Although the poor sales worldwide, and declining market shares led HTC to shift some of its focus towards Redmond giant’s WP8, but it still keeping its android hopes alive by developing some masterpieces, in the likes of HTC BUTTERFLY J, HTC DNA and now the latest one is HTC ONE.
Don’t go with its name, as it looks simple but it has all the qualities to be a true flagship. On feb 19, HTC president peter chow held the press conference for its launch,the device was on the internet few months ago, With a code name”M7″(which, in my opinion, was a pretty catchy name also).
Following are the specification of this new beast by Taiwanese manufacturing firm.
CPU AND PROCESSING POWER:
HTC ONE packs the recently launched snapdragon 600 by QUALCOMM,it has four cores of krait 300, it is clocked at 1.7 GHZ.as we are talking about cpu, let’s talk about GPU (Graphical Processing Unit).
In this modern era of Smartphones, users are now regarding the importance
of GPU,because you need a good GPU to play HD games like, real football 2013,modern combat and call of duty etc.
So we don’t worry because HTC has put an Adreno 320 GPU in it. As the
RAM is concerned, it has a 2GB RAM, which is now a necessity for today’s flagship.
Like all “new falgships of 2013”, HTC ONE has an HD 1080p screen. It has a 4.7 inch LCD which has super LCD3 technology. And hence offering a blazing density of 469 ppi (pixel per inch). It is scarcely smaller than HTC butterfly. It is also protected with corning Gorilla glass 2.
HTC ONE comes with the android jelly bean 4.1.2 out of the box, although the latest update is 4.2.2, but still it can be updated to the latest one, by OTA (over the air) update. It has the latest custom UI layer of HTC ,”htc sense v5″.
HTC has all the capability of a latest smartphone, that’s why it has both 3G and 4G LTE. WITH 4G LTE, it has a top download linking speed of 100mbps, and up lnking speed is at 50mbps, But you can still get a good speed by 3G as well.
Other options of connectivity are quite clear. It has wi-fi 802.11 a/ac/b/g/n, and it is DLNA certified. It can also act like a wi-fi hotspot. From the bluetooth point of view, it have bluetooth 4.0 technology with A2DP support.
It has NFC(near field communication),which is quite a new technology, you send or receive files by a single tap, or you can pay your bills by NFC(through google WALLET) ,but as of now this service is available in a few countries only.
We are surprised by the fact that,it also has an infra-red port,which is not Popular among new phones. And now, last but not the least, it supports the micro USB v2.0(MHL).
It has the primary camera at 4 MP (which is not so great by modern standards, when compared to Xperia T,etc), which is autofocus. Camera also has LED flash.It features the camera sensors of size one-by-third inches.
It is capable of recording HD videos and images at the same time secondary camera features 2.1 MP,and also capable of shooting at 1080p, and HDR. The other features are stereo sound recognition, video stabilization, Geo-tagging, face and smile detection and OIS.
