It been quite a rumour mill for the HTC these past days and we just found out that the company silently launched the HTC One+ with a 5.5 inch screen, which has a 2k resolution and other high-end features.
This time around the @upleaks has some news that the manufacture may have a regular HTC E9 in the pipeline. It is said to have a bit smaller screen, thus making it a more compact device.
The device looks very similar to the just announced bigger brother. It will have the same colour options, which include white, black and grey. What is more, the device spots a typical HTC design language and looks very similar to the good ol’ HTC One M7 as far as the front goes. Although the device does not have a full metal body, but it still has a premium metal frame surrounding the smartphone.
The leaked pictures definitely look like the official press renders, so it may be that the company will launch this device very soon. Pricing and availability is not yet known, but we presume that it will first be available in the Chinese market at the affordable price tag.[source]
