Jack Tong (董俊良), president of HTC North Asia, told a press briefing at the launch that the Taiwanese company hopes that releasing more flagship phones in the same year will help attract more consumer attention away from the launch of new iPhones, as well as expand its high-end offerings for telecom operators. One source of comfort that we were able to gain from this disappointment was the fact that HTC One A9 comes with 3GB of RAM, and the smartphone will be running Android Marshmallow when it is officially available to purchase.
The HTC One A9 is said to be the company’s recent attempt to improve smartphone sales after the disappointing sales performance of its other flagship devices.
HTC has taken the wraps off its latest HTC One smartphone.

On the front, this device has 13MP front-facing camera with BSI sensor, f/2.0, 28.2mm lens, 1080p video recording.
TmoNews reader Evan pinged me today to say that his HTC One M9 is getting a 532.26MB update to version 2.11.531.19. Rumours now suggest that the new device will have a Snapdragon 617 processor, 5-inch Full HD screen and just 16GB of on-board storage – none of which in the same bracket as higher-end Android phones already on the market. The BoomSound speakers are still present, and connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi, GPS, and 4G LTE.
While images have surfaced for the Aero A9, the HTC Butterfly 3 and the M9e remain unseen on the internet.
Rather than host a live show with an opportunity for hands-on time at the same venue, HTC is opting for a completely digital reveal. Comment below and let us know.
