Alleged black HTC One render leaks

0. phoneArena 15 Feb 2013, 01:55 posted on

Today we are getting an actual picture that is claimed to be of the black version of the retail device, as the prototype that was bandied about before was in a soft-touch plastic shell. This here looks like a different pint of beer, with very good screen-to-phone size ratio, and what might be indeed two speaker grills above and below the display...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Looks like Blackberry Z10 with front speaker grills... Only a little bit more curved...
As ugly as the aforementioned Blackberry..,

That's my initial thought!
It somewhat spells the Z10, although have stereo speakers would be an added plus...

Not to mention, it doesn't show recent apps button... Uh oh .... I smell webOS multitasking features... Just like bb10 as well...

Yup. looks quite similar. And i feel ip5 was itself inspired by Z10's early renders a year back.

Actually, i third the motion of the ip5 image, with a touch of Windows Live Tiles, running on the Mighty Sense UI... That Looks better then the Z10.

Htc need to be very careful with the new sense ui,its looks very similar to windows live tiles.
The unpopularity of live tiles is one of the principle reasons wp sales are so slow

Did anyone notice that your username is exynos5?

Don't make me laugh, Sense 5 is nothing like Touchwiz, which until Nature UX looked like an iOS copycat.

UGHHH so close to perfection... This build has so much symetrical potential and then they go and blow it all by not having on-screen keys or soft keys + HTC logo on the top. Now it's just unsymetrical :( WHY? WHY? Y? Y? Y?

I hope this isn't he final build, though.

ohhhh man...this is probably it. it's nice in some ways, ugly in others but one thing is for certain this looks way too much like the iPhone 5. i might would even still get this. the battery size is going to be the biggest factor on that decision.

Yeah... if you slim the phone a bit, then it'll look almost identical to the iPhone 5

I hope HTC has winner with the One. This could be it for them. I personally like the look (if done in anodized metal like the 1x was). Plastic would be a downer for me.

The One X isn't made of anodized metal. It's a plastic polycarbonate. The One S is the one with the anodized aluminum body. Read reviews for both if you don't believe me.

It's a good-looking handset BUT; Are they kidding us? This is a complete rip off of the design of the Z10, with the diamond cut edges of the iPhone 5 and the Windows Phone 8 interface. This is how it is when sales go down, you panic and you copy the competitors to survive. I may dislike Apple for many things, but if they complained about this design they would have a point. When HTC made a deal with Apple about patents, did they include design too??? Never an HTC for me. Only Sony shows how to make a phone look expensive and different from iPhone. Imagine people's reaction if you have an HTC One; "Oh, you have an iPhone! -Er, no, sorry, it's only it's Taiwanese copy..." Embarrassing.

I don't like the placement of the HTC logo.

but i like it. i think it acts as home button.

How can it be a home button when there's already one there?

you're right. i didn't see it but that could be a good idea if they used it as home button.

It looks like it might be used as the multi tasking button. That's odd.

I think it's odd, too. Since the advent of ICS, no company has moved the home button from the center. Also, it seems mighty pompous of HTC to use their logo as the multitasking button. This all makes me think that this is not what the phone will look like.

Gotta love the HTC employees (or kids) that down-vote things for no reason at all.

"Very good screen to body ratio" you can't be serious pa top andare average at best and the lower bezel is huge..

Thank God, i wasn't the only one that notice that.
Worst bezel i seen on a flagship phone.
Should have removed the HTC logo and buttons if they were going to add a front facing speaker.

FYI I love the idea of a front facing speaker.

And this is the new ... HTC ONE IPHONE 5 REPLICA. HTC are you serious? You just copied Apple Iphone 5. Blackberry also copied Apple with their Z10. Lame and ridiculous. These replicas lack innovation and design. I certainly wont buy a phone that looks like Iphone 5.

i don't understand those apple fanboys who always repeat one thing. "Sammy copied apple, HTC and BB copied apple."
don't you have any other ideas to talk about?
