The HTC One Officially Announced

images (1)Recently, the HTC One was announced to the public, after months of speculation about its features. This device, the latest Android flagship from the Taiwanese manufacturer, was formerly believed to be named as the HTC M7. It received high levels of anticipation from smartphone enthusiasts and is one of the first high profile smartphone launches of the year.


It seems that much of the speculation made about the phone was actually correct. There were assumptions made that it would be sporting a 4.7 inch LCD3 display with full HD 1080p resolution. Most other phones with this resolution use a inch display, but the HTC One’s smaller screen means it has a higher pixel density.


The phone only has a camera resolution of 4 megapixels which is of course much lower than that of most similar devices. However, with the use of the HTC’s new ‘Ultra Pixel’ technology, it can multiply the pixels that are available and allow more light to be captured so impressive image quality will be produced. The HTC One’s camera has the capacity to capture HD footage and packs a handy image stabilisation feature (gyroscope based), similar to that found on the Nokia Lumia 920.

Even though the phone does not have expandable storage options when it comes to storage, its internal memory capacity is already big enough for the majority of users as it comes in 32 GB and 64GB options. The phone also has LTE and NFC connectivity features, alongside Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.


The HTC One is amongst the thinnest phones to date from HTC, measuring just 9.3 mm. With its aluminium unibody design and the red, black and white silver options available, the device certainly looks the part, with styling which could be described as iPhone-like.


Next month, the phone will be available in the UK from all major networks. Until then we will keep you posted with developments and news on the HTC One, and bring you the cheapest HTC One offers when the phone lands in the UK.
