We've announced our plans for pre-sale! All details are in this new blog post, with full plans to be released when pre-sale begins at 9:00am tomorrow (05/04/2013).
HTC's latest flagship, the new HTC One, was announced overnight at joint presentations in London and New York.
4.7" 1080p display. Android 4.1.2 "Jelly Bean" with HTC's New Sense. A quad-core Snapdragon processor. Ultrapixel Camera with image stabilisation. Full aluminium body. Twin forward-facing stereo speakers.
While the specs on paper are impressive, where this new superphone really shines is in the experience.
What we can tell you though is that the HTC One will work great on our new 4G network which we've recently started testing.
Although we don't have too many other details right now, we'll be back here on the blog to announce some shortly.
In the meantime though, we'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
HTC has given its take on Android a complete overhaul. The 3D flip-clocks and glossy icons have been stamped flat for a more clean and minimal aesthetic.
HTC BlinkFeed introduces a brand new way to consume content on the go; bringing your news, social updates and calendar appointments to the forefront in a Flipboard-inspired interface.
HTC reckon that we've been bamboozled by the "megapixel myth". Its new Ultrapixel camera uses a smaller number of physical pixels in favour of larger ones that capture more light.
Add in higher quality sensor and optical image stabilisation and it delivers some of the best mobile photography results we've ever seen, especially in low light environments.
When you open the Camera App on the HTC One, it immediately begins recording. When you press the shutter key, it takes the previous second of footage and two more afterwards to deliver a "living photo".
The best part is you can play back this short video and snap full resolution photos right from the footage, ensuring you always catch the best moment even if it happened before you hit the button.
In what's sure to be a boon for those who love to show off videos on their phone (and a nuisance for commuters sharing a carriage with somebody who's forgotten their headphones), the HTC One features twin, stereo, front-facing speakers backed up with Beats Audio integration.
Our early tests have blown us away with the clarity and volume of sound this sturdy pocket stereo produces.
We've been quietly testing the One for a few weeks now, so we've asked our handset testers for their initial thoughts on the HTC One.
"I love having all my feeds on the home screen, it makes being able to stay up to date with everything important to me really easy and quick. I also love the battery life, having a cutting edge smartphone with a large screen easily lasting a full day and more is a big plus for me!"
- Lawrence Sank, Device Portfolio Manager
"The overall feel of New Sense is so much nicer too. Everything is just so “clean” and well finished, it feels miles ahead of anything else running Android right now. It feels trimmed down and much more efficient."
- Bruno Ferreira, Social Media Representative
"The Beats music really rocks my socks off and the HD screen is crystal clear!"
- Jeremy Evans, Technical Support Specialist
