What we know so far
Initially, many believed that the HTC One A9 would be a high-end device, with one report claiming that it would rock a MediaTek MT6797 deca-core processor. More recent leaks, however, claim that the One A9 would be a mid-ranger rather than a high-end smartphone.
We’ve learned that the HTC One A9 would sport a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD). This works out to a pixel density of 441 ppi. Under the hood is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 64-bit octa-core processor with an Adreno 405 GPU, coupled with 2 GB of RAM. In the photography department, the device is believed to feature a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with OIS and a 4-megapixel Ultrapixel camera for snapping selfies and video chat. Previous leaked photos show that the device will sport a home button with a fingerprint scanner on board. The smartphone is said to come with 16 GB of on board storage. If this is not enough, users can always slap in a microSD card. To keep the lights on, the device is said to come with a 2,150 mAh battery. It is said to be 7 mm-thick. The unannounced smartphone is said to be clad in metal and will be available in six colour options.
So will the HTC One A9 run Lollipop or the latest version of Android. Although the Taiwanese phone maker is yet to spill the beans on the matter, it has teased that its upcoming device will be one of the first devices to ship running Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). So we’re almost certain that the One A9 will run Marshmallow out of the box.
