HTC One A9 preview – HTC’s new high-end line

HTC announced its new addition to the One line last month – the HTC One A9. However, the model doesn’t replace the current flagship of the company (M9), even though its price suits a high-end device. Some of its specs include an octa-core SoC, 5-inch AMOLED display and 13MP camera packed in a metal and stylish body.

2150 mAh battery and Android 6.0 Marshmallow

The phone has a 2150 mAh battery, which doesn’t sound all that impressive for a high-end model, but HTC claims that it will be able to provide over 16 hours of talk time, 12 hours of video playback, 9 hours of Wi-Fi Web surfing and 60 hours of music playback or in other words – decent, if not good. We’ll be able to determine whether or not these values are true only after we’ve tested the device, so for now we can only take their word. Anyway, Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology is implemented, so you shouldn’t worry about running out of juice that much since you can just charge it up for a couple of minutes and have enough battery life left to get you through the rest of the day.

One A9 is one of the first devices on the market featuring the latest version of Google’s OS. Android 6.0 Marshmallow brings a lot of optimizations and upgrades, some of which concern energy consumption, letting us believe that the phone will perform well in our battery tests. Of course, the OS is paired with HTC’s custom UI – HTC Sense.

Octa-core Snapdragon 617 and 5-inch AMOLED Full HD display

Harga-HTC-One-A9
HTC One A9 boasts Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 617. The SoC has four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.2GHz and four more Cortex-A53, but clocked at the higher 1.5GHz. The GPU in the phone is Adreno 405, while the available RAM is 2GB. The internal storage is 16GB, but there is a microSD memory card slot present that supports up to 200GB.

The smartphone has a 5-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, leading to 441 ppi pixel density. We’re expecting rich and vivid colors, due to the AMOLED panel. Moreover, there is a Gorilla Glass 4 coating protecting the screen from cracks and scratches.

13MP camera and stylish metal construction

The rear camera of the device is 13MP with a sapphire coating lens, autofocus, dual-LED flash and OIS (optical image stabilization). This all sound good, but things get even better with the various manual settings to help you capture better photos. Also the camera has a BSI sensor and f/2.0 aperture, both of which help to achieve better results when taking photos in low-light conditions. It is also capable of recording videos in Full HD resolution and fast motion (up to 12x). The front-facing unit is an UltraPixel camera with the same f/2.0 aperture and 1080p video capabilities.

We’re ending this preview with a couple of words about the design. The phone has a very stylish appearance, thanks to the metal construction, and it should be comfortable to hold and use, due to the thin profile and light weight – 7.3 mm and 143 grams respectively. Anyway, it’s obvious that some parts of the design are taken from the Taiwanese manufacturer’s One M line, but we can’t deny that it strongly resembles the last two generations of iPhone models as well.
