GSM Arena has delivered again with a sales guide for the All New HTC One, which will be officially unveiled in London and New York on March 25th. The sales guide outlines various sales tactics for demoing the new features and adds a little more depth to our already quite full picture of the most leaked device we've seen for a while. There's also a healthy dose of specs ''confirmation'' for the new HTC flagship.
While GSM Arena have some inconsistencies between what they're reporting and what they've added to their device page, the specs seem to be basically what @evleaks told us way back on January 2nd: 1080p 5-inch display with a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor ticking at 2.3 GHz. @evleaks called the processor a MSM8974 - the Snapdragon 800 - which also clocks at 2.3 GHz, as it does in both the Nexus 5 and LG G2. The Galaxy S5 runs a Snapdragon 801 but it's clocked at 2.5 GHz. AnandTech has just done a great breakdown between the two Snapdragon chipsets. Here's the uncomfirmed specs as they currently stand.
|System||Android 4.4.2 KitKat, HTC Sense 6|
|Display||5 inch, Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 Pixel, 441 ppi)|
|Processor||Quad-core Snapdragon 801, 2.3 GHz|
|Internal Memory||16 GB + microSD (up to 128 GB)|
|Camera||HTC Duo-Camera, UltraPixel (rear); 5 MP (front)|
|Connectivity||LTE, HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, Infrared|
|Dimensions||146.4 x 70.6 x 9.4 mm|
Other new info comes in the way of a microSD card slot, as previous leaks had reported, a 2,600 mAh battery, nano-SIM, barometer and 16 GB internal storage with 10 available to the user. There's also more confirmation of the double tap to wake feature and Motion Launch which will let you launch apps or BlinkFeed from the lock screen with a swipe gesture. The device will reportedly come in at 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35 mm and weigh a pretty hefty 160 grams. If you add in the other specs dropped by @evleaks, then we can also expect 2 GB of RAM. For a 2014 flagship, these specs may seem a little dated and uninspiring but we'll have to wait and see how the All New HTC One plays in practice. Here's the sales pitch for the new features:
What are your thoughts on these specs? Do you think they're enough to make the All New HTC One one of the best devices of the year?
