It’s nearly identical to the One M9 in terms of design, featuring a metal body with curved edges and two slim horizontal lines at the top and bottom. The HTC One X9 is a premium mid-range phablet that measures 153.9×75.9x8mm and weights 170 grams. It kept the lower line, while at the top it looks more like the Nexus 6P.
