We saw the #OneX9 smartphone leaking out in a couple of images yesterday. The handset is now making an appearance in press images, giving us a better glimpse of the upcoming midranger from the Taiwanese manufacturer.
These images also tell us that the smartphone finally brings back the BoomSound front facing speakers, which was surprisingly absent from the One A9 handset that broke cover recently. In terms overall design, the iPhone inspiration is still evident albeit not to the extent of the One A9.
HTC is banking heavily on these premium looking midrangers and it will be interesting to see if the company will find any success with the One X9. The One A9 made the news as soon as it was unveiled, thanks to its uncanny similarity with the Apple iPhone 6. Subsequently, the company decided to offer a trade-in program for customers of the iPhone, which attracted a lot of users.
Responding to the criticism about ripping off Apple’s design, HTC flatly denied these allegations and in turn mentioned that they will continue on this path going forward as well.
Rumors have indicated that the One X9 will come with a 5.5 inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel camera on the back, an octa core Mediatek 6795 chipset, 2 or 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
