A fresh batch of leaked images of the HTC One A9 have made their way online courtesy of serial tipster @OnLeaks. The pictures show a dummy version of the phone from just about every angle you could want.
For those new to this particular handset, we were expecting it to be another flagship to sit alongside the One M9 and One M10 coming next year – but recent rumours suggest it’s going to have a much more mid-range feel.
In fact the most promising aspect of the new phone we’ve heard so far is that it’s said to be arriving with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board. If you want the latest and greatest version of Google’s mobile OS then it might be worth watching out for this one.
Start the countdown
HTC is expected to reveal all about the HTC One A9 (or the HTC Aero as it was once known) at a scheduled press event on 20 October. Previous leaks suggest you’re going to have six different colours to choose from.
Despite early speculation promising one of the most powerful smartphones in the world, it now sounds like the handset will have fairly modest specs: an octa-core Snapdragon 617 CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 1080 x 1920 pixel 5-inch screen. Let’s hope the price is a fair one.
And yes – it does look a lot like an iPhone. When HTC has something official to say about its next device, we’ll pass it on. In the meantime read up on everything we know about the phone so far.
