Remember when the HTC One A9 was made official and HTC said that its $399.99 price as a “limited time offer”? Well now we know just how limited it is.
HTC says that the One A9’s price will go up to $499.99 at 12:01 am on November 7. That means that the company’s new Android phone will cost $100 more than it does right now.
The HTC One A9 isn’t the most high-end phone around, but at $399.99, it’s a solid unlocked option. It’s got a metal body, respectable features, and a promise from HTC that it’ll get Android OS updates within 15 days of Google pushing them to Nexus devices. At $499.99, though, the One A9 will face some new competition. The One A9 does still have some special features going for it, like Uh-Oh Protection and its smallish size, so HTC could focus on those features to push the A9.
What do you think of the HTC One A9? Will you be buying one before its price goes up on November 7?
