Once upon a time, HTC flagships were the main opponents of Samsung flagships. Once upon a time, everyone could, without a twinge of conscience, accuse Apple of copying HTC, because it was the One (M7) smartphone that was the first device on the market with an all-metal body and characteristic antenna stripes.
However, those days are long gone. It is very difficult to meet HTC smartphone on the street now, and so far there is no tendency for the company to recover. Besides, now HTC itself can copy someone else’s design. And if the latest devices of the company simply looked the same as hundreds of other models on the market, then the upcoming Wildfire E Lite will differ from them.
At the same time, as we can see, it will be very similar to the iPhone 7 Plus. Judging by the name, we are waiting for a budget model, so the case is hardly made of metal. And it is very doubtful that such a smartphone will become at all popular.
