HTC One E9 leak shows a phone plastered with glossy material

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?

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Just waiting for a 2nd gen desire eye

    1. that was a cool looking phone

  2. mediatek -gross. has their been any good phone with mediatek on it?? real question

    1. well you definitely wont be seeing turbo charge with any mediatek processor.

    2. Nope. The ones who end up buying it praise it, but ultimately it doesn’t update as easily, and bogs down quickly. Their newer processors are better, but I still don’t trust it 100%.

  3. That is one ugly phone.

  4. shiny

  5. The screen size we phablet lovers hoped the M9+ would have. If it comes to the States I think I’ll skip on it due to the MT, no guaranteed updates. With M9 and M9+ I know HTC will deliver.

  6. Y’all able to delete these spamming comments?
