htc one a9sSeveral days ago, a leak revealed that HTC had a new phone in the works called the HTC One A9s which is supposed to be the successor to the HTC One A9. For those wondering about the handset, wonder no more as HTC has officially announced the device, and sure enough it looks like the previous leaks/rumors were right about its design and specs.

Now despite the HTC One A9s supposedly being the successor to the HTC One A9, its specs seem to be a bit of a downgrade. For starters its 5-inch display has been downgraded from Full HD to HD, and its 13MP rear-facing camera with an aperture of f/2.0 has been increased to f/2.2 and apparently there is no OIS either.

However apart from that, there are some slight changes, such as its front-facing camera which has gone from 4MP to 5MP. It has also seen an increase in battery size from 2,150mAh to 2,300mAh, and the RAM/storage configurations of 2GB/16GB and 3GB/32GB are still there, but overall it feels more like a move backwards rather than forwards.

There is no word on pricing or availability, but the HTC One A9 was set at $500 which was pricey given its specs, so here’s hoping that HTC won’t make the mistake of thinking that customers will be willing to pay that price what a phone with even worse specs than the One A9.
