The critics are weighing in on HTC's latest-generation One M9, and the reactions are mixed. To be clear, all signs suggest that the HTC One M9 Plus will truly rival the Samsung Galaxy S6. In fact, some media reports suggest that HTC is keen to launch the device pretty soon in select Asian markets, including China.
HTC hasn't shared any details on the mysterious device yet, however, new renders have purportedly leaked the HTC One P9 Plus in full glory. Well, earlier it was speculated that the HTC One M9 Plus would be a large screen sized version of the company's latest flagship device - the One M9. But, it seems that the upcoming handset is an entirely different device, at least, from inside.
The image, leaked courtesy of famed tipster Onleaks, reveals the HTC One Plus next to the original HTC One M9. For beginners, the HTC One M9 Plus will have the dual camera set-up, just like the HTC One M8, which made its debut last year. There also appears to have a physical power button, which will work as a fingerprint scanner.
The HTC One M9 Plus does look bigger when compared to the HTC One M9. Just for comparison, the HTC One M8 has a 5-inch FHD display.
If reports are to be believed, the HTC One M9 Plus would come with a 5.2-inch QHD display, a 2.0GHz octa-core MediaTek processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage, the dual camera setup, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, a microSD card slot, and Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
While it's not clear when HTC plans to launch the device onto market, but it would happen in Q2. Meanwhile, HTC's current generation One M9 is expected to go on sale by next month.
