We were surprised to find that, during HTC’s big Mobile World Congress reveal, the manufacturer failed to mention anything about the oft rumored HTC One M9 Plus (aka HTC Hima Ultra). This was after the handset had been leaked numerous times, allegedly coming equipped with a MediaTek processor and fancy Samsung-like home button.
For all those anxious to get their hands on the HTC phablet, it seems it wont be much longer. According to @upleaks, he confirmed via his Twitter account today that the phone will allegedly launch towards the end of Q1 (late March), or the beginning of Q2 (early April). What’s more is the official launch name will be the One M9+, not “Plus.”
Rumored HTC One M9+ specs
- MediaTek MT6795 64-bit octa-core processor
- 5.2-inch WQHD display
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB internal storage
- Touch based finger print sensor (located on front)
- Android 5.0.2 with Sense 7.0
- 20.7MP + 2.1MP rear cameras (Duo Camera)
- 13MP front facing camera
- Bluetooth 4.1
- 2,840mAh Battery
Originally, @upleaks mentioned the EMEA/USA version was going to carry a Snapdragon processor, but had been cancelled. While it seems the M9+ is apparently now on for EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa), apparently it will still feature the same MediaTek processor as the Asian variant. Boo.
