Check out these leaked photos of the alleged HTC One A9 dummy unit
We’ve known that HTC was developing a “Hero” phone, ever since Cher Wang, HTC CEO, mentioned the device after the company posted dismal earnings back in June. Wang promised investors that the device would make up for the disappointing performance of the HTC One M9. The device was said to be known as the “Aero” internally, and was later revealed to be called the “HTC One A9.” We’ve seen leaked photos that allegedly show the device. Now a dummy unit of the smartphone has been leaked in new photos.
@OnLeaks, a Twitter account known for leaking accurate information on yet to be announced devices, is responsible for this latest leak involving the HTC One A9. The photos show many angles of the device, giving us a closer look at the smartphone. This latest leak shows a device that looks a lot like the One A9 we’ve seen in past leaked photos.
Initially, it was believed that the HTC One A9 would rock a MediaTek MT6797 deca-core processor. Serial leakster Evan Blass (popularly known on Twitter as @evleaks), however, claims that the device will be a mid-range smartphone and not high-end.
According to Blass and previous reports, the HTC One A9 will 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. Previous leaked photos show that the device will sport a home button with a fingerprint scanner on board. Its camera combo consists of a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with OIS and a 4-megapixel Ultrapixel camera for snapping selfies and video chat. It is said to offer 16 GB of internal storage. If more storage space is needed, a microSD card slot is on board. 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. 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. It is said to run Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box. The unannounced smartphone is said to be clad in metal and will be available in six colour options.
HTC is scheduled to hold a press event on the 20th of October, where the device is expected to make its official debut. It is expected to be available in stores sometime in November.
