Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC, well-known for its premium build quality phones has taken a back seat in the past years due to an onslaught by Chinese smartphone makers. However, the company is not giving up as a leak reveals press renders of three of its new upcoming low-end mid-rangers – the HTC Wildfire, HTC Wildfire E Plus, and Wildfire E1. This is in addition to the Wildfire E that leaked earlier making it a total of four devices. The Wildfire series is a long-forgotten range once available back in 2011, but it appears HTC is rekindling the flame. Will it spread like wildfire? You be the judge.
Starting with the better endowed of the three, the Wildfire has a 6.217-inch (1520×720) display, MediaTek Helio P23 CPU, and 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage. There’s a combo of 16MP+5MP rear shooters, a 16MP selfie camera, and a 3500 mAh battery, as per the leak.
The Wildfire E Plus tones it down a bit with a 5.99-inch (1440×720p) display, a Helio A22 CPU (4×2.0GHz), and 2GB RAM +32GB storage. It still has a dual-camera setup but with lower megapixel count – 13MP+2MP rear shooter, and a 5MP selfie camera. It’s powered by a 3,000mAh battery.
The Wildfire E1 sits somewhere between the above two with a 6.088-inch (1560×720p) display, MediaTek Helio A22 CPU (4×2.0GHz) and 3,000mAh battery. There’s 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM and a solitary 16MP rear shooter and a 8MP selfie snapper.
