China's telecommunications regulator TENAA has leaked out images for the HTC One E9, a previously unannounced smartphone that appears to be a larger, slimmer cousin to the just announced HTC One M9.
This new phone appears to be a successor to the HTC One E8 that was released in some markets in 2014. According to the specs on TENNA's site, the HTC One E9 will have a 5.5-inch QHD 2660x1440 display,a 2GHz octa-core chip, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage with a microSD slot and a 20-megapixel rear camera.
Since this phone has passed through the approval process at TENAA, we can expect to hear more about the HTC One E9 very soon — though if it's anything like its predecessor, it might not see widespread release outside Asia. It's also interesting to see this year's "E" model potentially sporting a more Desire-like design language. In any case, this is a device we'll be watching with interest.
