HTC One A9 stars in live photos, still unofficial

The HTC One A9 was supposed to be unveiled today going head to head with the new Nexus phones. It seems that HTC has rescheduled, but the A9 still made an appearance today, albeit an unofficial one.

Several hands-on photos have surfaced of the device that looks suspiciously like an iPhone 6. The photos don’t reveal much besides a peek at the UI, which unsurprisingly is Sense UI based.

You also get the opportunity to see the rounded sides of the aluminum unibody and the microUSB 2.0 port (HTC isn’t making the jump to Type-C it seems). Worryingly, there seems to be a loudspeaker on the bottom and no stereo speakers on the front, HTC’s trademark.

The glass panel over the screen is beveled for a smooth 2.5D shape. Below is a 5″ 1080p AMOLED screen according to specs and other mid-range specs: Snapdragon 617 chipset, 13MP OIS camera and 2,150mAh battery, at least according to various leaks. The metal body will be available in a variety of colors. Price is expected to be an unrealistic €700 (fingers crossed this is wrong).
