Photos of an alleged One E9 from HTC have hit the web, courtesy of Chinese regulators. For Americans, existence of the E9 does not mean too much quite yet, as usually, HTC has an overseas device that they tout as a secondary flagship. If history serves us right, the chances of this exact device landing on our soil is unlikely, given HTC’s need to position the One M9 at the top of their North American portfolio.
However, according to known leaker Upleaks, the One E9 could come with a 5.5″ QHD display, MediaTek 64-bit octa-core processor, and 13MP front-facing camera. Stack those few specs against the One M9 and you have yourself one tasty treat if it makes its way to the US the same as it is overseas.
If HTC plans to put more of a marketing push behind the E9, then who knows what could happen for us here in the US. For now, and as always, nothing is confirmed.
