HTC_One_Announcement

All the speculation and rumors can now stop as HTC officially unveiled the new One smartphone in both New York City and London this morning. I can say that it’s one of the best phones ever made with it’s metal construction. It features a 4.7-inch 1080p LCD 3 display at 468ppi, a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of storage, 4 UltraPixel camera, and so much more. The biggest part of the announcement was concentrated on the new Sense 5 (on top of Android 4.1), which includes BlinkFeed, Sense Voice, Sense TV, BoomSound, UltraPixels, and Zoe. Just what do these things do? Check out our full hands on video from the New York show highlighting the hardware and the cool new features of Sense 5. HTC is calling this the greatest phone ever made. What do you guys think? Hit the break to check it out.

Could HTC unveil a tablet alongside the One?

htc_teaser_Tablet_or_Accessory

The above image is yet another teaser from HTC about tomorrow’s event. Now we fully expect to see the HTC One (M7) or whatever they call it, but this image has something interesting. It shows a bunch of devices under black clothes, but the one to the bottom left looks a little bigger. Speculation is running rampant that it could be a tablet, but it could also be some sort of accessory. We did hear rumblings last July of an HTC Vertex device that was suspected to be a tablet, and then in August, images leaked of a 10-inch tablet. Unless it’s an optical illusion, whatever is under that cloth doesn’t appear to be that big.

I guess I will be surprised if it is a tablet knowing full well that we would probably have more information about it, and not to mention that back in October HTC basically said they weren’t going to concentrate on tablets, at least for the U.S. market. We are only a little over 12 hours away from finding out so keep it locked right here for all the details as we get them.

HTC provides more clues about the HTC One Camera with cryptic teaser

HTC_One_Camera_Teaser

HTC is giving the public more to speculate over with the release of their latest cryptic picture on their Twitter page. The picture is of a camera lens that seems ordinary to the naked eye. Upon close inspection, however, the numbers “2, 19, 13″ are revealed along the lens’ outside rim. These numbers ordinarily would give indications of the camera’s lens quality but these numbers happen to line up with the date of the dual press events in  New York City and London.

HTC One (aka M7) to debut on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile on March 22?

htc_one_leaked_press_render

With next Tuesday being the big day for the unveiling of the HTC One, we do expect that it will become available sometime in March. We have heard that it could debut as early as March 8 in Europe, but what about the U.S.? Right now the word is that it will land on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile on March 22. We are hearing that there will be a 32GB model and a 64GB model and contract pricing will be $199 and $299 respectively.

What about Verizon you ask? Well back in January, we got wind that it was heading to Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, and T-Mobile was yet to be confirmed. The absence of Verizon is a little disappointing, but I guess it’s not a shocker since they just released the DROID DNA. I think it’s possible that the HTC One might still end up on Verizon, but maybe at a later date as another follow up to the DROID Incredible line. I guess we will have to wait and see.

HTC One gets shown off in blurry teaser video

HTC_One_Teaser_Video_Screenshot

In less than one week the HTC One will officially be unveiled. We think we have a pretty good idea of what it will look like based on the leaked image a couple of days ago, but if you want a little more, and I mean a “little,” check out a video created by YouTube member gaurav2328. He took all the quick clips that HTC featured on their website and made a 20 second video. There are a lot of blur effects so it’s not so easy to see anything relevant. You do get a decent shot of the front silver trim along with the white back that coincides with the leak we saw the other day. Hit the break to check it out, and if you see something interesting, please point it out in the comments below.

HTC One (aka M7) press render leaks ahead of next week’s announcement

by Robert Nazarian on
tagged , ,

htc_one_leaked_press_render

@evleaks is at it again. They have a pretty good track record and I am assuming that will continue with their latest leak, a press render of the HTC One. We already reported last week that it will be the official name of the M7, but forget names, what does it look like? There’s a good chance that it will look just like the above image.

Now we had seen a leaked image of the said device last month, and if you remember, the buttons were switched up. Instead of having from left to right, back/home/multitasking, the previous image had from left to right, back/multitasking/home. I still can’t understand why HTC would do that, but the same theme continues with this image, but the htc logo is in place of the multitasking button, which is even more bizarre.  Other than that, there isn’t much more to say other than this image appears to be the second color option and the newer clock widget is prominent as opposed to their classic flip clock.

I’m pretty sure we will see another leak or two before next Tuesday’s big announcement, so stay tuned!!

HTC One (aka M7) test photo shows up on Flickr

HTC_One_Test_Photo_01

 

HTC has been the focus of a ton of rumors lately specifically related to their next rumored flagship phone, the HTC M7. It has been recently suggested that the name M7 will not be the official name given at the launch of the device but rather is a codename as is common with manufacturers and their products. The official name has been rumored to be the HTC One following in line with the slew of devices already available including the HTC’s current flagship phone the HTC One X.

A new image has shown up on Flickr with details suggesting that it has been taken with the anticipated smartphone, and as you can see in the EXIF data, it’s called the HTC One, which supports yesterday’s rumor. Also, the image was uploaded at a maximum resolution of 1158 x 2048 which could mean several things. It could be that the image was cropped, re-sized or even evidence of the rumored “ultrapixel” technology set to debut along with the device as one of its key features. With the One, M7 or whatever it is to be called, HTC has sparked quite a buzz for themselves and this image might just showcase one more key feature to look forward to on February 19th.

HTC M7 to be called the HTC One

by Robert Nazarian on
tagged , ,

htc_one_logo

Remember that video of HTC’s year end party where the crowd was yelling M7? Something a lot of people didn’t pick up was that they also yelled HTC One. It appears that just might be the official name of the M7. We always assumed M7 was just a codename, but then we were wondering a little bit when “M7″ showed up in inventory systems for Carphone Warehouse and Vodafone. We also knew that HTC wants to simplify their naming scheme to create a solid brand like Samsung’s Galaxy and Note series.

This latest rumor is courtesy of @evleaks, which has a pretty good track record at this point. Of course we won’t know for sure until February 19, but it really does seem like the best name at this point. They could go with HTC Two or HTC One X2, but HTC One is just more classy. What do you guys think?
