The only thing we know officially about the new HTC One is that HTC will introduce it on March 25. Unofficially, we know just about everything else thanks to waves of leaked information. (About the only surprise we could have at this point is if HTC itself leaked the phone on its own blog.)
Early in the week GSMArena found the full specs and a sales guide for the unannounced HTC One. The rundown of specifications confirms what we’ve heard prior: The phone will have a 5-inch, 1080p display, run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core chip with 2.3 GHz clock speed and have a 2600 mAh battery. HTC appears to be moving to a nano SIM with the new One and in a move that will make many Android fans happy, include a microSD card slot for memory expansion.
Google is reportedly working with LG on a smartwatch of its own that could be shown off at June’s Google I/O developer event and it would surely run on Android. But a wearables SDK would make it easier for other hardware partners to build Android-based wearables with wide device compatibility. Why offer such an SDK? Samsung has already given one reason: The company’s new smartwatch and health tracker both run on Tizen, not Android, so Google gains no value or data from them.
