The HTC One A9: A 399$ iPhone 6S Running Marshmallow

At yesterday's HTC event named "be brilliant", HTC announced it's latest smartphone, the HTC One A9. If it looks familiar at first glance, it's probably because of the picture below.

Well, looks aside, the A9 features a Snapdragon 617(yes, it exists) which is an Octa-core chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB RAM & 16 GB memory / 3 GB RAM & 32 GB memory, and a 5" 1080p display which is kind of a disappointment in comparison to the other specs.

Nevertheless, there is no compromise in the camera department with a 13 MP primary camera with dual LED flash and an f/2.0 aperture alongside a 4 MP secondary camera with both capable of shooting 1080p video. There is also an option for clicking pictures in RAW format.

Other notable features include a fingerprint sensor, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Wifi 802.11AC, Bluetooth 4.1 and a 2150 mAH battery.
