Description

The HTC One A9 is a beautiful, all-metal piece of tech. On its front, it has a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, bringing its pixel density up to 440 ppi, accompanied by a fingerprint sensor at the bottom. Under its hood, there is a 64-bit midrange-class Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 humming with 4 of its cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, and the other 4 – at 1.2 GHz. The phone will be available in two variants – one with 32 GB of internal storage and 3 GB of RAM, while the second will have 16 GB of storage and just 2 GB of RAM. Both variants will accept microSD cards for expansion purposes. The One A9 rocks a 13 MP sensor for its rear camera, assisted by optical image stabilization and the selfie snapper employs HTC signature UltraPixel technology to provide superior performance in low-light scenarios. Android Marshmallow 6.0 is preinstalled out of the box and a 2150mAh battery is keeping the lights running.
