HTC announces the One X9

Ahead of the company’s One M10 announcement, HTC has revealed the One X9 at MWC, which promises mid-range specs in a premium all-metal body.

While thanks to notorious leaker Evan Blass we’ve already had a good look at the upcoming One M10, HTC has proceeded to announce a very different smartphone at MWC; the One X9.
The One X9 was already revealed in China late last year, and doesn’t offer groundbreaking specifications but does provide a premium all-metal body.

The device offers a brushed aluminium finish on its rear panel, while on the front it sports a full 5.5″ HD display with a resolution of 1920×1080.
International pricing has not yet been revealed, but based on Chinese retail prices the unit is expected to cost approximately $370 USD in North Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
Interestingly, the One X9 doesn’t make use of HTC’s UltraPixel technology, and instead offers a 13 megapixel rear camera with OIS. The X9 will arrive running Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HTC’s Sense skin atop it.
On the hardware front, the X9 will include an octa-core MediaTek processor, 32GB of internal storage, 3GB of RAM, a 13 and 5 megapixel camera split, as well as a non-removable 3,000mAh battery. Further, the device will retain HTC’s BoomSound speakers.
