HTC finally adopts 2K displays with new One E9+ smartphone

After months of speculation and leaks, the HTC One E9+ smartphone has finally been revealed by the company. Almost everything about the device, from its design to specs, is already known and now, we can only fill up the empty spaces and see how accurate have reports been over the past months.

The HTC One E9+ (not to be confused with the One M9+) can be considered as the successor to the One Max which was launched back in 2013. The device is a high-end phablet that surpasses the flagship One M9 in certain aspects. The main highlight of this handset is that it comes with an ultra HD display of 5.5 inches.
