HTC unveiled its gorgeous new flagship phone, the HTC One, Tuesday at events staged at the same time in New York and London. Not looking like any other phone on the market, the Taiwanese handset maker’s latest flagship Android phone carved out of a solid block of aluminum has a next-generation processor and the densest, most colorful screen. It has what you’d expect from a brand new smartphone: 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 proc, 32 to 64GB of onboard storage, 2GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, LTE and a 2300mAh battery. The screen is a whopping 4.7 inches with a 468ppi 1080p Super LCD 3 display. It runs Android 4.1.2 wrapped in a newer version of HTC’s Sense and hundreds of thousands of apps. It turns your photos into videos and boots into something that looks like Flipboard. And it’ll be available on several major U.S. carriers.
HTC’s Windows Phone 8X and Windows Phone 8S, the bold and colorful handsets a perfect match for Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 user interface, are the first real Windows Phone smartphones by HTC. Although the company has introduced some devices that run Windows Phone before, it appears that HTC is finally taking Windows Phone seriously. The Taiwan-based company is diversifying its handset portfolio with a different operating system, ecosystem and partner.
With a pretty underwhelming Gorilla Glass-coated 4-inch WVGA LCD screen, Windows Phone 8S has a similarly middleweight 5-megapixel camera and is cocooned in a matte plastic finish, arriving in four different color options — depending on carrier and territory. You can enjoy a strong, long-lasting battery via its powerful dual-core performance.
