HTC One A9s makes the old new again

HTC 10 is one of the best phones of the year. Can HTC work their magic on another of the catalogue? Sort of, however, this is only the HTC One A9s. Whilst not a full refresh, HTC has updated the innards and price. The 5.0-inch display has been switched from the Full HD AMOLED to a Super LCD 720p screen. Gone is the aging Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor in favour of the MediaTek Helio P10 Cortex A53 2.0GHz with the backing of a Mali-T860 MP2 GPU and this should provide something of a speed increase. The 2150mAh battery is now a 2300mAh battery.

Retained at the One A9s options 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage or 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage depending on the region. microSD slot 13MP camera with 1080p video recording, 5MP front facer .

HTC have not revealed pricing or availability just yet, however, an educated guess would have the same £399 price point retained and an October 14 launch date in London on the cards.
