A recent rumor had claimed that the smartphone could be named the HTC A9, but it looks like they only got it half right. The new leak from @evleaks confirms that the ‘Aero’ will also be part of the HTC One family of devices. It is expected that HTC will drop the ‘One’ naming convention only with its 2016 flagship device, dubbed the ‘02’.
As for the One A9, it is expected to pack a 5.5-inch sized display, MediaTek deca-core Helio X20 SoC, and a ‘groundbreaking’ rear camera. An alleged spy shot of the device was posted online recently, next to the Apple iPhone 6. Apart from the Gold option seen in the spy shot, the smartphone will also be offered in a Dark Gray color option.
The A9 is expected to be unveiled sometime in October this year. In the US, AT&T is believed to be the first carrier to offer the device.
