Mobile phone manufacturers always try to replicate what Apple does because they did the iPhone in the first place. While Android phones are good in their own way, they are still not an iPhone which is what HTC seems to be trying to solve with this new launch.
The official picture of the HTC A9 is out. Does the name sound too familiar? It’s not just the name but the entire phone which is a poor replica of the actual iPhone 6S. Android users hardly want a phone like this because it looks made for the iOS 9 operating system.
The slim design with curved body, metal frame and the Samsung-like home button is expected to bring the best of both worlds together. It is really hard to tell at the moment whether HTC will face success with the A9 but it is evident that they have stooped to a new low, trying to ensure that they don’t lose the market.
Instead of fighting for survival, the company could consider making quality, original phones like Motorola Moto G to spring back to action. Will they?
