. As for size, the One M9 Plus will stay true to HTC's design philosophy, with an imposing body that measures 5.94 x 2.85 x 0.4 inches (150.9 x 72.5 x 10.15 mm). Despite identical display sizes, this would make the HTC One M9 Plus quite a bit larger than the Sony Xperia Z3, so no surprises there.
The rest of the specs we've gathered so far (which are in no way confirmed, mind you) include the likes of an octa-core Snapdragon/MediaTek chipset powering the thing, depending on region, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 20.7-megapixel camera (possibly with a 2.1-megapixel sidekick alike to the One M8), a 4-megapixel front-facing selfie cam, and a 2,840 mAh cell.
