HTC rejects the accusations: it was Apple who copied the design of the One M7

A few days ago HTC unveiled its new one One A9device that seems to focus more on aesthetics than on hardware specifications, with a design judged by many too close to that of iPhone 6. An accusation promptly rejected by the company.

In fact, HTC North Asia president Jack Tong sees the question in a diametrically opposite way: according to him it was Apple who first copied the metal design with plastic parts on the back of the One M7making his iPhone 6 in a similar way. The design of One A9, in the executive’s opinion, is in fact a simple evolution of the original style of the series.

In recent days it was the same CEO Cher Wang to approach the latest addition to the HTC home to Apple devices, claiming that One A9 represents a good alternative to iPhoneshaving “a good balance between aesthetics, performance and ease of use”.
