HTC One A9 launches on Sprint on November 6 (it will be more expensive than the unlocked version)
HTC today announced the One A9, a handset which, according to the company's CEO, can be a good alternative to Apple's iPhones. While the A9 is indeed designed to compete with the newest family of iPhones, it's not as expensive as Apple's devices. More exactly, the One A9 with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space costs $399, and can already be pre-ordered, unlocked, in the US. What about availability via carriers? Well, for now, only Sprint announced that it would sell the One A9.

Sprint's HTC One A9 will be available to buy starting November 6, becoming the carrier's first handset to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.There are various options to get the One A9 from Sprint: on lease, for $20 per month over 24 months (though you won't own the phone after all leases are paid), on Easy Pay, for $29 per month over 24 months (you will own the phone after 2 years), on contract, for $199 upfront, or off contract. Interestingly, if you want to get the One A9 off contract and off lease from Sprint, you'll have to pay $696 upfront - way more than the price of the handset when sold unlocked by HTC.

Sprint will offer the One A9 in two color versions: Carbon Gray and Opal Silver. Just like the unlocked model, Sprint's A9 features a 5-inch 1080p display, LTE, a metallic body, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, fingerprint scanner, microSD card support, and a 2150 mAh battery. On the back, the A9 has a 13 MP camera, while its front-facing camera is a 4 MP UltraPixel one. So, is anyone planning to buy HTC's new handset from Sprint?
