HTC One M9e receives TENAA certification; phone to be unveiled on September 29th?
Last week, we told you that the latest rumors revealed that the HTC One A9 will not be unveiled on September 29th as expected. The teaser that hinted at two releases on that date apparently has to do with the introduction of the HTC Butterfly 3 for China, and a new global version of the HTC One M9+ to be named the HTC One M9e. 

The legitimacy of that rumor got a little stronger today with the certification of the HTC One M9e in China, via TENAA. This model features a 5-inch IPS display carrying a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution screen. That works out to a 441ppi pixel density. The MediaTek MT6795 SoC appears to be under the hood, featuring an octa-core 2.2GHz CPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of native storage. Those requiring additional memory can access the 128GB capacity microSD slot found on board the unit. A 13MP camera is on back, while the infamous 4MP Ultrapixel  front-facing snapper shoots selfies and handles video chats. Android 5.0.2 is pre-installed.

The HTC One M9e is just as thick (9.61mm) as the HTC One M9+, but has inferior specs to the One M9+ in almost every category. The screen on the latter is Super LCD 3 as opposed to the IPS display on the One M9e. Additionally, the One M9+ features a QHD resolution (1440 x 2560) as opposed to the FHD resolution (1080 x 1920) on the soon to be introduced model. Two other differences involve the rear-facing camera (20MP on the one M9+ and 13MP on the One M9e) and the amount of RAM inside (3GB on the One M9+, 2GB on the One M9e). The new model does support 4G LTE connectivity.

Instead of being introduced on September 29th, we now expect the HTC One A9 to be announced during huge media events that will be held next month in multiple cities across the U.S. HTC is expected to heavily market the handset starting in October.
