HTC suggests that its All New One has a place in the history of mobile music

HTC today tweeted the image embedded above. As you can see, this presents "A History of Mobile Music" in HTC’s vision: from the Transistor Radio of 1954 to Personal Compact Disc Players (1984), generic smartphones (2007), and, finally, to the 2014 HTC One.

What should make the All New One a great mobile music player is the BoomSound technology used for its speakers. As you may have heard, HTC already confirmed that the upcoming smartphone would have BoomSound speakers. These will be similar to those found inside the 2013 One, but improved at the same time. 

The All New HTC One (known as the HTC M8 since last year) will be officially announced on March 25. It will probably be released shortly after that, and we’re hearing that it may reach 110 countries. In the US, all major carriers are expected to launch the handset.

Meanwhile you could let us know what you think: is BoomSound enough to make history when it comes to mobile music?

HTC spends too much time on something that not even an average human being would care for. Seriously, how many people use their phone speakers to play music everyday? Only 2 out of 10 maybe. The rest would still prefer plugging in to a real speaker or headphones.

A mobile speaker will never be better than your home theater, a good home speaker needs to be big for a reason. But that doesnt mean boomsound isnt good, in fact ONE had one of the best speakers on a phone. I can only imagine how good the new ONE will be.

off course I know it for sure.. and i own an htc one actually.. but no matter how much the all new one speaker will improves there's no way it will become a history..

It should also go down in history as the most leaked device.

Probably the person who bought the All New HTC One in eBay should write a Review of how the mobile is.. The Most leaked mobile for Q1 2014. We will start seeing the iPhone and the N6 going head to head during Q2-Q3 2014 soon..

It might have been HTC to find out where the leak is (IMEI #), and fire those responsible.

I really have to agree with you, I had about 4-5 HTC's in the last 10 years and I cant remember one of them that had better or on par with the competition camera.

I would agree with you on most of their phones. They have crappy cameras. But there are exceptions as well. HTC Desire HD is one very impressive camera phone. Their sharpness algorithm was crappy. But they gave the option to change the sharpness value. Once you change that, the pictures were very impressive. I can bet that it can compete with today's flagships(Of course, not the Pureview cameras). I heard One S is also a very good camera phone. But I don't know this first hand.

and they do good job but make a mistake in low 4 pix but in speakers did great and also won best phone 2013 (if camera work good one beat any other phone ) this year i hope fix camera then i don,t see any other phone even near htc one series

The One sure features one of the best phone speaker out there but I still think they are overrating it. And as an audiophile, I'd rather have a Wolfson DAC in my phone than a loud stereo speaker.

but seriously, who even actually uses the "boomsound" for the purpouse intended? there are just sooooooo many small blue tooth options that sound soooooooo much better, why would anyone buy a phone for gay ass "Boomsound?"
