Well, that didn’t take too long. HTC’s flagship for 2015 already has a variant coming up, and it’s superior in a couple of features. As such, it’s aptly called the HTC One M9+.

So instead of 1080p display of the M9, the HTC One M9+ boasts a larger display at 5.2 inches diagonally and with better resolution at 1440p. And instead of employing a Snapdragon chip, the M9+ takes advantage of the Helio X10 processor by MediaTek. Using a different system-on-a-chip also changes the graphics component: there’s now a PowerVR G6200 instead of Adreno 430.

HTC One M9+ Specs

  • Android 5.0 Lollipop (Sense UI)
  • 5.2-inch IPS LCD (1440×2560 Quad HD), ~565ppi
  • 2.2GHz 64-bit octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 MT6795T processor
  • PowerVR G6200 GPU
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB internal storage
  • microSD support up to 128GB
  • 20-megapixel main camera, with autofocus and LED flash
  • Secondary rear-facing camera
  • UltraPixel front camera
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
  • 3G HSPA+, 4G LTE

Another notable improvement is the main camera. In fact, there are two cameras at the back. The home button also acts like a fingerprint sensor for quick and secure unlocking of the phone and for confirmation in payment systems.

Iconic features of the original M9 are present: BoomSound, all-metal design and the Sense UI.

The HTC One M9+ will be available in three colors: amber gold, gunmetal gray, and silver gold. It’s first headed to China, and the company hasn’t revealed any information regarding pricing and global market expansion.
