Remember the HTC Wildfire? If you’ve forgotten, we’ll forgive you. It’s a really, really old device from way back in the day that helped build the foundation for the Google Nexus One and spawned off a pretty successful Wildfire S sequel.
It looks like HTC might be revitalizing that phone for another run with the newly rumored Wildfire lineup of devices. There are four leaked models, so this might become a staple in HTC’s future plans.
These phones will undoubtedly look a little sleeker and slimmer than the incredibly dated design of the original Wildfire (remember that weird trackball thing?) but they’ll be spanning a few different price points, too. There will be three Wildfire E devices, including E1, E2, and E3, with all of them also featuring Plus variants, as well as a Wildfire R and Wildfire R Plus. The actual naming scheme for these should be using Wildfire E, and the most high-end model will simply be called the Wildfire.
The HTC Wildfire, as seen above, will sport a 6.2-inch 720p display, MediaTek Helio P30 CPU with 3GB of RAM, and a premium, glossy finish. Nothing here will really be flagship caliber, but if that’s priced well it could end up being an attractive mid-range option.
There’s also the Wildfire E with an octa-core Spreadtrum CPU and 2GB of RAM and a 5.45″ display, with the Wildfire E Plus bumps up to a MediaTek CPU and a 6″ display. The Wildfire E1 is even slightly bigger at 6.1″ with a notched display but the same MediaTek Helio A22 chip, 3GB of RAM, and a 16-megapixel camera. All of the devices have 32GB of storage and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
These devices will certainly be competing in the budget-friendly and mid-range categories, so don’t expect anything super flashy. They also probably won’t be releasing all over the globe, since HTC’s new strategy seems to be a little more focused.
