HTC’s new iPhone clone may be a bit too small for some people, which is why the company is reportedly working on a slightly larger 5.5-inch variant of the smartphone. Known as the One X9, it’s extremely similar to the recently released One A9, with some of the biggest differences, aside from the display size, being the apparent lack of a fingerprint sensor and the fact that the HTC branding has been moved slightly.
In the past week or two, the One X9 has seemingly taken over all news related to the HTC. Rumors and leaks have been flowing freely, and now we finally have some more concrete details, courtesy of China’s TENAA. The telecommunications agency has not only photographed the glorious gadget in a series of proper poses, but also revealed some of the specs. The device looks to be retaining the flatter back side as seen in the HTC A9, as well as a return to BoomSound speakers. Perhaps more importantly however, the smartphone is also moving the company’s oft-criticized front branding to the top of the device. Onlookers will be perhaps disappointed, however, to note that the face of the phone has capacitive buttons, something that is more noteworthy for the fact that unlike the A9, no fingerprint sensor is present. Specs reveal that the device has a Full HD 5.5-inch display, an unknown 2.2GHz Quad Core SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera, and microSD support. The device is detailed as being 153.2mm X 75.9mm, 7.99mm thick, and weighs 174 grams.
