HTC One E9 (A55) with 5.5-inch Quad HD screen could be launched this month

It seems that the E9 will be HTC's first smartphone to sport a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display - one that measures 5.5 inches. However, unlike the M9, the One E9 won't use a Snapdragon processor, but a MediaTek one: a 64-bit, octa-core MT6795 processor clocked at 2.0 GHz. The One E9 should run Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense 7.0 UI, while also featuring: BoomSound speakers, a 20 MP rear camera, 4 MP UltraPixel front-facing camera (or 13 MP, on some variants), 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal memory.
It's said that the One E9 will be available in three color versions: white rose gold, metallic gray, and brown gold. All in all, this could be that One M9 Plus that you've been expecting, though it's not clear if HTC is planning to launch it around the world. We'll let you know when we find out more.
P.S.: What you're seeing in the image above is just a concept design, not a real device.

I hope this won't take the place of the m9 plus. but if it did, they should put the snapdragon 810 in it, imo.

you mean the 810 that has overheating problem? Sure, why not?!

I hope not. Aren't there issues with the 810? And we are not even talking about handsets with a QHD screen.

So a higher resolution with a crappier GPU.This is exactly what you need HTC.

It's a mid range that won't come to the US buddy. Not a flagship

Isn't this the same rumor as last year and the HTC One E8? And that turned out to just be a polycarbonate cheaper version of the M8.....Just sayin....

Mediatek gpu isn't going to be powerful enough for the display

people just hate it cause the gpu kinda sucks hers a comparison ...Mediatek 6795 CPU PowerVR G6200 GPU (runs with about 90~ gflops), Snapdragon 810 Adreno 430 (runs with about 350~gflops), Exynos 7430 about 200~gflops (gflops are floating point operation) or easier they say how much the gpu can process... hope this helped a bit
