Watch out, iPhone 5: HTC is shedding its plastic polycarbonate shells in favor of a sleek, all-aluminum "zero-gap" metal unibody with easy-to-hold tapered edges. The company's new flagship phone, HTC One, was unveiled today, and in terms of industrial design and internal specs, HTC has come a long way since its last effort.
While the similarities between the HTC One and Apple's metal-clad iPhone 5 are hard to ignore, perhaps that likeness will position HTC ahead of the current best-selling Android, Samsung's Galaxy S III. We'll see how HTC's new smartphone fares when it rolls out in March on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. No mention of price and availability yet for US subscribers (surprise, surprise), but UK carriers announced that the phone will cost about $108 with a two-year contract.
Get to know the standout features, tech specs, and color offerings of the HTC One a little better, and let us know if you'll be rocking out to HTC's heavy metal smartphone this spring.
