You won’t have to google the “release date” words alongside the HTC One because it’s official as of today. HTC has just unveiled its new flagship which was previously known as HTC M7. The HTC One will be available all over the place at exactly 184 carriers in 80 countries. It looks like the company doesn’t want to make any mistakes this time and want’s to make sure that practically everyone will have access to its new device. Among the plethora of carriers there is Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T in the United Stares, as well the major carriers in the United Kingdom.
The company know that the competition in the mobile market is fierce with rivals like Samsung and Sony waiting around the corner, so they have to offer the whole package if it wants to survive namely specs, software, design and functions. The appearance of the HTC One is not so surprising because several leaked images appeared before the company showed off the smartphone. The only thing that wasn’t sure was if the HTC One would sport the necessary hardware to compete with the Galaxy S4.
So, the announced device will sport a 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 display with a pixel resolution of 1920 x 1080 , a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core 1.7 GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. At first glance, the internal storage seems pretty impressive, but unfortunately there isn’t any microSD card slot featured, so the memory can’t be further expanded.
The rumors about HTC implementing a new technology to the One’s shooter were actually true as the camera has only 4MP, but ultrapixels. The GPU is Andreno 32, while the battery of the HTC One is a 2300 mAh one. In terms of connectivity, the handset comes with Infrared blaster, LTE/3G, GPS&GLONASS, Bluetooth 4 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac. As for the operating system, the HTC One will run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, Sense 5.
The Taiwan-based company has announced at today’s press event that the HTC One will become available for purchase on selected markets starting next month.
