HTC has announced several new devices in the past several months, including its new flagship, the One M9, and a new One M9+. It’s not finished with launching new devices, however, and fresh documentation from China’s TENAA suggests another phone is coming down the pipeline soon.
Engadget noticed a device dubbed the “One M9e,” in the TENAA, which appears to be a plastic version of the One M9+. The site suggests this new model might eventually make its way outside of China, where the One M9+ is currently limited to, which means some folks might finally be able to get their hands on a version of HTC’s first smartphone with a Quad HD display.
The One M9e appears to offer a 5.2-inch Quad HD screen, a 20-megapixel camera, 3GB of RAM, a front-facing UltraPixel camera and a microSD card slot. The processor isn’t detailed beyond its clock-speed of 2.2GHz, but Engadget suspects it’s a MediaTek chip that’s similar to the processor used in the One M9+. Photos appear to suggest it is built out of plastic, which means we should see a lower price at launch.
There’s no word on when the One M9e will make its debut, and HTC hasn’t confirmed any details, but we’re holding out hope this version will be sold in more markets than the One M9+.
