HTC One Hands-On Video + More Details

Steven Blum


The HTC One was announced just moments ago. The newest flagship from HTC features an aluminum clad body, a 4.7" 1080p LCD display with a pixel density of 468ppi, making it the most pixel-rich display currently on the market (and beating the recently-released Sony Xperia Z in the process) and a Snapdragon 600 SoC processor, capable of speeds up to 1.7GHz.

Aside from the impressive internal specs, the HTC One also brings a new UI. The homescreen is now called BlinkFeed – a Flipboard-esque aggregator of status updates, news, tweets and information from apps like your calendar.

The other big news about this phone is its camera. The custom-developed imaging sensor has "enlarged pixels" that can absorb up to three times more light than those inside conventional 8MP cameras. The only drawback is that they limit the resolution of photos you take to 4MP. HTC is also making available optical image stabilization and HDR Mode.

Other extras include "the best audio experience of any mobile phone" via HTC's large two front-facing stereo speakers and Beats Audio, as well as dual-microphone HDR recording. 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage round out the offerings.

But don't take our word for it; check out this hands-on video by the guys over at Tech Gear. The video goes over many of the major features of the new phone. It's in German but should still give you a "Sense" (get it?) of what the phone feels like in your hand.
