As we progress into the second half of the year, a few smartphone manufactures have started unveiling flagships and high-end smartphones while others are gearing to follow suit.

In the same vein, HTC has discreetly announced a new smartphone today in Russia. The device called HTC Wildfire E2 is dubbed a mid-range handset, but debuts with some quite attractive features.

The HTC Wildfire E2 sports a 6.2-inch IPS LCD panel that delivers a Full HD+ resolution of 720 x 1560 pixels. Approximately, it weighs 174 grams. The smartphone has a polycarbonate build and measures 154 x 75.9 x 8.59mm.

Under the hood, the Helio P22 chipset will power the HTC Wildfire E2. Alongside the chipset is 4GB of RAM. The device will debut with 64GB of native storage and a MicroSD card slot which doubles as a second SIM slot.

One of the cons of this device is its hybrid SIM slot feature. You have to sacrifice a SIM slot if you need to make use of a MicroSD card.

Talking about cameras, the mid-ranger features an 8-megapixel lens on its front side for taking selfies. Behind the device, a dual-camera consisting of a 16-megapixel primary shooter and a 2-megapixel sensor is present. 

The camera on the Wildfire E2 features autofocus, face detection, beauty mode, an LED flash, and can record videos in 1080p.

As for connectivity, the phone has a dual SIM slot, Wi-Fi, GPS, 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, Dictaphone, micro USB port for charging, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The HTC Wildfire E2 comes equipped with a moderate 4,000mAh battery. When fully charged, it offers up to 20 hours talk time, 25 hours of music playback, and 6 hours of video playback.

The phone retails for RUB 9,990 in Russia, that’s about $135. The phone will be available in Black and Blue colour choices.
