As expected, HTC hosted an event in Beijing today to introduce the One M9+ that is a bigger variant of the firm’s flagship One M9. It is almost identical to the One M9 with an elegant unibody metal design, but there are differentiating aspects such as Duo Camera arrangement and a fingerprint sensor embedded in its home button.
The One M9+ runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop layered with HTC Sense 7 that brings the ability to create personalized themes with HTC Themes, BlinkFeed and other features. The handset boasts of a 5.2 inch LCD display with a Quad HD or 2K resolution of 2560×1440 pixels that will render an immersive viewing experience.
When it comes to raw hardware, the HTC One M9+ is energized by a 2.2 GHz octa core MediaTek MT6795T chipset backed by 3 GB of RAM. The handset bundles 32 GB of native memory space as well onboard.
The One M9+ is given a 20 MP Duo Camera main snapper that will provide a great level of details and there is a front facing UltraPixel selfie shooter with features such as dynamic auto-exposure that can render sharper and more balanced snaps without any concern on the ambient lighting conditions.
The highlight of the One M9+ is the new fingerprint sensor that is located at the front of the device. Users of the device can unlock the One M9+ by placing their finger on the sensor in any direction. Furthermore, the latest smartphone from HTC also has dual front facing BoomSound speakers with 5.1 channel Dolby Audio surround sound simulation rendering high quality listening experience.
The HTC One M9+ is available in three color options – Silver with Gold frame, Gunmetal Grey and Gold.
Unfortunately the One M9+ has been launched only for the Chinese market and there is no word regarding its global availability.
