Like last year, HTC would have provided a cheaper variant of its flagship. It logically takes the name of One E9 and has been certified in China. The launch would no longer far away.
Well before the announcement of the One M9 at MWC, rumors already evoked the existence of several variants. He even told that one or more would be revealed to the side of the flagship. Finally, this was not the case but we obviously did not have to wait much longer to see the first one. This would be the One E9. Replacing the One E8, cheaper alternative to One (M8) in China, has been certified by TENAA.
Different on the outside…
As always, the Chinese certification body has been generous by putting his updated database. Measurements, components photos. Everything is there and it seems that the One E9 slightly more different from the One M9 than was the One (E8) of One (M8). As for the duo in 2014, the difference lies in the design with built entirely of plastic. Also note that the camera takes a round and not square. But this time there have also been some major changes under the hood.
… But also inside!
The display has been extended and refined. TENAA indeed confirms the diagonal of 5.5 “and QHD resolution (against 5″ Full HD on the flagship). As a result, the smartphone would obviously be greater: 156.5 x 76.5 x 7.54 mm. Notice that two good disappeared millimeters in thickness. This is because the battery has she not won capacity. She even lost 40 mAh to reach 2800 mAh.
The side of the chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 was replaced by the MediaTek MT6795, which is perhaps just as well given the overheating problems. The rest would still have been preserved: 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, 20 megapixel camera and webcam UltraPixel. The smartphone comes would obviously with Android Lollipop dressed Sense 7.0.
The passage in TENAA obviously confirms that the One E9 is expected soon to be launched in China. The price should be lower than the One M9. Unfortunately, the chances of him coming home are slim. The One E8 was booked in Asia.
