If you thought HTC had taken design cues from Apple's iPhone 6 or 6s for the One A9, wait till you see its ad for the smartphone.
HTC responded to recent accusations of One A9 copying Apple's iPhone design, with North Asia President Jack Tong denying that their just announced phone is an iPhone clone at a press conference today.
It's becoming increasingly difficult for manufacturers to design and develop any type of new product without it somehow managing to make it into the public domain prior to an official unveiling. Granted, so-called "leaks" are occasionally instigated by the company itself to drum up pre-release interest in the hardware, but more often than not the information that makes it out before it's meant to is down to an insider. The latest smartphone leak that we are now privy to focuses on the HTC One A9, and gives us our clearest look at the hardware to date.
