It is a case of who copied who between Apple and HTC when it comes down HTC’s new smartphone and Apple’s iPhone. This all began after HTC disclosed the A9, one in every of its latest Android-based mostly units.

The device in all seriousness, is a lifeless look-alike to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S in lots of respects. Nevertheless, HTC insists that it isn’t the one doing the copying right here. Actually, HTC claims that it’s Apple that copied its designs and never the opposite method round, a declare we’re positive won’t sit properly with some followers.

“We’re not copying,” in accordance to Jack Tong, president of HTC North Asia. “We made a uni-physique metallic-clad phone in 2013.”

“It is Apple that copies us when it comes to the antenna design on the again,” Tong continued.

“The A9 is made thinner and extra light-weight than our earlier metallic-clad telephones. This can be a change and evolution, and we’re not copying.” Tong added.

Customers might recall prior to now when one among HTC executives said that the A9 is a superb various to Apple’s line of iPhone units. Whereas that doesn’t show that HTC has certainly copied Apple’s device, it does say quite a bit when it comes right down to the place the minds of the designers have been at when the A9 was nonetheless on the drafting board.

The new HTC A9 isn’t a powerhouse by any means. It’s all about having a strong design that strikes a correct stability between specifications and price. It comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor and a 13-megapixel rear camera. The RAM is round 2GB to 3GB, and every thing brings the price as much as $ four hundred. Not precisely low cost, however for what the HTC A9 gives, we view this as very affordable.

The argument might be resolved if solely people will settle for the A9 for what it’s with out excited about the iPhone.Although, that may be troublesome because the design of the device simply screams iPhone to us.
