The long rumored HTC One A9 “Aero”, as per the latest reports, is one powerful device that HTC fans and enthusiasts alike are sure to be happy about.
According to a report by Gizmo China, the HTC One M9, or also known by the codename “Aero”, will be running under a massively powerful deca-core (TEN cores) Helio X20 processor. This, along with the other key specifications of the phone, was revealed via leaked Geekbench benchmark results.
According to the benchmark results, the new deca-core Helio X20 MT6797 processor on the HTC One A9 scored 1835 in the single core test, which the report noted that is as high as the score that the dual-core NVIDIA Tegra K1 got for the Nexus 9. On the 10-core test, the HTC One A9 was on the top of everyone, even beating Samsung’s very own Exynos 7420 with a score of 5884 points.
The 10 cores of the HTC One A9 are divided into one dual A72 cores, and an octa-core A53. This is to ensure that the chip will be able to give maximum performance without exhausting the capacity of the battery of the device, and thus to prevent overheating, too.
This is totally different from the previous set of rumors. Previously rumored as the newest flagship from HTC, and then reported to be only an intermediate smartphone offering after all, famous smartphone news leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks on Twitter) previously that the HTC Aero on the works will be branded as a “One” device, and will be made as an intermediate level phone model, rather than a new fully loaded new flagship for the mobile.
Other details that the Geekbench result revealed is that the HTC One A9 will pack 4 GB of RAM, and will boot on Android Lollipop 5.1.
Reports are pointing to a possible launch of the HTC One A9 at the company’s “The World Best Meets The Best” event on September 29, where they are expected two launch two new flagships.
