HTC One A9 to be the final name of the deca-core Aero smartphone

HTC One A9 to be the final name of the deca-core Aero smartphone
The HTC Aero is an unannounced smartphone that's supposed to be officially unveiled sometime later this year as one of the world's first devices to be powered by the deca-core (that's 10 cores) MediaTek Helio X20 processor.

Not long ago, we heard that the Aero could be called HTC A9. However, it looks like this isn't the complete name of the upcoming handset. @evleaks today posted an image suggesting that the Aero will be known as the HTC One A9. This name makes more sense than just HTC A9, since the One brand is well known around the world.

Besides a deca-core processor, the Aero / HTC One A9 should feature a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, 4 GB of RAM, and a rear camera with support for RAW photography. The handset might cost around $500 - $600.

It's said that the Aero / One A9 will be released in the US via AT&T, though we don't know exactly when this is supposed to happen. For the record, MediaTek said that devices using its Helio X20 processor would not be available before early 2016. So maybe the One A9 is going to be announced this year, but won't hit shelves before 2016. We'll see what happens.

Earlier this week, we saw a couple of photos allegedly showing the HTC Aero in the wild, but for now we can't be sure of their authenticity. Anyway, you can take a look a them below.
