As was rumored a number of times prior to its unveiling, the HTC One A9 has a solid, unibody metal design, albeit one that’s really slim. The device measures just 7mm thick and has slightly rounded edges and corners to make it feel comfortable in hand, and to make sure you notice how slim it is. Like most metal phones, there are two antenna bands on the back running parallel to each other; one near the top and the other near the bottom. The camera takes center position near the top edge, alongside an LED flash.
On the front, HTC has built in a 5-inch full HD AMOLED display coated with Gorilla Glass 4 which HTC claims gives it great outdoor visibility. On the back, the 13MP camera has optical image stabilization and phase-detection autofocus built in, to make even lowlight pictures look sharp and blur-free. You’ll be able to save images as RAW files, and access a Pro mode to capture photos with more manual controls. The front camera is an UltraPixel sensor to capture 300% more light than conventional cameras.
