Not smitten with yesterday’s new Nexus phone announcements? HTC has announced that it will be holding a “virtual event” on October 20 to unveil its “newest HTC One.” The invitation doesn’t give us any clues about the new phone, save for a faint outline which matches that of the yet unannounced HTC One A9. Rumors have indicated that the HTC One A9 will launch in the US, Europe and Asia and will be backed by a substantial marketing campaign. This speculation is backed up by the fact that HTC shared the details of the launch event on its global, US and UK social media accounts.
Based on what we’re heard about the HTC One A9, the phone isn’t expected to outclass the HTC One M9. Instead, the One A9 will offer decent specs wrapped in a refined design — hopefully at a reasonable price.
