HTC A9 (Aero) to debut with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, report says

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?
