The tipster said that the new phone will be made available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The HTC One M9+ was slated for a Q1 launch but now it seems that the launch will happen only in Q2.
The HTC One M9+ leaks and benchmark results have rendered quite a clear image on the specifications of the device. One M9+ maybe powered by the octa-core MediaTek MT6795 or a Snapdragon 810 SoC. Additionally; it is expected to sport a 5.2-inch QHD display and might incorporate the fingerprint scanner as well.
The smartphone is also expected to feature 3GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, 20.7-megapixel primary sensor borrowed from the One M9, and might stick to a normal 13-megapixel secondary camera as opposed to the 4-Ultrapixel sensor in the One M9.
There is no word on the availability as yet. Per reports however, the One M9 is likely to launch in the US in April 10.
