Front and Rear of HTC Aero Gets Pictured, Spitting Image of the iPhone 6?
Today, new images claiming to be the HTC Aero, or HTC One A9 as it might be called, surfaced online. Coming from a familiar source, the French leaker Steve Hammerstoffer aka @stagueve, the fresh photos show the rear and front of upcoming hero handset from HTC.
As it appears, the alleged HTC Aero looks practically identical to the iPhone 6 with the same metal design, rounded corners and the antenna lines to maintain wireless connectivity. Further, the single camera towards the top of the Aero, with flash and mic hole, features softly rounded edges very much like the iPhone.
However, accusing HTC Aero to copy the iPhone 6 might not be completely fair. The original HTC One, the One M7 released back in 2013, featured a somewhat similar design. The company then followed that design to the One M8 and the M9; both of these devices have full metal bodies with that small plastic break.
But here we see one striking contrast from the One lineup; the Aero is flat – and so is the iPhone 6.
As for the specs, the Aero is expected to feature a 5.5-inch screen with 2.5D curved glass, 4GB of RAM, and could be powered by a MediaTek Helio X20 SoC. The phone will reportedly launch in late October, with availability scheduled for mid-November.
