HTC says something ‘HUGE’ is coming, could be One M9 Plus

HTC has tweeted an enigmatic message claiming that “Something HUGE is coming.”

This message from the HTC USA Twitter account might at first glance appear to point to the March 1 launch event for the HTC One M9.

But look again and you might start to wonder why the word HUGE is emphasised. Could this be a hint that the rumoured HTC One M9 Plus is also going to be on display at MWC?

While we’ve read and seen plenty of leaked information on the vanilla HTC One M9, there have been far fewer tidbits to emerge concerning a possible larger model.

Earlier in February, however, specifications for a larger HTC One M9 appeared to leak. According to those, the HTC One M9 will sport a 5.2-inch QHD display, which would put the 5-inch 1080p HTC One M9 in the shade, somewhat.

The other major difference with the HTC One M9 Plus will apparently be the addition of a fingerprint sensor, set to be housed in a dedicated home button, iPhone 6 style.

Internally, it seems as if the HTC One M9 Plus will have the same Snapdragon 810 CPU as its little brother.

The question is, does this latest tweeted hint suggest that the HTC One M9 Plus is closer to release than we thought? Initially it was suspected that it would trail the HTC One M9, but now we’re not so sure.
