HTC has just unveiled the brand-new HTC One, a smartphone whose design, software and technical specifications have been fine-tuned since its predecessor. The new One packs Sense 6.0 with new customization options, a dual camera for great pictures and editing functions and the best in technical specifications, we are sure that this new smartphone will give many competitors a run for their money. Also check out our hands-on review and video of the new HTC One.
There were no surprises during the presentation of the new HTC, we pretty much knew it all before the flagship arrived on the scene thanks to a multitude of leaks over the web in the last few weeks and a special sneek peek. There was even multiple full length videos showing off the device.
Packing a Snapdragon 801 processor from Qualcomm, 2 GB of RAM, all-in-one elegant aluminum unibody chassis, the smartphone gives off the impression of being of high quality, while the new UI, Sense 6.0, brings many new gesture options that work on a turned-off screen.
Another interesting feature is the dual-camera, which allows the user to choose the focus in the picture after the fact. To know how well this works, check out our hands-on review that will appear shortly on our site, as well as our hands-on video, of course.
