Update: HTC has just officially launched the One E9+ in India. A bigger screen and a single camera setup on the back is what differentiates this from the One M9+ on the external aspect.

HTC has rather silently made a new phablet official, the HTC One E9+, with some beautiful specs, including a 2K display. With official, we mean that it has been officially listed on the HTC website in China, and there is no official event held for its launch.
The 5.5-inch display on the One E9+ has a 2K resolution (2560×1440 pixels), with a pixel density of 534 PPI. This will be the first time HTC is using a QHD resolution display, as even the latest flagship One M9 had a Full HD resolution display. The device is 7.49mm thick, and has a cutting edge design on the metal frame, while the entire body has half metal and half plastic.
There is an octa-core Mediatek processor with 64-bit architecture and clocking at 2.0 GHz, and the phablet has a 2GB RAM. While the device has 16GB internal storage, there is a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion, to a maximum of 128GB.
On the back, the HTC One E9+ has a 20-megapixel camera with a rather larger module. The phablet will come packed with a 2800 mAh battery, and HTC’s BoomSound speakers are as always, located on the front. There is support for multi-mode LTE, and the One E9+ also has the Wi-Fi 802.11ac.
No details about the pricing are available right now, and nothing about the availability as well. With the One M9+ being rumored and a few leaks flowing around as well, we are excited to look ahead on how different it might be, when compared to the One E9+.
