HTC Launches the One X9 in China, Bears MediaTek Helio X10
It’s the season of giving, and HTC has given us another device to add to the list of releases in 2015. The HTC One X9 has gone official in China, aiming to occupy a space in the mid end Chinese market.
The HTC One X9 features a 5.5″ 1080p IPS display, and a metal body that we discussed earlier with a standard set of capacitive buttons below the display, and BoomSound speakers on the front. The device lines up perfectly with the leaked renders we have seen so far, so the design aspect of the device bears no surprise to anyone keeping abreast of the latest leaks.
On the inside, the One X9 features a MediaTek X10 octa-core processor with a clock speed of 2.2 GHz. There is PowerVR G6200 in the GPU department, and 3GB of RAM to keep things comfortably running. There is 32GB of internal storage available in the device, along with a microSD card slot. The X9 features dual SIM slots, along with the standard set of connectivity specs like WiFi b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.1. There is also a decently sized 3,000 mAh battery, with support for “fast” charging at 5V/1.5A.
On the camera front, the HTC One X9 features a 13MP rear camera, packing in OIS and dual tone LED flash, along with the capability to shoot images in RAW format and videos in 4K. The front camera follows along the “UltraPixel” format, with a 4MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture.
There has been no mention of the OS version this mid-ranger would sport, so both Android 6.0 and Android 5.1 are possibilities at this stage for the version which the device ships with. There is also no mention of global availability, with the price in China being quoted at 2,399 CNY ($370). This price pits the device below the One A9, which is priced at 2,799 CNY ($430), if you compare the device with their price in the Chinese market.
The HTC One X9 should be available in China soon (no dates specified). We’re hoping that the device does make its way outside of China, and not remain a Chinese market exclusive like some other HTC models have been.
What are your thoughts on the HTC One X9? If the device retailed at $370, would you consider it a decent buy? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
