Earlier this week a couple images surfaced of HTC’s latest device that appears to be in their pipeline, the HTC One X9. Unfortunately, those images did not reveal much detail about the forthcoming smartphone. Now, only a couple days later, more images have surfaced, this time some good quality images showing the HTC One X9 from different angles and showing some details.
One the front of the device, we can see that HTC has moved the BoomSound speakers they are known for out to the edges of the device and in a bit of a change, the HTC logo has been moved to the top. Capacitive buttons are still present below the display though. Overall, the top and bottom bezels appear to be slimmed down just a bit compared to some of their previous devices, a change that will likely be welcomed by the market.
On the back of the device the camera lens has been pushed off to the side and is part of a strip that runs along the top of the device reminiscent of the Nexus 6P. Sources indicate this rear-facing camera will be a 13MP OIS camera. The images also show some of the slots and buttons. Of note, sources indicate the SIM card slot on the side will not require a special ejector tool to open and will double as a dual SIM tray or a SIM plus microSD tray.
One specification that leaked out from the source of the images is that the HTC One X9 will come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This is a change from the TENAA certification information previously spotted that showed the device coming with Android 5.0 Lollipop.
