Sprint-bound HTC Aero reportedly coming in November carrying "One" branding
Although many consumers around the world believe the HTC One M9 to be a wonderful device, the flagship might not be doing as well as the company had hoped. With reports trickling in claiming that there have been roughly 43% fewer shipments for the One M9 than the One M8, it’s not irrational to think HTC might have something up its sleeve that could make up for the One M9’s loss. So when popular leaker @evleaks gave some insight on the potential release of a new handset called the “HTC Aero”, many folks began speculating that this could be the hero device we’ve all been waiting for.
[related_videos align=”left” type=”custom” videos=”604007,596131,591241,596037″]But if recent tweets from the leaker prove true, the Aero might not come to market as a flagship device. According to the tweet, the HTC Aero will make its way to Sprint in November, among other places. The handset will reportedly also be a member of the One family, though it will be classified as an “intermediate” device. Traditionally, smartphones classified in the “One” category tend to be on the high-end side, so it’ll certainly be interesting to see what the company has planned.
HTC CEO Cher Wang recently told us that the company’s hero smartphone was slated to launch sometime in October, though no other details were given regarding that handset. Could HTC’s hero device turn out to be the Aero, or are they two completely different handsets? The only thing we can do at this time is speculate and wait for more details to surface, but there’s certainly no harm in that. If these leaks prove true, what do you think the Aero will bring to the table? Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
