Despite the fact that it’s Christmas Evening, we’re getting used to seeing the odd item declarations originating from the Far East around this time (ugh). Today, the guilty party is none other than HTC, who has reported yet another metallic “saint” Android gadget, the One X9. Based on its looks, you should say the Butterfly S (front) and Lenovo’s Phab Plus (back) made a child here, particularly with how the X9 even re-presented HTC’s a distant memory illuminated capacitive Android catches. All the more interestingly, this gadget is going for only 2,399 yuan or about $370 off-contract in China, making it HTC’s most moderate legend gadget ever.
On paper, the X9 is essentially what you’d anticipate from a premium mid-officer nowadays, as it accompanies a 5.5-inch 1080p presentation (likely IPS), an octa-center MediaTek X10 chipset (8x Cortex-A53), 3GB of RAM, 32GB of capacity, a committed microSD opening (up to 2TB), a 3,000 mAh battery and double Nano SIM spaces. Radio-wise, you get the general UMTS 3G (850/900/1900/2100) or more China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA 3G (1900/2000), alongside double mode LTE (FDD groups 1/3/5/7/8/28; TDD groups 38/39/40/41).
