Most of the specs were leaked earlier this month and while some of the information was a little bit off — like the amount of RAM under the hood — just about everything else we saw about the upcoming HTC One X9 has turned out to be true. For some strange reason, HTC felt it apt to hold a press event in China today to officially unveil the HTC One X9, a midrange Android phone that no one will mistake for a high-end flagship.

Following the rest of the pack these days, the HTC One X9 comes with a 5.5-inch display, but HTC has opted for just a 1080p resolution here. Running the show is a MediaTek X10 Helio SoC, along with 3GB of RAM. Other specs include 32GB of internal storage, microSD expansion up to 2TB, an all-metal design, capacitive buttons, 13MP rear camera, UltraPixel front camera, 3000mAh connectivity and the usual array of wireless radios.

The good news is that HTC has brought back its BoomSound front-facing stereo speakers for the One X9. So, that’s something.

The specs are perfectly decent, I suppose, but opting for a MediaTek chip and just a 1080p resolution might leave something to be desired. Not that it really matters for most of us, since there are no plans to release the HTC One X9 outside of China. It’s being listed at 2399 Yuan, which works out to US$370 or just over $500 Canadian. This puts it in the same range as something like the Nexus 5X or Moto X Play.
