By the looks of it, HTC’s new version of its flagship smartphone seems to don an updated version of the One M8 s duo-lens camera setup. The One M9+ sports a 20-megapixel camera module with a secondary depth sensor mounted over it. Other than that, the One M9+ has the similar two-tone design and brushed metal texture at the back.

A bunch of photos of the One M9+ were also leaked yesterday by nowhereelse.fr giving us a good look at the device. The images show the volume and power button situated on the right edge. Even though we see the second camera cropped off in the press image, we see the full duo-camera setup in the leak, accompanied by a dual-LED flash. It reveals the full metal One M9-like design, with the gold and silver finish. Another big addition is a physical button at the bottom, which was absent on the One M8 or the One M9, which could be a fingerprint sensor.
Just a few days ago, tipster Upleaks also leaked intel about the One M9+ stating that the new phone will be made available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The smartphone will also include a 20-megapixel rear camera, and a similar 12-megapixel camera at the front. On the software front, again the smartphone runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box.
The One M9+ will flaunt a 5.2-inch display with a QHD (2560 1440 pixels) resolution. Unlike the One M9, the new variant is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek MT6795 octa-core processor paired with PowerVR Rogue G6200 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The device will offer 32GB of internal storage.
