HTC One A9 specs surface: Deca-core CPU w/ 4GB RAM
As with previous handsets that had their specs leaked via benchmarking the device prior to its official announcement, the long-rumored flagship HTC One A9 has been reported to have surfaced and it packs with it some monster internals.
Codenamed Aero, the results from GeekBench shows that the HTC One A9 is powered by a 10-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor partnered by 4GB of RAM. The CPU is made up of two Cortex-A72 cores, while the 8 other Cortex-A53 cores is split into two different groups so as to rev up its performance to the maximum but at the same time prove efficient in terms of power consumption.
Connectivity-wise, an LTE Cat. 6 is onboard that claims will reach theoretical peak download speeds of up to 300Mbps and 50Mbps of upload speed. The benchmark test reveals a multi-core score of 5,884. This shows that MediaTek’s Helio X20 combined with a generous RAM trumps the Samsung Exynos 7420 which currently tops the benchmarking list at 4,387.
Finally, running the entire show is Android 5.1.1 operating system to make sure user experience is smooth and snappy.
The company has already sent out invites on September 29, so it might be at this event the One A9 will make its official debut. Stay tuned.
