HTC One E9 Rumor Thread

Recommended Posts

So far, I've only seen mention of this device being released in China...at the end of March (so, very soon). Any word on whether or not it'll land in the US and (even better) on our favorite yellow carrier? The specs on this thing look pretty outrageous.

I don't think it will but thats just my opinion.

The E8 was released on Sprint https://shop.sprint.com/mysprint/shop/phone_details.jsp?deviceSKUId=83500080 but I don't think it was a big seller, so who knows.

Good point. Though, where the E8 was positioned downmarket from the M8, the E9 appears to be positioned above the M9. Very curious, indeed.

The E8 was spec for spec close to the M8. M8 minus the metal build and IR. Otherwise same specs. Same screen, same processor.

True, though it was positioned a bit down market (plastic build). Just interesting to me to see a new E-series phone that's clearly positioned above (not below or even at) the M-series level. I think it's great - just wishing they'd bring it to Sprint!

    • I posted the below on the essential subreddit.  Wonder if others on sprint have the same issue?   "It is well noted that the essential has reception / radio problems but today, when I roamed on to US Cellular, it completely abandoned 1x and connected to LTE only. Which is fine when connected to Sprint because the phone can pass text messages over LTE. However, while roaming, the phone would not send or receive text messages and could not make or receive calls because it was latched to USCC LTE and needs a 1x connection to do this. My 5X (and I assume every other phone), when it connected to USCC LTE, would somehow get notification of a text or call and idle back over to 1x to take care of things and then dump the 1x connection until needed again (signal check shows all of this happening). Same deal when I would try to send a text as well. Seems the essential is dead in the water under these conditions and just can not bring it self to go to 1x when needed while roaming, at least on USCC. I do not have other roaming carriers up here to test with. I am sure we do not need to go into the problems with being completely unable to make a phone call in the very large areas that Sprint uses USCC to roam on. I can accept if it was just the area I was in. So in that case, any other Sprint users roamed on USCC LTE without any voice or text problems recently? I am on Oreo Beta for what its worth."
    • Twitter might give you better results. 
    • Essential's reception to the reception issues was not very receptive because their reception at the time was poor and they did not receive full receipt of the reception issues. AJ
