Last month, we reported that HTC was planning on bringing HTC Wildfire back. The company certainly did bring the lineup back. However, the specifications are not very impressive. The smartphone has been launched rather quietly with a modest chipset, basic design, and dual-sensor rear camera setup.
Design and Display
The smartphone features a typical HTC smartphone look with a textured polycarbonate back, pill-shaped camera setup, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
HTC wildfire E2 is built around a 6.22-inch IPS touchscreen with a waterdrop notch and 720 x 1550 pixels resolution.
Internals and Storage
The handset is powered by a modest octa-core MediaTek’s Helio P22 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage.
It comes with Android 10 right out of the box.
On the camera side, the device sports a dual-sensor rear camera setup with 16 MP + 2MP configuration. The set up is capable of recording 1080p videos, and it offers photography features like beauty mode and face detection.
For selfies, it is equipped with an 8 MP single sensor.
Battery and Pricing
Like most entry-level smartphones, HTC Wildfire E2 comes with a big battery. It is fueled by a 4000 mAh battery without fast charging. According to the company, once charged, the phone can offer up to 20 hours of talk time, 25 hours of music playback, and 6 hours of video playback.
It is currently available for sale in Russia and costs $135.
