Mr. Blurrycam is at it again. This time around it’s the rumored “superphone” from HTC, which the company has hinted at in the past, and is rumored to see the light of day later this year. The phone you see here is supposedly that phone, called the A9 or Aero, depending on who you ask.
The images are pretty low quality, so there aren’t a lot of details to really pick apart here. The front of the handset, viewed on the right, seems to show off 2.5D curved glass edges, which is an interesting addition. On the back, we can see how the A9/Aero compares to Apple’s iPhone 6, and the similarities are pretty obvious. HTC has decided to apparently move the camera above the antenna band, though, unlike the One M9 where it rests below the line.
The camera housing is also round in this model, rather than square, as it was on the One M9.
As far as specifications go, the rumor mill suggests the A9/Aero will feature a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, with 4GB of RAM and a 10-core MediaTek Xelio X20 processor under the hood. The battery is said to measure in at 3500mAh. Unfortunately, it’s unknown just how many of these details are going to be in the final design, or if the final model will ever be released.
What do you think of the A9?
