HTC One E9 TENAA listing reveals 5.5-inch QHD display, octa-core processor, large camera module
Last year, the HTC One E8 was virtually the plastic embodiment of the flagship One M8, and an unannounced HTC One M9 has now surfaced online.
Unlike last year's One E8, however, which came with the same hardware specifications as the flagship One M8 (except for the camera department), this year's HTC One E9 will apparently be notably different from the newly-announced One M9 flagship.
The upcoming HTC One E9 has just surfaced on China's TENAA certification body, which is the Chinese equivalent of the FCC. According to the listing, the HTC One E9 will sport a larger, higher-resolution display compared to the One M9, pack an octa-core processor under the hood, and a large camera module on the back.
More specifically, the HTC One E9 will apparently boast a 5.5-inch display with a QHD resolution of 2660 x 1440 pixels, a notable jump from the 5-inch full HD display of the flagship One M9. The handset will apparently rock an octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz, but the exact model is unspecified. Other specs include 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage capacity, microSD support for additional memory of up to 128GB, and a 2,800 mAh battery to keep things up and running.
The TENAA listing makes no mention of cameras, but the image showing the rear of the device clearly reveals a larger module compared to last year's One E8. Considering that the HTC One E8 features a 13-megapixel rear camera, this year's One E9 is expected to rock a 20-megapixel rear shooter.
In terms of design, the HTC One E9 appears to be thinner and flatter compared to the One M9, and will likely come with the same polycarbonate body as its predecessor. The images further show a two-tone color scheme with a gold-hued edge.
It remains unclear at this point just when HTC will announce its new One E9, but the TENAA listing nonetheless indicates an imminent debut. The flagship HTC One M9 is set to hit commercial availability soon, and the One E9 will likely become official sometime after that. We'll keep you up to date as soon as more information becomes available, so stay tuned.
