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.

  • Resolution:
    • 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 440 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

  • FCC measured SAR:

    FCC measured SAR - Working closely with federal health and safety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
