HTC One Revealed in Press Photo for The First Time

HTC-One- Phones

We may have seen the face of the HTC One for the first time.

According to a leak published on Twitter by @evleaks, the HTC One will sport an unusual button arrangement that has the HTC logo in the usual place of the home key, with the home key relegated to the right hand side and the multi-tasking button nowhere to be seen. The phone also looks quite angular, in line with previous links and the HTC Droid DNA, with the top and bottom capped with a metallic / chrome material. It’s an attractive looking phone all told, particularly when paired with its thin looking build, minimal bezels and micro-drilled speaker and microphone grilles, but one that is quite different from what we’ve seen before from the One series, particularly in the case of the much softer HTC One X.

The image is the latest in a series of leaks for the HTC One, which was previously called its codename, the HTC M7. The phone which was held aloft by CEO Peter Chou at a year’s end company event, will be the flagship device for HTC in 2013 when it is announced on February 19th, in just over a week. The phone is expected to ship in early March and cost a similar price to the HTC One X on launch.

The One looks like it will be quite a high-end phone upon launch, with a 4.7-inch display at 1080p resolution being its defining feature. The CPU is strong too – a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro running at 1.7 GHz, and this backed with 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage and up to 64 GB of micro SD external storage. There’s support for 4G LTE and NFC as expected, too. All of this hardware will be powered by a 2300 mAh battery, which may be a bit too small given the horsepower present in the machine.

The HTC One is due to include some interesting camera developments. The sensor is apparently an ‘ultrapixel’ sensor that will include three stacked layers of 4.3 megapixel sensors, each capturing a different colour. This approach allows for a much better looking final result than you’d see from a single layer camera, even a well-respected one like Nokia’s Pure View technology.

I’m looking forward to seeing what HTC will announce soon. If these leaks are at all accurate, we could be seeing one of the best phones of the year.
