Barely 10 days after the HTC One M9 was launched, it appears that the company has another smartphone in the making.
The device pictured above is the HTC One E9, and was spotted in China.
The phablet was allegedly known as the HTC Hima Ace, and sports a 5.5″ Quad HD Display, and a flatter body. The device will be powered by a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek processor, and 3GB of RAM.
And it appears that the phone could come in two variants, with the standard one shipping with a 13 Megapixel front camera, and a high end one with a 4 Megapixel Ultrapixel front camera. The rear camera is a 20 Megapixel lens. The E9 will have HTC’s BoomSound Audio Technology, support for Bluetooth 4.1, and runs on Android 5.0 with Sense 7.0 UI. The device is backed by a 2800 mAH battery.
The E9 measures 156.5 × 76.5 × 7.54 (mm). It is a Dual SIM device with Dual Standby, and supports 4G LTE networks.
The HTC One M9 has been criticized for not having a Quad HD display, and carrying the same old design that has been around since the One M7 which was launched 2 years ago.
