After they got their hands on a leaked brochure from Telstra, the team at GSMArena were also able to confirm other specs from the device as well as getting a look a the features that HTC is banking on setting the All New HTC One apart from the competition.
To start with they’ve confirmed that hardware wise the All New HTC One will come with a decent list of specs, which will hold it in good stead against the competition coming to market this year. All New HTC One Specs:
- 5″ 1080p
- 2.3GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801
- 16GB (with 10GB of available storage) + microSD Card slot
- ‘Ultrapixel’ 1/3.0″, f/2.0 aperture, 2µm pixel Rear Camera with 5MP Front Facing camera
- 2600mAh Battery
- 146.36×70.6×9.35mm @ 160grams
GSMArena has also updated their Specs page for the All New HTC One.
As well as the updated specs, the list of features that the All New HTC One will have has been detailed in this sales guide that’s destined to help sales assistants move the phone into customers hands. Once again the Boomsound speakers are a major component, as is the easy to hold design. Software features like HTC Zoes and Blinkfeed are once again being focused on, with all new components.
New features will include the ‘Duo Camera’ which will use the dual cameras on the back of the phone to allow keen photographers to re-focus their photos in post processing. A new ‘Selfie’ mode will help produce a whole new slew of the inevitable Instagram ‘Duckface’ photos.
Gestures will play a part in the software/hardware combo of the phone. A new double tap to wake ‘Motion Launch’ feature will be an interesting concept, possibly a feature that comes as a result of licensing Nokias patents earlier this year. It will be interesting to see how it compares against their Lumia counterparts as well as against LG ‘Knock’. A new gesture – for HTC anyway – will also allow you to answer phone calls merely by lifting the phone to your ear.
It’s a mere couple of weeks to the March 25th launch, where we’ll be sure to see all these features showed off in full.
