It’s been a few weeks since we’ve heard anything about HTC’s upcoming One A9 (a.k.a. the HTC Aero), which is expected to be unveiled at an event on October 20th. After seeing rumors that the A9 would be the next flagship, packing killer specs like a 10-core processor and 4GB of RAM, further leaks indicated that it would be more of a budget phone. This week, we finally got a first glance at what the device itself could look like, courtesy of some photos released by @OnLeaks.

From what we can see, the One A9 will sport the familiar button layout that we saw on the HTC One M9, with the power and volume buttons flanking the right side of the device. The left side looks to be housing a SIM slot and a MicroSD slot, and there appears to be an IR blaster at the top of the phone. The bottom houses a speaker, 3.5mm audio jack, and MicroUSB charging port. The photos indicate that the device is running on AT&T’s network, although the device will likely be released on multiple carriers.
As a reminder, the latest rumored specs for the One A9 include a Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 16Gb of internal storage, and a 2150 mAh battery. Obviously if these specs hold true, the A9 won’t be blowing anyone away, but HTC could have a solid budget device just in time for the holidays. We’ll be covering HTC’s event on October 20th, so we will see how accurate the leaks so far have been.
