HTC One M9+ with 5.2" QHD screen, duo camera unveiled

08 April, 2015

Since the MWC 2015, HTC has been caught in the whirlwind of rumors and badly kept secrets about the One M9+ as well as the two One E9 variants. Today the Taiwanese handset market has formally launched the new One M9+ at a press event held in Beijing, China.

The One M9+ features a 5.2 QHD (1440 x2560 pixels) display and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with HTC Sense 7 on top of it. It packs 32GB built-in storage and has a 20MP rear f/2.2 camera with secondary lens on the top for depth-sensing. For the selfie enthusiasts, there is a UltraPixel camera in the front.

One major highlight of this smartphone is the 2.2GHz MediaTek MT6795T chipset armed with an octa-core CPU and 3GB RAM.

HTC BoomSound speakers with Dolby Surround sound support come on the front along with a home button like fingerprint sensor integrating support for the AliPay payment system in China. There is no clarity on whether the One M9+ if sold outside China will bear fingerprint sensor.

By default, the One M9+ offers a 2840 mAh battery to power the smartphone. HTC will introduce the phone in three color options - Gunmetal grey, Amber Gold, and Silver Gold color options.
