Since then, rumored specs first revealed by Evan Blass of @evleaks fame, have determined that we could be looking at a mid-range handset instead of the high-end phone that was supposed to patch up HTC's leaking ship. The company is holding a media event on October 20th, and we expect the One A9 to be the center of attention.
The latest speculation has the phone coming with a 5-inch screen, carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That works out to a 441ppi pixel density. A Snapdragon 617 SoC will power the handset, featuring an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of expandable storage. The rear-facing 13MP camera is said to offer OIS, and the infamous 4MP Ultrapixel camera (once the featured rear snapper on older HTC flagship models) will shoot selfies and handle video chats. A 2150mAh battery will keep the lights on the 7mm thick device, and previous images show a fingerprint scanner/home button in front. Android 6.0 could be pre-installed.
The HTC One A9 is said to be a metal-clad handset, and should be available in six colors. The rumored November launch appears to be on target.
Thanks for the tip!

HTC has lot its way. Keep the speaker tech, change the design(for the better not the worse) slightly, and make a great camera. Market the heck out of it. Come on HTC.

Some brands like HTC, Sony never learning. Atleast Samsung and LG trying to come up with innovative ideas in smartphones.

this is ugly as hell. htc needs to incorporate the fingerprint scanner differently. as is, the phone looks confusing when the screen is on esp. it is like you'd expect there to be capacitive buttons but nope theyre on the screen. terrible flow of design

You are funny. It looks like an iPhone and a Galaxy. Where do you supposed the Galaxy 6 got their inspiration from? Before the 6, Samsung was building plastic devices with removal batteries. SamsungPay, enough said. Funny thing, Samsung doesn't even pretend or make excuses where they are getting their are ideas, you guys do.

Samsung is a power horse when it comes to production. They purposely rode their sales with Plastic materials as far asi t was possible. Once they took design just a little seriously, the game for HTC was over

All are copied from HTC and now as his critics have good sales, Apple is the first to copy the model of HTC. so do not talk samsung inspiration. Apple also copy other size while the Android smartphone that Samsung leave the plastic and leave small screens Apple talk !! That was not his philosophy ?? change the game and just want to copy Apple and nobody can say anything.

Not too bad, just that the logo on the front needs to scram, and the battery should've been at least 2,300 mAh. The gpu is gonna struggle with that resolution as well. They skipped the 808 because either they're attempting to reduce financial risk, or trying to maximize profit...or both -_-

If this is what htc is putting out now there is no way their next flagship is looking good. The galaxy alpha was Samsungs midrange phone in attempt the change the design and next phones turned out fine.
