The One (M7) is the big bet of HTC for this 2013 and plans to compete head to head against the Samsung Galaxy S4, which will be presented in March, and the iPhone 5S, expected by mid-year.
The One will feature an aluminum case and comes with a full HD display (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) of 4.7 with Super LCD technology 3 and a pixel density of 469 ppi. Also will incorporate a Snapdragon 600 processor with four cores at 1.7 GHz Krait and GPU Adreno 300 which will be accompanied by 2 GB of RAM.
As for internal memory, we find 32 GB (possibly have another 64 GB model), which can be expanded with microSD cards. As for the OS, the One (M7) will incorporate Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Sense 5.0 interface, but expect a speedy upgrade to Android 4.2.2, as will happen with the Sony Xperia Z.
Perhaps the biggest innovation can be seen in the camera. The HTC One comes with a sensor stacked with ultrapixeles like the Foveon X3. The sensor has only 4 million ultrapixeles, but are not directly equivalent to pixels of a normal camera sensor, so that the picture quality will be considerably greater. The sensor is located behind an f/2.0 lens.
There are also news about buttons. The device has only two capacitive buttons: Home and Back. Doing a long press on Home, leads us to Google Now, while a long press Back, takes us to task switcher as in Windows Phone.
The HTC One has a 2300 mAh battery (not removable) and will have 9.3mm thick as well as microSIM card slot, microUSB port, WiFi, Bluetooth and classics sensors.
How about the new HTC One? Can the HTC One compete head to head with the Galaxy S4 or the next iPhone?
