As we get nearer and nearer to HTC’s October 20th announcement, extra HTC One A9 leaks are pouring out. Dummy devices of the telephone have ended up in the hands of OnLeaks, and he’s gracious sufficient to percentage them with us.
The leaks don’t display so much that we didn’t realize, however we do get affirmation of a few necessary options. O fingerprint scanner is on board, and it seems like we’re getting backside-positioned audio system as an alternative of the entrance or rear-dealing with selection.
The fingerprint scanner is sitting underneath HTC’s emblem on the backside entrance bezel. The USB port additionally appears to be uncovered, and it seems like a normal microUSB port as an alternative of the Type-H we’re starting to see on smartphones.
Sitting on the most sensible of the tool is an infrared beam, which has develop into a staple function amongst HTC flagships. Looking off to the aspect unearths quantity and tool buttons which each take a seat on the similar aspect, the former sitting above the latter.
Flipping it to the different aspect presentations off other exterior ports — one for a SIM card, the different for a microSD card. Kudos to HTC for locating a approach to come with that during what seems to be a steel unibody layout.
The rear is lovely immediately ahead itself. The lone digital camera lens sits to the left of a twin-tone flash. Meanwhile, HTC’s emblem might be entrance and middle, at the same time as AT&T’s emblem in this specific type is somewhat smaller and sitting close to the backside.
One of the belongings you’ll realize approximately the telephone is that it comes off taking a look very iPhone-ish. It’s now not that Apple owns the twin-stripe layout on the rear — HTC’s performed that ahead of them, even — however there’s one thing approximately the general curvature and look of the telephone that subtly whispers “iPhone.” Nothing improper with that, in fact, however value mentioning.
We’re now not anticipating the HTC One A9 to be an general beast, however it will have to transform a high-quality mid-vary handset that any one with a discounted price range might feel free to possess. Here’s what we’re anticipating way to leaks from the rumor mill:
- Snapdragon 617
- 5-inch 1080p AMOLED show
- 16GB inside garage with micro SD card slot
- 2GB RAM
- 4MP (UltraPixel) entrance dealing with digital camera

- Metal construct ~7mm skinny
- 6 to be had colours
Will it's the hero that may store HTC’s flailing (and failing, most likely) telephone industry? Let’s wish so, as a result of we’d hate to peer a producer who can construct hardware that appears this just right all of sudden disappear.
