HTC’s future can’t be too bright even though a recent financial report did bring some good news. The company is still working on new smartphones however, as evidenced by a report out of Russia.
A retailer in the country has information on what is called the HTC Wildfire E, a throwback to the Wildfire S of 2011. The yet unannounced model supposedly has a 5.45-inch IPS display with an HD+ resolution in an 18:9 ratio.

There’s a Unisoc (formerly Spreadtrum) SoC in charge, the SC9863 in particular, with an octa-core Cortex-A55 processor in a 4×1.6GHz+4×1.2GHz arrangement. The budget nature of this Wildfire is further emphasized by the 2GB of RAM though the 32GB of storage is still fairly decent. The phone will boot Android Pie.
Moving on to the other specs, the phone features a 13MP primary cam on the back with a supplementary 2MP shooter, likely for depth mapping, while a 5MP front-facing module is there for of selfies. A 3,000mAh battery keeps the lights on and it charges over microUSB.
One color option has been confirmed – blue, but others could be in existence as well. Pricing hasn’t been disclosed, nor a timeline for announcement or availability, and you may have also noted that there aren’t pictures of it yet in circulation.
