HTC brings its entry-level range back to life, with a new HTC Wildfire E2 arriving in Russia amid a cloud of nostalgia and with much to prove
It seems that HTC wants to play its last match ball in the mobile market, and it is that after reviving its medium and high ranges with the new HTC Desire 20 Pro and HTC U20 5G, it is now its successful HTC Wildfire range which comes back to life also with a new basic cut smartphone.
We talk about the new HTC Wildfire E2 that has been presented in Russia exclusively, without official announcements or pompous presentations, but with a modern design and contained specifications to keep prices at bay as high as possible.
In fact, this new Wildfire will be sold at a price of 8,760 rubles in Russia, just over 100 euros at current exchange rates, without having made public the intentions of the Taiwanese manufacturer regarding its launch in other markets.
Be that as it may, we do know that citilink.ru has already listed it and that Google has included it in the Play Console, so the device is certified by Google Play plus all these components:

A basic HTC mobile, with restrained hardware but a very modern finish and an approximate price of 100 euros more than attractive … What if the Taiwanese in the end do manage to reinvent themselves?

As you will see, it is nothing from the other planet, but yes a modern device in appearance and with a very very attractive price, which in markets where HTC continues to retain its brand power could make a lot of sense and better reception.
In fact, I would love for Taiwanese to bet on the Spanish market in a decisive way, because Nokia already proved that nostalgia works and for its part HTC in the past taught us that they did know how to make quality mobiles.
In this case, we all know that The HTC Wildfire E2 will not go down in history as the best smartphone of 2020but I do personally hope it helps HTC to find the way back to an industry that always awaits you with open arms.
In Spain and Latin America do not wait for this device, at least for now, although we will try to inform ourselves about its expansion if it finally occurs. We don’t have too much hope but hope is certainly the latter is lost.
Finally, you should know that is available in black and blue colors with a slightly weathered back finish, and with a line texture in the paint that gives it a pretty good look … What do you think about it?
