Images from the upcoming HTC One A9 were leaked to the public to show that the new Android smartphone resembles a lot to Apple’s design on the new iPhone 6.
The HTC’s One A9 is scheduled for release on October 20, but Twitter account OnLeaks revealed on Saturday images on the device’s aspect that gave the public a look of what to expect later this month.
The images show the design of a curved aluminum unibody with inlaid plastic lines in the antennas resembling the well-known iPhone 6. It incorporates a raised circular camera hump and the speaker machined holes at the bottom of the phone.
An accusation on HTC for copying the iPhone design result unfair when remembering it was HTC, not Apple, the first to use plastic antenna channels embedded in an aluminum unibody design. But certainly the new smartphone shows us that HTC has been inspired to change its priorities from sound equipment to a better image. The front-facing stereo BoomSound speakers are gone and now replaced by little speaker holes on the bottom edge of the device and now a fingerprint sensor is in the front.
The color seen in the images is one of the six variants that are going to be released so costumers get to match the exact color fitting their personal preferences. There is no information on which colors will be available.
The HTC One A9 is not expected to be HTC’s high technology release but more of a mid-range device with a competitive price to match. Specifications are still unrevealed, but performance is expected to include a 5-inch Full HD screen, Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable storage. Also, an UltraPixel camera on the back is expected along with a fingerprint reader embedded in the home button. For now, all there is to expect will be revealed on October 20th with HTC is to unveil its latest smartphone.
