Blue HTC One to Debut by the End of the Year
When you have a great smartphone in your portfolio which sells pretty well, how can you make it even more attractive? Well, HTC thought it should add a new color option for the HTC One, according to a photo released by @evleaks.
The HTC One already comes with a gorgeous case which is highly appreciated by the customers because of the materials that were used for its construction: aluminium and ceramics. The Silver HTC One seems to be the the public’s favorite color, but the Black version looks great, as well.
As you probably know, both Samsung and Nokia have their smartphones available in lots of body liveries and it seems that HTC will have a similar approach for its flagship smartphone. Besides the Silver, Black, and Red HTC One model, the Taiwan-based phone maker will also launch a Blue version of its flagship smartphone.
But, of course, the color you choose for your smartphone is a matter of tastes. Some like their smartphones to be black, other like them white, and these are the two most common body colors options for the modern smartphones.The colored smartphones are usually preferred by the youths, but this is not fact.
I remind you that the HTC One was officially announced in February and released on the market a month later, reports saying that more than 5 million units were already shipped since its debut.
The HTC One features a 4.7-inch Super LCD3 display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and Gorilla Glass 2 protection. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 600 SoC with a quad-core Krait 300 CPU clocked at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU, plus 2 GB of RAM. The flagship smartphone developed by the Taiwanese phone maker comes with either 32 or 64 GB of internal storage and packs a Li-Po 2,300 mAh battery.
While most of the smartphone makers fitted 13 megapixel cameras on the back of their flagship devices (see Galaxy S4, Xperia Z, or Optimus G2), the HTC One comes with a 4 megapixel sensor with UltraPixel technology involving autofocus, LED flash, 1/3” sensor size, 2µm pixel size, simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, face and smile detection, optical image stabilization, and 1080p@30fps video recording. The front-facing camera is a 2.1 megapixel unit, also capable of recording full HD videos.
In terms of connectivity, the HTC One comes with HSPA+; LTE, Cat3, 50 Mbps UL, 100 Mbps DL, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/ac/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, NFC module, IR blaster, and microUSB 2.0 port.
HTC One comes pre-loaded with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 5 UI on top of it, but the company already rolled out the Android 4.2.2 update on certain areas of the globe. HTC also teamed-up with Google and launched a HTC One Google Play Edition that is running stock Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
