Hardware and software details revealed about the all new HTC One
I’ve generally been staying away from all of the HTC M8 leaks, since there have been so many and I value my sanity. However, it now seems we can start talking about some official specs of the “All New” HTC One, set to be unveiled later this month.
According to a leaked sales sheet, the all new HTC One will have a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, instead of the previously-rumored Snapdragon 800 chip. It will come with a 5-inch 1080 display, 16GB of internal storage (10GB accessible to users), a 5MP front-facing camera, and a “Duo Camera” on the back that will offer improved low light performance, refocusing after the image is shot, background softening, and 3D effects. This is better than competitors’ cameras, because the dual cameras allow the new HTC One to take two pictures simultaneously, better measuring depth perception. Last year’s Ultrapixel technology is also back, but there’s no word on megapixels yet. Basically, this seems like the same concept of the HTC EVO 3D, but with an actually decent camera.
Apparently the all new HTC One will also have a microSD card slot for expandable storage, a nanoSIM slot (at least for the GSM versions), and a 2,600 mAh battery. The aluminum body will measure 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35mm and weigh 160 grams.
There aren’t many details about HTC Sense 6 yet, but apparently users will be able to wake the phone with a simple swipe gesture that can either take them to their favorite apps or to BlinkFeed. It will also include double-tap to wake functionality.[Android and Me: 1, 2]
