HTC One A9s unleashed: a perplexing successor

HTC is finally breaking its IFA 2016 silence, but the noise it is making might not fall on receptive ears. As speculated before, the Taiwanese manufacturer has unveiled the HTC One A9s, the follow-up to one of last year’s most notorious smartphones, the One A9.
