HTC announced a new flagship phone yesterday dubbed the HTC A9 after several rumors of a phone called the HTC Aero and just like the rumors had it. The HTC A9 looks a lot like the iPhone 6, 6S with a centered camera, and slightly darker shades in terms of color.

The HTC comes with a 13 Mega Pixel camera with a sapphire cover lens with auto-focus , a BSI sensor, Optical Image Stabilization, ƒ/2.0, 1080p video recording and it also lets you shoot raw images. The camera has an advanced manual mode to let you play with the aperture, ISO, lighting as you shoot those lovely images. You can store those images, apps and multimedia on the 32 GB internal storage or add a MicroSD card of up to 2TB if you are a media hoarder.


The HTC A9 has a fingerprint scanner on the front enable you unlock and make payments through the Marshmallow API. Speaking of Android Marshmallow, much as the A9 has Android 6.0 with HTC Sense, HTC says this phone will recieve android updates 15 days after the Nexus phones receive an update.
