HTC is struggling. It’s really not secret. Despite the early success the One series generated in the M7, the companies flagship series has quickly fallen out of favour. Nevertheless, the company continues to churn out devices hoping to revitalize the line up and it seems yet another One is on the way.
Based on a leak that surfaced on Chinese site Weibo, HTC may be working on a new flagship device, the One X9. Rumoured specs include a minimum 5″ QHD display, Snapdragon 820 or Helio X20, 4GB RAM, 23MP camera, 4MP UltraPixel front facing camera and a 3500 mAh battery.
If this device is indeed legitimate, I would expect that we’ll see it sooner rather than later. My main rationale is that the “9” in the name would suggest that it’s part of the current 9 series of devices which should be coming to an end soon. Plus, there has been chatter that we could see a Snapdragon 820 device before the calendar turns over.
