The HTC E9+ goes official, becomes the company's first Quad HD smartphone
Just a few days ago, we showed you a couple images of two new HTC devices and well today, a listing on HTC's own website reveals the new HTC One E9+. According to the website, the HTC One E9+ is the company's first smartphone with a Quad HD (1440 X 2560) display. The company has been adamant with full HD displays for their recent HTC One M9 despite the competition already pushing out Quad HD since last year.
This new phablet from HTC from the back looks to be part of the Desire lineup but on the front it looks near identical to their HTC One flagship devices. The sides of the device feature a metal looking trim but in reality the device is a plastic unibody phone.
Dominating the front of the screen is a 5.5" Quad HD (1440 X 2560) display and pushing all that pixels is the top of the line Mediatek (MT6795M) which is 64-bit and features 8 cores (4 cortex A53 + 4 cortex A57). Other than that, the HTC E9+ also features a massive 20MP camera which seemingly protrudes from the back and looks unusually large.
Besides that other signature HTC One features like the front facing Boom Sound speakers and the Ultrapixel front facing camera are also present on this new phablet. Overall, this looks to be a pretty good looking package overall but given that this is currently only listed on the chinese HTC site, this might very well be a China exclusive device.
Also, pricing and availability of the HTC E9+ is yet to be known but HTC is scheduled to have an event on April 8 in Beijing in which the company is expected to unveil the HTC One M9+. As always, stay tuned for more on the HTC One E9+.
