Is This What HTC Will Be Showing Howard Today?

HTC One A9

Today at lunchtime I’ll be tagging along with Howard to an HTC event in downtown Toronto. The timing is curious, as HTC has scheduled a big launch of something next Tuesday, October 20th in New York City. That something is widely expected to be the HTC One A9, a new flagship once thought to be targeted solely for the Chinese market, to woo would-be iPhone users there.

Thanks to a premature listing by Orange France (since removed) we now have some official images of the device—like the one you see here—along with a price: 599.90€, which at today’s rates is equal to about $686 USD or almost $884 CAD. 😮

Unfortunately Orange didn’t leak any specs, which are rumoured to be as follows:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 617
  • 5 inch, 1080p AMOLED display
  • 16GB internal storage with micro SD card slot
  • 2GB RAM
  • 4MP (UltraPixel) front-facing camera
  • 13MP rear camera with OIS
  • Fingerprint reader
  • Metal build ~7mm thin
  • 6 available colors

So why post about this now instead of after today’s meeting with HTC? If they are indeed showing us their new flagship and its official launch isn’t until next week, then I’ve a sneaking suspicion that we’ll be signing a non-disclosure agreement with a press embargo until launch. If HTC doesn’t end up showing us their new One A9 today, I’ll be sure to let you know…
