HTC’s One M9+ (a beefed up version of the company’s latest flagship phone) is still only available in Asia, but that may change in the next few months. A new rumor claims the device will be available across Europe in Q3 2015, which could be as soon as next month.
.@LlabTooFeR …followed by HTC Aero in Q4.

The leaker, who goes by the Twitter handle @LlabTooFer, has a pretty good track record when it comes to breaking HTC news. The rumor also got a boost from popular tipster @evleaks, who backed up the claim and added that a new device called the HTC Aero is slated to launch in Q4 2015—more on that later.
As for the HTC One M9+, this is pretty big news. The upgraded phone puts the regular M9 to shame, and it’s great to hear that HTC may finally offer the device outside of Asia. The M9+ packs a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, a 2840mAh battery, a 20-megapixel Duo Camera in back and an UltraPixel front-facing shooter. It also features a fingerprint reader.
Unfortunately we don’t know much about the rumored HTC Aero, though it could be the promised “hero product” coming in October. The company also recently submitted a Verizon-specific device to the FCC for certification, suggesting it definitely has something in the pipeline for American fans too.
There’s a lot to take in, but one thing is clear: don’t count out HTC for 2015 just yet. The company clearly has some big plans for the second half of the year, and we can’t wait to see what it’s working on.
