Brand new HTC One A9s revealed, should be announced at IFA 2016

16

Last year, HTC raised some eyebrows by releasing the One A9, a mid-range, metal-made Android smartphone that many saw as having an iPhone-like design (though that's debatable, since one could argue that the iPhone borrowed design elements from older HTC handsets first). Now, according to Venture Beat, HTC is almost ready to unveil a successor to the One A9, reportedly called One A9s.

Allegedly pictured above, the HTC One A9s doesn't look too different from the A9. However, we can notice that its rear and front cameras have been relocated: the selfie camera (a 5 MP one) now sits on the left, as does the rear camera (a 13 MP unit). As you may know, on the old One A9, the rear shooter had a central position.

There's no word on what other features the One A9s is expected to offer, though it's probably safe to assume that it's got a fingerprint scanner on the front, just below the display (we can actually see that in the render above). It's said that the HTC One A9s will be officially announced at IFA 2016 in Berlin, on September 1, so we'll soon find out much more about the device.

Right now, HTC is selling the One A9 for $429 unlocked, and we're guessing that the One A9s will be offered for a similar price. Interested?
