Interestingly, the spec page on HTC’s website mentions a 1080p display, 2GB of RAM and 13-megapixel camera. This could either be a typo, or the company has accidentally revealed details for the One E9.
While there is no mention of a price or availability date, HTC is hosting an event in China on April 8. The company is widely expected to take the wraps off the One E9+ as well as the One E9 at the event.
