The latest leaked images of the HTC One A9 Aero are making the rounds and they illustrate a disturbing and sad trend for HTC. These shots were accidentally leaked by Orange Boutique (now removed) and are the final press renderings for the device. They look almost exactly like an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6S, right down to the protruding camera lens, the polished metal ring on the back, and the way the glass curves into the casing on the front.
Of course, the antennae stripe on the back is very similar to the iPhone, but that is something that HTC actually did first in older designs. In this case, even the overall shape of the device is a dead ringer for an iPhone. It seems obvious that HTC wants to capitalize on the same design language that Apple is currently employing.
Regardless, this seems like a desperate ploy for HTC to stay relevant in the mobile space. Perhaps the old adage is true here, "Desperate times call for desperate measures."
Be sure to check out all of the images in the thread below to see multiple angles.
