HTC Aero release date, price, specs and rumors

HTC isn't an - ahem - HTC One trick pony: the incoming and quite possibly code-named Aero will supplement the mighty One range, and according to HTC it's a "hero product". So what will it do, what will it cost and will you be pushing shoppers out of the way to get your hands on it? Here's everything we know so far about the HTC Aero price, release date, specifications and features.

HTC hasn't been having the best time of late. The HTC One M9 hasn't been selling as well as might be expected, and it hasn't had universally positive reviews either. As the Android marketplace becomes ever more crowded, it's becoming harder and harder for firms to truly impress. Will the Aero change that? 

HTC Aero release date

HTC hasn't confirmed the HTC Aero release date just yet, but it's down for a late-2015 release. We're hearing October, which ties in nicely with the lucrative pre-Christmas shopping period. 

HTC Aero price

We're expecting the HTC Aero price to be somewhat lower than the current HTC One, because while HTC tells us that the HTC Aero will be a "hero product" the handset will be targeting the mid-to-high range rather than supplanting the One as HTC's flagship. On Twitter, serial tech leaker @ricciolo1 says that "it's hard to BEAT htc in terms of design,+new"ONE"is truly HEROIC...the real trick? the PRICE.. ;) #HTCAero". The tweet has since been deleted, possibly by the typing police.

HTC Aero design and build quality

The HTC Aero will not be a "cheap-looking phone", HTC tells us, but it won't be similar to the HTC One devices either. While it'll follow the HTC aesthetics in terms of design approach and engineering, the HTC Aero should look and feel quite different to HTC's other handsets.

HTC Aero: display

Rumors say that the HTC Aero display will be a 2,560 x 1,400 Quad HD display behind the fourth generation of Corning's Gorilla Glass, but there's no indication of just how big that display will be. 

HTC Aero: processor and specs

The HTC Aero is expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor along with 3 or 4 GB of RAM.

HTC Aero: camera

A tasty rumor comes via, who reports that sources out of Vietnam "have suggested [the] HTC Aero will bring a revolutionary new camera technology." That makes sense given HTC's adventures in camera tech so far, which have included UltraPixel sensors and the HTC One M8's depth sensor. Vietnamese website HTCViet predicts a camera with an impressive f/1.9 aperture and RAW file format, which is a firm favorite among pro photographers.

HTC Aero: software

A late-2015 release surely means Android M, presumably with a flavor of HTC's TouchWiz on top.
