HTC One A9 images leak giving us a better view of the mid-ranger
Now that HTC has unveiled a pair of high-end phones, does anyone still care about the HTC One A9? Specs allegedly belonging to the device were leaked earlier today after the phone supposedly was run through the AnTuTu benchmark test. Now, we have a series of photos that show off the design of this mid-range handset.

When HTC CEO Cher Wang said last June that the company would be launching a "Hero" phone in October, the assumption was that the HTC One A9, which was first dubbed the "Aero," would be a high-end model that would make up for the poorly received HTC One M9. It was a tweet from tipster Evan Blass a couple of weeks ago that spilled the beans about the handset.

The HTC One A9 is said to employ 2.5D glass with rounded edges and the device does offer a metal build. We expect to see the handset unveiled during a media event in October that will be held in multiple cities. The company will reportedly be shelling out big bucks to promote the phone.

Agreed. They should have made the fingerprint scanner a physical home button and get rid of the on-screen buttons. This is such a waste of space, and it looks ugly too.

It doubles as both, when the screen is off it turns the screen on and when the screen is on it takes you back to the home screen.

HTC never change. Never learn. Soon we will say, there was a company named HTC. HTC always reduce specs. Like battery ram or camera. Too bad. I was a hard HTC fan at the time of nexus one,HTC hd2, desire time. Too bad HTC good luck

Why Samsung's home button have become so popular as a shape for fingerprint scanner? I looks quite good on Samsung smartphones, but it makes other smartphones uglier.

I'm beginning to think that it is no longer worth it to even read any more posts about HTC. Yet I still do it because I'm hoping that one day, maybe one day, HTC will get it right again :-(

hTC just goes totally wrong after Cher Wang headed to the position. She is a complete business person, not a smart phone lover. She does not care how good a smart phone she should make. She cares only and solely how much marketing she should do to a smart phone. A sparrow is a sparrow. It would never turn into a phoenix even if how eloquently a person speaks. Holding huge media events worldwide? Sorry, it's just a deceptive and disgusting activity for me.
