HTC’s One E9 with 5.5″ HD display clears TEENA
Enough of the Quad HD madness. If you need a widescreen HTC smartphone with a “normal” resolution that won’t just “kill” your battery for invisible pixels, you might just have to wait for the One E9.
The device just got approved at China’s TEENA, a government agency that sees to the approval of communication products before they hit the Chinese market.
The HTC One E9 isn’t even clad in aluminum like the other HTC flagships that were released earlier this year. With a body that measures 158.7 x 79.7 x 7.64 mm weighs in at 165 grams, the plastic handset will house a 5.5-inch screen with HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution, according to the TEENA listing.
The device will break cover with an unidentified 1.5GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of in-built storage. There’s going to be a 13MP main snapper at the back while the front is home to a 4MP UltraPixel camera.
Pricing for the HTC One E9 isn’t known for now but just last week, the Taiwanese company released a dual SIM HTC One E9+ with Quad HD 5.5″ display and 3GB of RAM for INR 36,790 ($575). The One E9+ is expected to launch at a price way lower than that but the release date is still unknown.
