HTC ONE M9 +: Plans To Launch Another ‘One’ On April 8 In China
You still can’t buy an HTC One M9 until April 10, But the company may announce another new phone before its flagship even hits the market. HTC has planned an event for April 8 for an event in Beijing. There is speculation that the manufacturer intends to introduce a One M9 + denoted smartphone. This will feature a 5.2-inch qHD screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
The processor is supposed to take as the One at 64-bit MediaTek MT6795T processor with PowerVR G6200 graphics used. The device will also feature a fingerprint sensor and a home button. The venue could indicate that the smartphone is only available in Asia. The slogan of the event is “More than One”, which probably indicates the idea of another model.
