HTC One M9+ Launched with 5.2-inch Quad HD screen, Fingerprint Sensor and MediaTek SoC

Posted by:

HTC has declared a war on Samsung by launching a large screen sized version of its flagship One M9: HTC One M9+. The much-hyped device was announced in China at an event in Beijing.

The HTC One M9+, a large screen sized handset, is a beautiful phone that feels premium. The bumped-out rear camera and pretty much everything else about the HTC One M9+ is the same as the Samsung Galaxy S6 -- right down to the fingerprint-sensor home button.

What is HTC One M9+?

The HTC One M9+ offers a 5.2-inch Quad HD LCD display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 at 565ppi. The screen size is slightly bigger than the Samsung Galaxy S6's 5.1-inch Super AMOLED (2,560 x 1,440) display.

Under the hood is a 2.2GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6795T processor coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The HTC One M9+ also comes with a 20-megapixel Duo Camera on the rear back as well as an UltraPixel front facing selfie camera.

As usual, it also packs in HTC's award winning BoomSound speakers. The handset will come with Android 5.0 Lollipop with HTC Sense 7.0 UI over the top.

What's more, HTC has announced that that the fingerprint scanner will support Asia's AliPay for making payments. HTC says the new device will be available in silver and gold, gunmetal only and gold only variants.

As of now, the HTC One M9+ is restricted to the Chinese market.

Should You Buy it?

If you already own the HTC One M8, we'd say hold off a little while before upgrading to the HTC One M9+. While the display, new camera and processor is undoubtedly a step up, there's nothing essential here until your HTC One M8 starts to chug.
