Update: Sep 29, 2015 – As announced earlier, HTC has announced two smartphones for the international markets. While the Butterfly 3 is already available in Japan, the One M9+ which is already available in the international markets has relaunched with OIS camera. The new One M9+ will be available for sale starting from October 15 in Taiwan. It is priced at NT$20900 which translated to US$630.
While the device looks same as the earlier launched One M9+, the 20MP rear camera has been upgraded to 21MP sensor with an aperture of f/2.2 and optical image stabilization. With the added laser auto focus along with phase detection auto foucs the device can capture the images in less than 0.1 sec without any blur.
With the HTC Eye mode you can split the screen top view both rear and front camera at a time. The device continued to feature the dual front-facing BoomSound speakers. Apart from the camera, other specifications of the device are same as on the earlier launched One M9+.
Earlier: April 14, 2015 – HTC has officially announced the larger version of M9, the M9+ with a 5.2-inch Quad HD display and a Mediatek chipset. We already had seen the official unveiling of the HTC One E9+ a few days back, and now the Plus variant of flagship One M9 has some surprises as well.
The HTC One M9+ is officially launched in India, after its recent announcement in China. The M9+ will be available from May 3rd, and the price is set at Rs. 52500.
Under the Quad HD display, there is a octa-core MediaTek MT6795T chip (2.2GHz, 64 bit) powering the device along with 3GB of RAM. HTC has taken the 4MP UltraPixel camera from the back to the front, and now the rear camera is a 20-megapixel sensor along with the Duo camera setup for better 3D bokeh effects.
There is a Fingerprint sensor placed below the screen, and just like what we see as a home button on Samsung devices, it is a physical button-like appearance on the One M9+. The BoomSound speakers are there, as usual, and the phone has a 2840 mAh battery packed in. This will be the first device from HTC to have the MHL3 technology.
No proper details about the pricing and availability of the HTC One M9+ is given, though it is right now just launched for the Chinese market.
