HTC One preview pops up, revealing the handset in its full glory

HTC One preview pops up, revealing the handset in its full glory
If the alleged official promo photography of the HTC One back and front from today wasn't enough for you to build an impression of the handset ahead of the official announcement, now a full video preview is making the rounds, but was subsequently pulled by the authors, yet someone managed to snap a few screenshots beforehand.

The narration was not in English, but from the previewer we managed to grasp that we get a 4.7" Full HD screen, just as rumored, along with a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, and a 2,300 mAh battery inside. The new Sense 5.0 interface in its full glory looked modern and minimalistic, as well as the handset design itself, at 9.3mm thin.

The sound from the front speakers is claimed to be 93 dB, which is pretty loud by any standard, and the Snapadragon 600 supposedly makes about 12,000 points on Quadrant, which is great as well. Android 4.1.2 is running the show, with an update to 4.2 in the works. The biggest mystery remains the camera, which utilizes some combination of pixels that result in lower resolution than what the camera is capable of in normal mode, but with supposedly higher quality.

In any case, all will be revealed very soon, and we are reporting live from HTC's event in NYC, so make sure you stay tuned for the grand One unveiling.

For my opinion, front looks like iPhone and blackberry 10. Back looks like Xperia S.

no, not at all...It can mean that htc lacks of innovation and they're ripping off.

Yes, the design is not very clean and too heterogeneous IMHO, and it resembles the phones you mentioned. When I saw the back I thought: looks like a Sony...

HTC One m7 video

Bad or good move from HTC ?

Nice. But why the Snapdraggon 600? is it better than the 800? anyways, i will go with the Xperia Z cuz of the larger screen, waterproof, and bigger battery, but the HTC looks like an S4, Optimus G PRO, Xperia Z competitor. Great job HTC, hope u make profit this year

I think, 800 was not yet released. maybe q2 or q3 of this year.

Snapdragon 600 is a slight upgrade for the current snapdragon s4 pro.

It's sleek and a very nice design but not for my taste. It looks extremely well built but it doesn't wow me at all. I'm holding off for Samsung Galaxy S IV and Google/Motorola X Phone.

Yeah this looks good i would say come back good. But not Galaxy S4 good that's for sure. Samsung is about to turn the market upside down with MAJOR STORAGE OPTIONS. 32gb/64gb internal with sdxc sd card 128gb this will be industry leading. Matter of fact the Motorola X phone will have the 128gb sdxc card option on it's device in June. When will Htc learn that people want more storage options. Stop skimping on what customers need.

Oh don't worry it will be a game changer. People who own android devices mainly are Samsung customers and sdcard rule period.

64GB is more than enough for me personally. Out of the 32GB, we could only use 26GB, that's not enough for me. I need the full 32GB, but with 64GB that fixes my problems. The only I hope on this phone is that it's not going to charge an extra $100 for the 64GB.

Whoa! One problem I have had with a lot of smartphones is weak speakerphones and earpieces: a real issue when you are near heavy machinery or in a bar. Seems like this little gem could be a definite buy.

Hopefully that is the international version because that is one seriously ugly phone, the features are nice on paper but I like the old M7 better this one just looks foreign

this is the main problem with htc....they unveil something but everyone's waiting for the competition such as S IV, new ifail or lg. A dismal failure of htc dna, its avaibility and shortage of card slot, shows that htc is still behind the competition.

If it comes w/32 and 64 storage options, the sd argument is moot.

Are you that dumb? That is bigger then the DNA. The DNA has a longer on screen time then the S3. This phone has the same screen but smaller then the DNA. The snapdragon 600 has better battery life then the Pro. So she should have good battery life

wow. better looking than the renders. i must admit, it looks good. likely to draw potential customers of the xperia z who remain irked by the washed out display.

i'm just worried it's going to be quite expensive. i think that'd be more expensive that xz.

the XPERIA Z only looks washed out on cameras. i mean for god sakes, i have an xperia arc and don't see any flaws in the screen, and i'm sure the xperia z HAS WAY BETTER DISPLAY. please people, stop complaining about the display, you should complain about the highly saturated displays some companies use in their phones.
