HTC is not exactly doing all that well as far as smartphone sales go. This Taiwan-based company has been having issues turning a profit for quite some time now, and need to find a way to change that soon. The company has announced a number of high-end devices this year, most of which are available only in Asia, unfortunately. Either way, HTC is reportedly working on two new high-end devices, the HTC O2 which will allegedly launch in 2016 and be a successor to the One M9, and the HTC ‘Aero’ or ‘A9’ as it has been called lately, which is expected to launch this October or November.
The alleged HTC A9 image has leaked yesterday, and surprised a lot of people. The back cover render which leaked actually showed off a design which resembles the iPhone quite a bit, not to mention that it had a rather odd placement of the main camera. A number of people thought this is a fake render, but today we have something that might change your mind. If you take a look at the provided image above, you’ll notice the alleged HTC A9 posing next to the iPhone 6. On the left side of this image you can also see the alleged HTC A9 handset’s front side, which contains HTC’s logo, as many other devices do. The 2.5D curved glass seems to be placed on top of HTC A9’s display, and, unfortunately, this image isn’t all that good so we can’t see that many details up front.
According to previous rumors, the HTC A9 will sport a 5.5-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display along with 4GB of RAM. The device will reportedly going to be powered by MediaTek’s X20 64-bit deca-core processor, and will sport a really capable rear-facing camera, quite probably a 21-megapixel one. The phone will be made out of metal, and it will reportedly be announced in October, and quite probably launch in November. We still can’t confirm any of this info, it’s all based on leaks, but not too many people will be happy with the design of this thing if the leaks are accurate. Either way, stay tuned for more info.
