Let’s take a quick glance at the rumored specifications for the HTC One X9.

Specifications – HTC One X9

The HTC One X9 is rumored to have a 5.5 inch Full HD display, a 2.2 GHz 64-bit octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 MT6795 processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory which is expandable up to 1 TB via a microSD card slot, 13 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front facing camera, 3000 mAh battery, and last but not the least powering the device with Android’s latest version the Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Leaked photos of the HTC One X9

Chinese website Anzhuo leaked several photos of the HTC One X9. These photos show the HTC One X9 in all its glory from various angles. It is common knowledge that the HTC One series has often been criticized for looking too similar to the iPhones but the fact remains when it comes to a form factor Apple does not own a patent (thankfully) on form factors so I am of the view that if a high quality Android device, such as the HTC One M9+ mobile, looks similar to an iOS device it should never be a case for criticism, instead it’s a welcome addition to Android’s range of spectacular phones.

The HTC One X9 will also likely face some unwarranted criticism for looking similar to the iPhone 6S or for sharing an uncanny similarity with HTC’s very own HTC One A9 mobile. Here’s a gallery of leaked photos of the HTC One X9 made public by Anzhuo:

Is HTC One X9 going to be a mid-range device?

Judging by the specifications of the HTC One X9, it does seem likely that the device will be a mid-range one instead of a high-end device. But there are other reasons for why this could be the case. While the phone looks similar to the HTC One A9 it could also serve as the larger cousin of the HTC One A9. This could be the perfect option for consumers who want to own a One A9 but with a larger display. The HTC One A9 has a 5 inch display so it does seem very plausible that HTC Corporation might be planning on marketing the HTC One X9 as a larger-screen alternative to the One A9.

Now in order to give consumers a good option with respect to the screen size HTC wouldn’t want to jeopardize the sales of one of its most important devices – the One A9. So instead of sticking to the same specifications the company seems to be hinting at a trade-off between screen-size and certain other specs. Since the specifications on the HTC One X9 are still part of the rumor mill we can’t be absolutely sure but it does seem likely that the One X9 will cost less than the One A9.

Even though there is no official word on this yet, there is a possibility that the HTC One X9 could be introduced at CES 2016 in Las Vegas to kick off what could be an exciting year of smartphones from HTC.
