HTC doesn’t yet consider themselves down for the count, there’s more fight left in the company.  And with this persistence, we’ve heard about a new “Hero” device coming in the Fall – aka the HTC A9 (Aero).  Unfortunately, leakers haven’t been able to scoop up more than a couple tidbits about the device at a time.  But as the release nears, the saving grace smartphone should soon come into focus.

The latest details come from LlabTooFeR, the twitter account of a ROM developer.  It is claimed that the HTC A9 will be up with the times and launch with Google’s latest version of Android, Marshmallow.


Up to date software is always a great thing to hear.  HTC’s Sense UI version will still be at 7 (debuted with the One M9), but it wouldn’t be crazy to expect some software updates/additions.

Past leaks have suggested beastly specs for the HTC A9, with power from a deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor.  But as HTC often supports Qualcomm, I don’t think it’d be too far-fetched to expect a Snapdragon 820 in some markets, such as the U.S.  Also, the A9 is expected to pack a whopping 4GB of RAM.

Are you looking forward to hearing more about this significant release for HTC?
