No matter how you slice it, the newest member of the HTC portfolio, One A9, is one good looking handset, to the nine. With "bead-blasted"
brushed metal chassis, and a dual-tone finish available in a Carbon Gray, Opal Silver, Topaz Gold and Deep Garnet, the One A9 certainly stand out as a uniquely HTC design.
This time around, the company outfitted its newest midranger with optical image stabilisation for the camera, and a fingerprint scanner, ready to brawl with any of the midrangers, mainly from China, that have been offering these goodies for a while now, plus it set the price to match.
For $400, you are getting the premium design feel you see in the slideshow below, 1080p display, 13 MP OIS camera, BoomSound, a dedicated audio DAC, finger scanner, and 32 GB of internal storage, not to mention that there is a microSD slot for expansion. Not many handsets can brag with such a setup at this price, so HTC might be really on to something here. Check out the official pics below.
