HTC One A9 specs in new leak stir things up
The HTC One A9, originally codenamed the HTC Aero, is drawing a lot of attention at the moment. We’re seeing leaks arriving on an almost daily basis before it’s expected unveiling later this month. Now some HTC One A9 specs in a new leak tell us a little more about the upcoming smartphone and might create quite a stir.
There have been murmurings about HTC One A9 specs for some time now, but the picture is now slowly building up ahead of its launch. A few days ago a benchmark spot gave us some information and just yesterday a leak said that it would be running Android 6.0 Marshmallow rather than Android 5.1.1 Lollipop as previously thought. If accurate, this would make it one of the first non-Nexus devices to be running Android 6.0 out of the box.
Now well-known and often reliable leaker @evleaks has taken to Twitter to reveal some more HTC One A9 specs. These differ from some of the unconfirmed specs we previously saw in the benchmark appearance, which included a Helio X20 deca-core processor and 4GB of RAM. This new info could really stir things up, as according to @evleaks the One A9 (Hima Aero) will be sporting a Snapdragon 617 processor and only 2GB of RAM.
HTC One A9 (Hima Aero): SD617, 5" FHD AMOLED, 2GB/16GB, 13MP/4UP OIS BSI, 2150mAh, microSD, fingerprint, metal, ~7mm, 6 colors. November.

Further specs from the new leak include a 5-inch AMOLED display with Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, 16GB of internal storage (expandable with microSD), a 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and BSI sensor, and a 4-megapixel UltraPixel front-facing camera. The latest leak also says the HTC One A9 will have a 2150 mAh battery and fingerprint sensor.
Yet more information includes the phone having a metal build that’s 7mm thick, available in six color choices, and coming in November. If these new leaked HTC One A9 specs are the real deal they suggest a smartphone that’s rather more mid-range than expected. It’s anticipated that the phone will be made official at an event taking place on September 29 so we should soon find out for sure.
