It was earlier reported that the HTC One A9 (also known as the Hima Aero) is a mid-ranger, based on the configuration details tweeted by the credible tipster Evan Blass. But now, an online Dutch retailer has revealed the price of the upcoming device, specific to the Netherlands.
According to the retailer Central Point, the HTC One A9 will set the buyers back by 706 euros (VAT included), which is an equivalent of $805, at today’s rate. Going by Blass’ tweet, the HTC One A9 specifications will apparently include a 5.0-inch AMOLED display, bundled with a FHD screen resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. This display configuration translates to a humble pixel density of 441 ppi.
Furthermore, the One A9 will reportedly be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 chip, in combination with an octa-core Cortex-A53 processor, clocked at 1.5 GHz and backed by only 2GB of RAM. For graphics, the smartphone has the Adreno 405 GPU and the hardware unit will also house Qualcomm's X8 LTE modem, which is capable of providing Cat. 7 speed. This means, the device owner can get a download speed of up to 300 Mbps and an upload speed of 100 Mbps. However, the speed also depends on the carrier support, notes GSM Arena.
As far as the design goes, Blass said, the One A9 will reportedly come with a metallic exterior and the thickness of the device will be about 7 mm. HTC is believed to make this handset available in six different colors. Other key One A9 features include an inferior 2,150 mAh battery unit and a fingerprint sensor for authentication.
When it comes to memory capacity, the HTC One A9 will apparently come equipped with 16GB of built-in storage and microSD card support for further expansion. There is a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera unit, in addition to a 4 megapixel front-facing shooter for selfies and video chats. Notably, the primary camera comes with support for Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).
The HTC One A9 is believed to be launched on Sept. 29, according to GSM Arena. Following the release, the device could hit the stores in November, as tweeted by Blass. In any case, readers should note that there is no official confirmation on the HTC One A9 price, specifications or release date so far.
