While you were sleeping—ok, while I was sleeping—HTC held a press event in Beijing, where the China-only One M9+ was made officially official.
At first glance it looks a lot like the “regular” M9, but there are some notable differences: a 2K display on a slightly larger 5.2 inch screen, a fingerprint scanner and, oddly, the return of the Duo Camera—this one matching the 20 megapixel resolution of the M9 for western markets. Oh, it’s also powered by a MediaTek chip. Interesting…
For the moment HTC has only confirmed that the M9+ will be available in China, with no further details of when or how much it will cost.
