The HTC One finally comes out of hiding! The HTC One, previously known as the M7 has at last become official! The HTC One has been finalized, announced and shown off to the world! No longer called the M7 the HTC One comes packing all the juicy details that were once rumored. But can it be HTC’s saving grace. Only time can answer that question, however the HTC One carries with it some amazing details that will put it ahead of the pack for at least a little while. The HTC One comes into this world with a set of features and a hardware build that can only be described as awesome!
Today HTC took to the stage and announced their long awaited HTC One. The device has gone through countless amounts of leaks and rumors all of which have led up to an amazing handset. The HTC one runs with the likes of Android version 4.1.2 and uses HTC’s latest in Sense UI version 5.0. Its sleek build measures in at a mere 9.3 mm thin and houses a 4.7 inch S-LCD 3 touch screen that provides its users with a full HD resolution of 1080×1920 at a whopping 468 pixels per inch. Internally she’ll pack in a 2300 mAh battery that will surely be put to work. The HTC One will use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 APQ8064T system chip that comes with a quad core 1.7 GHz processor, an Adreno 320 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory that leaves about 26 GB of user accessible storage. Unfortunately, HTC left out the expandable microSD option. The camera on the HTC One uses a 4 ultra pixel camera sensor that can record video in full 1080p HD. Now, before you knock its low rated 4 mega pixels, keep in mind that a high amount of mega pixels are not necessarily going to equate to better pictures. This is currently known as the “myth of the megapixel”. The idea here is that the current sensors in top model handsets use a sensor that offer a higher mega pixel rate with a 1.1um pixel sampling. The new HTC Zoe Ultrapixel camera uses a 2um pixel sensor that will allow for up to 330% more light absorption. While real world samples have yet to provide us with some visuals, in theory, the new Ultrapixel camera should provide better pictures in low light situations. Additionally the camera uses a 28 mm F/2.0 aperture with optical image stabilization. Additionally the new HTC One will come with GPS, A-GPS, Glonass, 4G LTE, HSPA, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, micro USB, HDMI via micro USB, DLNA, MHL, and NFC. There are many awesome small details that also accompany the new HTC One, check out this video for a few.
The HTC One unfortunately does not have too much pricing information tagging along with it however, the device is should be launched in “80 countries over 185 mobile retailers and operators” starting in March. Sprint, At&t and T-Mobile have all been confirmed they will be carrying the handset at an unknown price point. Anyone interested? Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think.
