FCC docs for the new device has been released.

http://www.gforgames.com/gadgets/sprint-htc-one-a9-certified-49100/

Found the filing last night.

 

Interestingly they listed it as a category 3 UE when we know for a fact it's a category 6 ue that supports b41 carrier aggregation and have fixed CA engineering screens.

Prototypes have been in the US and in the hands of a few of our members for several weeks already.  I hear that this HTC handset is "aero-dynamic."

 

;)

Looking at the numbers they provided before a write up is done. They don't look amazing or am I reading it wrong.

I am not sure, but I think you are reading my post wrong.

I'm not good at humor . But was quoting to ask you about the band and frequency numbers related to the A9. As from my quick skim they seemed average to poor.

Liveblog from the video


- Snapdragon 617 processor
- "uh oh protection" Free replacement of phones
- 3 GB ram, 32 GB internal storage, MicroSD slot is available.
- 5 inch AMOLED panel
- 24-bit, 192KHz DAC
- Does have carrier Aggregation
- 13 MP camera (WITH OIS)
- More gimmicky video/picture features "Hyperlapse"
- Supports RAW video capture
- Comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow
- Fingerprint Scanner

$399.99 Direct from HTC, Unlocked. Available to lease via Sprint.

More detailed specs when they have their retarded twitter Q&A but I am not about to wade through a bunch of 140 character bullshit to find out more specs.

Edit: I'm not sure about the value here over say a Moto X other than if someone wants a smaller phone. Even the 5x seems competitive at this price. Mid range price is really full of options these days

Edit2: spex sheet

The best color is the dark garnet red which it seems sprint doesn't get! If the least iPhone looking color as well!

So this will be available for Sprint November 6th for $200 on contract they will pay the first two payments on a lease or $696 outright! When HTC themselves is selling it for 400 on pre-order on their site! Where is this price disparity coming from its like Sprint doesn't want to sell this device!http://www.androidcentral.com/htc-one-a9-arrives-sprint-starting-november-6

Those poor 3 people will have gotten ripped off big time! And they probably will buy it thinking they're buying an iPhone! [emoji6]

I am inclined to agree with you. Have been attempting to place a pre-order at sprint.com for the past hour and no dice! I can't imagine there's huge demand for this thing?

I checked the site a little bit after you posted and just checked again now it seems they were still doing some user interface updates and information available with a 9. I still don't like that out right price though and I'm unsure if that 399 price applies to the Sprint version or just unlocked versions of the device on htc.com site!

 

Edit:I just check for myself and the 399 preorder price is for the Sprint variant as well! That's much better deal since you get the Google Play Music for 6 months and the protection as well!

That's a scary small battery. Especially since it lacks the super quick charge of USB type C.

it actually has qc 2.0 and is forward capable with qc 3.0...

The unlocked varient is interesting as it supports vzw but not there cdma network. It can be used and activated via vo-lte exclusively. Test devices of sorts of things to come!

Lets just call the phone what it is, it is an iphone ripoff that cost $400 with mid tier specs.  Why would i buy this phone over the Nexus 5X or the Nexus 6P.  Matter of fact, you can find the M9 online for about the same price.  This is phone is DOA and stuff like this is why HTC as a corporation is where it is at today...

2150mAh battery on an android phone? Come on, HTC.

Battery is small indeed but from what I heard it performs much better than what most might think from a 2150 battery.

The 5 pin structure of micro USB is what holds back the charging rate versus the 24 pins of USB C. I'm not sure what improvements quick charge 3.0 will bring.

According to Qualcomm charges to 80% in 35 mins. With a 2150 mah battery. That is damn quick!

This post may be helpful. Due to Droidlifes testing included in that post. A QC 3.0 may delivery necessary amperage for TYPE C USB power spec devices as well!

    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:   
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use. 
    • https://www.pcmag.com/news/exclusive-we-found-t-mobiles-secret-weapon-against-c-band Seems like he's seeing: B2+B66 +n41+n41 n71+n41 Not that it really matters, I suppose:
