We now know just about everything about HTC's upcoming One A9 'Aero' smartphone, thanks to phone leaker Evan Blass, aka @evleaks. If he's right, it's not the high-end, 10-core model we were expecting, but rather a mid-ranger aimed at style-conscious types, with no less than six color options. The skeptical among us might notice that it vaguely resembles an iPhone 6s, and in fact has three color choices that are nigh-on identical to Apple's latest handsets (rose gold, carbon gray and silver). But it's otherwise a pale imitation of that phone (and other HTC One devices), with a middling Snapdragon 617 CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 1080p screen.

That said, it should serve its purpose with a decent-sounding 13-megapixel backside illuminated, optically stabilized camera (4-megapixel selfie cam), fingerprint sensor and MicroSD card expansion. It's also relatively thin at 7mm and, given the name, we presume lightweight. Despite Mr. Blass's stellar track record for leaks, we'd again remind you that this is still a rumor, so plan (or don't plan), accordingly. If it does pan out, though, it's supposed to arrive in November with carriers like Sprint.
