Ever since HTC lost the crucial flagship battle to Samsung Galax S II, it has been hit by bad news again and again. Now, HTC has a new flagship smart phone that is about to launch. The HTC One may be the one that will put the company back to the arena.
Those who have already seen and handled the HTC One were impressed by its stylish design of all-aluminum unibody and large display. But there are even more good features inside the metal enclosure too.
The HTC One is equipped with a Snapdragon quad-core 1.7GHZ processor with Android 4.1.2 OS (Jelly Bean), which could be upgraded to version 4.2.2. The Screen is a full 4.7-inch HD display with 1080×1920 pixel resolution. It comes with two storage options: 32GB and 64GB with 2GB of RAM. Beside LTE capability, it also supports Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and so on.
The Camera is one of the selling points of HTC One. The HTC comes with a 4-megapixel rear-facing camera with 2688×1520 resolution, which may not sounds impressive.

They monitor the ambient noise levels of your environment and adjust the user’s volume up to compensate for the racket. Also, its “BoomSound” technology offers dual-front speakers to deliver bigger sound with less distortion comparing with previous generation phones.
The HTC One was supposed to be launched in March but was delayed due to complications arising from parts suppliers. The HTC One will be released in April and pre-orders will be fulfilled by the end of March. It will be available from all major U.S. wireless
carriers at retail price $199 with a standard two-year service contract and applicable data plan.
