HTC One A9, BlackBerry Priv up for grabs at AT&T this week
The HTC One A9 is the company’s most recent offering and sits between the mid-range and high-end sector of the smartphone market. The BlackBerry Priv is also about to release and is a top- flight device gathering a massive amount of interest. Now we can tell you that both the HTC One A9 and BlackBerry Priv will be up for grabs from AT&T this week.
Starting with the new phone from HTC, the One A9 will be offered by AT&T from Friday November 6th. There are only a few more days to wait then, and it will be available from the giant US carrier for price of $99.99 on a two-year contract or $519.99 outright. Alternatively it will be sold on the Next 24 plan for $17.34 monthly, on Next 18 for $21.67 per month, or on Next 12 for $26 monthly.
Key specs of the One A9 include a Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor, 5-inch Full HD display, and 3GB of RAM. It has a 13-megapixel rear camera, 4-megapixel UltraPixel front-facing camera, and 2150 mAh battery, and it runs the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.

Moving on to the BlackBerry Priv, AT&T will also be offering this smartphone from November 6th, so this will be a busy Friday for the carrier. One of the main highlights of interest in the Priv is that it will be running Android rather than BlackBerry’s OS, and it also has a slideout physical keyboard.
The BlackBerry Priv price on AT&T is $249.99 on a two-year contract or if you want to purchase it outright it will cost you $699. The latter is the same price as from the official BlackBerry online store. Other plans will be available for those looking for alternative deals on AT&T. On the Next 24 plan it will cost you Â£24.67 monthly, on Next 18 it’s $30.84 monthly, or on Next 12 it’s $37 per month.
For a full outline of specs of this phone you could take a look at our recent specs comparison of it against Sony’s Xperia Z5 Premium. Key specs though include a Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor, 5.4-inch display with Quad HD resolution, and 3GB of RAM. A few days ago we also reported on leaks of a Verizon variant of the BlackBerry Priv, although at this stage this has not been made official.
