HTC has launched its first all-metal smartphone— One A9 in India. The A9 melds HTC’s good-looking design with the newest features of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The device’s refined edges and precision-cut ridges on the power button combine with the super-thin metal frame, giving the phone a natural and lightweight feel—it weighs 143 gm. The A9 has an interesting fusion of metal and glass. Its five-inch, edge-to-edge 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4, Full-HD Amoled screen cascades into the metal frame, giving you brighter colours. The A9 is also the first non-Nexus smartphone powered by the Android Marchmallow operating system. It features the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor with integrated X8 LTE and 64-bit octa-core CPUs. The phone comes in 32 GB configuration and features expandable memory, supporting up to 2 TB in SD card storage. It costs Rs 29,990.
