HTC just announced its latest flagship smartphone, the HTC One. Though, I’m sure they wouldn’t mind if you dropped the HTC part of the name and just called it “The One.” Pretty clever, I guess. The One sports a 4.7-inch 1080p display (pixel density: 468ppi) and comes with either a white or black trim on its silver or black aluminum unibody chassis. As for the internals, the One packs one of Qualcomm’s new quad-core Snapdragon 600 chipsets clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB or 64GB of internal flash storage.
The company also focused on improving mobile sound quality, as it added a pair of front-facing speakers complete with their own amplifiers, which the company calls BoomSound. I take it the marketing department lost their creativity while naming that feature.
Additionally, one thing many people may appreciate about the new HTC One is the new and improved Sense 5 UI. Sense 5 is definitely the cleanest, least clunky version of HTC’s custom Android UI to date, which is good to see.
As for when you’ll be able to get your hands on one of these, HTC has said that the One will ultimately be available from 185+ wireless carriers around the world starting in March, in the U.S., AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile will be the companies who will carry HTC’s latest flagship.
Thanks to Phones 4 U for providing the HTC One hands on video.
