"All New HTC One" name publicly showcased in London
"The All New HTC One."
The photo was taken at the Selfridges store in Oxford Street, London. Thus, everyone who happens to pass by will (probably) see that an all new HTC One is coming on March 25. For those who don't know, Selfridges is one of the UK's most famous high-end department stores.
The All New HTC One (codenamed M8) should run Android 4.4 KitKat, coming with Sense 6.0 UI. Thanks to a leaked video seen over the week-end, we know that the handset should be about the same size as the One that was launched last year. Expected features include a 1080p display, a twin-sensor rear camera with dual LED flash, an all-metal body, and MicroSD card support.

So basically, HTC is making an uglier phone than last year, with a funky camera and an awful name?

I dont think its uglier,its just less classy
Its cameras seem awkward but if it can take good-looking pics its just fine
awful name? name it as you like,its the same device after all
I can call it the brand new HTC Two,HTC One+,HTC Galaxy or even Apple Orange Cherry,it makes no difference

All true. And of course I'm pretty open to it if it's a great phone. But this phone seems like a step in the wrong direction. The average consumer was obviously not at all considered. No consumer will see two cameras, an illogical name and a design worse than an older model and choose this over a well known brand. HTC needs/needed a killer phone that was as good as could be in every way in order to succeed. This is not that phone.

Are you smoking crack cheeser its about the same in design needed edge and raised bezel fur glass protection. Louder better sounding speakers SD card better camera maybe water resistant maybe same if not same or better soc maybe bigger battery then s4 and aluminum yup sounds like many steps forward to me

Maybe Its not the perfect phone for HTC,but its by no means underwhelming,at least as we can say right now
Its camera system seems pretty good (it better be, costumers wont tolerate another failure),its chipset will be enough to run Sense and the heavy stuff we toss at it and,no doubt,its screen will be as beautiful as the phone itself (Im sure because I never heard about a bad screen on a HTC device)

HTC M8 will be the best phone of 2014 you all trolls
its very beautiful phone
11. Bioload25 (Posts: 207; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
You call us trolls,but you are clearly a fanboy ¬¬'
14. LiyanaBG (Posts: 323; Member since: 07 Nov 2013)
im not a fanboy you i have a note 3 and love it and you the fanboy who only likes one brand when i see something beautiful and something great i admit it unlike you most fanboys. read my past comments you will know i aint no fanboy like yourself
16. cheeseycheeser (Posts: 384; Member since: 24 Mar 2011)
A troll is someone who hates something regardless of reason. I am giving a reason, and I'm not saying I hate it. It would seem, blindly calling someone a troll because they share an opinion different than yours, is trolling.
I'm still open to this phone, but it looks really disappointing so far. The Galaxy S4 at least added relevant features, but the dual camera seems seems to be the main new feature on this one, and it doesn't look good.

Besides the camera upgrade, the lack of an SD card slot was one of the downfalls for a lot of people with the previous iteration.

I wouldn't call them trolls. I'm a Windows Phone fanboy but I'm pretty excited for this phone and hope this gets HTC back in the game. The phone looks good to me if the leaks are accurate.

Wow. 2014 barely started and you suddenly declared m8 as the best phone of the year. And yet you refused to be called fanboy.
It is beautiful phone, but the best? It needs more than a design.
Oh people these days.

Not to mention they're still acting like it's going to be suuuuuuch a big surprise when the phone is announced on the 25th..LOL

One thing I wanna clear is, this is not name of M8, this is actually Slogan. It's not ugly buddy, it's gorgeous. You can say HTC one is gorgeous than M8, not ugly.

god people are you so stupid? it will be called htc one just like a year ago. "the all new" is just an addition to mark its...the new one.
2. bugsbunny00 (Posts: 1024; Member since: 07 Jun 2013)
"the all new HTC one",..what a long name for this one.
4. bugsbunny00 (Posts: 1024; Member since: 07 Jun 2013)

5. Bioload25 (Posts: 207; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
PA,Im getting tired of all these leaks,it seems like they need merely one week to finish what they need to and release the damn thing - after all,we already know how it is going to look and what it is going to feature... ¬¬'
6. downbeat4 (Posts: 70; Member since: 03 Dec 2010)
I got a chance to use this at a convention today. Build wise, the nicest phone I've ever held!! They had a great case with it as well that was kind of like blinds over the screen. You could see who was calling and answer calls through it. The camera has a great depth of field feature, but is still a 4 Ultrapixel...as far as the rep knew. Amazing build though. The Gun Metal color is gorgeous.
10. LiyanaBG (Posts: 323; Member since: 07 Nov 2013)
you touched the old HTC one
the new HTC one doesn't have 4 ultra pixel camera plus in your dream you will touch one . go home
26. downbeat4 (Posts: 70; Member since: 03 Dec 2010)
I did and the HTC rep said that it's still a 4 Ultrapixel. I inquired about any changes to the lens and he said that he hadn't been trained on the lens yet. I don't waste my time posting made up sh!t. I work in the industry and was surprised as sh!t when i saw the device there myself. Once it comes out and you see the case I'm talking about, you'll see what I'm saying.
33. Hyperreal (Posts: 127; Member since: 08 Oct 2013)
so the final version is the same as we saw on the leak? does the bezel look bad or not that bad? any info what the second camera does? is it much bigger than htc one 2013? what about the screen? 5 ich more or less?
36. downbeat4 (Posts: 70; Member since: 03 Dec 2010)
The extra lens was for post processing photos. It allowed for some amazing depth of field editing. The post editing software oftware allowed for some funky background effects after selecting a front nd center object. I asked him if the "twice as nice" promotion that had been teased ment that the lens was now an 8UP...He said "no". I believe the screen was 5" (i left that out of my barrage of questions). I can say that he device feels and looks amazing... The gunmetal version was what I saw and it was smooth solid in the hand. The screen was also very nice. As far as the reports of a revamped, more responsive power button... They are correct. It was very responsive. Oh yeah... The aux connection is at the bottom.

BTW...I got a picture of it...can you post pix to a reply...I dont see the option on my phone

13. newbey123 (Posts: 413; Member since: 19 Mar 2012)
It's about time. Been waiting for them to release this beautiful beast so I can upgrade my phone. Will be an amazing android phone of the year.
17. edisonbono (Posts: 9; Member since: 02 Mar 2014)
I'd forgive the uglier design and uglier name if they bump up the battery life!
18. alouden (Posts: 197; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
They could have called it the One Advanced, OnePlus...just something short and sweet: iPhone 5, Galaxy s5, LG G2, whatever. But the All New One? In general HTC makes great phones. But as Samsung and Apple have shown, marketing is a large part of the battle. Ah well, maybe folks will get past HTC's naming issues. I remember hating the name Rezound, but loving the phone.

OnePlus is the name of a company that is making a phone called the OnePlus One.

And anyway whats wrong with calling it the HTC Two?
24. c.sonnen (Posts: 23; Member since: 06 Mar 2013)
It should be "HTC One Mark II" then let Robert Downey Jr. do the advertisement again.
27. TheBeaconProject (Posts: 7; Member since: 11 Dec 2012)
Holy crap all HTC had to do is keep the same premium body design. Improve the camera, add an SD slot.
Integrate a home button with the HTC logo and keep the capacitive buttons.
Increase the 'boomsound' (perhaps upgrading speakers and drilling more speaker grill holes)
New software features (easy enough)
Offer the phone in original machined aluminum and dark aluminum
Improve on the screen (make it 5') and possibly increasing boom sound even more.
BOOM say hello to phone of 2014 - and you all get to keep your jobs for another year

regardless, this phone sure thing will better than the S5! and that's for sure! :D
30. Odiin (Posts: 243; Member since: 23 Apr 2013)
Obviously its better for u bcz u've already declared that u r buying one.
34. Killua (Posts: 270; Member since: 25 Nov 2013)
Sorry, but you obviously not looking things objectively. Superficial, so to speak. From the rumors so far it's pretty boring phone, the all new.
31. vtem97 (Posts: 5; Member since: 23 Feb 2014)
LOL "The All new" is advertisment slogan. Phone is called just HTC One...
