HTC officially unveils the One M9+ sporting a Quad HD display and fingerprint scanner

HTC One M9+

After weeks of rumors and speculation, the HTC One M9+ has finally gone official today. The handset was unveiled in China by the company and will unfortunately remain an exclusive to the region. In order to make it stand apart from its 1080p sibling, HTC has made some rather odd design changes. The most notable among these changes is the relatively larger 5.2 inch panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 or Quad HD (2K).

The company has also decided to add a central home button to the device which also doubles as a fingerprint scanner. This means the speaker grill on the bottom is divided into two halves, which if we’re being honest looks a little strange. The speaker grill on the top remains unchanged though.

Also making a reappearance is the Duo Camera setup on the back accompanying the 20.7-megapixel primary camera for depth focusing and other image tweaks. The smartphone has a 2.2 GHz octa core MediaTek MT6795T, 3GB of RAM, front facing Ultrapixel camera, 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, Android 5.0.2 Lollipop and a 2,840 mAh battery pack.
