HTC has unveiled its flagship Android smartphone HTC-one which comes with 4.7-inch full HD 1080p display with 468 ppi powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core 1.7GHz CPU and 2GB RAM with Android jelly bean 4.1.2 running it with a promise of Android 4.2.2 update coming soon.
The heavily customized version of Android from HTC is accompanied by HTC specific features like HTC Sense 5, Boomsound and BlinkFeed. The model at the moment comes in two variants of 32 GB and 64 GB.
In terms of the looks and outer design of the the flagship phone, it looks like a combination of iPhone 5 and the newly released Blackberry 10.
In terms of Camera, it has both front and rear camera. The main or back camera is the HTC UltraPixel Camera whereas the Front Camera is 2.1 MP. As you may have noticed, HTC isnt specifying the Megapixel of the camera here, but talks something different i.e the HTC UltraPixel Camera. Just follow the link to know more about it. I am still trying to figure it out and we may write another post for it, if required.
The phone is powered by 2300 mAh Li-polymer battery which is a bit more than Google Nexus 4 battery of 2100 mAh and hopefully will provide a better battery life.
We hope to get our hands on this smartphone in future and hopefully will review it in more detail. Checkout the introductory video.
