HTC is planning to launch HTC A9, or HTC Aero at a special virtual media event on Oct. 20. It will also unveil the devices which will soon receive the Android Marshmallow update. HTC Aero is rumored to be equipped Quad HD display and a screen resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. It is also expected to sport 4GB of RAM, and also a very powerful primary camera. It is also being said that this camera will be capable of shooting RAW. It is expected to be released for the AT&T users, and soon after for the rest of the carriers. It might be priced at $600.
According to the company, the devices HTC One M9 and One M8 will receive the Android Marshmallow update within this year for sure. Other devices which can expect this update are HTC One M9+, One E9+, One ME, along with Butterfly 3 and a few more. This list is yet to be confirmed.
With Android Marshmallow all set to release on Oct 5, all the tech giants are gearing up to release the firm ware update for the device under their hoods. HTC is preparing to release this upgrade for almost all of its recently released devices within this year.
The device pictured is merely a “dummy” unit for display use in AT&T stores, but the photos definitely tell us enough to confirm that the One A9 is following in the footsteps of the iPhone 6. The HTC Aero/One A9 looks like it will take HTC’s designs in a new direction over its previous high-end models. The camera on the back protrudes from the body, is housed in a circular section, and may come with a single-LED flash. On the front, a rectangular home button sits underneath the display, which will reportedly double up as a fingerprint sensor.
The press-style renders of a phone referred to as the Aero looks strikingly similar to the One A9 above, and the iPhone 6/iPhone 6S. The color options shown are named acid gold, opal silver, deep garnet, carbon gray, rose gold, and cast iron.
Assuming that contract is still unchanged, maybe HTC believes that an Android-running Aero is original enough to not represent a viable clause of the deal with Apple. Or maybe, given the problematic situations of its market and economic performance, the organization is willing to risk everything, by making its flagship phone resemble a confirmed champion. According to the credible sources with a proven background in the tech industry, this is the upcoming HTC Aero in many color choices, but regardless of how you look at it, the device looks like on of Apple’s products without a doubt. The common form and ratios (including the roughly 7 mm thickness), its plastic parts and the cutting pieces along the rear, and even some of the color choices, all point to a bigger copy of the iPhone 6.
