Images of the HTC One A9 (aka Aero) prototype have surfaced online giving us a glimpse of the upcoming device ahead of the 20 October launch event.

Twitter spy, OnLeaks, has released a series of HTC One A9 pictures, which show that the phone's design is a bit similar to Apple's iPhone 6 series.

The leaked images show the phone flaunting an all-metal body like the company's flagship One series, but the curved corners and white plastic strip on the top and the bottom are identical to Apple iPhone 6. The only difference between the two is that the HTC phone houses the camera module in the middle, whereas the Apple device comes with the snapper in the top-left corner. [check out the images below]

As far as the internal hardware is concerned, HTC One A9 is said to sport a five-inch full HD display and finger-print sensor on the home button.

It is expected to have Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Snapdragon 617 series SoC (System on Chip), Adreno 405 graphics engine, 2GB RAM, 16GB and a 2,150 mAh battery.
