Something makes me believe that some of the smartphone manufacturers are finally starting to consider the complaints of their customers. The Nexus handsets co-developed by Google and third party companies have been highly appreciated, especially for their clean user interface and up-to-date software updates.
Despite the facilities provided by the customized user interfaces developed by the smartphone manufacturers, there are still enough users who want a clean Android. This is one of the reasons why, the Samsung Galaxy S4, a highly appreciated flagship smartphone, will be launched in a Google Edition, with a Nexus-like Android Jelly Bean interface. The guys at Geek.com write that HTC One will be the next popular flagship smartphone that will be released in a Google Edition.
If for the Samsung Galaxy S4 the Google Edition is more like a trifle meant to please a small amount of customers (because the sales are doing great anyway), a HTC One Google Edition would be a more important product for the Taiwanese company.
A HTC One Google Edition would be capable to boost the sales of the flagship smartphone. Despite the fact that the Taiwan-based phone maker is bragging that the HTC One sells are on the right track (reports are saying that 5 million units were already shipped), HTC still needs all the help in the world to avoid an unwanted situation.
If giving ditching Sense 5 and Blinkfeed mean better sales for HTC, then they will have to work around the clock to introduce the new version as fast as possible. One is reportedly generating big profits for HTC and the company needs them to help them get out of the current situation.
After we thought that HTC is making a comeback as a big player of the smartphone market, the company received a big hit these days: the launch of First, the Facebook Home smartphone, was cancelled in Great Britain. With a promising hardware platform, the HTC First could have been that mainstream compact smartphone everybody would buy.
Of course, the HTC One Google Edition would share the technical specifications of the current model. Therefore the HTC One Google Edition will pack a 4.7-inch Super LCD3 display with full HD resolution, and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset with four Krait 300 cores at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU. The technical specs list also includes 2 GB of RAM and 32/64 GB of internal storage (microSD cards are not supported).
The connectivity features of the HTC One include WiFi in all standards, LTE, NFC chip, IR blaster, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0, and 3.5 mm audio jack. The flagship smartphone boats a 4 megapixel camera with UltraPixel technology that is capable of recording full HD videos, while coming with 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.
