According to Blass (also known as @Evleaks), the HTC One X9 packs a MediaTek processor; a 5.5-inch full-HD display; 2GB RAM; 16GB storage, and a 3000mAh battery. The One X9 is said to sport a 13-megapixel rear as well as 4-megapixel UltraPixel front camera.

In a tweet, Blass refuted claims by the report and said, "All wrong."

Recently, a teaser image of the HTC One X9 was leaked on Weibo. The image showed the One X9's display along with the BoomSound front speakers at the top and bottom.

Also, since the sentences were in English inside the teaser, it is speculated to reach English-speaking regions as well.
