A new listing on the Google Play Console reportedly points to the imminent launch of a new HTC Wildfire E series member. This Lite variant apparently runs on an appropriately budget MediaTek processor and has 2GB of RAM. It may even have a traditional chin and forehead on its front panel.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

HTC recently resurrected its vintage-Android Wildfire product name with new variants that mostly have entry-level specs. These include the new E sub-series, which have most recently appeared in EEC certifications and are thus destined for the Russian market. Its latest iteration, however, has turned up on the Google Play Console instead.

It portrays this rumored new E Lite as one that has definitely eschewed most modern smartphone trends, those of a cosmetic nature included. It has a full sensor-bar instead of anything like a notch or a punch-hole, balanced by a bezel on the other end of its screen with no contents.

This display is described as a "normal" 1440x720 in resolution, which, with its pixel-density of 320, could be less than 6 inches in diagonal length. The new Wildfire E Lite also has 2GB of RAM and runs on the ARM Cortex-A53-powered MediaTek Helio A20 processor. All in all, it appears this new HTC phones will set its sight on the bottom (or possibly standard-issue work-phone) end of the market.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
