HTC Shows Off New Flagship Smartphone
Taiwan's HTC has shown off its anticipated HTC One smartphone as the company launches an attempt to regain its position in the Android smartphone market.
Crafted with a aluminum unibody, the new HTC One introduces a range of new software functions in addition to the case design.
At the center of the new HTC One is HTC BlinkFeed -- that transforms the home screen into a single live stream of personally relevant information such as social updates, entertainment and lifestyle updates, news, and photos so that people no longer need to go to separate applications to find out what's happening.
To enable this new approach to the smartphone, HTC will provide both local and global content from more than 1,400 media sources with more than 10,000 articles per day.
HTC says that it has also developed a custom camera that includes a best-in-class f/2.0 aperture lens and a sensor with UltraPixels that gather 300 percent more light than traditional smartphone camera sensors. Optical image stabilization for the rear camera also helps ensure video footage is smooth whether stationary or on the move. HTC Zoe adds many other features and effects, such as enhanced 360-degree panorama, time sequencing and object removal.
Wrapped in a zero-gap aluminum unibody and sporting a brilliant, 4.7-inch, full-HD (1080p) screen, the new HTC One features the latest Android Jelly Bean operating system and LTE connectivity.
The display also resists scratches and reduces glare, while offering 468ppi resolution.
The new HTC One will be available globally through more than 185 mobile operators and major retailers in more than 80 regions and countries beginning next month.
