After leaking out several times throughout the past couple of weeks, the HTC One E9+ is official.
HTC China quietly added the One E9+ to its website today, revealing an Android 5.0 smartphone with HTC Sense 7 and a 5.5-inch 2560x1440 display. Yep, that means that we’ve finally got an HTC smartphone with a QuadHD display. Also on the outside of the One E9+’s body are BoomSound speakers, a 20-megapixel rear camera with flash, and an UltraPixel selfie camera. The body of the One E9+ has a metal edge with a polycarbonate shell.
Packed inside of that 7.49mm-thick frame is a 64-bit, 2GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6795M processor, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot, dual SIM support, 4G LTE connectivity, and a 2800mAh battery.
The One E9+ may not have the full-metal body like its One M9 sibling, but what it does have is a QuadHD screen resolution, which I’m betting a few folks would like to have seen on the One M9. Overall the One E9+ looks like a solid Android offering, combining the design of the One M9 with a bigger, higher-res display than the M9. Unfortunately, it’s not clear if the E9+ will make it out of China; heck, we don’t even know when it’s launch there yet. Stay tuned and I’ll let you know more when I know more.
What do you think of the HTC One E9+? Would you rather carry it or the One M9?
