Once again, the HTC One M9+ is teased, showing April 8th unveiling date and that home button
On Thursday, we showed you some images of the HTC One M9+. Now, on Friday morning, we have a new series of HTC One M9+ promo shots for your pleasure. At least one of the photos confirm that the HTC One M9+ will be unveiled during HTC's "More than One" event taking place on Wednesday. We also expect to see the HTC One E9 and HTC One E9+ unveiled at the same event.

The new HTC One M9+ promo shots continue to confirm that the device will sport a home button. We've seen the button in other pictures of the model. The handset's fingerprint scanner is said to be embedded under it. The unit is rumored to offer a 5.2-inch 1440 x 2560 resolution screen, with the octa-core MediaTek MT6795 CPU under the hood. 3GB of RAM should be inside along with 32GB of native storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot will likely be available for those who need additional memory. A 20MP camera is believed to be on back with either a 13MP front-facing camera, or a 4MP Ultrapixel shooter in front.
 
Are you waiting to see if the HTC One M9+ is unveiled before deciding on your next phone purchase? If so, Wednesday is going to be quite an important day for you.


Thanks for the tip!

That home button. . . makes M9+ ugly.

It's not just ugly, it's unpractical. As a phone's footprint increases, the use of a physical home button becomes more and more difficult to reach+depress. The decisions they have been making the last few years, are completely outrageous.

I really want to see how HTC implementation this home button thing and where all navigation button.... If the rest of the navigation button is on screen then HTC have serious issues With design department.

i doubt this is a home button, i think its just a scanner. besides in sense 7 you can hide the navigation keys.

I know that they're slipping or whatever, but dude they'd be downright moronic to have a button at the bottom of the phone and use it solely for a fingerprint scanner. That said, I think HTC at this point is just giving Samsung sales.

I feel like if they'd at least got rid of that black bar, given that it's a bigger phone. Then the fingerprint scanner wouldn't have made the front of the phone look as unappealing as it does currently. Just seems like the bottom part of the phone is too clustered with things and designs.

They could have been the first who place the scanner to the side of the phone where most people hold their thumb... maybe in the resized on/off button...

Is it the button? Is it the design of the phone? There is something about this device that doesn't appeal to me.
