Well, that didn’t take long. Just a couple of days after the HTC One E9+ was revealed in all its glory in a set of leaked images, the device has been made officially official.
HTC’s Chinese branch revealed the One E9+ today in a pretty quiet way: it just threw the phone up on its website. Perhaps the most notable feature of the One E9+ is its screen, which measures 5.5 inches in size and has a resolution of 2560×1440, making it the first HTC smartphone to have a QuadHD resolution. As for the rest of its spec list, here’s what HTC’s newest One has to offer:
- 20-megapixel rear, UltraPixel front cameras
- 64-bit, octa-core MediaTek MT6795M processor
- 16GB of storage, microSD card slot
- 3GB of RAM
- Dual SIM support
- 4G LTE
- BoomSound front speakers
- Android 5.0 and HTC Sense 7
- 2800mAh battery
It’s exciting to see HTC finally release a smartphone with a 2560×1440 for all of the spec hounds out there, though I’m sure a few will take issue with the use of glossy polycarbonate on the E9+’s body. Still, the E9+ looks like a solid addition to HTC’s One lineup. There’s no word on how much the E9+ will cost at launch or when it’ll hit shelves in China or anywhere else, so stay tuned for more.
