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!

Is this HTC M A9, no, I meant HTC One A9, better than "Rumors say OnePlus is working on a “Mini” smartphone. The smaller device is rumored to feature a 5-inch 1080p display, a MediaTek Helio X10 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front shooter and a 3000-3100 mAh battery." ???? Can someone be honest and tell me.

While the A9 will be costing $650, the oneplus mini will grease your palms at only $250. My economics teacher tought me that the value of money is what money can buy. I can 2 oneplus mini and still have $150 left for beer. HTCCCCC.

That price has to be wrong. Or is PA converting European currencies again when they shouldn't? Either way, I was psyched about the A9, but HTC has had a way of letting me down at the last minute, so...

They're convering Euro's to USD. It'll probably be around $500.

When you're running something as simple as iOS, you tend to not have many hindrances, so congrats to iPhones for functioning properly, I guess? It would be severely disappointing if they couldn't even handle iOS.

Can you explain this midrange post to me? The A9 professor has shown to literally be years ahead of the competition. While the resolution is a sore spot, the significant amount of optimization on the iPhone allows for it to have a certain amount of specs for it to fly. For example, 2 GB of RAM is in the iPhone and the 5X, does that make the 5X mid range? The iPhone only needs 2 GB to run buttery smooth due to the integration of the OS and hardware, something that an Android does not allow due to the way it is designed. The iPhone has a fantastic camera, build, and is an all around great experience. I don't understand why people ride the specs like a rodeo when in fact the specs mean very little. That's like complaining about a PS3 compared to a PC, but because of the way the systems are built you can get a game like The Last of Us on it that looked (and still looks) amazing. Good luck getting that on 512 MB of RAM on a PC.
