HTC One Introduced with UltraPixel Camera and Quad-Core Snapdragon

HTC One SmartphoneHTC fans have been waiting on this for a while, but today the company finally unveiled the new HTC One. No letter variant like the V, S, X, X+, or XL, this is simply the One. It’s HTC’s new flagship phone and they’re pulling out the stops to produce a phone they hope will be the preeminent Android handset.

HTC One Specs

Up front on the One is a 4.7-inch 1080p screen with a 468 PPI density. No surprise, it runs Android Jelly Bean (4.1.2) with the HTC Sense 5 skin. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core chip running at 1.7GHz and carries 2GB of RAM, with 32 and 64GB storage size variants (no expansion card slot). Connectivity is by Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi a/ac/b/g/n, and it’s NFC-capable. A 2300mAh Li-polymer battery brings the juice, and it’s all wrapped up in an aluminum case. It measures 137.4mm tall x 68.2mm wide x 9.3mm thick and weighs in at 143 grams.

HTC One Cameras

HTC’s camera strategy is to go with fewer pixels, but make them better pixels. They call the new technology UltraPixel and claim each of the 4 megapixels in the One’s rear-facing camera collects 300 percent more light than standard sensors, after pulling it through an f/2.0 lens. It’s also got optical image stabilization and HDR capabilities, and will shoot 1080p, 60fps video. The front-facing camera is 2.1MP and can also do HDR.

It will be available this march around the world, ready for HSPA and LTE networks.

Will the HTC One be your next phone or is there something else on the horizon or already here that’s caught your eye? Let us know in the comments.

    I hope it doesn’t take too long for the HTC One to arrive in the States. Judging by all of the good things I’ve heard about it, I think it could be a good phone to upgrade to. I would say that I’m most excited for the 1080p display that the HTC One has. I like watching New Girl and other shows on my phone, mostly because the only time I can keep up with them is on my way to work at DISH. It safe to say the DISH Anywhere app, which lets me stream live and recorded shows anywhere I go, working on the full HD display should be a great experience.

    Hoi Dave,
    thanks for the good written article.
    To answer your question I tend to lead towards the BlackBerry BB10. From what I’ve seen sofar in reviews it looks amazing and is probably more in my price range. This HTC One is definitely out of my price range.

    Take care,
