HTC One A9 rumored to sport a 1080 x 1920 resolution screen

HTC One A9 rumored to sport a 1080 x 1920 resolution screen
Before the HTC One M9 was unveiled, most thought that HTC would put a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution screen on the device. When it was announced that the 5-inch screen would once again carry a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution like the HTC One (M8) before it, the reaction was actually positive at first.

Tests have proven that unless you are looking at your screen from a distance of five-inches or less, you cannot distinquish between an FHD or QHD panel. In addition, a QHD resolution screen has quite an appetite for battery power. Still, all subsequent variations of the HTC One M9 overseas (HTC One M9+, HTC One E9+, HTC One ME) featured a 1440 x 2560 resolution display.

So when HTC CEO Cher Wang told a group of angry stockholders that HTC's next flagship handset would be a redesigned "Hero" phone, many figured that the company would be sparing no expense in terms of specs. Back in July, initial reports had the device sporting a QHD resolution screen, protected by Gorilla Glass 4. But the handset, now known as the HTC One A9, will carry a 1080 x 1920 resolution screen according to tipster Ricciolo, who sent out a tweet to that effect earlier today.


If indeed this turns out to be true, it would be a hard decision for HTC to justify considering all those One M9 variants using a QHD display. Even if there is a large contingent of phone buyers who applauded the use of an FHD resolution screen on the One M9, and might do so again with the One A9, offering a 1080 x 1920 resolution screen on a 2015 flagship model gives off the impression that HTC is holding back. And for a company in financial difficulties, struggling in a very competitive industry, that is not the image that it should want to convey.

Thanks for the tip!
