Do you consider the HTC One M9 a bit to small and bulky? Then you should be glad to hear that the Taiwanese mobile manufacturer has another device up their sleeve that may attract your attention. We are referring here to the One E9 which has been spotted recently in the database of China’s TENAA along with great number of images and pretty complete list of specs. The leak reveals the phone to be a bigger and thinner successor of the HTC One E8 additionally sporting an extremely sharp QHD display.
HTC One E9 – What to expect.
Released last year the HTC One E8 was a more affordable and lower-specced plastic alternative to the HTC’s flagship of 2014, the HTC One M8. In the case of the upcoming HTC One E9 things seem to be a bit different since the phone features plastic design highly resembling the one found in the HTC’s Desire lineup, but its specs simultaneously appear to beat those found in the One M9.
Measuring 156.5×76.5×7.54 mm (6.1 x 3 x 0.3 inches)the handset appears to be considerably thinner and flatter than the dressed in the metal body case M9. Additionally, it seems to sport a two-tone color scheme with golden accents and an innovative back camera placement that is located very close to the phone’s edge.
When it comes to tech specs, the HTC One E9 is reported to debut with a massive 5.5-inch display featuring super sharp Quad HD resolution, which seems to be a great improvement in comparison to the M9’s decent 1080p screen. It will also come powered by the 64-bit 2.0GHz octa-core MediaTek chipset paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB of built-in storage, which is another bump up from the M9 that runs on the Snapdragon 810.
In the field of optics, the One E9 is likely to offer its future users a 20MP rear camera accompanied by a 13-megapixel front shooter. On the software side, the E9 future users will most likely get the latest Android Lollipop, which seems to be the most reasonable currently available OS choice. Furthermore, the handset will be kept alive by a 2,800 mAh battery.
The HTC One E9 is allegedly scheduled to have its premiere in late March. However, taking into account the fact that its predecessor had limited worldwide availability, we can’t be sure whether it will be accessible in every corner of the globe. When it comes to the US market the phone is highly probable to join the Sprint’s offer just like the E8 did.
