So much has been written about the upcoming HTC One (M9) Plus but more features and specifications of the device have been leaked over the last few days. However, its performance shown on AnTuTu benchmark is said to be below expectations.
The performance of HTC One (M9) Plus is uninspiring and lags behind the Sony Xperia Z2 (one year ago) with a Snapdragon 801 and Xiaomi Mi3 powered by Snapdragon 800 in the AnTuTu benchmark, according to GSMArena (via Nowhereelse).
The leak claimed that the device would have PowerVR G6200 GPU with several Mediatek chipsets like MT6595 and the MT6795 but with CPU clocking at 1.95GHz. It went on to claim that the device will feature a QHD display which could be the reason for the low score in the benchmark.
It was earlier reported that HTC would release two models - HTC One (M9) and HTC One (M9) Plus – with different screen size and to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 and 64-bit MediaTek processors.
Not much has been reported by on the HTC One (M9) Plus model but reports suggested that it would sport features similar to the HTC One (M9), which is expected to come with 1920 x 1080 resolution screen, Android 5.0 Lollipop, 2840mAh battery, 20.7MP main camera and 13MP or UltraPixel 4MP front snapper, HTC Sense 7, and 3GB RAM.
However, BGR (via 4G News) reported that the HTC One (M9) would boast of features like a 5.5-inch display with quad HD resolution screen, 32GB internal memory and 3GB RAM, 20MP main camera, 3,000 mAh battery and fingerprint scanner.
HTC One (M9) codenamed "Hima" and HTC One (M9) Plus, codenamed "HTC Hima Ace Plus" are expected to be announced at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC 2015) to be held between 2-5 March.
