Earlier this month, HTC unveiled its latest Android flagship, the One M9 (and also signaled the end of updates for its One M7 ancestor). But another Android handset was also spotted passing through China's certification authority, TENAA, a couple of weeks ago, and it seems that that device has now been officially outed by the company.
Curiously, there's also some confusion over exactly what specs the new device will offer; it appears that two set of specs, for different devices, have inadvertently been mixed together - but it seems logical to conclude that the One E9+ will be joined by a 'standard' One E9 with a lesser set of specs to its sibling.
Assuming that this is accurate, key specs of the One E9+ will include:
- 5.5-inch display with Quad HD (2560x1440px) resolution
- 64-bit octa-core 2GHz MediaTek MT6795M chipset
- ?3GB RAM
- 32GB onboard storage (plus microSD support up to 128GB)
- 20MP rear camera
- UltraPixel front-facing camera
- BoomSound front-facing stereo speakers
- Dual-SIM (nano-SIM)
- Multi-mode 4G LTE connectivity
- Bluetooth 4.1
- Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac
- 2800mAh battery
- 156.5 x 76.5 x 7.5mm
The specs of the One E9 - which hasn't officially been revealed by HTC - would differ from the E9+ in these areas:
- 5.5-inch display with Full HD (1920x1080px) resolution
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB onboard storage
- 13MP rear camera
Details regarding pricing and availability have not yet been announced.
