Allegedly official HTC One renders leak hours before announcement

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.

As a reminder, the phone will likely have the best pixel density in its class, quad-core Snapdragon, and come with some novel for Android phones camera technology that bins pixels together as Ultrapixels to mimic what Nokia uses for the 808 PureView. Moreover the chassis will allegedly be metal, and come in black and white/silver coloring, with front-facing stereo speakers.

Not only that, but we are also expecting a new and streamlined Sense 5.0 interface, along with anything else HTC decides to throw at us. The One is supposed to cost the usual $199.99 at T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint for the 16 GB version, while the 32-gigger will set you back $299.99. 

Stay tuned for our coverage of the One festivitites, but how do you like what you are seeing so far?

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.

Off topic, TOO COOL is grammatically wrong. :)

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?

I do know that. That's why I'm using android and nothing else. Loving the Cyanogenmod 10.1! ;)

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...

It looks nice but 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.
