HTC: One A9 design coming to One M and Desire series

Peter, 22 October, 2015

Like the HTC One A9 design? Good, because you're about to see a lot more of it. "Starting with the One A9, our design language will enter a different and fashionable phase," says Jack Tong, president of HTC North Asia.

Both the One M series (the flagships) and the Desire series (which covers anything from entry-level to upper mid-range) will adopt the sleek look of the A9, which is an evolution of the HTC One design.

Mr. Tong didnít say anything on the topic of material though. Much of A9's cool factor comes from the aluminum unibody and the One M series will almost certainly stick with metal. We're curious to see what will happen to the top dogs in the Desire lineup though.



The fate of other design elements like the 2.5D glass over the AMOLED screen is unclear as well. We do hope HTC makes stereo speakers work with this new design though.
