We already know that HTC is holding a launch event on October 20, where it is expected to take wraps off a smartphone running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Here, the smartphone in question is likely to be the widely leaked HTC One A9 (Aero). The dummy images of the alleged HTC One A9 (Aero) have been leaked online offering a good look at the smartphone’s design.
In the fresh leak, @onleaks has posted pictures of the smartphone’s dummy unit, clicked from different angles. These photos offer a closer look at HTC’s metal-clad smartphone with iPhone-like design. From what we’ve seen in earlier leaks, the smartphone features a metal unibody design.
On the front, there is a thick bezel, just below the screen. It accommodates a home button with integrated fingerprint sensor and is flanked by capacitive back and task switcher button. On the back, you have a protruding camera lens at the top centre with LED flash.
The left edge shows a power / sleep button and volume rocker, whereas the left edge has microSD card and SIM card slot. The microUSB, 3.5mm audio jack and speaker grill is placed at the bottom. Sadly, HTC seems to have done away with Boomsound speakers, may be that needed to be done to accommodate the fingerprint sensor and capacitive keys.
HTC One A9 specifications and features: The specifications of HTC One A9 include a 5-inch full HD (1080p) display. It is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 617 SoC paired with 2GB of RAM. Also on the offer is 16GB of onboard storage, expandable using a microSD card.
On the camera front, it’s expected to come with a 13-megapixel rear camera with a BSI sensor and optical image stabilization, and a 4-megapixel front snapper. Connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS are expected to be present. With a 2,150mAh battery, the smartphone will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS with HTC’s Sense UI atop. The smartphone is expected to come in six color variants including acid gold, opal silver, deep garnet, carbon gray, rose gold and cast iron.
