Photo collage of the HTC One E9+ reveals glossy looking plastic device with 5.5-inch QHD screen

Earlier this month, we showed you some images of the unannounced HTC One E9pt (A55). The specs made sense only if the p in "pt" stood for Plus. That appears to be the case as a new photo collage of the device calls it the HTC One E9+. Made with a glossy plastic body, the phone doesn't have the curve of the HTC One M9 in back which means that it is more svelte than HTC's new flagship model. The 5.5-inch screen is carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution and is powered by a 64-bit octa-core 2.2GHz MediaTek MT-6795 CPU.

The One E9+ will have 3GB of RAM inside, with 32GB of native storage. There will be a 20MP camera on back. The front-facing camera will either be a 13MP shooter, or it will copy the One M9 by using the 4MP Ultrapixel camera that once upon a time was fixed on the rear of the HTC One (M7) and HTC One (M8). A fingerprint scanner will be on board, and a 2800mAh battery will be in charge of keeping the lights on. Android 5.0 with Sense 7.0 is pre-installed.

The HTC One E9+  is expected to be priced for the equivalent of $480 USD and speculation has the unit getting launched in China at the end of this month.

The processor is much worse than sd810. It has octa core cortex a53 and a aged G6200 GPU which can't even keep up with snapdragon 800 in graphics. I'm not sure how that weak GPU will handle QHD

Is HTC out of the red, where do they get all the money to make all these phones? They all fall in the same price bracket and it is only March. Samsung makes a lot but they are a massive conglomerate.
