HTC finally announced their brand new One device in New York City. A true flagship handset, the HTC One boasts some impressive specs. With a 4.7-inch 1080p display (468 PPI), Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 32GB of storage (64GB coming soon), and 2GB of DDR2 RAM, this phone will almost certainly be a competitor for 2013′s best.

Software-wise, the HTC One boasts Android Jelly Bean behind HTC’s Sense 5.0 skin. We’re not sure which version of Jelly Bean we’ll be looking at upon release. The Taiwanese manufacturer plans to release the HTC One in the United States on Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T with 4G LTE access. 182 other carriers will sell the HTC One worldwide.

Built into the device is HTC’s new BoomSound technology. With the biggest resonance chambers of any smartphone speaker system, the HTC One should provide a stellar audio playback experience. With front-facing stereo speakers and a dedicated amplifier, the One’s BoomSound setup is a major improvement over past HTC smartphones.

HTC’s included an UltraPixel camera with an f/2.0 aperture lens. The UltraPixel image sensor allows the One to capture three times more light than other 8-megapixel cameras, which translates to superior low-light performance.

All of the HTC One’s snazzy new parts are packed into a zero-gap aluminum unibody enclosure. Available in siver and black, the aluminum unibody boasts a “unique antenna technology” developed by HTC for maximum reception.

    I would be interested to see how the camera and battery perform. HTC hasn’t been making the most positive steps toward the development community lately though.

    Is “HDR microphone” a typo?
