Recently, a few key specs of the rumored HTC One X9, which is said to carry a model number of E56, leaked online - including QHD display, 4GB RAM, 64GB/128GB internal memory, 23MP/4MP camera combo, 3,500mAh battery, and Snapdragon 820 SoC or Mediatek's deca-core Helio X20 chipset - indicating a high-end device.
However, reliable leaksters like @LlabTooFeR and @evleaks have rejected these specs. Following are some tweets from the former:
