HTC One X9 official with 5.5-inch display, unibody metal design

HTC‘s One X9 is finally official! The company unveiled its latest smartphone in China on Thursday, revealing a sleek metal handset at a budget-friendly price.

The new phone packs a unibody metal design, which HTC says takes 300 hours (12.5 days) and 50 steps to complete. The One X9 looks pretty nice, though it’s not exactly a huge departure from the recently released One A9. The biggest visual change is probably the rear camera, which now sits flush with the rest of the device.

The new phone packs a 5.5-inch 1080p display, an octa-core MediaTek processor, a 3000mAh battery with fast charging, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and RAW photo support, a front-facing UltraPixel shooter, and Dolby speakers.

The HTC One X9 will cost 2,399 yuan (about $370) in China, making it the company’s cheapest One-branded device in recent memory. There’s still no word on an official release date, and as far as we can tell the new phone isn’t headed to the U.S. anytime soon.
