HTC has announced a new smartphone to get the company’s financial woes back on track. The device in question is the HTC One A9, while many sources will call the device an iPhone clone, I prefer the word iPhone-lookalike because that’s where the comparisons end.
The HTC One A9 sports a 5-inch FHD AMOLED display with 2.5D Gorilla Glass protection. It is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor with Adreno 405 GPU paired with either 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB space of internal storage. There is a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 2TB (that is Terabytes if you are wondering).
For photography, the One A9 has a 13MP main camera with F/2.0 aperture and OIS; the front camera is an Ultrapixel (4MP) camera for selfies. The main camera captures RAW images and has a Pro mode for manually editing photos and the likes.
The HTC One A9 supports 4G LTE connectivity (LTE Cat. 7), has a fingerprint sensor embedded into the home button and is backed by a 2150mAh battery. It measures 145.75 x 70.8. x 7.26 mm in dimensions, weighs 143grams, has a micro USB port instead of USB Type-C Port for charging and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS with HTC Sense UI ontop.
The One A9 will be available starting the first week of November from HTC.com, retailers and carriers for a price tag starting at $399. Available colour options includes – Carbon Gray, Deep Garnet, Opal Silver and Topaz Gold. Others also reported are Rose Gold and Cast Iron.
