We’ve been hearing about rumors and leaks regarding the HTC One M9+ for quite some time now, and we’ve finally been blessed with its official announcement today. This new device is among the first from the Taiwanese company to ship with a QHD display bearing a 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution.

The panel on the front of this smartphone is 5.2 inches in size, and is of the Super LCD 3 type. It runs the Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, but instead of the regular Sense UI, the HTC One M9+ goes for a special version of the user interface that’s aimed only at the Chinese population. After all, the device has only been announced for the said country till now.
