Trio of HTC One ME9 images leak out, give us a look at a semi-metal One M9+

Trio of HTC One ME9 images leak out, give us a look at a semi-metal One M9+
In years past, HTC has been rather tame with its release schedule as pertains to the higher end market, unlike some of its competitors. Starting with the HTC One M9, however, the company seems to be on path to executing a new plan that will have the Android pioneer release a number of very similar, high-end devices.

Currently, the head count sits at 4 — we have the One M9, the One M9+, the One E9+, and even an upper mid-range One M8s. Just recently, however, we started hearing of a One ME9, which, as the name suggests, blends cues from both the One M and One E lines. Like the aforementioned smartphones, the One ME9 looks like a very real device, and a trio of new images, courtesy of serial leakster @upleaks, seem to confirm this notion.

As mentioned, the ME9 looks like the perfect blend between the One E9+ and the One M9+. In other words, it's got the polycarbonate body and single, 20-megapixel camera of the former, and the metal frame of the latter. The rest of the specs are similarly alike to either of the two, including an octa-core, 64-bit MediaTek 6795T processor which runs at 2.2GHz and is paired with a PowerVR G6200 Rogue GPU. There are also 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage on board, either a 13-megapixel or  4-megapixel UltraPixel selfie camera, and even the fingerprint scanner of the M9+. It, too, supposedly sports a set of BoomSound with Dolby Soundspeakers up front, and has a 2,900 mAh Li-ion battery powering it.

According to @upleaks, the One ME9 will arive in three color options — Classic Rose Gold, Gold Sepia, and Meteor Gray — and will launch in July. Like the One M9+, however, the ME9 will apparently only retail in Asia, with India, Hong Kong, and Taiwan being the only seemingly confirmed regions so far. From what we're told, the One ME9 should cost about ¥3,500, or the equivalent of about $565.

Only HTC. All that bezel room and they still managed to screw up the placement of the finger print scanner. Lol
