Introducing the HTC One M9+


The most anticipated phone after the HTC One M9 is finally here! Let's take a closer look at what HTC offers in the M9's "big brother":

Luxurious Design – The HTC One M9+ leverages HTC’s iconic, all-metal design and combines it with significant enhancements including a 5.2” 2K display with Fingerprint authentication, HTC BoomSound with Dolby Audio surround sound, new-and-improved Duo Camera, and support for up to 2TB of microSD storage.

Sense 7: An Extension of You – Your smartphone should make a statement about who you are, and HTC Sense 7 puts you in control of everything. HTC Themes puts you at the center of your smartphone experience; Sense Home reinvents the home screen to deliver the most useful apps to your homepage based on your location; and a more intelligent HTC BlinkFeed makes it easier to uncover the hidden gems that surround you by using location data to recommend points of interest, news and information.

Immersive Viewing Experience – The HTC One M9+ comes with a new 2K display wrapped in a 5.2” WQHD (1440 x 2560) screen. Even with a larger display, the size of the phone rests comfortably in the palm of your hands. With the new MediaTek Helio X10 processor, you will experience smooth movie playback and sharp photos.

Incredible Imaging – The HTC One M9+ comes with a 20-megapixel rear Duo Camera wrapped in a sapphire glass lens cover that protects it from scratches. For vivid video that looks like the latest blockbuster, the camera also shoots movies in 4K resolutions. For low-light, front-facing selfies, the HTC One M9+ comes with the new and improved HTC UltraPixel front-facing camera.  And to take creative pictures to the next level, the HTC One M9+ comes equipped with the HTC EYE Experience software for easy editing and the new HTC One Gallery to access all of your photos, wherever they’re stored.

Exhilarating Audio – The M9+ comes with a larger-than-life soundtrack courtesy of HTC BoomSound combined with 5.1 channel Dolby Audio surround sound simulation. This gets you even closer to the action, delivering extraordinary, multidimensional cinematic listening.  

Connect Your World – Smartphones are fast becoming the central hub for home entertainment and HTC Connect makes it easy to enjoy your multimedia experience beyond your phone. A three-finger swipe on the screen connects the phone to compatible TVs or external speakers from leading manufacturers including Harman Kardon. For the ultimate connected smartphone-powered TV experience, the HTC One M9+ comes exclusively preloaded with the Peel Smart Remote app.

Security at a Finger’s Length – The HTC One M9+ comes with a new fingerprint sensor. Located at the front of the phone for easy access, just one touch unlocks your phone. With the multi-directional sensors, all you need to do is to place your finger on the sensor in any direction to unlock your phone.
