HTC One M9 Plus sized up against One M9 in leaked renders

HTC One M9

New renders have leaked purportedly showcasing the much-mooted HTC One M9 Plus.

The image, leaked courtesy of prolific tipster Onleaks, reveals a sized-up version of the HTC One M9 alongside the existing flagship.

HTC hasn’t offered up any details on the rumoured device thus far, so this mock-up is one of our best looks yet at the device.

So what’s changed from the HTC One M9? For starters, there’s the return of the Duo Camera on the rear, which we previously saw on last year’s HTC One M8.

There also seems to be a physical home button on the device’s bottom bezel, which gels with rumours that the upcoming handset will carry an integrated fingerprint sensor.

The HTC One M9 Plus pictured is clearly larger than the HTC One M9 too, although it’s not a huge leap in screen size. The HTC One M9, for comparison, ships with a 5-inch 1080p display.

The new device, however is expected to carry a 5.2-inch, 2K display, although other reports have suggested a larger 5.5-inch panel will be used instead. This mock-up suggests the former is true.

It will also reportedly run off a 2.0GHz octa-core MediaTek processor, instead of the Snapdragon 810 chip that landed inside the HTC One M9.

The HTC One M9 currently prices up at £580 SIM-free, so we’d expect that this beefed up blower will cost considerably more, like stepping on the turf of the iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

While it’s not yet clear when the pumped up the device will actually land, but our best guess in some time in Q2, possibly May. The HTC One M9, meanwhile, is due on March 31 – the final day of Q1.

Looks like its going to be a brick, way to fat and big for a phone of its size.

The more of I see of the M9 and the S6 the more I'm hoping that Motorola come out with something awesome later in the year. Right now I'm due an upgrade from the M7 but none of this is tickling my fancy.

Couldn't agree more that this is far too big a device.

I definitely get where you are coming from, upgrades are becoming so incremental. Don't forget LG G4, Sony Z4 and Note 5 though they are likely to be great devices.

I'd be interested in the LG and the Sony - the Note 5 is too big for me (much bigger than the M9 +) but it will undoubtedly be a good device.

LG are rumoured to be making the next Nexus phone as well, very interested to see what comes our way based on that because I could finally be in the release cycle to get one!
