The New HTC One


Making its debut today is the latest iteration of the HTC One smartphone. Retaining an all-aluminum unibody exterior, the new One boasts a larger 5.0″ 1080p HD display – an improvement over last year’s 4.7″ screen – along with softened rounded edges for a more ergonomic fit in the palm of your hand, and dual forward-facing stereo speakers. Powered by Android Kit Kat, the phone now eschews the social media-centric Blinkfeed as a default setting, opting instead to employ HTC’s Sense 6 skin right out of the box. Additional features include new Motion Launch gesture commands, dual rear-facing camera lenses for sharper images, and an upgraded forward-facing lens that’s gone from 2.1 megapixels to 5.0 megapixels. Retailing for $199 USD for the 16GB version and $249 USD for the 32GB version, the new HTC One hits Verizon in-store and online today while AT&T and Sprint – offering the phone online now – will see it hit their brick-and-mortar locations April 10.
