HTC finally unveiled its latest flagship phone, the HTC One. The phone comes with a 4.7-inch full-HD display with 468 pixels per inch packed in an aluminium unibody. It is powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor alongside 2GB of RAM. HTC One will come in Grey, Black and Red colours with 32GB and 64GB storage options, but without expandable storage. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/ac/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, Infrared (see below) and Micro-USB.
The HTC One runs a completely overhauled Sense UI atop Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
HTC has done something unique with the camera, swapping the megapixel race for what it calls the UltraPixel camera. HTC says the One takes photos at 4-megapixels resolution, but claims "the quality of each pixel is substantially higher than the industry average".
Both front and rear cameras of the phone come with full-HD video recording capabilities as well as Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS). The phone packs a 2,300mAh battery.
The phone will compete with flagships from other brands, including with Sony's Xperia Z, which is expected to make its debut in March, the Nokia Lumia 920, which was launched in India last month, the Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy SIII and finally, the BlackBerry Z10.
