We wondered how long this would take. HTC has launched its One M9+ in Europe, the device is a super version of the regular One M9 flagship and the company said when it launched that the Plus would not arrive in Europe or indeed the USA. However, disastrous sales of the One M9 proper have meant the company needs to do something to rejuvenate interest in its flagship line, and as such we would not be surprised to see the One M9+ come to the United States in due course as well.
"The One M9+ is not currently planned to be released in North America or Europe, where we believe our flagship HTC One M9 is the best choice for blazing fast performance, incredible sound, and network compatibility across the broadest range of operators." ? HTC, post One M9+ launch
At least customers in Europe can now get the HTC device we all should have had from the start, the most decked out smartphone the company has ever made. With the M9 Plus HTC is attempting to differentiate with the inclusion of a MediaTek processor instead of Qualcomm's problematical Snapdragon 810. Other difference compared to the normal One M9 are the inclusion of a Quad HD screen and fingerprint scanner. Here is a quick glance at the key HTC One M9 Plus specs: Android 5.0 Lollipop with HTC 'China Sense' Dimensions: 150.99 x 71.99 x 9.61mm 5.2-inch LCD display with 1440 x 2560-pixel (Quad HD) resolution MediaTek MT6795T octa-core chip clocked at up to 2.2GHz 3GB of RAM 32GB of internal storage 20MP main camera, 'UltraPixel' front cam
