The HTC One A9, the latest Galaxy S7 rumors, and the latest DROID Turbo 2 leaks: weekly news round-up
Once again, it is time for our weekly news round-up, where we put the most interesting stories from the past seven days for anyone who needs to catch up. Let's start by rewinding to last week's highlight event – the announcement of the HTC One A9. While the phone is not exactly a high-end model, it is to replace the M9 in the U.S. as HTC's flagship. Costing $400 unlocked, albeit for a limited time, the One A9 blends premium design with an adequate specs sheet and a decent set of features, including a 13MP camera with OIS, Android 6.0 at launch, and support for high-res audio. 

In other news, the Samsung Galaxy S7 might come with a 20MP camera, according to speculations. The rumor was sparked after the announcement of a new ISOCELL camera sensor, measuring 1/2.6" and sporting 1.0 micron-sized pixels. 

Last week also brought us a handful of leaks revolving around Motorola's yet-unannounced smartphones for Verizon. These are the Motorola DROID Turbo 2, which is expected to feature "shatter-proof" glass protecting its display, and the Motorola DROID MAXX 2, which is shaping up as a rebranded Moto X Play. Both phones should be made official on Tuesday, October 27.
