HTC has been accused of copying Apple’s iPhone 6/6s design with its latest smartphone, the One A9. That’s not exactly a fair accusation however, since the iPhone 6 has many of the same design aesthetics as some of HTC’s previous One flagship phones, particularly the One M7 which launched in 2013. Regardless of where the design inspiration for the One A9 originated, one thing is certain: the One A9 is a good-looking smartphone with an all-metal unibody design and four attractive colors, which include Deep Garnet, Carbon Gray, Opal Silver, and Topaz Gold. All drama aside, the HTC One A9 is a mid-range handset that is powered by Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor. This processor includes... Read more...
We’re beginning to wonder if HTC execs are asleep at the wheel as hits every pothole and speed bump in the road ahead at full speed. The company first came under fire for allegedly ripping off the design of the iPhone 6/iPhone 6s with its new One A9 smartphone — a claim that it shrugged off, citing that it was in fact the victim of Apple’s Xerox machines. Next, the company caught heat for introducing the One A9 at a price tag of $399, only to jack the price up to $499 earlier this month. And if that wasn’t enough, the company stated earlier this week that shipments of the smartphone have been delayed, and customers that ordered red and gold variants won’t have their smartphones ship until later...

Ever since we first saw renders of the One A9 leak to the web, we all took notice of its similarity to the iPhone 6 (and the iPhone 6s). Some thought that the overall shape of the smartphone and the plastic antenna lines running across the back of the device bared more than a passing resemblance to the Apple’s best-selling smartphone. However, many were quick to point out that it wasn’t HTC that copied Apple — it was the other way around. HTC brought out the One (retroactively named the One M7) in 2013 which featured an aluminum unibody design and those same, thin antenna breaks in the rear of the case. So it could be said that the One A9 is simply an evolution of the One M8 and the One M9 that... Read more...

We've said it before and we'll it again, it's insanely difficult to keep a secret in this day and age of the Internet. Think about the last time there was a product launch without a leak beforehand. It happens on occasion, though more often than not, the Internet provides an early glimpse of what's to come. Today the Internet is sharing what look to be official press renderings of HTC's forthcoming One A9 handset, plus a spattering of specs. Though HTC hasn't officially announced its One A9 phone, Orange France let the cat out of the bag by inadvertently posting live a product page for the handset. Oops! The page has since been yanked offline, though not before the Internet community at large... Read more...
