HTC One E9 phablet Take on iPhone 6 Plus
Before the official announcement of the all-new HTC One M9 earlier this month countless leaks and rumors all pointed towards the idea that HTC actually had two devices in the works. The One M9 they just revealed, and a bigger 5.5-inch HTC One Max or similar device to take on the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4. This week, alleged images of that device have surfaced.
Those who were looking for a new and bigger HTC One smartphone this year may be underwhelmed by the same 5-inch 1080p display on the new HTC One M9, but something bigger and better could be coming soon. We have heard rumors of a new HTC Max phablet for a few months now, and this could be our first look at the phone.
In 2013 along with the original HTC One was an HTC One Max, however, the phone wasnt too successful and didnt get an update in 2014, and HTC never released a follow-up. This year though, the company could be looking to offer something similar to take on Apples big iPhone 6 Plus, the incoming LG G4, and more.
This week a brand new device was spotted and photographed going through some Chinese certifications, and is currently being called the HTC One E9. The 9 confirms its a new generation device like the HTC One M9, but its obviously a different model and aimed for different markets.
