HTC One A9 shows up at Orange France ahead of launch

We weren’t expecting to see the HTC One A9 for a few more days yet, but a listing for the handset has appeared over at Orange France’s website. The page gives us a quick look at the handset, along with hints at a few specifications.

The leak doesn’t contain too many spoilers about the hardware inside the HTC One A9, although it does suggest that the smartphone will come with a 5-inch screen with a 1080p resolution. There is also mention of a 13 megapixel rear camera, 4 megapixel front facing camera and 4G LTE speeds. The One A9 will also ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and HTC’s Sense Home software.

Previous rumors suggest that the One A9 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, and a fingerprint scanner too.

The Orange France listing also gives us a price for the HTC One A9 – €599.99, which works out to roughly $ 690. This certainly seems a little high given the phone’s mid-range specifications, so perhaps the handset will be less expensive at other retailers, or this could just be a placeholder price tag.

HTC is expected to officially unveil its One A9 smartphone on October 20th at an event taking place in New York.
