LIVE: HTC's big return with the HTC One

LIVE: HTC's big return with the HTC One
Today is the day for HTC. After a long and painful transitional period, HTC is now ready to begin anew in its life as a smartphone company. Today is the day when HTC will (most probably) announce the new HTC One - its new flagship Android smartphone.

We've already heard a lot about this new smartphone, we've seen many leaks, and we have an almost complete idea about what it's going to be. However, we think it'll be best if we leave it to the HTC team to do the official introduction. After all, we wouldn't want to steal their moment.

Starting at 10AM Eastern | 9AM Central | 8AM Mountain | 7AM Pacific and 3PM GMT, Peter Chou and company will take the stage to walk us through their latest and greatest invention. Be sure to stay with us, as we'll be bringing you all the details as they come out with the liveblog that can see below. Enjoy reading it, and don't forget to share your thoughts about the new device with us!

I agree One X looks better

That would be a MAJOR turnoff for me. If I wanted a WP, I would buy a WP. Especially considering that HTC won't give any support to xda to help get rid of that crap.

Looks like the launcher is WP8 style. Terrible, just terrible.

Low light photos comparable to Lumia 920, day time to GSII and iPhone 5. Plus everything @diego! said especially the battery life and OS points.

By GSII I meant GSIII. I wish the design was closer to the One X, it looks a bit uninspired now. Lots of storage and big battery with the thought that there will no replaceable battery or expanded storage.

It looks like an iphone now. I don't understand why they would go this direction.

Great screen (not like Z), may be Snapdragon 800 (*wink), great battery optimization, and above all, GREAT CAMERA!!!

The 4.3mp camera is in a set of 3. So more like 12.9mp.

Why? Aluminum makes the phone more premium feel

After the long wait, this is all HTC has to offer? Sense 5 = WP-like tiles? seriously... If I wanted live tiles, I'll buy a Nokia.. HTC, thanks but no thanks..

Yeah, this has got to be the dumbest attempt by HTC ever. It looks like a fat iPhone running a WinPhone OS. Well, thanks HTC for making my decision to not continue supporting you even easier. Oh, and how sad is it that it releases with 4.1.2 instead of 4.2.1. I can understand not having 4.2.2, considering it just dropped, but it shouldn't have a .1 increment less at launch than the current OS. Great job HTC. Bravo.

rumored 2300 battery life on a full hd smartphone, i dont think so. but the snapdraggon 600 is more power efficient than the S4 PRO, so we will see what happens

That 2300 mah battery is going to be too small even with the more efficient processor. At this point if the device has the same dimensions as the Maxx HD and an SD card that will mean that HTC has failed to listen to the consumers once again. Ill have to wait and see what the S4 and X phone have to offer.

Nothing wrong with the battery life on my DNA and it has a larger screen and smaller battery, so I disagree with you there.
