HTC Aero to sport a QHD panel with 2.5D glass, protected by Gorilla Glass 4?
Disappointing sales of the HTC One M9 have put pressure on HTC to come up with a new handset that can compete next fall with models like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Apple iPhone 6s. To that end, the company recently announced that it would have a newly redesigned "Hero" model ready for unveiling on October.

A recent report said that the new flagship phone is going to sport a camera that features support for RAW files, and will come with an aperture of f/1.9. This will allows users to take high quality pictures even under less than optimal lighting conditions.

HTC is apparently going full-out with the Aero. According to the same source that leaked the news about the new breakthrough camera technology, the re-designed flagship will be equipped with a 1440 x 2560 QHD screen of unknown size. While HTC chose to stick with a 1080 x 1920 FHD screen on the HTC One M9, other variants of the device such as the HTC One M9+, do feature a QHD screen. In addition, the display on the Aero is expected to feature 2.5D glass, and will be protected by Gorilla Glass 4.

While we suggest taking this information with a grain of salt, we also have to add that if these tidbits of leaked information are true, HTC could be building a true contender.

Thanks for the tip!
