HTC One Goes Hands On Before Official Announcement

HTC One hands-on

The debut of the HTC press event is less than an hour away, and the highly-anticipated One flagship is expected to show up there. The leaks about HTC One and the other terminals that will debut today have intensified and the video below is the peak, being a HTC One hands-on video made by the guys at Mobile Geeks.

If you wondered how the HTC One aka HTC M7 looks like you will be able to see it in the video below: full HD display, front-facing dual-speakers, and unexpectedly thin.

We’ve already heard about the technical specifications of the HTC One: quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, 2 GB of RAM, 4.7-inch display, and an ultrapixel camera. What impressed me the most is that the HTC One is really thin and elegant. The user interface looks great, the screen is amazingly clear and each design element that was a gossip subject has now been confirmed.

There’s also some kind of social network feed displayed on the 4.7-inch screen, which reminded me of Google Plus and Flipboard, and we also get to see that the display has large viewing angles. It is a pity that the dude that went hands-on with the HTC One didn’t set the display brightness to maximum.

What intrigues me is that there are only two capacitive buttons under the display and I still didn’t understand whether the HTC logo is also a capacitive button. The volume buttons are discreet and elegant, the handset is slightly curved and it apparently has a metallic back case and a camera section delimited in the upper end.

There’s also Beats Audio technology on board and a camera with pretty big lens. Stay tuned as we will return with more details later today, as soon as the Taiwan-based company will officially show the HTC One to the world.
