Officially unveiled last month, the HTC E1 (model number 603e) can be bought in China now.
Prices for the E1 start at 1,699 CNY (about $275 or €211). Curiously, the handset no longer appears over at HTC China’s official webstore. Instead, HTC provides a link for ordering the E1 through Sina Weibo – here. Customers can choose to get the smartphone with 8GB or 16GB of internal memory, while the rear camera can be either a 5MP unit, or an 8MP one. Moreover, the back of the device can be customized – six color versions are available.
Dissimilarities aside, all HTC E1 models features Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Sense UI 4.0+, HSPA, dual SIM capabilities, a 4.3 inch Super LCD2 WVGA display, Bluetooth 4.0, Beats Audio sound, a large speaker on the front, dual-core 1.15GHz Qualcomm processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable internal memory, 2MP front-facing camera, 5MP rear camera with flash, and a 2,100 mAh battery.
