HTC officially launches the One E9+ with 5.5-inch Quad HD display and 20 megapixel camera


Oddly enough, HTC has introduced a new phone that’s supposed to be an upgraded version of another phone that doesn’t yet officially exist. It’s the HTC One E9+, a 5.5-inch device with 2560 x 1440 resolution. It also sports a 20 megapixel camera on the rear, an UltraPixel camera on the front, 3GB of RAM and MediaTek’s 64-bit 8-core MT6795M chipset.

Compare that to the regular version of this phone — the HTC One E9 — which we’re expecting to launch with just a 13 megapixel camera, 1080p resolution and 2GB of RAM. We’d assumed HTC would look to wait until their April 8th event in Beijing to reveal this device up alongside the HTC One M9+, but it appears HTC wants to give the M9+ a stage of its own.

The E9+ isn’t likely to travel far outside of China from the starting gate, though there’s a possibility we’ll see it or its lower grade sibling made available for other markets. As it stands HTC hasn’t yet mentioned anything in terms of availability so it’d be wise to wait for official word. In the meantime let us know if you wouldn’t mind this low-cost option up against something like the HTC One M9 for your 2015 smartphone.

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. It looks like the third generation of One is going to be at least three Ones once again. Oh HTC..

    1. Aye twenty one pilots profile pic ftw ^
      You sir have a good taste in music |-/

      1. As do you! High five, stranger. |-/

  2. HTC is a ship adrift at this point.

  3. Focusing on one phone a year isn’t really happening. What you doing htc?

    1. $$$ speaks. HTC needs to hit it big in Asian markets, especially with their Butterfly line for them to survive, since they’re barely making strides with the M9 here in the US.

      1. If they would of fixed that damn camera. Well put a great one in it.

        1. I can look past at the “okay” screen, an average battery, and a throttled 810 (Sense is pretty snappy already), but adding an average potato camera? All that adds up, and doesn’t make the M9 look attractive at all.

          1. Yep. I tossed a sense 7 rom on my m8 and I’m good.

  4. Same crap bigger screen! A lot of the same looking devices! Its 2011-2012 all over again for HTC

    1. I completely agree with you. I was a big fan of HTC back then, they were having success and relied on the same designs over and over again. When they realized it, it was too late. Same thing has happened now. You are 100% right.

  5. looks good to me…but I think I’d rather have m9+
    It won’t fit in my pocket…but neither are my reading glasses….

  6. 5.5 inch screen with that big stupid ugly bezel, no thanks

  7. Tempting, but nah.

  8. I got the One E8.
    Money wellspent
