Not only is the HTC Wildfire real, there are several versions of it. A few days ago, the Wildfire E leaked, an entry-level phone named after the petite 2011 model. Now images and specifications for three more models have surfaced – a larger Plus, a simpler E1 and a slightly more premium model.
This one is slated to have a 6.2” screen, making it the largest of the bunch. This screen has 720 x 1,520px resolution (19:9) and a notch for the 16MP selfie camera. Around the back, there’s a dual camera – 16 + 5MP (the function of the second module is unknown).
With a MediaTek Helio P23 chipset, the Wildfire is also the most powerful phone in the lineup (8x Cortex-A53 CPU, Mali-G71 MP2 GPU). It comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB built-in storage. The 3,500mAh battery is the biggest in the family.
HTC Wildfire E
The first phone that leaked, the E has a 5.45” 18:9 screen (720 x 1,440px) and is powered by a Unisoc SC9863 chipset (8x Cortex-A53) with 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage.
No notches here, the 5MP camera lives on the top bezel. On the back, there’s a 13MP camera plus 2MP depth sensor. The Wildfire E has a 3,000mAh battery.
HTC Wildfire E Plus
The “Plus” moniker is for the size rather than features – the screen grew to 5.99”, keeping the 720 x 1,440px resolution. The chipset meanwhile dropped down to a Helio A22 with a quad-core A53 CPU. It is hooked up to 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage.
The HTC Wildfire E Plus has the same camera setup as its sibling, 13+2MP on the back and 5MP at the front. Despite the increase in size, the battery capacity remains at 3,000mAh.
HTC Wildfire E1
This has a slightly larger screen than the Plus, a 6.1” panel with 720 x 1,560px (19.5:9). It uses the same Helio A22 chipset but with 3GB of RAM this time around (still 32GB storage). The battery capacity is the same, 3,000mAh.
The camera is a bit of an upgrade too, 16MP on the back and 8MP in the notch up front.
All four models are dual SIM phones with LTE connectivity. They have 3.5mm headphone jacks and a fingerprint readers.
There's no word on a launch date or pricing for these phones (though "soon" and "low" are good guesses).
Note that HTC has apparently filed several more trademarks with the Eurasian Economic Commission – Wildfire E2 and E2 Plus, Wildfire E3 and E3 Plus, Wildfire R and R Plus.

HTC never disappoints when it comes to design, they're unique in some way regardless of price.
HTC is trying to gain market-share, these phones are not aimed at enthusiasts at all... Sucks for the HTC fans tough but the fact is HTC does not afford to only listen to this crowd during these hard times...
