After a lot of speculation and wait, HTC has finally unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, which the company is positioning to be a top-contender in the smartphone arena. Packed with a 4.7-inch 1080p display, a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 chip and an UltraPixel camera, this handset combines beauty and brains both.
HTC’s flagship releases have failed to gain much traction in the past. Apparently, the company was tired of being ignored and decided to dish out something really good this time. After all the work and efforts, HTC finally unveiled its HTC One handset at the NYC event today.
For a quick rehash of exactly what this new handset packs, here’s a detail list of hardware specs and software features.
Specifications and features:
- 1.7Ghz Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 600 chip
- 4.7-inch 1080p Super LCD 3 display
- 2GB RAM
- Weight: 143 grams
- Measurement: 5.4 x 2.7 x 0.37 inches
- 2300 mAh Li-polymer battery
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Option of 32GB or 64GB storage space (no microSD slot for extension)
- WiFi connectivity
- Dual stereo speakers
- 2.1-megapixel front camera which can shoot 1080p video
- 4-megapixel rear camera which HTC is touting as the UltraPixel camera – because each pixel of this camera can gather 300 percent more light than peer camera sensors in smartphones
Rather than going with the conventional finish, HTC has put on a metallic outlook for HTC One. In all, the handset is a beautiful combination of excellent top-end hardware and great features. Moreover, that UltraPixel camera seems promising and we are eager to see how well it can perform.
Thanks to this handset, HTC seems fairly eligible to enter the big smartphone league now. With HTC One, the company stands the chance of a good come-back. Let’s see how well HTC avails this chance.
As for the availability of the handset, the official PR reveals, “The new HTC One will be available globally through more than 185 mobile operators and major retailers in more than 80 regions and countries beginning in March.
