HTC launched the Butterfly 3 and HTC One M9+ Aurora Tuesday. Based on the rumors, the only top-of-the-shelf device left for announcement is the “HTC One A9.” As it turns out, HTC has already sent out invitations for a special event where the aforesaid device is expected to be launched.
HTC will reportedly be unveiling the One A9 “virtually” on Oct. 20 at 12:00 p.m. EDT. The virtual event can be watched via the URL - “www.htc.com/launch.” Phone Arena said that the email with the attached invitation has the following tagline: "Meet the new Marshmallow from HTC on 10/20."
As far as the rumored HTC One A9 specifications go, the device will apparently flaunt a 5.0-inch AMOLED display, aided by a Full HD resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. This display combination trickles down to a pixel density of 441 ppi. Under the hood, the handset will be powered by a (Qualcomm Snapdragon 617) chipset, working in tandem with an octa-core processor. The graphics side of things will apparently be taken care by Adreno 405 GPU and backed by 2 GB of RAM.
Moving on to the memory specification, the One A9 will reportedly come equipped with 16 GB of in-built storage space and microSD card slot for further expansion. The rear-facing camera unit is believed to be a 13-megapixel “Sony” sensor with OIS support. In addition, a 4-megapixel UltraPixel shooter unit will be mounted at the front for selfies and live video chats.
A fingerprint scanner will apparently be affixed on the home button located at the tail-end of the handset. In addition, the entire configuration will be held together and powered by a modest 2,150 mAh battery unit.
Speaking of color, HTC will apparently offer six different hues starting November. Meanwhile, a slew of HTC One A9 photos have also surfaced showcasing the alleged handset’s fingerprint scanner.
