HTC recently rolled out its first A-series smartphone, the One A9, with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board. There’s lots of excitement over the good-looking phone that looks like an Apple iPhone but functions like an Android.

Being a non-Nexus smartphone, the One A9 isn’t what you expect from a high-end smartphone. It started out with a bang in its first few weeks of release, and is now expanding its frontiers to countries like India, reports Gizbot.

Wrapped in exclusive features, the phone’s all metal-body renders a rich look that emphasizes its premium quality. The rounded edges enhance the rectangular sides, creating an outstanding twist to the whole look.

A stunning amalgamation of iPhone 6/6s and One M8, the One A9 exudes an aura that’s irresistible. The phone is a sheer delight to hold in hand, what with its soft edges along with a 2.5D glass panel at the front.

Spot a volume panel and power button on the right side of the phone and a microSD card slot along with a SIM tray towards the left. Find a 3.5 mm headphone jack, speaker grills and Micro USB at the bottom of the device.

Of all the features, the most liked seems to be the 13 MP camera fitted with a LED flash. A 4 MP selfie shooter appears in front of the device with a fingerprint scanner embedded underneath the home button.

The display is the centre piece of attraction in the One M9 and is a 5-inch display screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and AMOLED 2.5D technology.

The phone’s powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor set at 1.5 GHz and also at 1.2 GHz quad-core modules. Take your pick from any of the two options: 16 GB of internal storage backed by 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage supported by 3 GB of RAM.

The good news is you can expand the memory in each of the variants with a microSD card supporting up to 200 GB. This means lot of movies, videos and family albums.
