Tech: HTC One


The new HTC features a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 proc, 32 to 64GB of onboard storage, 2GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, LTE and a 2300mAh battery, the screen is a whopping 4.7 inches with a 468ppi 1080p display. While the phone only boasts a 4 megapixel camera, folks at HTC point to them as “UltraPixels” with each allowing 300 percent more light – while a dedicated ImageChip 2 helps boost the prowess of the f2.0 lens – which claims to simulate a normal 28mm lens. Additionally, the Smart Flash feature automatically picks from five different flash settings depending on the distance from the subject. In a nod to our demand to control television programming as we see fit, the SENSE TV feature allows users to select TV channels, access program guides, adjust audio and receive alerts as to when programs are on. On the audio end, BoomSound is a new enhancer that makes the speakers louder and clearer. Look for the One to be out in late March on all major carriers except Verizon.
