HTC is still going in the background, unveiling the HTC One X9 for the Chinese market for now

HTC haven’t released a lot in Australia lately, and though there was some speculation we’d see the mid-range HTC One A9 coming to our fair shores, there’s not been any confirmation just yet. While that happens, HTC have been working on something else, the HTC One X9, which has been unveiled over Christmas for the Chinese market.

Though a bit cheaper than the One A9, the One X9 (carrying the X in its title) is is no slouch in the specs department, despite its relatively modest price tag. Featuring a MediaTek Helio X10 chipset, a 64-bit Octa-Core CPU which is no slouch, the HTC One X9 also has 32 GB of storage with MicroSD extra, and 3 GB of RAM built in. A 3,000 mAh battery powers this phone along, with a 13MP rear camera and 4MP UltraPixel front camera.

Available in China only for now, the US $370 price tag is certainly appealing for a good looking and powerful phone. We’ll be talking to HTC in January after their Christmas/New Year close down to find out what might be coming to Australia in the new year.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.

Great specs. Using Mediatek means HTC is providing a powerful processor at a lower price.

The specs are very similar to the Letv X500, which can be had for around $AU270. Has anyone considered Chinese phones? The only downside is that none of them have L700.
