After weeks of speculations, Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC has finally pulled the wraps off the One E9+ in China.

As the name suggests, the new HTC One E9+ sports a mammoth 5.5-inch QHD (2560x440p) screen and like the previous generation E9, it flaunts a plastic body. One key improvement is that, HTC has incorporated dual-tone colouring seen in the current flagship smartphone -- HTC One (M9).

Under the hood, it houses 2.0GHz Mediatek Octa-core SoC (System on Chip), 3GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt memory, 20.0-megapixel camera on the rear-side, a ultra-pixel snapper in the front and a 2800 mAh battery.

However, HTC One E9's dedicated product spec-sheet page triggered some confusion among consumers. In the entry, it shows full HD (1920x1080p) display, 2GB RAM and 13.0-megapixel rear-side camera, but this is believed to be an error. Some tech blogs, claim this might be features of the yet-to-be released 5.0-inch HTC One (E9) variant, which is expected to unveiled alongside HTC One (M9) Plus on 8 April in China.
