Looks like HTC’s working on a new phone with some stylish good looks. It’s being called the HTC One E9, and it was leaked by a familiar source in @upleaks. Details are slim right now, but we can see that the phone borrows design cues from the best of both the mid-range and high-end tiers of HTC’s device lineup.
The front of the device is more akin to an HTC One M8 / M9, complete with BoomSound speakers and a bezel with an oddly-placed logo. Flipping it to the rear reveals what appears to be a glossy plastic material that’s often used for HTC’s Desire lineup.
An earlier leak suggested the device would come with some pretty capable hardware:
- 5.5-inch QHD display
- 2.2GHz Octa-core MediaTek MT6795 chipset
- 3GB of RAM
- 32GB if internal storage
- 20 megapixel camera
Not bad, though fans of Qualcomm’s might opt to pass. HTC is said to be launching the device in China before month’s end, so we’ll have to wait until then before we’re let in on any other details. Would you buy one if it were made available in your area?
