Dual SIM HTC 603e officially called E1, runs Android Jelly Bean
The HTC 603e that we told you about several times until now is officially called HTC E1. So, in the end, it looks like the handset is not just a Chinese version of the HTC M4 – although it is indeed made for China.
The HTC E1 costs 1,799 CNY (meaning about $290, or €224) in China, and should be available for purchase there pretty soon.
At the moment, the new smartphone is on pre-sale, and interested customers can order it here at HTC China’s official webstore. The E1 is currently listed only in a white version:
As previously reported, the E1 603e runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (with an update to 4.2 probably scheduled for later this year). Other features include: Sense 4.0+ UI, a 4.3 inch WVGA Super LCD2 display, dual SIM capabilities, HSPA (for one SIM only), NFC, A-GPS, Wi-Fi, Beats Audio technology, Bluetooth 4.0, 5MP rear camera with LED flash, 2.1MP front-facing camera, dual-core Qualcomm processor (clocked at 1.15GHz, according to the official specs), 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. The handset measures 128.5 x 66.9 x 9.8 mm, weighs 130 grams, and has a 2,100 mAh battery.
It is unclear if the E1 – or any version of it – is going to be released outside China. But we will let you know in case HTC has such plans.
