Back in June, HTC CEO Cher Wang had mentioned that the company would launch a Hero phone sometime in October. A few weeks ago, a report stated that the HTC Aero could be launched as HTC A9 with MediaTek s deca-core chipset onboard. The Taiwanese company has put up a teaser on Weibo announcing a launch event on September 6 at the ongoing IFA 2015.

From the leaks that have come across, the HTC Aero (A9) could be powered by a MediaTek Helio X20, a 10-core processor paired withMali-T880 MP4 GPU and 4GB of RAM. It could pack a QHD display with 2.5D curved edges and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.
The smartphone is also expected to sport an improved camera with support for capturing RAW quality photos. In terms of design, the Aero (A9) could come with a metal design and curved glass at the back.
While the name of the handset is still a mystery, Aero is most likely to be an internal codename. Soon after HTC put up the teaser, leakster @EvLeaks tweeted that the Aero could be called HTC One A9 when it launches officially.
