HTC has taken wraps off a new budget smartphone named Wildfire E2 Plus in Russia. It is the latest member to join the HTC Wildfire series that was revived by the company in 2019. The main highlights of the phone include a bigger display and battery so that users can consume media without any issues.
The HTC Wildfire E2 Plus sports a 6.82-inch HD+ (1640 x 720 pixels) IPS display with a dotted notch. Under the hood, it has the Unisoc Tiger T610 processor paired with 4GB of RAM. There is 64GB of onboard storage which is the only configuration option that you will get. The phone supports microSD cards up to 512GB for storage expansion.
There is a quad-camera setup on the back featuring a 13-megapixel primary sensor with f/2.2 aperture, a 5-megapixel sensor, a 2-megapixel macro sensor, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The front camera is an 8-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture. The whole package is powered by a 4,600mAh battery and it will run Android 11 out of the box. The phone also has a fingerprint scanner, 3.5mm headphone jack, and USB Type-C port.
HTC has priced the Wildfire E2 Plus at RUB 12,990 (about $176) for the sole 4GB/64GB variant. It has been released in a single Black color option. It seems unlikely that the phone will be released outside Russia.
