It seems that HTC has finally decided on a major design change to their devices. In the HTC One A9 we saw disappear the characteristic of BoomSound front speakers, a trend that is repeated with the HTC One X9 to an aspect of the speakers that much more unnoticed. This model has been designed in metal, with two versions in dark gray and white. It also highlights its finesse with a thickness that is in the 8 mm, with a weight of 170 grams which makes it a very competitive figure. The company wanted to emphasize short width of the terminal, a feature designed to encourage the use of the equipment to a single hand.

The HTC One X9 incorporates a 5.5 inch screen with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, with a density of 401 dots per inch. These figures allow us to enjoy a good level of detail in all types of content. One aspect that has carefully HTC is the photographic section. Not reach the level of the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, but its close. The company has introduced a 13 megapixel rear BSI sensor with optical image stabilization, a focus of f/2.0 aperture and the ability to record video in 4K of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. An excellent choice to see our videos on a next-generation TV. The front camera has a target of 5 megapixels and the ability to record 1080p Full HD video.

In the entrails of this HTC mobile hides a MediaTek Helio X10 eight-core processor, which gives a speed of process up to 2.2 GHz. This chip is combined with a memory of 3 GB RAM to work with greater number of open processes simultaneously. The internal memory of the HTC One X9 goes up to 32 GB. This capacity can be expanded by using a MicroSD card up to 128 GB.

The chosen operating system is Android 5.1 Lollipop. Among the connections we have the option of using two Nanosim to carry two phone numbers on the same terminal. You could not miss the compatibility with 4G high speed networks up to 150 Mbps or WiFi AC to connect simultaneously to the 2.4 GHz bandwidth and the 5 GHz bandwidth (less congestion and faster). The connections are completed with Bluetooth 4.1 or GPS to navigate anywhere.

Finally, this model features a 3000mAh battery that should give us time to use up to 15 hours talk time or 10 hours of HD video playback. At the moment we have no data on its price or official release date.
