Companies unceremoniously launching products is not a new practice neither does it mean they have less love for the device. Well, HTC has quietly unveiled its latest phablet on its China website. It probably could have been an unintentional unveil but still, it’s no longer a secret. The HTC One E9+ on the company’s site is the same device we saw on the certification database this month with a few modifications.
The 7.49mm-thick HTC One E9+ is a half metal, half plastic phablet with a 5.5-inch Quad HD (534 ppi) display. We have some discrepancy when it comes to the actual spec of the device as the product and specification page carry different specs. The specification on the site states a 1080p resolution, 2GB of RAM instead of 3GB, and 13-megapixel main camera instead of the 20-megapixel version mentioned on the product page. As for the rest of the HTC One E9+ spec, we’ll be getting a 64-bit, octa-core 2GHz MT6795M chipset from MediaTek, 16GB of internal storage, microSD expansion of up to 128GB, dual Nano SIM slots, a 2,800 mAh battery, a UltraPixel front-facing camera and the usual BoomSound front-facing stereo speakers. For connectivity, the device comes with a multi-mode LTE along with 802.11ac WiFi. There’s no availability date or pricing for the device, we hope to get more info from HTC soon.
