This is the HTC One X9

This is the HTC One X9
While HTC has yet to say anything about the rumored One X9, we're now certain of the handset's existence, as this has just been approved by China's Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center. The Chinese certification body also revealed a list of specs, and four images of the One X9, thus confirming that the previously leaked images were indeed showing the real device.

The HTC One X9 measures 153.2 x 75.9 x 7.99 mm, weighs 174 grams, and seems to have a body that's partially made out of metal (though we might be wrong).

Sporting a 5.5-inch IPS display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, the X9 is not exactly a high-end smartphone. It's powered by an octa-core 2.2 GHz processor (unknown maker), further featuring LTE connectivity, 5 MP front-facing camera, 13 MP rear camera with dual LED flash, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory. At the moment, the new smartphone is running Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.

It's said that HTC is planning to release the One X9 in early 2016, a few months before its upcoming One M10 flagship (of which we don't really know much). Would you be interested in buying the HTC One X9? If yes, how much will you be willing to pay for it?

I kinda like the frontal design, but not so much the back. They should have just given it the A9 design treatment for its rear end.

HTC CEO: "Maybe we should mix the design of Huawai Nexup 6P, and people will not notes the design of iPhone 6 in our new X9." ... "But let's selv it for $799, then we can be different..."

HTC A9 is a great value on sale at $399, not so at the $499 price tag. The X9 would make sense at $450, and seems quite comparable to the 6P. Have a feeling HTC will bungle this, and price the X9 at $499 or even $599 MSRP and then offer a sale price randomly. As long as the X9 doesn't follow in the 6P's footsteps and bend like a Pepsi can, I think it's fine.

"Sporting a 5.5-inch IPS display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, the X9 is not exactly a high-end smartphone." If a 5.5" 1080p IPS display is the basis for "not exactly a high-end smartphone" then I'm a little confused as to why Phonearena lists the iPhone 6s Plus as the #2 Best Smartphone...

Double standards.

Contrarian point: you're comparing to completely different operating systems here. Is tall for an Asian the same thing as tall for an African-American?

you're comparing two*

If we talk about Android handsets, since there are plenty of high-end devices with Quad HD screens and 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, it would be a bit unfair to include the One X9 in the same high-end category.

You do realize that your statement, being from a representative of PhoneArena, now creates a disparity between the numerical ratings you give to Android devices, and the ones you give to Apple devices?

16gb internal and 2GB RAM.... 13mp camera.... come on HTC, by 2016 this kind of spec won't even exist on a low end phone, and you want to position this as a midship?? 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal will be spec for midship next year.. flagship should be 4GB and at least 32GB pair with a 20mp camera with a 3500mah battery. Please HTC, hit the bullseye in 2016.

What is this phone? A small step up from the a9? I want a flagship htc device!

I detract my previous statement, this is not worth $500. Meizu Metal is almost the same and it costs $200. Only unfortunate thing besides no global availability is that it runs Yun OS. What happened to HTC's loyalty to new, fast updates Android phones? I hope 5.0.2 is a mistake.

Front design is looks like fake leaked M9 back in the days. If this true it looks awesome

the only thing that htc one a9 lacks as a midranger is the underperforming processor and most importantly battery,, i think htc should have gone with snapdragon 800 in terms of processor and upped the battery to around 2900-3000. Well this could have made a9 tempting while retaining the same price....

Tbh this should have been the A9. Other than the blessed Boomsound...real world usage is more so the same. Performance (I REALLY HOPE!) gets a bump with battery as well.

That 2.2 Ghz processor is most likely the Helios X10

Htc be cool iphone is iphone... One after one phone with iphone design. Please focus on your own phones as you prepared amazing phones in past e.g prices, one desire phone = $600 that should be $200.

But nobody wants to acknowledge this dude!! iPhone is so lucky to have such fans and consumers.
