After weeks of leaks, the HTC One X9 is now official. The device is being aimed at the Chinese market to start, with folks over there looking forward to a 5.5-inch 1080p device with specs that read out more like a flagship handset than the mid-range price tag it dons.
For starters, you’re getting MediaTek’s Helio X10 chipset, a 64-bit Octa-Core kit which should be able to handle a modern Android experience quite effectively. Coupled with 32GB of storage (expandable by up to 128GB thanks to a microSD slot) and 3GB of RAM it should have no problems with any tasks you throw its way.
For camera, we’ve got a 13 megapixel OIS rear shooter that’s accompanied by an UltraPixel sensor on the flip side. There’s a 3,000mAh battery to power it all, to boot.
The One X9 is poised to be a fair bit more affordable than the HTC One A9, with its price tag starting at the equivalent of $370. That price tag could look a tad cheaper by the time it reaches other markets, though HTC hasn’t even addressed whether it’ll stretch outside of China’s shores.
