HTC Releases The HTC ONE A9 Specifications And Price

Published

on

bg-payAccording to XDA,The HTC One A9, at first glance, looks like an iPhone. Specifically speaking, the back of the HTC One A9 bears uncanny resemblance to the iPhone 6’s back. Now, HTC greatly emphasized that the design of the A9 is evolutionary, as it borrows the “signature design language of the HTC One family” and builds upon the original HTC One M7’s full metallic unibody design. But there’s still no denying that the one can confuse the One A9 with the iPhone 6 rather than with the One M7. Design-wise, the phone features a thin metal frame with pleasing curves on the sides, but a rather flat back which is unusual to HTC devices as they tend to sport gentle curves on the back.On the front, you’ll find a deep-set capsule-shaped fingerprint sensor, but not the much-acclaimed front facing stereo speakers as the single speaker grille has now made its way to the bottom of the device.

The bottom of the device also features an off-center standard micro-usb port(not Type-C), a microphone hole and the headphone jack. On the right of the device are the volume buttons and the power button, which featuree a ridged design and texture, making it easier to identify just by touch. The left side of the device features the slots for the SIM tray as well as the micro-sd cardtray. The top of the device is barren, while the back features the rear camera module at the top centre with a dual tone LED flash

SPECIFICATIONS


DISPLAY : 5″ FHD AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4


PROCESSOR: Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor, with four Cortex A-53’s clocked at 1.5GHz and another four clocked at 1.2GHz. This is accompanied by Adreno 405 in the GPU department

bg-multi-modeHTC also emphasized greatly on the camera prowess of the One A9. The phone features a 13MP rear facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture, OIS and PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus), along with adual tone LED flash. The phone also supports RAW image capture, along with one-touch auto processing for these images. The camera can also record videos in hyperlapse, where essentially the entire video is sped through in a dramatic manner. For the front camera, HTC retains its 4MP UltraPixel camera with a f/2.0 aperture.

HTC’s decision to give stereo speakers a bottom stage may disappoint the fans that it made for its prominent front-facing speakers from the M lineup. However, HTC has improved upon personal audio experiences with an improved audio jack, which now features an increased output of 1V. With the other improvements in place, the sound output from the headphone jack should now have higher fidelity and better stereo separation, all of which should finally do justice to good earphones/headphones.
Image 004The HTC One A9 also has one more trick up its sleeve. In addition to carrier variants, HTC will also sell a completely unlocked variant of the device, which will not only work across all major carriers, it will also come with anunlockable bootloader, which will also not void the warranty of the device. The focus here is definitely a developer, as the phone is also promised to beupdated to every version of Android released in the next two years, and that too, within 15 days of Google rolling out the update to Nexus devices. The unlocked edition will also come with a 6 month subscription to Google Play Music, and 12 months of coverage for accidental damage (including cracked screen replacements and water damage) under HTC’s Uh-Oh protectionprogram for devices purchased via HTC.com. These phones will also come with a 30 day trial period wherein users can return the phone if they do not like it.
It should be available in Nigeria by November Or December

All in all, the HTC One A9 does seem like a very decent mid-ranger. It may not pack in the best of the specs, nor offer the offer the best bang out of buck. It does however, provide a different product for HTC fans and a another device to bank on for HTC.

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore 1

I woke up to a very disappointing news yesterday,Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore and believe me I was very upset about this move. This is coming at a time where Huawei is making changes to the Android market as we know it and Google revoked their licence based on mere accusations,

Accusations that haven’t been even proved to be true. This decision would probably worsen the trade war between China and the United States.

The consequences of this may end up affecting all technological markets and the world economy in general. Don’t forget that Huawei is the world’s second-largest seller of smartphones

Newer devices from Huawei will not be able to install Android updates, or any Google apps, including Google Play Store and Gmail. However, you can simply access those Android updates through AOSP and GAPPs but without any support from Google.

Donald Trump had accused Huawei of working for the Chinese government, installing back doors in their networks and devices to facilitate surveillance, without any evidence at all.

This made the senior manager of Huawei get arrested a few months ago. Since then, both China and the United States have imposed tariffs on their respective products. Recently, the Trump Administration added the Chinese brand Huawei to the blacklist of the Department of Commerce, hence, forcing American companies to stop having commercial relations with Huawei.

However, according to Reuters, Google is the first to comply with the recently approved law, but other US companies that have commercial relations with Huawei, like Qualcomm, Intel, NVIDIA, will have to make a similar decision.
