HTC cuts $100 from the price of the HTC One A9; deal expires today
The HTC One A9, the mid-range device that the manufacturer priced as a flagship phone, is receiving a $100 price cut that takes the handset down to $399.99. If you want to take advantage of the discount, you will need to hurry because it expires at midnight PST in the U.S. That is 3AM New York time Wednesday morning.

Buyers can select from an unlocked model (compatible with the AT&T or T-Mobile networks), or versions of the phone locked down to AT&T, T-Mobile or Sprint. The phone comes with a 5-inch AMOLED display carrying a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. That works out to a 440ppi pixel density. The Snapdragon 617 SoC is under the hood containing an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU, along with the Adreno 405 GPU. 3GB of RAM is on board, with 32GB of native storage. For those seeking additional memory, there is a 2TB capacity microSD slot that can be accessed.

The 13MP camera on the back of the handset comes with OIS and an f/2.0 aperture. The 4MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. A 2150mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed.

Hear that ticking? That is the sound of this deal disappearing at 3AM EST on Wednesday morning. If you like the HTC One A9, why not save $100 by making the purchase today? Simply click on the sourcelink.

$400-$500 nowadays are approaching high end flagship prices. And yet HTC decides to put an SD 617 in a phone costing this much. Disgraceful

Of course specs-to-price ratio is everything, that's why iPhones aren't popular right? /s

Yea the 617 has QC 2.0/3.0 and handles everything very smoothly for most people's daily tasks. Don't forget the Unlocked A9 comes with UhOh free device replacement or $100 off your next device after 1 year. So if you get the Unlocked A9 for $399. you're really getting it for $299. And you will get updates fast...mine is running current software and up to Feb. Security update.

no one cares about the $399.99 price, as if its such a good deal! The Motorola Moto X Pure is $399.99 at regular price with better specs. The phone should be $299.99 regularly to have a chance at competing. Check out eBay Daily Deals page regularly for great deals. I bought a Moto X Pure, near perfect condition, 16GB for $260. I want HTC to succeed, but they are making bad pricing decisions. Also, the LG G4 is now mostly available at $299.99 on ebay or $349.99 from T-Mobile, etc.

It is like getting the A9 for $299. because of the free device replacement, see my other comment to Tziggy14. While the Pure is a nice phone it is a bigger, clunkier device, so the A9 is a good choice for those that want fingerprint sensor, premium all metal, OIS and a sleek form factor.

Just wait for the Nexus effect to come into play, the Nexus 6 was $650 when it first came out then it went down in increments, I was able to buy 2 open box off of Amazon for $610 but then two weeks later they went down to $250 a pop "New".

Yeah, I'll wait 6 months at least after release before buying anything. Allows for price drop, unveiling of any software/hardware defects, as well as gives the boys over at xda time to work!
