The HTC One A9 was announced not too long ago and for its specs and its design, its asking price of $399 is actually a pretty decent deal. However as we noted in our review, this is the launch price and it is only a promotional price, which HTC has since confirmed. This means that upon its release to major retailers and distributors, expect a price hike of $100.
According to HTC’s official statement, “The One A9 price in the US is a very limited-time promotional offer for that region’s online store, as well as select HTC-only franchise stores. The offer is a special promotional pre-sale and is expected to conclude once the One A9 is available on-shelf at major retail and distributor partners.”
So like HTC said, the price hike will begin once it hits the shelves of major retailers and distributors. For those who are still on the fence regarding the device, we guess you don’t really have that long until the price goes up. The HTC One A9 is still available for pre-order via HTC’s website, so head on over if you’d like to get your hands on it.
In the meantime just in case you forgot, the HTC One A9 will feature a 5-inch Full HD 1080p display. Under the hood, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 chipset can be found with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, Dolby Audio, a 13MP rear-facing camera with an aperture of f/2.0, a HTC UltraPixel front-facing camera, a 2,150mAh battery, with Android 6.0 calling the shots.
