HTC has made the follow up to its successful 2013 flagship official: the new HTC One.
Leaks on the new HTC One were plentiful this year, and they were spot on. Coming with a curvier brushed metal body in Amber Gold, Gunmetal Gray and Glacial Silver, the new HTC One features a 5-inch 1080p display (knowing HTC it’s going to be one of the best you’ve ever seen), 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801, 2GB of RAM, a 2600mAh battery, enhanced BoomSound speakers, up to 32GB of internal storage and support for microSD cards up 128GB.
The camera is yet again one of the One’s most unique features. This year HTC has put a “Duo Camera” on the One, with one Ultrapixel sensor and one depth sensor. This will allow for Lytro-like focusing (the ability to adjust focal points after shooting) and will offer higher detail than the previous generation One. There’s also a 5MP wide angle front-facing camera.
Of course there are a handful of new software features included in the new HTC One that help the device compete with what Samsung has done with the Galaxy S5. There’s SenseTV, a TV hub that works as a remote serving up social information around programming, sports stats and more; Fitness information will be provided by Fitbit using either the HTC One itself or a Fitbit accessory; And BlinkFeed will feature more content than ever with third-party integration on the way.
As for when you can get the new HTC One, HTC has made the device available today on select carriers. It will be coming to every major carrier in the US so check your carriers website and you may just be able to get the device tomorrow. We’ll keep updating with availability information as it’s made available, but in the meantime, what do you think of HTC’s new 2014 One?
