HTC announces the One A9 - a $399 Android phone that looks just like the iPhone HTC announced, without much fanfare, its mid-range model, HTC One A9, today that mimicks very effectively the current iPhone design, promises to deliver Android updates almost Nexus-like and will cost $399 unlocked.
Despite the promises of a quick rollout of future Android releases to One A9's users, HTC hasn't dropped its Sense user interface. Phone sports metallic back, with antenna stripes, very much like iPhone has. Internally the phone has Snapdragon 617 chip, 2GB RAM in 16GB storage version and 4GB RAM in 32GB version. Both models have a microSD memory card slot.

Full HD display is 5" and uses Gorilla Glass 4. Main camera is a 13Mpix camera with optical image stabilization and f/2.0 optics. Other than those details, the phone has fingerprint scanner, UltraPixel front camera and Dolby Audio.

Phone is expected to start shipping in beginning of November. Availability varies geographically.

HTC has had antenna stripes since before the iPhone 6, when the first One came out in 2013.

Does this UI still include the ultra low battery mode?
