HTC One A9w gets certified in China by TENAA
A variant of the HTC One A9 has been certified in China by regulatory agency TENAA. On its face, there doesn't appear to be any major difference between the HTC One A9w and the One A9, as the specs are almost exactly the same. That means that this filing shows a phone carrying a 5-inch AMOLED display, with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution.

While the chipset isn't named, the octa-core 1.5GHz CPU inside matches what is found on the Snapdragon 617 SoC, which is under the hood of the One A9. That means that the Adreno 405 GPU should crunching graphics inside the variant. The HTC One A9 has one version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage, and another with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native memory. The former is found in the U.S. while the latter model has been spotted elsewhere. The One A9w also uses the 2GB/16GB memory set up.

The 13MP rear snapper on the One A9w comes with OIS and an f/2.0 aperture. The front-facing camera is the 4MP Ultrapixel module once used as the featured camera on older HTC flagship models. The unit supports 4G LTE.

If you're hoping that TENAA's usual photographs give away the significance of the "w," guess again. The images look exactly like the regular version of the Apple iPhone 6s HTC One A9. One slight difference is that the capacity of the microSD slot is 128GB on the One A9w, compared to 2TB on the One A9.

We will have to wait for HTC's unveiling of this variant to understand what the difference is between the two versions of the phone. Now that the model has been TENAA certified, that announcement could be just weeks away.

Thanks for the tip!

"The images look exactly like the regular version of the Apple iPhone 6s HTC One A9." Unprofessional journalism. PA strikes again.

Actually, that was a joke. Whenever you see a strikeout line through a word, it is done on purpose. It was written like that because everyone says it looks just like the iPhone 6 line. My God, some of you people need to chill. Regards, Alan F.

Let's end this once and for all. HTC copied Apple. iPod Touch 5th gen came out in 2012, HTC One M7 in 2013. The only thing they "copied" is the two antennae gaps.

No you uneducated 'tech journalists' I wish you would stop making the same f**king mistake. 64GB, 128GB, 200GB, 256GB, 2TB, it's all MicroSDXC, the exact same spec. It all supports a theoretical 2TB limit. STOP SPREADING MISINFORMATION. GOD DAMMIT.

They don't know much, don't give them a hard time.
