HTC One M9 Plus pictures tease improved flagship phone

The HTC One M9 might only have launched this week but it already looks set to be superseded by an improved offering, the HTC One M9 Plus.

Having been the subject of multiple recent leaks, the One M9 Plus has now been caught on camera as a fingerprint scanner incorporating big brother to the newly unveiled M9.

Tipped to feature a larger display than its 5-inch sibling, the One M9 Plus has been shown (via Weibo) to host a physical home button. Like the Galaxy S6, this physical control will reportedly incorporate a biometric sensor.

While its naming suffix would hint at an oversized handset, the Plus will reportedly line up at just 5.2-inches in size.

Improved specs, more than size, look to be the focus of the Plus’s advancements, however.

According to repeated leaks, the M9 Plus will adopt a 2560 x 1440 pixel QHD display, an omission from the standard M9.

On top of this, a larger camera sensor looks set to feature alongside a 2.0GHzocta-core MediaTek processor. The M9 runs Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 810 chip.

Specs differences aside, the M9 Plus looks set to adopt a design markedly similar to that of the original M9. Both handsets have been shown with sleek, curved backed, metal finishes.

At present it is currently unclear when the HTC One M9 will be introduced and if the handset will be available in the same markets as its sibling.
