Other key features include:

HTC BlinkFeed:
At the centre of the new HTC One experience is HTC BlinkFeed. HTC BlinkFeed is a bold new experience that transforms the home screen into a single live stream of personally relevant information such as social updates, entertainment and lifestyle updates, news and photos with immersive images so that people no longer need to go to separate applications to find out what’s happening. HTC BlinkFeed aggregates the freshest content from the most relevant and interesting sources, giving it to people at a glance, all in one place, without the need to jump between multiple applications and web sites.

To enable this new dynamic approach to the smartphone, HTC will provide both local and global content from more than 1,400 media sources with more than 10,000 articles per day from some of the most innovative media companies, such as the AOL family of media properties, ESPN, MTV, Vice Media, CoolHunting, Reuters and many others. For more information on HTC BlinkFeed’s content partners, visit the HTC Blog.

HTC UltraPixel Camera with HTC Zoe
The breakthrough HTC UltraPixel Camera redefines how people capture, relive and share their most precious moments. HTC Zoe gives people the ability to shoot high-res photos that come to life in three-second snippets. These Zoes, photos and videos are then displayed in a unique way that brings the gallery to life and transforms the traditional photo gallery of still images into a motion gallery of memories. It also automatically creates integrated highlight films from each event comprised of Zoes, photos and videos set to music with professionally designed cuts, transitions and effects. These highlight videos can be remixed or set to different themes, and can be easily shared on social networks, email and other services.

To enable this innovative camera experience, HTC developed a custom camera that includes a best-in-class f/2.0 aperture lens and a breakthrough sensor with UltraPixels that gather 300 percent more light than traditional smartphone camera sensors. This new approach also delivers astounding low-light performance and a variety of other improvements to photos and videos. In addition, the perfect self-portrait or video is just a tap away with an ultra-wide angle front-facing camera which supports 1080p video capture. Multi-axis optical image stabilisation for the rear camera also helps ensure video footage smoother whether stationary or on the move. HTC UltraPixel camera adds many other features and effects such as enhanced 360' panorama, time sequencing and object removal.

HTC BoomSound
The new HTC One offers the best audio experience of any mobile phone available today. HTC BoomSound introduces for the first time on a phone, front-facing stereo speakers with a dedicated amplifier and an amazing full HD display that immerses people in music, videos, games and the YouTube™ clips they love. Beats Audio™ integration is enabled across the entire experience for rich, authentic sound whether you’re listening to your favorite music, watching a YouTube video or playing a game.

HDR recording uses advanced dual microphones and audio processing to capture clean, rich sound that is worthy of high-definition video footage. Phone calls sound great on HTC One thanks to the addition of HTC Sense Voice™, which boosts the call volume and quality in noisy environments so that conversations come through loud and clear.

HTC Sense TV
HTC Sense TV transforms the new HTC One into an interactive program guide and remote control for most TVs, set-top boxes and receivers. Tapping the power of the cloud, Sense TV makes it simple and intuitive to see what’s on and find that favourite show.

Pricing & Availability
The new HTC One will be available globally through more than 185 mobile operators and major retailers in more than 80 regions and countries beginning in March. Pricing has yet to be announced.

jujubeats - May 8, 2013 at 5:38pm

zeppy - February 28, 2013 at 2:45pm
F u Apple. You already lost me and millions of others as lifetime customers. Please wish me much enjoyment in using the HTC One as my next phone. Thanks Apple!
justabrake - February 21, 2013 at 12:59pm
watching the videos on this phone makes me hope apple comes out with a bigger phone soon ! I'd jump ship but I don't like android
John - February 20, 2013 at 5:24pm
Not sure about that. It does have 2300 battery ant that is a lot. But as we know Sense eats battery a lot so we'll just have to wait and see real tests before talking. But I also must admit it is adorable piece of design.
justabrake - February 20, 2013 at 11:46am
I think apple could sue because of the speaker holes look like apples
Blondiexx - July 15, 2013 at 12:14pm
well tbh every phone has got to have a speaker i personally dont think that what it looks like will effect it
Ooh - February 20, 2013 at 5:31am
Looks exactly like the BlackBerry Z10

Finally a legitimate iPhone 5 competitor, htc and apple are really the only two mobile device manufacturers that are even worth considering in terms of design, customizable OS, build quality and overall user experience, all other companies fall short in these areas and are in dire need of improvement

I never buy the S integrations of the iPhone but Apple seriously needs to step it up for iPhone six or I'm definitely switching to android I never thought I'd say that
wittybob - February 20, 2013 at 4:57am
You know you'll have to wait until late 2013 for an iPhone 6 unless Apple changes it's release pattern. I tend to disagree with avoiding the "S" models... good example of this is the 4S... no "antennagate" problem, plus you got Siri. I'd consider sticking to the S line, but as you've said, if Apple doesn't step it up soon (i.e. Larger Screen) I also may migrate to something else.
Dyllon - February 20, 2013 at 1:59pm
Antennagate wasn't a real issue, And I could have Siri with a simple hack
Dyllon - February 20, 2013 at 3:00pm
It's not even the screen I'm worried about I just want a intuitive customizable interface with advanced features and debugging with out the need for a jailbreak. I kinda really like the grid interface windows and HTC are doing lately but I don't want the squished black menus of android
odedoo1 - February 20, 2013 at 1:35am
As much as I love all my Apple devices I think it's safe to say that Apple fell Asleep since Steve Jobs died and now everybody else caught up and I must admit that I see some really cool staff lately and I'm not talking about made by Apple.

Just wait till Samsung comes out with s4 and note 3. Or Google X phone You will be more surprise.
amx - February 20, 2013 at 12:56am
Just like HD2 with little body change and lot of performance!
pkmaximum - February 20, 2013 at 12:56am
Not a fan of Android so it does not really matter, but this is one slick looking phone. If they could make this with Windows Phone 8 support, then it would be an awesome contender.
amx - February 20, 2013 at 12:58am
just wait for some hackers to get their hands in to this phone. Just like HD2 they will come out with something.
