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!

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
