Now that we got that out of the way, let's talk about the phone itself. Made of an aluminum unibody casing, the HTC One is a solid piece of kit and with an industry leading pixel density of 468ppi, the screen is absolutely magnificent. The model has been spotted on some Indian e-commerce sites priced at 42,900 INR ($764 USD) with shipping set for today.
While the Samsung Galaxy S4 has been outselling the HTC One by a 2 to 1 margin, nowhere in the rules does it state that HTC has to outsell Samsung to stay alive. Considering what is expected from Sammy's flagship Android device, HTC would be very happy if the HTC One sells 50% of that amount. And a larger phablet sized version of the HTC One, codenamed T6, could be challenging the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 later this year.
