HTC has prepared its fans a big surprise, before the end of this year. The One X9 is a new phablet that was added to the family and it costs Rs. 24,400 ($370). It’s not known when the phone will be available globally, but for now, it’s listed on the Weibo website.
The new phablet features a full metal body and on its back it has only a line at the bottom, likewise the One M9, but at the top, there’s a wide band running across the upper edge and it contains the camera and dual-tone flash plus RAW support. Speaking of the camera, it has a resolution of 13MP which supports an aperture of f/2.0 and the rest of features include the second generation OIS, which detects body shakes in 0.125ms. Also, the phone has a BSI back-illuminated sensor and records 4K videos, and the images can be saved in Raw format, while the front camera supports a resolution of 5MP and has the same aperture, but its lens is 24.7mm.
The screen has a diagonal of 5.5-inch, but it offers a Full HD resolution of 1080×1920 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 401ppi, while the surface is protected by Corning Gorilla glass. Also, on the front side you’ll see the dual front-facing speakers which are using the Dolby Audio technology, but HTC hasn’t added a fingerprint scanner, so there’s no fingerprint scanner available for making online purchases. The dimensions of the X9’s body are 153.9×75.9×7.99mm, it weights 170 grams and the exterior is available in two variants of colors: Gunmetal Grey and Silver.
The X9 is powered by a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor which is backed by 3GB of RAM and it has an internal memory of 32GB, which is expandable up to 2TB with a microSD card. The battery has a capacity of 3000mAh and it offers 15 hours of talk time on 3G, or ten hours of HD video playback.
