HTC reportedly working on four Wildfire-branded phones
« on: July 17, 2019, 05:22:54 AM »

HTC’s smartphone business has dramatically cut its output over the past few years but now it seems to be preparing for a resurgence. Just one month after the company introduced two new devices, leaked press images have now revealed that a further four smartphones are on the way.

The first model of the bunch also looks set to be the most basic offering. As revealed yesterday, the HTC Wildfire E will feature a small 18:9, 5.45-inch display that boasts an HD+ (1440 x 720p) resolution. Paired with this should be a plastic rear panel that houses a large HTC logo, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a horizontal camera module in the top-left corner. Speaking of which, leaked information suggests there will be a main 13-megapixel snapper on the rear which will be accompanied by a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a 5-megapixel selfie camera.

Overall, the HTC Wildfire E looks a lot like a cheaper, more compact version of last year’s HTC Desire 12+. This assumption is further solidified by the processor – HTC has replaced the Snapdragon 450 with a low-end octa-core chip by UniSoC – and the RAM count which now sits at just 2GB. Nevertheless, the 32GB of internal storage used last year has apparently been retained.

As you’d expect from a 2019 smartphone, the Wildfire E will ship with Android 9 Pie pre-installed alongside HTC’s custom interface. Other features include a 3,000mAh battery, 4G LTE support, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
