The One X9 is the latest in a string of handsets launched by HTC in 2015.
Following a somewhat mysterious teaser, HTC has officially announced the HTC One X9 in China. The One X9 is the latest device to make it to the company’s expanding smartphone lineup, with hardware that is similar to many of the recent high-end One devices.
The One X9 features a metal body and comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD display that HTC says has the least bezel among any of its handsets. The phone is powered by MediaTek’s Helio X10 64-bit processor, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage expandable via a microSD slot. The rear camera is a 13-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization, similar to the One A9.
Under the hood there’s a 3,000 mAh battery (and fast charging support), and the One X9 also has dual SIM slots, 4G LTE connectivity, and an UltraPixel front-facing camera. HTC isn’t saying what version of Android is running on the device, but it is hopefully Android 6.0 Marshmallow and not Lollipop.
The HTC One X9 is priced at 2,399 Yuan (roughly $370) and will come in Gunmetal Grey and Silver colors. It’s expected to go on sale in China on Christmas day.
