Recently, we passed along news that HTC’s next high-end device could be the rumoured HTC One X9, according to one leakster. Another leakster, however is claiming that the X9 is nothing but another mid-range device.
Wrong! Not high-end but another mid-range device
Renowned French-speaking site Nowhereelse recently claimed that the HTC One X9 was a high-end device. According to Chinese media, the smartphone rocked at least a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC or a MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core processor, coupled with 4 GB of RAM under the hood, a 23-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 4-megapixel UltraPixel camera for snapping selfies and video chat, 64 GB to 128 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 3,500 mAh battery to keep everything running. BoomSound speakers are said to be on board as well. Serial leakster @evleaks (Even Blass), however, says that NWE is wrong.
According to Blass, the One X9 (model number E56) is not a high-end device, but a mid-range smartphone. He claims that it will feature a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. Under the hood is said to be a processor made by MediaTek, but Blass fails to mention the specific CPU. He does, however, say that it will feature 2 GB of RAM. Blass also mentions that the One X will feature a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 4-megapixel UltraPixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. Lastly, he says that 61 GB of internal storage will be on board and a 3,000 mAh battery will keep the lights on.
Moving on to when HTC plans to release the unannounced One X9, another leakster (ROM developer @LlabTooFeR) claims that the device will be launched sometime in the first quarter of 2016 (January to March). He also says that the HTC M10 (HTC’s next flagship) will launch 2 to 3 months after the release of the One X9. We’re guessing that HTC will launch the M10 as the “HTC One M10.”
Of course, since none of these are official, take them with a pinch of salt.
