The HTC One E9+ is the latest smartphone from the Taiwanese manufacturer to enter the Indian market. Design wise the device looks quite similar to the HTC One M9+ but has some changes underneath. It sports a 5.5 inch phablet with a QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) which takes the pixel density up to 534ppi.
The HTC One E9+ is the successor to the older HTC One E8, in terms of specifications the device is a huge upgrade. The phone sports the same MediaTek Helio X10 Octa Core processor that the One M9+ has and gets 3GB of RAM on board. Performance wise the device appears to be quite powerful on paper and should be able to glide through tasks effortlessly. It also gets 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded via the microSD card slot that accepts upto 2TB of storage. The site also hints that there may be a 16GB version that may be offered on sale.
The camera on the device is a 20 megapixel sensor and is quite huge. It protrudes out and may prevent the phone from resting flat on its back. The sensor is capable of recording 4K video which is the highest resolution possible on a mobile device at the moment. At the front the phone has HTC’s own Ultrapixel camera with a f2.0 aperture making it impressive for selfies. The front facing camera is capable of recording at FullHD resolution (1080p).
The HTC One E9+ runs on HTC’s Sense UI on top of Android Lollipop and comes with tons of customization from HTC. The device is a Dual SIM device just like the older One E8 and has two nano SIM ports. The HTC One E9+ misses out on the Duo camera setup and the fingerprint sensor on the M9+. It houses a big 2800mAh non removable battery which should provide at least one full day of run time. The One E9+ also gets 4G LTE connectivity and support both Band 3 and Band 40 that are currently functional in India. The HTC One E9+ is priced at Rs. 36,790 in India and is available in Meteor Grey, Gold Sopia and Rose Gold.
