The HTC One X9 is a device we have heard plenty about, it will be a design oriented mid-range smartphone that is classic HTC but probably not enough to drag the company out of trouble. The One X9 passed through TENNA last month, so we know it will be launched soon, and today there is a leaked image of the smartphone to assess.
As we said, classic HTC, which means a very eye catching smartphone, although we think the company’s design language is getting a little stale despite the obvious build quality and attention to detail still employed.
As for specs, the HTC X9 will be a large smartphone with a 5.5-inch screen with 1080p Full HD resolution, an octa-core 2.2GHz CPU with 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of native storage with expandable micro SD card space. Elsewhere there is a 13 megapixel camera around the rear and a 5 megapixel front facing lens, while Android 5.0.2 Lollipop will serve software duties.
This will be a mid-range smartphone that will fill the gap between now and HTC launching the One M10 flagship, which will probably be launched in February during the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona. The M10 is expected to arrive with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 820 processor and we hope a lovely new design.
