Liveblog: HTC's One A9 announcement
HTC is back for another round this year, as it's now expected to unveil a brand new entry in its One family – the HTC One A9. This new smartphone, which is expected to act like a slightly watered-down version of the One M9, has been long discussed due to its uncanny resemblance to the iPhone 6. Will this really be the case when it lands, though? The good news is that we'll know soon enough. In just about an hour, HTC will kick-off the introduction of the new phone, and you can bet you'll be able to find all the details, right here at PhoneArena.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. First things first, it's liveblog time! Here, you'll be able to follow the announcement, one step at a time, complete with commentary from yours truly. Meanwhile, here's where you can watch the event livestream itself, if you're looking for the motion picture experience.

$400 unlocked actually isnt bad. if they said anything more than that it'd be an issue

When HTC staff lying to keep their job, even though the company's fate is debatable.

HTC has always been skilled with their product designs. It's cringe-inducing to see that their "hero phone" is blatantly ripping off the iPhone 6/6s.

most of the design was actually copied from the m7 by apple with the iphone 6 launch. (antenna lines, size, unibody). fingerprint sensors first appeared on the motorola atrix 10 years ago. circular cameras are pretty much the way cameras are. the curved sides and flat back are really the only similarities that htc didn't already invent.

Might very well be the last phone I will ever see from HTC. Hope somethings unexpected come up besides that A9.
