HTC One E9 Specs News: New 'Cheaper' Android Flagship Appears In Live Images

After the One M9 that was announced earlier this month, it looks like there are more devices from the Taiwanese manufacturer than everyone expected.

First on the list is the One M9 Plus, which is already expected to make an appearance in an April 8 event in China.

Dubbed as the "More than One," event, the company will finally unveil the QHD-powered HTC smartphone.

But while everyone was expecting just two devices from HTC to rival the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge from Samsung, it seems the Taiwan-based company has other things in mind.

In a recent report, the One E9 appeared out of the blue. The reports came from GSM Arena that showed a number of leaked live images of the rumored handset.

Last year, HTC unveiled its One E8 lineup, which is a cheaper version of its then flagship, the One M8. Aside from getting an identical design, the innards are also similar.

However, in order to make the device cheaper than the flagship, HTC used polycarbonate plastic instead. For HTC fans since the Sensation and One X days, they will surely love the feel of the One E8.

And now, the E9 could be announced very soon.

Based on rumors, the HTC One E9 will depart from its predecessor and hold its own as an Android phablet. Rumored specs include a 5.5-inch display with QHD or 2K (2560 x 1440) resolution, 3GB of RAM, a 32GB built-in memory, BoomSound speakers and Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.

Rounding up the rumored spec sheet are the 20MP primary camera at the back and the 4MP UltraPixel shooter in front.

In the report, the HTC One E9 has just received TENAA certification in China, which means an actual release date is just around the corner.
