HTC One X9 official launch – possibly exclusive – in China

HTC One X9 is finally official in China. The device is pretty similar to HTC A9, but its unibody design is closer to a Nexus 6P than an iPhone. But the hints are small, and they may not even be rip-offs so we’ll let that slide, HTC is in enough trouble with A9’s design as is. The smartphone was officially announced in China recently – after many many leaks – and that is where it will remain because there is no news on it being exported to the rest of the world any time soon.       HTC One X9 official specs:   5.5-inch 1080p IPS LCD screen MediaTek X10 octa-core SoC 3GB of RAM 32 storage plus a MicroSD card slot 13MP camera 3000 mAh battery.   One different thing that One X9 possesses over A9 are the physical capacitive buttons you can spot in the front. The device is currently listed exclusively on Chinese sites and it is unclear if it will become available outside China. It has a listed price of 2399 yuan, which is roughly $370. Would you consider buying an HTC One X9, if it became available worldwide?   Source: HTC via AndroidPolice
