Different countries in the world do end up with very different handset models from time to time, although there will always be the presence of a global version, too, of popular devices, like the Apple iPhone and the Galaxy S3 range. Well, the HTC E1 that you see above is actually also known as the HTC 603e, which means that the HTC E1 will rise above the indignity of being called the Chinese version of the HTC M4, despite the fact that you will only be able to pick up the HTC E1 in China, the world’s most populous nation.

Just how much money do you need to fork out for the HTC E1? Well, it would retail for 1,799 CNY (when converted, would amount up to $290) in China, and should be placed up for sale in due time. Right now, it is available on a pre-sale status, where those who are interested can pick it up from HTC China’s official webstore. As for your choice of colors, the HTC E1 does seem to be limited to just white, where it will arrive with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in tow alongside a 4.3 inch WVGA Super LCD 2 display, dual SIM capabilities, HSPA, NFC, A-GPS, Wi-Fi, Beats Audio technology, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 5-megapixel shooter at the back with a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera.
