HTC exec defends One A9’s design: Apple copies us

by John_A

You don’t need perfect vision to see that HTC’s latest smartphone, the One A9, is nearly identical to Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6s. But the Taiwan-based company swears Apple copied its design first, not the other way around, pointing to its One M7 and M8 flagships as proof — both came out before the iPhone 6 series. According to Want ChinaTimes, during a recent press briefing in Taiwan, HTC’s North Asia President Jack Tong responded to claims calling the A9 an iPhone clone. “We’re not copying. We made a unibody metal-clad phone in 2013 [the year the M7 was released],” he said. “It’s Apple that copies us in terms of the antenna design on the back.”
