HTC One A9

HTC had a surprisingly short launch of their new device the HTC One A9. They did not talk much about the specs, but do not worry we have you covered there. The HTC One A9 will be available from November for $399.99 (base model).  The device looks and feels quite premium with its metal uni body and comes in 4 colors; Topaz Gold, Carbon Gray, Opal Silver and Deep Garnet.

What makes this device set itself apart from the previous HTC’s is the “Finger Print Scanner” in the front. Not only that, this device will be the first Non-Nexus device to come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, out of the box. HTC has promised that you will get the next update 15 days after Google rolls out for its Nexus devices. Only time will tell if HTC will be able to hold its promise.  Lastly, the HTC One A9 comes with Dolby Audio Surround for best in class sound quality. That being said, without making you wait any longer, check out the full spec sheet below:
