New renders of the HTC One E9+ are leaked

New renders of the HTC One E9+ are leaked
It was just yesterday when we showed you Hi-Res images of the HTC E9+. Today, a series of new renders leaked showing the device in various poses. HTC is holding its "More than One" media event on April 8th and is expected to reveal a number of new models including the HTC One E9+. Like the other phones in the HTC E-series, the phone has a plastic body. But the E9+ also sports a gold metal frame which leaves a nice looking two-tone effect.

The specs of the HTC E9+ are also fetching. The phone comes with a 5.5-inch screen carrying a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. The octa-core MediaTek MT6795 CPU is under the hood with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage inside. A 20.7MP camera adorns the back of the device, while on the front is the 4MP Ultrapixel camera that used to be found on the back of the HTC One (M7) and HTC One (M8). Android 5.0.2 is pre-installed with Sense 7 running on top. The HTC One E9+ is expected to be priced at the equivalent of $482 USD.

Among the new models that HTC could introduce on April 8th is the HTC One M9+, a premium version of the manufacturer's new flagship handset. We're looking for a 5.2-inch 1440 x 2560 screen with a Snapdragon 810 or MT6795 chip depending on the region. Most of the remaining specs match what you will find on the HTC E9+ except for the front-facing camera. Depending on where the phone is being offered, the camera on front might either be a 13MP snapper or the same 4MP Ultrapixel camera that will be found on the HTC One E9+.

Thanks for the tip!

No, it looks hideous, not even close to matching other pha lets like the Galaxy note or nexus 6 and don't expect much out of the same processor and camera powering the m9. Beside, this is gonna be priced like a flagship without the premium build.

And also, the battery would suck too, not even close to matching other flagships

I like the way you tell him no as if he stated a fact. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You might not like it & he might. Those two things can coexist.

PA, you should post the renders of the M9+ that appeared on Twitter showing it in black/gold color scheme.

The same old design. *sigh* Why don't they try to reuse the One X design! Many people, including me, loved it and would like to see it again. Everybody doesn't want metal as HTC seems to believe.

Horrible camera placement.

23. g2a5b0e unregistered

Please explain your comment. Isn't the back, centered near the top where most phones have their main camera?

Its a big giant lens on the very top. They need to move that sucker down a few cm like in every other phone. Its like how you see people wearing baseball caps fully turned to the side, it looks stupid. That is this phone.

I don't see what difference it makes. It cracks me up how picky people are about the silliest of things. Moving the camera down a few centimeters would have zero affect on its performance.

Well, I believe it will be a problem when you're holding it horizontally taking pictures, especially if its a wide angel lens, it will be a hell to use the camera.

Looks like someone finally gave a practical reason why it may not be a good idea. It's a possibility. I guess we'll have to wait until the reviews, but I think your concerns may be unfounded.

There is no excus why HTC is insisting on not shrinking those gigantic bezels. Sony was one of the most criticized OEMs when it come to bezels, and look how far they came, th Z3 has a great screen to body ratio while offering stereo speakers and waterproofing, all while keeping the device sleek and slim.

I agreed only on the first line. But Sony still has huge bezels on the top and bottom. Great body to screen ration....think again: They only had the Sony Xperia ZL, which looked great, but the Z line has horribly big bezels.

70+% doesn't point out to horribly big bezels. And i didn't say the greatest, i said great screen to body ratio.

70% is not great....It's oke.

E9+ is a lot better than M9+ because of ugly home button.

If the M9 is 9.4 mm, how fat is the plus going to be? 10.5mm Nokia brick style? Lol

If back would be all matte and camera lens would be set more to bottom, instead of completely pushing it to the top, and if it wouldn't be so humongous~~ I would actually consider buying this phone. Otherwise, it looks ridiculous.

I'd take this E9+ over the M9. Just like I would of taken the E8 over the m8. Better screen, comparable SoC and RAM. Beautiful design, same camera. But 2-3 hundred dollars cheaper.
