A recent leaked image of the HTC One A9, revealed how much it resembles the iPhone 6S in terms of design.
The Verge had reported that the leaked images were photos of the dummy HTC One A9 phones for display in AT&T stores. And now with the curtains being officially lifted off the HTC handset, its likeness to the iPhone 6S has become even more evident.
However, even with these rumors doing the rounds for quite some time now, the Taiwanese company went on and finally made the launch announcement of this much-awaited high-end One A9 device, as reported by TXN.
This smartphone sports a full HD 5-inch screen in its 145.8mm x 70.8mm x 7.3 mm chassis and features a metal-brushed shell. It also features the Corning Gorilla Glass 4 scratch-proof glass.
It comes powered by the Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 617 chipset and hides an Adreno 405 GPU, under its hood.
The two different RAM versions for the device read out to be 2GB or 3GB. While the storage onboard for the former variant is 16GB, the latter is available with 32GB storage. There is a MicroSD card slot on each and the device supports up to 200GB external memory, which is really neat.
Other aspects that stand out include the smartphone arriving with an Android Marshmallow right out of the box. Naturally so, same as the case of other manufacturers tweaking the OS, One A9 is coupled with HTC’s Sense UI.
What more? Well, a fingerprint scanner in the front for quick unlocking which is also used for Android Pay when making purchases on Google Play. As for the snappers, the front one is a 4MP while there is a 13MP shooter on its back.
The HTC One A9 is expected to launch in the first week of next month and should arrive with a price tag of $399.
Fans can come back to know more about where the device stands once it’s out in the wild.
