HTC is planning to release a new smartphone on October 20th and a model has just been spotted passing through the FCC and GFC, all but confirming that the HTC One A9 is heading to the US.

According to the listings, there appear to be three HTC One A9 models on the way. There’s what looks to be an international version sporting various network bands and the 2PQ9100 model number, which might be called the A9u. There’s also a 2PQ9120 variant which supports LTE bands 2,4,5,7 and 12, which are commonly used by US carriers. A third 2PQ9300 model supports LTE bands 25 and 26 additionally, which are both specific to the Sprint network.
