The images have surfaced via Twitter by the user @OnLeaks. It almost looks like a smartphone which is in the market right now. Yes, the iPhone lineup has the same design. Coming down to the A9, the phone in the phone is merely a dummy, as mentioned by The Verge. HTC One A9 images have leaked and it definitely looks like the iPhone.
The camera is behind the phone in the middle, on top. The camera is slightly protruding like the iPhone. The bottom has the speaker, microphone and what looks like a Micro USB port. It will also be using the standard 3.5mm jack. Instead of the front-facing stereo BoomSound speakers, there is a fingerprint scanner with the home button. The right edge has the volume rocker and the lock button. The left edge has two metal slots – one for a MicroSD card, the other for a SIM card. The top edge, according to 9to5Google, has the IR blaster. Coming to the antenna bands, it was HTC, not Apple, to have the plastic antenna in an aluminium body.
The recent leak also shows the range of colors that it will be coming out with from @evleaks. With the certification at FFC and GCF, the phone will have price and specs which will compete with the current smartphones in the market. Until then, everything is just be a rumour. The phone will be launched on October 20th and it is going to be a “virtual” event. It will be streamed on HTC’s website.
