The upcoming beast from HTC looks like iPhone 6

Back in June, HTC CEO Cher Wang guaranteed that HTC would launch a new "hero product" this October.

The product is aimed to revive HTC’s core smartphone business. Recently leaked pictures by means of Twitter recommend that this device seems to be taking a leaf out of Apple's design book.

The device is codenamed as Aero. Pictures purportedly demonstrate the front and back of the upcoming phone.

They uncover a case that greatly looks like the back of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

In spite of the fact that, this comparison is slightly unfair considering that Apple's use of metal cases with inset plastic lines to let the phone signal escape was a design feature seen in HTC's One handsets first.

HTC Aero will be marketed as the A9 and will feature curved glass at the front. It will have a 5.2-inch quad HD display, a deca-core MediaTek X20 processor, 4GB RAM, and a 3,500mAh battery.

The camera will be above the antenna stripe. These specs are a long way from certain. However we may see a few distinctions when the handset is declared this October.

Still, it is difficult to envision any single phone overcoming HTC's present money crisis even with Apple's outline in play.
