The HTC One M9 boasts a pretty respectable 5-inch display, but what if you want something bigger? We’ve heard plenty of rumors that a phablet-sized One M9+ is already in the works, but another new leak claims to reveal exactly how big the phone will be.

According to trusted tech leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, the HTC One M9+ will come in at 5.2 inches. That’s not much of a leap from the original One M9, at least when it comes to size. You can see the two devices side-by-side in a newly leaked render from Hemmerstoffer, which also reveals a few other differences in design and hardware.

The One M9+ appears to sport a physical home button upfront, possibly with a built-in fingerprint scanner. It also packs what looks like a Duo Camera setup in back, though hopefully with a 20-megapixel shooter like the flagship M9. Otherwise the two phones seem pretty similar.

Based on earlier leaks we’re also hoping for a pixel-packed 2K display on the HTC One M9+, along with 3GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 810 processor. Last week we heard the device could launch in the first half of 2015, though Hemmerstoffer notes it may already be cancelled. We can only hope that’s not the case after getting a good look at what may be HTC’s best smartphone yet.
