Although HTC is still in the process of rolling out their newest flagship device, the HTC One M9, they have issued an invitation to an announcement event scheduled for April 8th in Beijing. The announcement includes an image of an HTC smartphone that appears to have a dual camera setup, consistent with rumors of the HTC One M9 Plus camera equipment.
