Sell sheet for The All New HTC One reveals some of phone's specs
0. phoneArena 11 Mar 2014, 18:36 posted on
Earlier on Tuesday, we showed you a brochure for The All New HTC One from Telstra that revealed a price of $840 AUD ($753 USD) for the device off-contract. One plan offered the handset for $80 AUD a month ($72 USD) with a signed 24 month contract. Now, a "sell sheet" for the phone has been revealed which gives out plenty of information abut the specs of the Taiwan manufacturer's new Android flavored flagship model...

10 GB user available storage? Maybe they added bunch of features like S5. Interesting to see what features.

Zoe is pointless imo. They need to get rid of it.
31. pwnarena (Posts: 1122; Member since: 15 Feb 2013)
maybe just provide the option to remove it, not to integrate it with the system.

pointless for you, useful and interesting for some..

"One plan offered the handset for $80 AUD a month ($72 USD) with a signed 24 month contract."
That amounts to 1,920 AUD or 1,728 USD in all!

Yep, it's a standard type of plan in Australia where it includes calls texts and data with the phone itself.

The more I see it in the dark gray model, the more I want it... 2600mAh is scaring me a little though and so is the camera.
11. Felix_Gatto (Posts: 840; Member since: 03 Jul 2013)
2600mah is no problem if it's a Lithium Polymer. Has HTC ever use Li-Po battery on their smartphones?
20. Felix_Gatto (Posts: 840; Member since: 03 Jul 2013)
Oh yes, the original One uses Li-Po battery. So the All New One will very likely to use the same kind of battery.

I agree on both accounts actually. I have a feeling its going to be the same mp count and that battery is an instant no unless they have some surprise.
53. zachattack (Posts: 621; Member since: 31 Jul 2013)
yuh... 2600 makes me rethink wanting this phone. Who knows... will have to wait to see a review a month after it's out. As for me i still want the z2 to miraculously hit verizon. That or wait for the g3. I want a good looking water proof phone and those are the only two i think fit my want list
57. PapaSmurf (Posts: 10226; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Z2 will never land on Verizon. Better off getting this or G3 if the S5 doesn't suit your needs.
(If I remember correctly, you're a anti-Samsung troll so exclude the S5 from there.)

How much ultrapixels at the back? Don't tell me the front facing has more
5. NoFanboy (Posts: 295; Member since: 18 Nov 2013)
Rant: If these are the specs I will not be trading my N3 for this. The phone is much heavier and slightly thicker. Idk why they don't fit a 3000 mAh battery in here when they have the resources to (butterfly S). Also starting it off with 16gb. 2014: the year all smartphones started going backwards.
7. PapaSmurf (Posts: 10226; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Sense 6 used up 6GB of internal storage. That's more than the S5 with 5.3 and people talked so much about Samsung.
16. Felix_Gatto (Posts: 840; Member since: 03 Jul 2013)
You're not PapaSmurf, you're PapaMickey.
18. Felix_Gatto (Posts: 840; Member since: 03 Jul 2013)
It's a joke, don't get mad. Besides you should change your profile picture with the real Papa Smurf photo.
15. jellmoo (Posts: 1117; Member since: 31 Oct 2011)
You're not supposed to though. Manufacturers aren't putting out phones that are meant to be no brainer upgrades to devices that are 6 months old. A product lifecycle like that isn't sustainable.
The new One (or whatever they decide to call it), should be a viable upgrade to their previous model, but not such a no brainer that people feel ripped off for purchasing the previous generation. It remains to be seen if this will be true or not, but their target most certainly won't be current Note 3 owners.

There is actually no way that this phone beats the S5 unless you like the BoomSound or Design
39. terabyteRouser (Posts: 457; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
or user interface. imo all of which are important.
60. CreedFrancis (Posts: 21; Member since: 28 Feb 2014)
Even though i was pretty disappointed with the S5 i kind of agree with you! Z2 tho has an upperhand with it's massive battery inside.
13. Felix_Gatto (Posts: 840; Member since: 03 Jul 2013)
It's only a matter of time, too early to judge now.
34. ahhxd717 (Posts: 332; Member since: 08 Dec 2011)
Idk, we'll just have to wait and see. Im not feeling any urge to upgrade from my One, though the new one looks pretty sweet so far. I feel like many people who have last year's flagships generally won't feel to pressed to upgrade. That's my sentiment
14. newbey123 (Posts: 519; Member since: 19 Mar 2012)
Love it, going to be a beast of a phone. Much better phone than the sammy. Good job HTC.
23. Tizen007 (Posts: 575; Member since: 07 Jan 2014)
How on earth are the specs batter than the Galaxy S5? You should have said "Much better design than the GS5."
26. Felix_Gatto (Posts: 840; Member since: 03 Jul 2013)
He didn't say anything about better specs than Galaxy S5,. His comment is only an opinion.
17. Taters (Posts: 6346; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
A 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35mm footprint but all they can fit in these HUGE dimensions are a 5 inch screen(which is effectively a 4.7 inch screen with the on screen buttons) and a 2600mah battery? Rofl
That is absolutely a pathetic use of space . Lol
How do you clowns even defend this company is beyond me...lol
35. ahhxd717 (Posts: 332; Member since: 08 Dec 2011)
Exactly. I'll sacrifice a little on size to gain some personally important features, such as an attractive design and nice speakers. After the Galaxy Nexus (and consequently upgrading to a One), I can never have a phone with pitiful speakers again.
66. Cicero (Posts: 773; Member since: 22 Jan 2014)
And put it on your shoulder and rock the neighbour. Than everibody will know how cool and gang boy you are. LOL
44. ngo2dd (Posts: 896; Member since: 08 Jul 2011)
This guy again. The S5 has an AMOLED display so there will alway be thinner. OLED screen has no gap between the layer unlike LCD. The dual speaker added to the height, not that hard to understand. The S5 is wider then the HTC one. The dimensions are not that different given the different. Talking about clown most of us don't go on and Bashing other manufacturers. People do enjoy thing you.
62. Taters (Posts: 6346; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
146.36mm isn't just the speakers. That is almost as tall as the Note 3 and Xperia Z2 except it has a much smaller screen. In fact, that height is so terrible that I think it might be a typo. Not even HTC is that crappy....
Yet you are still defending it. Hilarious....lol
67. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4239; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
It's 4mm taller than the GS5. That 4mm of extra height goes towards the speakers, which is well worth it, in my opinion.
71. Taters (Posts: 6346; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
4mm taller than the GS5 with on screen buttons and a smaller screen is flicking retarded. Sorry. It's really bad.
70. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4239; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Also, the New One is closer in height to the GS5 than the Note 3, so using it as a comparison is kind of exaggerating. You say 4mm is a lot, but when there's a 5mm difference between it and the Note 3, you think it's so close it's fair to make a comparison, I don't see your logic.
72. Taters (Posts: 6346; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
The logic is that a phone with effectively a 4.7 screen, because of onscreen buttons, has no business being anywhere close to as tall as the Note 3 with a 5.7 inch screen. Even with boom sound speakers.
You have your logic wrong. You have to look at it this way.
GS5 is 9mm away from the Note 3
HTC One 2014 is 5 mm
That is inexcusable and up defendable given the HTC has a smaller screen and a smaller battery period. And if that useless second camera is the reason, when you can get similar results with one lens, that is even more inexcusable.
73. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4239; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Comparing to GS5, 4mm difference;
"It's so much bigger, HTC sucks."
Comparing to Note 3, 5mm difference;
"It's so close in size, HTC sucks."
I still don't understand how you can make two completely opposite statements on nearly the exact same comparison.
There are a couple reasons why the new One is larger than the GS5;
It has the same bezel size. They need that bottom bezel with the logo on it to make room for the display without blocking the speakers. The logo and buttons on the 2013 One were actually in the touchscreen of the main display, just without an LCD panel on top.
The speakers. If HTC went with speakers on the sides or back of the device, they probably could have made the 2014 One much smaller than the GS5, but they sacrificed height for better quality sound, which is worth it.
The second camera (which isn't useless) doesn't make the device any larger. It does however allow for better focusing, including after the shot is taken, and also keeps the Ultrapixel status with great low light camera performance while still maintaining a high megapixel count because it combines two low resolution photos to make one high resolution photo, so it has large pixels for great low light pictures while having a high pixel count for more detail in well lit photos.
76. Taters (Posts: 6346; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
You are just refusing to admit that the 9mm difference between the GS5 and Note 3 is significant while the 5mm between the HTC One and Note 3 is not.
One is too close to phablet territory and the other is not. I don't think I can make it much simpler than that for you.
78. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4239; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
And you seem to think the 4mm difference between the One and GS5 is significant but the 5mm difference between the One and Note 3 is not, even though it's a greater value. It's closer to a phone than is it a phablet, and that's only in height due to the stereo speakers, which is an amazing feature.
21. milos (Posts: 44; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
I absolutely agree. Its a MONSTER at 146mm x 70.6mm x 9.35mm. Its 9mm taller than HTC one 2013. They could at least fit 5.2" screen in that frame.
Too bad for all the HTC fans.
S5 has smaller, thinner waterproof body, fitting larger battery, and even a bit bigger screen and a bit faster processor.
and HTC was laughing at S5 release.
50. ngo2dd (Posts: 896; Member since: 08 Jul 2011)
It is a whole 4mm taller then the S5. The thinness of the new HTC one is a whole 0.05 mm thinner the last year. People cry about thing without looking at context. The S5 is wider then the HTC one but only that 2mm. That is not a big deal. And people like you don't understand that HTC design there to curve in the back. The edge is 5 or so mm and it curve to be 9.35 at it thinnest point.
63. Taters (Posts: 6346; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
4mm is a lot...especially for how little it offers
22. Dthawk (Posts: 42; Member since: 11 Feb 2014)
the 2600mah is a serious turnoff. Looks like it's the Xperia Z2 for me.
25. HTCOE (Posts: 630; Member since: 20 Nov 2011)
these specs are not true except for the 1080 x 1920, processor, and storage the camera count is way off
32. byte11 (Posts: 16; Member since: 05 Nov 2013)
what about the battery capacity and phone dimensions? are those accurate?
29. Killua (Posts: 270; Member since: 25 Nov 2013)
I guess that clinch it, I'm taking the Z2 when it launch.
30. milos (Posts: 44; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
i thought the hight of 146mm is waay too tall for a 5" display device. Sony Z2 is that tall with 5.2" screen. This doesn't add up !
33. 7Superman9 (Posts: 77; Member since: 17 Sep 2013)
First and foremost, if there is a "sell sheet" where is the link or picture. Second, if this is the size battery and the camera specs don't come out as impressive then I will not be getting this phone.
36. taz89 (Posts: 2014; Member since: 03 May 2011)
Wonder if htc will get the same crap as Samsung did for the storage. Overall looking like a good phone, bit taller than I expected but guess that bezel is quite big, if only going on screen would mean less bezel otherwise I would rather have the full screen and capacitive buttons. Pretty much everything is known now, only thing left is how much mp the camera is, hopefully it's 8mp
37. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3686; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
Lol look at the dimensions leaves sony in dust. This phone's gonna be ridiculously tall.
38. andynaija (Posts: 707; Member since: 08 Sep 2012)
Can someone please tell me why there would be a 5MP camera on the front and not the back? Why would you need that type of resolution for a FRONT-FACING camera?
40. terabyteRouser (Posts: 457; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
why would you need any improvements on a phone?
43. andynaija (Posts: 707; Member since: 08 Sep 2012)
-_- Because it's a newer ph... *sigh* nevermind
