With just 10 days to go before HTC’s next big event, the expected star of that show has leaked out once again.
@OnLeaks has shared several images that purportedly show the AT&T version of the HTC One A9. The phone in these photos is actually a dummy unit, a non-working model meant for use in stores. That said, we can still make out lots of details of the One A9 from this dummy.
Walking around the hardware of the One A9, we can see that it’s got volume and power/lock buttons on its right side, microSD and SIM slots on the left, and what looks to be an IR blaster up top. On the bottom there are cutouts for the speaker, a headphone jack, and the microUSB port. Rounding out the phone’s exterior features are a fingerprint reader on the front, a protruding rear camera, and some HTC and AT&T branding.
The HTC One A9’s spec list is rumored to include a 5-inch 1920×1080 AMOLED display, Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot, and a 2150mAh battery. The protruding rear camera is reportedly of the 13-megapixel variety, while the front shooter is said to be a 4-megapixel UltraPixel camera. The One A9 is also expected to run Android 6.0 with HTC’s Sense 7 UI out of the box.
So yeah, the HTC One A9 is shaping up to be a mid-range phone, not a new flagship like some folks might’ve been hoping for. It looks like a nice enough device, though, and if HTC can get the One A9 on several carriers and price it competitively, the One A9 could help HTC’s less than stellar financials.
