HTC One E9 leaks revealing a 5-inch screen, centered rear camera and BoomSound
Published on a Chinese social media site today are some leaked pictures reportedly showing the HTC One E9. The handset is expected to carry a 5-inch screen and will be priced at the equivalent of $483 USD. Two weeks ago to the day, we told you that the device had passed muster with TENAA which is China's version of the FCC.

Today's report not only mentioned the 5-inch glass that the phone is sporting, it claims that the handset will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 805 CPU. The HTC One E9 is wearing a case in the photographs, and is running Sense 7 over Android 5.0.

The HTC One E9 will include the stereo BoomSound front-facing speakers and a large circular camera lens is centered on top of the back of the phone. It looks like the power button will be on the side of the handset, right under the volume rocker as seen with the HTC One M9. HTC is going to hold an event on April 8th under the "More than One" banner. The clever title could be a hint that besides introducing a new handset like the HTC One E9, we could see HTC unveil a new tablet or a smartwatch during the event.

With nearly two weeks to go before the "More than One" event, we should see some more leaks in the near future giving us a better idea of what to expect from HTC's camp on April 8th.

Well, HTC is the only OEM I care about so why not? It doesn't bother anyone does it?

how much HTC paid you?

Yes...S805. Honestly they should have used some type of overclocked S805/808 for the HTC M9, but at least I can see a much promising future for this phone for the E9.

Now they went back to 805. Whats the purpose of buying an 805 equipped gadget in 2015 at that ridiculous price? Why can't they use use exynos?

It would be a lot better if the E9 came with MT6795 and the 20MP sensor that is necessary to capture 1080p@480fps; and a 1080p screen (so that the GPU can easily handle it). That, together with the BoomSound speakers, would make this phone a multimedia beast! Regarding the M9+, I would prefer it to sport the SD805 (enough to power a 2K screen, and way more optimized/less hot) so that the E9 carries the MT6795 and the video capabilities mentioned before. I would ask for USB-C too, but the possibilities are quite low.

E9 will came with 2GHz MT6795, 5.5 inch 2K display and 20MP back cam for sure.

I'd rather have a dated 805 than a problematic 810

Those speaker grills are just.. Ugh. I thought E9 was simply the M9's design but made out of plastic. (?)
