HTC One X9 exists, but the specs are wrong, reliable sources say


HTC One X9

HTC One X9 is a budget friendly smartphone, not a top-tier device, reliable sources debunk over the weekend surfaced rumour.

HTC is indeed working on a new smartphone namely One X9 (not its final marketing name though) whose codename is HTC E56, according to Evan Blass (known as @evleaks on Twitter). The notorious tipster/leaker is also debunking all recent spec rumours linked to a possible high-end device, having this to say in a tweet post recently:

22 hours ago @evleaks  All wrong. E56 sports a Mediatek SoC & 5.5″ FHD display. Memory is just 2GB/16GB, camera 13MP/4UP (OIS), w/ a 3000mAh battery.
It appears that the HTC One X9 is real but the specs are almost entirely wrong. Instead of a 5″ QuadHD display, the phone apparently feature a 5.5″ FullHD screen, an unknown MediaTek chipset, only 2GB of RAM and not 3/4GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage, Ultrapixel front-facing camera, 13MP main camera sensor on the back with OIS and a 3,000 mAh battery.
Evan Blass claims are backed up by another reliable source, @LlabtoofeR Twitter account, who’s also offering extra information on the E56 handset. According to him, the E56 (One X9) will be positioned lower than One A9 on the market, and we will see it launch in the first quarter of next year, ahead of One M10 debut (HTC’s 2016 flagship smartphone).
