The HTC One A9 was announced not too long ago and while the phone does look sleek, there have been some comparisons made to Apple’s iPhones. However the flipside is that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus actually resemble HTC’s older models, so the question of who copied who, or who drew inspiration from who is debate for another day.
That being said if you did like what you see, regardless of whether you think it’s a copy or not, you will be pleased to learn that HTC will be applying this design to future handsets. This was revealed by HTC North Asia’s President Jack Tong where he stated that he felt that the design language of the HTC One A9 could be applied to future HTC devices.
In particular, he thinks that the company’s future smartphones that are part of its premium M series and the Desire lineup could stand to benefit from said design. Of course we doubt it will be an exact copy of the HTC One A9, but it will probably be pretty close and share some design traits and features.
One of the more noticeable differences HTC made was by ditching the BoomSound speakers and including a fingerprint sensor. We’re not sure if the ditching of BoomSound was due to cost reasons, but we can’t say we miss it too much, but what do you guys think? Yay or nay to the future design of HTC’s smartphones?
