The HTC One M9 is about to launch, but the company could be ready to offer something even better in the near future. A new report from @upleaks claims the rumored HTC One M9+ will get a global launch in the first half of 2015.
Confirmed：Hima_Ultra will be going to the market as HTC One M9+(not Plus), and I was wrong it will be available in EMEA too…

The big news here, beyond that name change, is that HTC’s rumored phablet will be available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). In a follow-up response, @upleaks also reveals that the One M9+ is apparently set to launch in either Q1 or early Q2 of 2015.
Based on earlier leaks, we already have some idea of what to expect from the One M9+. HTC is allegedly set to introduce a 5.5-inch phablet with a Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM and a Duo Camera setup. The device also appears to sport a physical home button in front, which could potentially double as a fingerprint scanner.
If @upleaks is right it won’t be much longer before HTC unveils the One M9+, but until we get an official announcement any phablet fans out there may want to think twice before picking up the flagship Android phone.
