HTC began sending out invites for a conference in China. Shaped as fancy metal plates, the Taiwanese company's invitations are dated 2015.3.11 3.17.
The two most likely candidates for a debut in China are HTC One M9 Plus and HTC One E9. Both devices have leaked on a number of occasions already. HTC One E9 was also caught passing through TENAA. A version of HTCs Sense UI developed with the Chinese market in mind is also likely to make an appearance.
HTC One M9 Plus is a version of the freshly announced One M9 flagship with slightly beefier hardware, headed by 5.2 QHD display. The Chinese market version of the smartphone is said to feature a MediaTek MT6795 chipset.
The One E9 on the other hand will feature a plastic body a 5.5 QHD display. Its rumored specs include MediaTek MT6795 chipset with an octa-core 2.0GHz Cortex-A53 processor, PowerVR G6200 GPU, and 3GB of RAM. HTC One E9 is tipped to cost around $320 at launch.
It's impossible IMO, probably a mistake.
Are you crazy? Sony announced that only Z's will get Lollipop. Even the popular mid-ranges will not get it.
Not just releasing new models without updating the old devices! Other makers like Sony and even Sammy have already updated their old devices with Lollipop. Shame on you HTC.
