We’ve been telling you about HTC’s iPhone looking device ever since we spotted its leaked images and since then we’ve kept a close watch on it. However, after a series of rumours and speculations, HTC finally unveiled the One A9 which is quite similar to HTC’s One range of smartphones. The One A9 will go be available for buying from this November and has a price tag of $399.99 for an unlocked version.
It’s a hard time for the Taiwanese manufacturer who at some point of time was leading in the smartphone market. Today, however, HTC’s situation is a lot different. The company has cut heavily in jobs and is facing a dwindling market share. This is one major reason why the company is offering services like the ‘Uh-Oh’ protection plan where the company will offer a free phone replacement if the phone’s screen is cracked, damaged by water etc. within the first one year from purchasing date. The phone will also come bundled with 6 months of Google Play Music subscription. Apart from that the One A9 is bound to receive every Android OS update in just 15 days of the Nexus receiving it.
The HTC One A9 has two RAM versions i.e. 16GB with a 2GB RAM and 32GB with a 3GB RAM. Both of them support expandable storage up to 2TB. Under the hood, the HTC One A9 will make use of the brand new 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core CPU that will run on two – 1.5GHz quad-core + 1.2GHz quad-core modules. The handset will also be company’s first Marshmallow handset.
