HTC blows The internet with the premiere of its smartphone One A9, which is having the similar design to the latest iPhone model.

At Taiwan launch of the One A9, HTC's Senior Executive Jack Tong (President, HTC North Asia) recently spoke at a press briefing on the copycat allegations, "We are not copying. We were the first to make a uni-body metal-clad phone in 2013. It's Apple who copied us regarding the antenna design on the back." he defended.

Nevertheless, the next smartphone brand will be in production soon.

A change is certainly necessary for HTC, as almost identical to its predecessor M9 earlier this year that failed to establish itself as a successful model and got a lot of criticism.

At the beginning of 2016, we are expecting the new One M10. Very soon we will find out more details about the design changes to the HTC portfolio.
