Oh look, HTC is making another flagship (and it actually sounds quite good)

The One X9 could be the company's best handset to date

The HTC One A9 has barely had time to unbox itself, but that hasn't stopped rumours of an all-new HTC flagship from hitting our gadget radar.

A press image of a handset called the HTC One X9 has appeared on Chinese site Weibo, showing off some rather impressive specs.

If true, the handset will land with a 5in 2K screen, and Qualcomm's eagerly-awaited Snapdragon 820 processor, along with 4GB of RAM, and a massive 3500mAh battery.

A 23MP camera and front-facing 4MP UltraPixel snapper are also on the cards, as are dual front-facing BoomSound speakers.

The handset itself appears to retain HTC's signature curves and slim metal build, though it's hard to make much out from one low-res press shot.

There's no official confirmation, or even a launch date as of yet, but given HTC's leaky past, we expect to hear more on the One X9 soon.
