HTC One X9: Australian pricing and release date

Alex Kidman 5 April 2016 NEWS


HTC’s latest mid-range Android handset will be available outright or on Vodafone contract.

5 April 2016: While we await the official launch of the HTC One M10, HTC has also announced the HTC One X9. The handset will shortly be available on contract with Vodafone in Australia, or outright for $699 if you'd prefer to go with a month-to-month plan.

Vodafone will have an early exclusive on the HTC One X9 from 13 April 2016, while it’s expected in retail stores sometime in May.

As you'd expect given its mid-range status, if you want to buy it on a contract the associated handset repayments should be relatively low (and probably zero on higher-priced plans). Vodafone hasn’t announced its full contract pricing for the HTC One X9, but the launch release notes it’ll be available on the $40 plan with a $5 handset repayment, which means that higher tier plans are quite likely to bundle in the handset for free.

The HTC One X9 sells itself on its full metal body, a feature normally reserved for more premium priced handsets, as well as the inclusion of optical image stabilisation on its rear 13MP camera.

In specifications terms, here’s how the HTC One X9 stacks up.
