As per recent reports HTC is planning an event on 20 October 2015, likely in US where they can unveil the HTC A9 Aero at a star studded event.
Here is the leaked image by Evan Blass for the upcoming HTC A9 Aero – is it just me who thinks that it looks like the iPhone 6s or does it really look like the Apple phone.
While HTC has been in news due to some of the wrong reasons – for not able to convince investors about the positive outlook of the company and at the same time has not been able to attract customers like Samsung , Google or Apple.
HTC Plan to change it and have roped in the famous Robert Dawney Jr. (Iron man Fame) for the launch and marketing of the HTC A9 Aero. HTC is looking at a brand affinity uplift program to ensure that the brand value and affinity to buyers increase with celebrity endorsements.
HTC being a premium smartphone manufacturer has not been able to connect with consumer in the current scenario who are either moving to Samsung or Apple for high end devices and to Xiaomi and Motorola for the mid range and low end devices.
HTC is also planning a large promotional event in many Cities across the globe to get the consumer share and make it large with the upcoming HTC A9 Aero.
HTC CEO and chairwoman, Cher Wang recently announced to the shareholders and HTC employees that a new Hero smartphone is going to get launched this October.
We are not expecting HTC to launch a successor to the HTC One M9 which was launched with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.
That will happen when the next generation of Qualcomm processor Snapdragon 820 comes or when Mediatek gets something profound to be used in the next smartphone.
The current smartphone in question is the HTC One A9 Aero which is a mid-range smartphone, as per the recent leaks by Evan Blass a twitter tech tipster who has revealed many other smartphones in the past has been correct.
Earlier it was believed that the HTC One A9 Aero is going to be a flagship smartphone featuring the latest Snapdragon 820 with 4 GB of RAM.
The HTC One A9 Aero will come with the 5 inch full HD display with a resolution of 1920*1080. The screen will have gorilla glass protection and will be a super AMOLED display instead of the IPS LCD display with a very high 441 PPI.
The smartphone will be powered by the new Qualcomm Midrange processor Snapdragon 617 which is an Octa –Core 64 Bit processor.
The smartphone is poised to have 2 GB of RAM which may not excite lot of readers but functionally is more than enough to run the current generation of Android OS.
The HTC Aero will have 16 GB of Internal storage and will also have the support for SD card upto 128 GB at least.
The smartphone will run on the Android Lollipop 5.1 or can be Android Marshmallow along with the HTC Sense 7.0 UI.
The HTC One A9 Aero will have a 13 Megapixel rear camera and will come with a 4 ultra Mega pixel front camera for clicking brilliant selfies.
The camera will have the OIS (optical image stabilization) and a BIS sensor.
The smartphone will have the metallic unibody design and will be one of the slim smartphones from HTC measuring only 7.0 mm.
The battery capacity is 2150 mAH which seems to be low, when compared to rival budget smartphones coming with 2500 mAH and even 3000 mAH battery capacity.
Will take all the information with a pinch of salt , as leaks are always leaks till things get confirmed officially by HTC.
