HTC One A9 of­fers all-me­tal de­sign with smooth curves

NEW YORK — HTC has un­veiled the lat­est ver­sion of its One smart­phone, tout­ing its com­bi­na­tion of sleek de­sign with the lat­est An­droid soft­ware.

The HTC One A9 goes on sale glob­ally this month and of­fers an all-me­tal and glass de­sign with smooth curves. In ad­di­tion to the tra­di­tional smart­phone col­ors of gray, sliver and gold, it also comes in gar­net red.

The phone is the first out­side of Google’s own Nexus line to fea­ture that com­pany’s Marsh­mal­low soft­ware at launch. And it’s the first reg­u­lar-sized HTC phone to have a fin­ger­print sen­sor — a fea­ture al­ready stan­dard on phones made my larger ri­vals Ap­ple and Sam­sung.

US pre­orders for sil­ver and gray phones are now be­ing taken through HTC’s web­site for $400. The other col­ors will be avail­able within weeks.

Fea­tur­ing a su­per-thin me­tal frame with el­e­gant fin­ish, the HTC One A9 of­fers 5” full high def­i­ni­tion, 1080p, and en­ergy ef­fi­cient screen. It also has an ex­pand­able SD card mem­ory and edge-to-edge Corn­ing Go­rilla Glass screen.
