Watch the entire HTC One introduction right here, right now
Unless you were in a coma or on a Carnival Cruise, you probably know that on Tuesday, Taiwan based HTC unveiled the HTC One. Formerly known as the HTC M7, the HTC One is a sleek looking piece of kit constructed of aluminum in a unibody design. With a 4.7 inch FHD display, the screen brings an industry leading 468ppi pixel density to the table while on back is the HTC UltraPixel camera. A quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm processor powers the phone.

Has HTC introduced a model that will turn things around for them? That remains to be seen. While flagship models seem to be increasing their screen sizes with each new generation, HTC decided to reduce the size of the screen on the HTC One, which results in the higher pixel density.  Will buyers be thankful that HTC has taken its new top-shelf phone back under 5 inches? This is a question that will be answered in the future. For now, feel free to click on the video below to watch the festivities that took place yesterday in London.

You might notice two videos. One contains all 37 minutes of the introduction while the other shows the highlights.

Those differences are minimal and the average customer will not care. Hell the power user won't even care. htc has a great product that looks promising and I hope them well.

well the 600 is more powerful than the s4 pro with better power efficiency, and so far the reveiws about the z's camera havent been good, and s-lcd3 has been said to be the best display around sooo....

the leaked picture of htc one was out days before bbz10 launch, so I say yes to HTC copied the back of iphone 5, but they didn't copy it from bbz10. in fact, it's bbz10 that copied iphone 5 so that htc one and bbz10 look alike

I dont really know where smartphone manufactures are taking the specs of their smartphones to. I use a Lumia 920 and am so ok with it. Why really do i need a quad core smartphone whiles i have a notebook pc. Am i gonna convert videos on the phone or what? i think manufactures like Samsung and Htc are too much in haste. they sometimes paint the Android Os black, because consumers might turn out to blame the OS for not performing well on other processor configurations like dual-cores. Honestly my dual core Lumia serves me well and i dont think i need a quad core now.

seriously , My Lumia 920 serves me well and am ok with it. it doesnt need any quad core processor to do its job. it does it just fine.
