The much talked about One A9 is probably going to be the star of HTC's upcoming event taking place on October 20. Before it gets unveiled, though, the phone just keeps on leaking. This time around we have a new benchmark run completed by the One A9, which means we get a list of most of its specs.
We've seen the One A9 being put through the paces of Geekbench in September, and now GFXBench is the app used. Strangely, though, the specs are different.
GFXBench says the One A9 is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 615 SoC (with a 1.5 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU), but Geekbench had it coming with the MediaTek Helio X20 (which sports a ten-core CPU). What's more, many past rumors talked about the A9 having the Snapdragon 617 instead.
The HTC One A9 is supposed to have a 5-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 12 or 13 MP rear camera, either a 4 MP UltraPixel selfie snapper or a 5 MP 'regular' unit, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and Wi-Fi. The prototype that was benchmarked ran Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is also expected to be the version on board the final device from day one.

meh. I'm up to phones that can catch up with android updates, so I considered buying old flagships that ranked down their prices.
I think the Huawei P8 would be a better choice......if you want metal, beauty and performance! Me? Only interested in top of the rangers!!
If it really uses SD 615, what will make it better than Desire 826? Size is smaller but it loses front stereo speakers & carries smaller battery... Still.... good luck HTC
