Allegedly official HTC One renders leak hours before announcement

0. phoneArena 19 Feb 2013, 03:06 posted on

We've seen the fronts of both the black and white HTC One before, but the back remained somewhat of a mystery, and now we have a leak of the reportedly official renders mere hours before HTC announces the flagship at the NYC event today...

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

Those are just widgets on the home screen. You can change them. If you don't even like HTC's launcher you can change it too. You can also change the gallery app.

this phone looks far better than any Sammy and LG Phones. May be you should compare this with Sony Z.

Nothing worse than when someone tries to correct your grammar, but they have no idea what they're talking about. Are you gonna tell me that "they're" is wrong, too?

The Droid X had a very similar design to the Z10. The Driod X also rectangle with rounded corners. Also the HTC One X+ had a speaker grill at the top, but the design is different. And I don't think they could of copied the Z10 since it was released a month ago.
I think the back is similar to the iPhone 5's aluminum and glass back but the front is completely different.
Personally I really like this design, I think its so much better than HTC's other designs. Just to make it smaller they could of put the buttons in the middle of the bottom speaker grill. Also the side bezels could be smaller.

The front looks like the Z10 while the back looks like iPhone5.
I like the design though. As long as it's metal - to differentiate from the two mentioned.
Can't wait to see the novelty it'll bring. Especially those Ultrapixel claim.

When did WP have all Live Tiles be pictures and videos? And technically....thats not the entire UI....thats just widgets. One pic is the Gallery, you can tell by the icons at the bottom of the screen...

And on WP...the UI is more than just Live Tiles...

to be honest, isn't that bezel too thick?

Beautiful but too much of a Z10 and iPhone copy. And now that we can see the rear, I recognise also the little connecting line starting from the lens just like the Xperia P. Good looking but highly unoriginal handset.

I guess this is the one, judging from what peter chou was holding at that party but I wonder what the htc button will do since there's already a home button

I suppose it's the recent apps button.

Looking good! The only complaint is the average phone-screen ratio; with all the HW components that's the smallest the phone can physically be, but at that size the screen could've gone a bit bigger IMO, quite a bezel on the sides and top/bottom.

BTW, does the HTC logo serve as a button?

63. jroc74 (Posts: 5192; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)


And what does the Z10 look like....? A mash up of the Droid X and an iPhone.

For it to have 2 front speakers...its gonna have to be designed like that for the most part. It is what it is.

That homescreen has widgets on it. And its probably one of 5-7 home screens. There is no current Android phone that has a permanent home screen setup. It can either be left as is out the box, or changed.

To all of you complaining about the size of the bezel... It's there so you can hold the phone properly in your hand and it's there to protect the screen in you drop it (like it's hot).

I would prefer for them to make a 5 inch screen with software buttons (and no logo on the front) Seems only Apple is "brave" enough to do that...

In one of the peaks behind the count down in official HTC site, there's something interesting that might justify the dual front facing stereo speakers. The back of the device shows what seems to be a kickstand. It would be incredible if it's actually there.
