Last year, HTC’s sales boosted up after they launched the A9 smartphone. And to keep up with the latest technology, this year, they have launched its successor- A9S. The HTC A9S is everything which you must have wanted your A9 to be upgraded to. It has the dual finish perfection along with a Super LCD HD screen and 13 MP shooter. The screen is the same 5 inch, and it also has a fingerprint sensor, but the display has been degraded from Full HD to HD. Let’s take a look at the latest launch from HTC and see how else it differs from its predecessor.
The design has been one of the selling points of HTC since long. They have always managed to bring beautiful looking smartphones to the market. A9S has dual finish metal body, which, according to HTC, has withstood hundreds of scratch and drop tests, along with over hundreds of hours of weather testing for long lasting reliability. The frame is quite thin, and it has a diamond like cut buttons. The edges are also polished and feel smooth. HTC have put a lot of attention to the design of this phone. A9S’ dimensions are 146.5 x 71.5 x 8 mm (5.77 x 2.81 x 0.31 in) and it weighs less than 150 gm. The display is Super LCD capacitive touchscreen of 5 inches, with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Corning Gorilla glass protects the front of the smartphone; its version is still unspecified, though.
The phone comes in two variants. Both run on Octa Core processor, but one is backed up by 2GB of RAM, and the other is powered by 3GB RAM. The 2GB RAM variant features 16GB of internal memory, and the 3 GB one has 32GB of space. Both the models have a dedicated slot for microSD card. You can use up to 256GB memory card. The chipset used in A9S is Mediatek MT6755 Helio P10, which we have already seen in Sony’s XA this year. The phone runs on latest Android OS version 6.0 Marshmallow, which is expected to run quite smoothly with the help of 2GB or 3GB RAM in both the variants. The Android is tweaked using HTC Sense UI, which gives quite a good look to the phone’s interface.
The primary camera on the back of HTC A9S is a 13-megapixel shooter, which is equipped with autofocus and is supported with a single LED flash alongside. It is equipped with f/2.2, 28 mm lens. The smartphone also has a 5-megapixel front camera with f/2.8, 33.7 mm lens, which can be used to take selfie pictures and for video calling. It also features voice selfie and auto selfie. The camera app has tons of features and filters, such as Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama, etc.
The phone contains a loudspeaker and an audio jack of 3.5 mm. The multimedia features also include a dedicated microphone with the active noise cancellation features. The types of alerts are WAV ringtones, vibration and MP3. The audio formats which are supported by the phone are eAAC+/ MP3/ FLAC player/ WAV, and the video formats are DivX/Xvid/ H.265 player / MP4, etc.
The battery on this phone isn’t much different from its predecessor. HTC A9 had only 2150 mAh battery, and it has only been upgraded to 2300 mAh. It is one of the negative aspects of this phone. For connectivity, it offers Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, WiFi Direct, Hotspot; Bluetooth v4.1, A2DP, LE; GPS, with A-GPS, GLONASS, NFC (payments only) and FM Radio. It also has microUSB v2.0 port, which can be used for charging the phone, as well as for data transfer.
