Meet the new iPhone..err.. HTC's A9 smartphone!

HTC has been known to innovate its products, that too in quick succession. After the fall of the One M9, HTC launched the One M8s and the M9++ in quick succession, not to forget the limited edition One M9 in collaboration with Jourdan Dunn.

While the launch of the M9's yearly successor isn't due till March next year, HTC has been working on a new phone that could change its fortunes come December.

Reports suggest that the new phone features the powerful Snapdragon 810 chip, an Adreno 430 GPU, 3GB of RAM, a 20MP primary camera and an impressive 2,840mAh battery. The specs suggest a new flagship which is no less, maybe superior, to the M9 which was marketed so aggressively.

Yet another source @evleaks has suggested that a new HTC phone named Aero will set sail as early as the last quarter of the year, suggesting that HTC hardly trusts the M9 to last till March next year. HTC have not so long ago stated that work is on to produce a 'hero' phone, so we feel this must be it.

While most of us thought that better specs would be the answer to HTC's woes, HTC has other thoughts. A recently leaked image published by Android Central off the new 'hero' phone looks very similar to the iPhone 6, even though it is taller and wider than the latter. The leak also suggests that the new phone may be launched as HTC A9 in the last quarter of the year.

While HTC seems to leave no stones unturned in its quest for market dominance, others like Xiaomi and Samsung would know too well that featuring looks similar to Apple's iPhones isn't really a short cut to success.

If you would like to own an Android phone with an iPhone's looks, a recent Chinese report claimed that the upcoming phone will feature a 6-inch QHD display with 1440 x 2560 pixels, the upcoming Snapdragon 820 processor, a 4GB RAM, Adreno 520 graphics and will be completely waterproof.

The phone's camera will also contain Qualcomm Spectra camera dual-ISP for 14-bit sensor support. Combining the best specs available in the market, the new phone will also feature a 3,500mAh battery, a 20.7MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera.
