The HTC One A9 is the first Android device besides Nexus to receive an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Besides providing an OS update, the multinational Taiwanese tech giant also gave away updates on camera improvement, Android security upgrade and some bug fixes from the previous operating system.
During the launching of the device, HTC announced that it will receive an operating system update and it was revealed that 15 days after Marshmallow hit the Nexus line of devices. HTC One A9 also received its own update.
HTC One A9 is equipped with a 5-inch AMOLED display with 441 pi pixel density that is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for added endurance. It has an Android Marshmallow 6.0 that will receive the latest update of the device right away after the Nexus. Running the device is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 coupled with Adreno GPU 405 that is more capable of handling the processing power required by most apps in the market.
The device comes with two variants in 16 GB with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB partnered with 3 GB of RAM that are both expandable up to a massive 200 GB that allows a more lag-free navigation. It has a 13 megapixel with dual led tone rear camera and a 4 megapixel front shooter capable of recording 1080p videos.
The A9 also has a fingerprint sensor, which is common in most of the phones in the market today. The only downside of the device is the descent 2150 mAh battery that is most likely can only power the device up to 8 hours of moderate usage. Given the latest update provided by Android that comes with bug fixes, power management should not be an issue.
The HTC US president Jason Mackenzie stated that only HTC One A9 unlocked United States phones will receive the speedy updates and those devices bought abroad will have to wait for the updates a little bit longer. But still, he affirmed that the devices will receive the promised security phone updates and bug fixes every now and then.
