Prototype of HTC One revealed

Prototype of HTC One revealed
A prototype of the HTC One reveals a much different design than the one eventually used by the Taiwan based manufacturer. This version of the flagship Android model for HTC features plenty of soft touch on the back giving it a look reminiscent of the HTC DROID DNA. The dual speakers though, were already on the front of the device, but the casing itself is plastic as opposed to the one-piece aluminum eventually used.

The HTC One's design was actually leaked by evleaks exactly one year ago today. The image seemed so different that immediately the leak was denounced as being a fake by those supposedly close to the project. Instead, these insiders claimed that another series of leaked photos represented the look of the HTC One (then still called the M7). Now that the picture of the prototype has been released, we can see that both sides were right. The plastic cased, soft touch HTC One prototype was the last version of the HTC One that some insiders had seen, while others knew that HTC had decided to go with the unique looking model made of a single slab of aluminum.

If you ask us, HTC made the right decision with the design it picked for the HTC One. It should be very interesting to see what changes, if any, HTC is making to the HTC One's successor, believed to be the HTC One+.

What do you mean? This is a prototype of the One, not a leaked picture of the One 2.

It's not fake, I actually played with it. (Loved the feel in the hand!) It's an internal device.
