If latest rumours are to be believed, HTC is expected to announce the launch of HTC One M9 Plus and HTC One E9 smartphone, next month. The company has reportedly started sending out invites for an event on April 8th. The event invite features the tagline ‘More than One’ and shows the back of the smartphone with a brushed metal dual-tone build and a duo-camera setup that bears a massive primary lens below the smaller depth-sensing lens.
Purported HTC One M9 Plus specs include QHD resolution (1,440 x 2,560 pixel) display, the chipset (on at least one version) will be a MediaTek MT6795T with an octa-core 64-bit processor and PowerVR 6200 GPU coupled with 3GB of RAM. The camera on the back will be a 20.7MP unit. However, there’s a secondary camera there too. The One M9 will come with 32GB of built-in storage.
The HTC One M9 Plus dummy visible in a leaked video and the One M9 Plus unit in the live images by a Chinese blog apps, certainly indicate the smartphone is slightly larger than the already launched One M9.
Talking about the One E9, according to the TENAA listing, the One E9 (listed as HTC E9pw) will pack an octa-core 64-bit Mediatek MT6795 SoC clocked at 2GHz and 3GB of RAM. Upfront, it is listed to feature a 5.5-inch Quad-HD (1440×2560 pixels) display and include a 20-megapixel rear camera with a big camera lens that appears very unconventional in the images.
