HTC One unveiled – 4.7 inches 1080p screen, Ultrapixel camera, fast processor
Amidst much speculation, HTC One was finally announced by the smartphone manufacturer. There were a lot of rumours going on about this phone and it seems that most of them were true. This is the first smartphone from HTC to have ‘ultrapixel camera’. This phone also has huge 4.7 inches screen having full HD 1080p screen with 468PPI pixel density.
HTC One has 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor inside and it is the same which LG used on Optimus G. However, the biggest attraction on this handset is the camera which according to HTC is a big step forward. Getting off from megapixels race, HTC One has put in four megapixels BSI sensor with f/2.0 lens inside. HTC says that it lets in 300 per cent more of light for giving better quality pictures. The performance in low light conditions too is improved. Whether the claims of better camera quality are true or not are yet to be seen.
HTC One comes with newer Sense UI which is called BlinkFeed by HTC. The smartphone giant has signed up with more than 1,400 news agencies for giving customized live information according to the needs of the users. This is the first smartphone to have stereo speakers at the front with BoomSound.
This phone will be launched in market in March. In India, HTC has signed up with RComm but we are expecting this phone to be offered unlocked too.
