Off all the imminent Android powerhouses, one of the phones we’re most looking forward to is the HTC One M9 Plus (aka Hima Ultra).
Essentially it’s an even beastlier version of the HTC One M9 (Hima), and we’re told One M9 Plus specs might include an entirely reasonable 5.2in display, not the previously rumoured 5.5in. Interdasting.
We’re looking at a fairly concise post by upleaks, which spills a ton of HTC One M9 Plus specs, adding only that there’ll be two variants: one Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, one MediaTek.
Further HTC One M9 Plus specs include (supposedly) a 5.2in QHD display, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage (expandable, presumably), front fingerprint scanner, LTE Cat 6 support, Android Lollipop with Sense 7.0, “20.7MP + 2.1MP” rear camera, “4MP or 13MP” front camera, front BoomSound stereo speakers, and a 2,840mAh battery. Phew!
Again, arguably the most interesting point here is that the HTC One M9 Plus display might be just 5.2in. As such, it’s kinda logical to expect the One M9’s display to be 5in with a lesser 1080p resolution. Maybe.
Also of interest is the camera technology. A rear HTC One M9 Plus camera of “20.7MP + 2.1MP” suggests Duo Camera shenanigans (the bog standard One M9 has been rumoured at plain old 20MP), while a front camera of 4MP would presumably mean UltraPixels.
There’s no official word just yet, but we’ve got the HTC One M9 (and hopefully Plus) launch pencilled in for Mobile World Congress in early March. The Samsung Galaxy S6 launch date, incidentally, has just been confirmed for March 1 in Barcelona.
In the meantime, what do you think? Would you rather have a 5.2in or 5.5in HTC One M9 Plus?
