HTC have officially unveiled the HTC One which is their new flagship Android smartphone that will land in the UK next month. We're led to believe that HTC's mobile will be available from all major UK operators, but so far only EE and Three have confirmed they'll stock the HTC One.
What is the specification of the HTC One ?
The HTC One has an amazing 4.7 inch full HD touch-screen which means that it runs at a resolution of 1920*1080 pixels (or 1080p). That gives HTC's smartphone a PPI of 468 which blows away the iPhone 5 (326 ppi) , Samsung Galaxy S3 (306 ppi) and even Sony's Xperia Z (440 ppi).
While, the HTC One is powered by a quad-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon processor providing true next-gen power. Snapdragon's chip is backed up by 2GB of RAM, while the mobile will ship with 32GB of on-board memory.
When it comes to connectivity the HTC One is fully loaded because it supports 4G LTE, 3G , WiFi , Bluetooth and NFC. The HTC One is also the first device to feature "HTC Boomsound" which includes dual front-facing speakers, a built-in amplfier and Beats Audio technology.
The HTC One is the first smartphone to feature an Ultrapixel camera featuring a best-in-class f/2.0 aperture lens and a breakthrough sensor. The 4.3 Ultrapixel lens gathers 300 per cent more light than standard smartphone cameras ensuring amazing shots every-time.
The rear-facing Ultrapixel camera can record 1080p video and includes multi-axis optical image stabilisation. While, the front-facing 2.1 mega-pixel snapper can also record HD video and is perfect for video calling.
Android Jelly Bean & HTC Sense 5.0
HTC's One comes pre-loaded with Android Jelly Bean meaning it benefits from all the latest in mobile technology. Furthermore, it comes pre-loaded with HTC Sense 5.0 the brand new version of HTC's custom user-interface.
One amazing new feature is "HTC BlinkFeed" which transforms the home-screen into a single live stream of personally relevant information. Content provided by Blinkfeed includes social networking updates, news, photos and more from over 1,400 media sources.
The HTC One can also act as a remote control and interactive guide for most TV's , receivers and set-top boxes thanks to HTC Sense TV. Could HTC's new feature mean the end for Logitech Harmony range and other universal remotes ?
When will the HTC One be available to buy in the UK ?
The HTC One is expected to land in the UK in the middle of March when it'll be available in a choice of either stunning silver or beautiful black. As soon as we get more news on the price of the smartphone we'll let you know !
3G hope to review the HTC One very soon and we'll looking to compare HTC's new smartphone with Sony's Xperia Z which we recently declared the "King of Android".
