HTC One officially announced, will be available globally beginning in March

HTC One M7 Philippines

In an event earlier today, HTC has finally announced their flagship Android smartphone for 2013, the HTC One.

The HTC One embodies a gorgeous design with diamond-cut precision edges and an all-aluminum unibody. They also decided to go the 4.7-inch route for the display size, despite the other manufacturers opting for 5-inch displays. It’s a full HD 1080p display which equates to 468ppi, which is like the sharpest display I’ve heard of in terms of pixel density.

HTC also introduced three new features which will come on the HTC One. They are HTC BlinkFeed, a stream of updates right on your homescreen, HTC Zoe, which is like Vine for your gallery app because it compiles photo stills and videos in an album (from what I understand as of now), and HTC BoomSound, which is composed of the front-facing stereo speakers with integrated amplifier.

They also dubbed of their new Ultrapixel creation. HTC developed a custom image sensor that allows more light to be taken in by using lesser but larger pixels. HTC says that up to 300% more light can be seen by the sensor that will help in low-light situations.

That should be it for now. I’ll share more opinions when I get the chance to try it.
