The HTC Wildfire E could mark the brand's return to the budget segment
The company is reportedly preparing a rather compact smartphone under the Wildfire E branding that’ll arrive equipped with a 5.45-inch LCD display which will boast an 18:9 aspect ratio and an HD+ (1440 x 720p) resolution. Presumably, the panel will be paired with relatively slim side bezels and pretty thick bottom and top ones, the latter of which is said to house a 5-megapixel selfie shooter.
It’s unclear at this stage if the Wildfire E will feature a plastic, glass, or aluminum rear panel. Regardless, the report suggests it’ll house a dual-camera setup which consists of a primary 13-megapixel snapper and a 2-megapixel depth sensor for better portrait photos.
On the inside, the report points towards the presence of a low-end, octa-core processor first introduced last year and produced by a company most people won’t have heard of – UniSoC. Paired with this will apparently be 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Completing the setup should be a 3,000mAh battery, Android 9 Pie, 4G LTE support, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an outdated micro-USB port.
HTC apparently has plans to launch the Wildfire E in Russia at first but will probably expand availability to wherever it sees a decent level of demand. But whether that includes the United States or not remains a mystery.
