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.
