In March of this year, HTC revealed the One M9, the successor to the highly acclaimed M8, and a fantastic phone by itself. The company one-upped itself a month later with the launch of a larger, more pixel-dense version of the phone in the One M9+, but restricted sales to China, Taiwan and India. The new device now making its way to Europe, with general availability expected soon.
Packing a 2K (2560x1440p) screen and an octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor, the phone looks better and runs cooler than the Snapdragon 810-powered M9. MediaTek has been looking to break into the international market for some time now and this marked a huge victory for them. The 5.2-inch phone also features 3GB of RAM and 32GB or more of internal storage. The camera in the device is the same 20MP Toshiba module used in the M9 but, unlike the M9, it also features HTC depth-sensing Duo-cam, adding even more utility to how you snap your pictures. The battery and the front camera are also the same as with the previous model..
Coming in silver, grey and gold, the M9+ is expected to make its way to European shores soon; pricing and availability for individual countries will vary and will be revealed in due time.
Update: A HTC spokesperson has now clarified that the handset won't be making it to the UK. Sorry, Britons.
