Plenty of rumors have pegged HTC as prepping to launch a new flagship by the end of the year, dubbed the HTC One A9. The move isn’t terribly surprising, considering the lack of sales from the One M9 as well as HTC’s new focus on flagship devices. Now leaker @LlabTooFeR has revealed that the One A9 will come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box in addition to HTC’s Sense 7 overlay.
While not shocking news, it does seem to confirm that the One A9 will launch after Android Marshmallow, and will likely be one of the first devices to ship with it out of the box. In the past, we’ve seen manufacturers launch phones with outdated versions of Android upon launch, so it’s good to see HTC working to keep its phones up to date right from the get-go.
We’ll keep you posted on any further developments regarding the HTC One A9.
