HTC One A9 listed online, priced at $690 USD; two sources confirm Android 6.0 is pre-installed (UPDATE)
The HTC One A9 will feature a 5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. The Snapdragon 615 chipset is under the hood, carrying an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of native storage (leaving 11GB available to the end user). There might also be a variant available with 32GB of internal memory.
A 13MP camera can be found on the back, and while it is not mentioned on the benchmark test, it is expected to come with OIS. A 4MP Ultrapixel camera is in front. This is the camera that was once found on the back of the HTC One (M7) and HTC One (M8).
These specs also match those shown on a listing of the HTC One A9, found on French carrier Orange's website. The phone is priced at the equivalent of $690 USD, which seems awfully pricey for a mid-range device.
The GFXBench results just might be the nail in the coffin for those who were hoping there was a mistake, and that the HTC One A9 was actually the high-end flagship spec'd model that CEO Cher Wang was referring to during the summer, when she told HTC stockholders that a redesigned "Hero" phone was on the way. If this does turn out to be the only phone unveiled next Tuesday, HTC is going to receive plenty of flak from its dwindling number of fans. And wait until they are asked to pay nearly seven Benjamins for a phone not even close to being a flagship model.
Thanks for the tip!

UPDATE: A newly run Geekbench test reveals that the HTC One A9 will have 3GB of RAM, unlike what we've seen in previousd rumors where the figure was 2GB. It could be that there will be a version of the phone with 2GB RAM/16GB internal storage, and another version with 3GB RAM/32GB of storage. Stay tuned!
