The chairwoman of Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC Corp. said in a letter to employees Monday that the company’s upcoming new handset will be a good alternative to Apple Inc.’s iPhones.
Cher Wang said there will be great excitement for HTC this week, because the company is going to launch an amazing new smartphone that will make HTC employees proud. The new phone will “strike a balance between beauty, performance and simplicity,” making it good enough to become an alternative to the iPhone, Wang said.
HTC One A9 is the company’s latest smartphone and the first non-Nexus to launch with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The handset is supposed to freshen up the HTC portfolio and give another chance of the otherwise struggling One lineup.
The HTC One A9 is built around a 5″ AMOLED screen of 1080p resolution and is the first to run on the Snapdragon 617 chip. The SoC employs an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A53 cores at 1.5GHz and another four A53 ticking at 1.2GHz, Adreno 405 GPU and 2 or 3 GB of RAM depending on the version.
