Looks like the HTC One M9 has already been bested, and by HTC itself. Its HTC One E9 has just leaked, and it boasts a bigger, better screen than the firm's latest flagship.
The handset has a 5.5-inch Quad HD screen, with a resolution of 2,560x1,440 pixels. That puts the M9's 1080p display to shame. Inside is a Mediatek MT6795 processor clocked at 2GHz.
Otherwise, it's pretty similar to the M9. It has the same 20-megapixel camera, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Though it has a flatter design in place of the M9's curves.
The device was revealed by Chinese telecommunications regulator TENAA.
The One E8 was a plastic, lower-specced take on the One (M8).
But these specs suggest HTC is taking a different tack with the One E9. Or they could relate to the HTC One M9 Plus, which would be a super-sized version of its current flagship, with a slight spec boost.
HTC is thought to have an announcement scheduled for this month. We'll bring you more as we get it.
