Rumor: HTC One M9+ coming to EU in Q3

Rumor: HTC One M9+ coming to EU in Q3
A tweet from ROM developer @LlabTooFeR suggests that the HTC One M9+ will be made available to those in the EU ("Germany, Italy, Russia and some other Western/Eastern EU countries") starting next quarter. The developer has provided accurate information in the past regarding HTC. The HTC One M9 has been a major disappointment for the manufacturer and it is possible that the company feels that it can generate more sales by offering the higher-spec'd version of its flagship device in additional markets.

Unlike the HTC One M9, the HTC One M9+ features a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution on its 5.2-inch Super LCD 3 display. This works out to a pixel density of 565ppi compared to the 441ppi pixel density on the HTC One M9's 5-inch 1080 x 1920 screen. Another difference is found under the hood where the One M9's Snapdragon 810 SoC is replaced by the MediaTek MT6795T chipset. The latter contains a true octa-core 2.2GHz CPU and the PowerVR G6200 Rogue GPU. The HTC One M9+ comes with 3GB of RAM with 32GB of native storage (21GB is available to the user). On the One M9+, a 2TB capacity microSD slot is available while the capacity of the microSD slot on the One M9 is 128GB.

While both models share the same 4MP Ultrapixel front-facing camera, the HTC One M9+ has a 20MP duo camera set up on its back, offering the same depth-of-field options available with the HTC One (M8). On the other hand, the HTC One M9 offers a 20MP rear camera with no other sensors on back. Both models contain a 2840mAh battery and the HTC One M9+ has Android 5.0 and Sense 7.0 pre-installed.

Pricing for the HTC One M9+ could range between the current price of the phone in India ($756 USD) and its launch price in the same country ($827 USD). The good news for HTC's U.S. fans who have been screaming for the HTC One M9+ to be released in the states, is that back in April the company said that it would not sell the model in Europe or the U.S. If the rumor turns out to be true and the phone is offered in Europe, perhaps it will also be launched stateside as well.

Is the HTC One M9+ heading to Europe?

Phones from mainland China are far more cheaper (if not better)

IDK how to feel about this. Good move HTC??? IDEK... Just do what ever you can to get the profits up without alienating your profits. Who ever is in charge there needs to be shot with a brick cannon in the face repeatedly...

I don't know about this, HTC won't succeed with both of their current flagships that's for sure. We only have the One M9+ here in Malaysia, and it costs MYR 2599 (~$695) which costs the same as the S6 considering that HTC phones aren't popular in Malaysia either. Yeah, the price is with tax included of course, but even if without tax, it's still expensive. You think you're Samsung, HTC? With no advertising and some brainwashing, you can't shine here.

Too late htc too late. It's just sad that my favourite android OEM is slowly going to die and they have no idea what to do. Flooding market with so many high end phones is not a solution (m9,m9+,e9,e9+,butterfly 3 and so on -_-) They are just wasting their last remaining resources. I hope they will do something revolutionary with the m10 if no I'll just move to samsung apple or sony:)))

The HTC One M9+ is what people were waiting for this whole fu€king time and HTC is just now getting the clue, FU€K YOU HTC cause a lot wanted the HTC One M9+ and by the time it hits the U.S a lot of people will be buying a Note 5 or G4 so again FU€K YOU HTC! And don't be so stupid in the future if you're not taken over by another company like Asus, Samsung, Google, Apple or even Microsoft.

Well the M9+ would have been a perfection if it was equipped with a better SoC S810 would have been a better choice, or if they were afraid from the heat ot be unsolved in the future, they would have gone with the S808 instead of this piss poor MediaTek SoC .... :/

If the M9+ has the same crappy camera sensor on the back then there's no need to release it.

Well the fault in the camera is that it does not have OIS, and some amateur-ish processing. But i guess the sensor itself is not that awful. Camera processing can be amended via SW updates (like the recent 1.40 update) but the absence of OIS can not be compensated :(

So sad really as this should have been the flagship and possibly was until the whole 810 debacle. If I was HTC I would have done what LG did and go with the 808 SoC on this flagship and given the same story LG did. Then released it in the US. Now this is just a desperate move til their last shot Hero device lands in October. This is it now HTC has to come out swing like it did with the M7. If I was heading HTC's design department I would hire some of the Fans wo produced those amazing M9 renders. and work from there as the were obviously better then what their internal designers came up with.
