Early this morning Steve of OnLeaks posted some pictures to Twitter of an HTC device with some surprising design elements, it looks exactly like an iPhone. There were two images, one showing the front of the HTC Aero (also known as the One A9) and the other with it next to an iPhone.
The device has a metal case with the two white plastic bars across the top and bottom. It appears to have a glass front with a physical home button. All that we would need to do is move the camera and remove the HTC logo and the Aero would be almost 100% identical to the iPhone.
They often say that imitation is one of the highest forms of compliments but in this case HTC may have taken it a bit too far. Granted these images are a leak and may or may not be the actual device but OnLeaks does have a fairly decent record in this arena. It will be interesting to see if the final product looks as much like the iPhone as these images do.
