We kind of knew this was coming when HTC unveiled the One E9+. Apparently, the Taiwanese company will be releasing the One E9 in China very soon. As expected, it’s a lower-end version of the E9+ with a more standard 1080p panel – the E9+ has a sharper 2K display.
With a 5.5-inch 1080p display, the HTC One E9 has the least sharp display in comparison to other HTC One devices. Its higher-end variant (the One E9+), for one, has a much sharper 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 display. The One E9 also has a pixel density of 401ppi against the E9+’s sharper 534ppi display.
The One E9’s other hardware, however, are pretty much the same as the One E9+. These include a 2GHz octa-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card that supports cards up to 128GB, a 13MP rear camera, and a 4MP UltraPixel front-facing shooter. Of course, it will also have LTE connectivity and dual SIM support, much like it’s bigger variant.
The HTC One E9 is expected to launch in China sometime in August 2015 at an undisclosed retail price. No word yet on the local availability of the device in Malaysia.
