HTC One A9 leaks out again leaving no surprises
The upcoming HTC One A9 has leaked out again ahead of its official unveiling in a series of photos that leave no surprises. The images confirm the presence of a microSD card slot and a micro-USB (not USB-C) port.
The One A9 is often referred to as an iPhone clone, because the back of the device is a near carbon copy of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, with an aluminum unibody that boasts integrated antenna bands, a flat back, and rounded edges.
These photos also confirm the One A9 will have an iPhone-like speaker grille with uniform holes drilled into its bottom edge alongside its micro-USB connector and headphone jack. The volume rocker and power button are situated on its right edge.
On the left edge, there are separate slots for SIM and microSD cards.
The One A9 is also rocking a home button — presumably with an integrated fingerprint scanner — that appears to be capacitive, similar to that featured on the OnePlus 2. We hope HTC’s device won’t suffer from the same grounding issue.
The AT&T logo on the back of this handset, which is actually a dummy unit rather than a working model, confirms the One A9 will be supported by at least one U.S. carrier, and suggests it is close to making its public debut now.
HTC has already scheduled an event for October 20, so it’s likely we’ll see the One A9 then. The device is expected to offer a 5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
