Qualcomm teases the All New HTC One, doesn't mention what Snapdragon processor it's using


HTC teased its next-generation One smartphone many times until now. Even AT&T did it earlier today. On top of that, we discovered that Qualcomm is also promoting the upcoming smartphone - which makes perfect sense, since the handset is going to feature one of the company's Snapdragon SoCs. 

While we can’t know for sure what Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset the new HTC One will use at launch, we’re assuming that it’s going to be a quad-core 801 model - similar to what Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2 are using.

In Qualcomm’s own words, the 2014 HTC One is “a stylish new Snapdragon powered device” that will allow you to "#OneUp your mobile experience." Like the 2013 One, the new model has a metallic construction, so “stylish” is a pretty good word to describe it.

March 25 is the day when HTC will finally announce the All New One. The smartphone should go on sale the same day in select markets - possibly including the US, where Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile will join AT&T in stocking the device. This means that the new One will have an advantage over Samsung’s Galaxy S5, which goes on sale on April 11 (although pre-orders are already open).

Props to Qualcomm and HTC. At least this time, HTC is not letting Sammy suck the oxygen out of the room (parts shortages last year that delayed the ship date for the OG One).

As a Note 3 owner, and as a Samsung customer I hope the new One will give Samsung a good fight, but sadly it won't, no one has the marketing power of Sammy and Apple. We need more competition, it will only benefit us the consumers, resulting in better prices and better products.

Yeah, well the last time around, Sammy not only used their marketing muscle, they bought up a bunch of production of major parts (I don't recall what was involved, but it was enough to add ~3 to 4 months to HTC's roll-out) used by the OG One. It is one thing to compete on features, but to embargo parts borders on the unethical.

back it up with sources please. The one thing I am sure about, is that the HTC One wasn't able to meet demand due to design difficulties, precisely the tough process in building the aluminum body of the phone. I remember reading that it took 200 minutes to build the aluminum block for every single One produced.

Nah.. As far as marketing goes, Nokia doesnt have the deep pocket unlike Samsung and Apple but its marketing department are a bunch of creative people.. Lumia 925's first ever video was such as a great one..

you mean the one where they shot it with a professional camera and got busted? Nokia and Windows fails miserably when it comes to commercials, I have NEVER seen a Nokia commercial talking about anything other than the Camera, no mentions what so ever for the software, features, design, accessories, apps, absolutely nothing!

Is the Dragon chest thumping in reply to K1 in a round about way? Or trying to aid a long time buyer in promotions? Hard to tell...

Lol, I careless over this phone but I pray they hurt Samsung with sale. I use the note series of Samsung phones and I love touchwiz. I know for sure if Samsung sales are hurt the next note will be a killer. It will take manufacturers years to match the next note experience. Even my current note 3 still feels ahead of the new phones coming out this year.

Unfortunately, until 64-bit OS is ready for 64-bit SoC, no benefit will be realized.
