Combine the flexibility of Android Jelly Bean OS and the chic tiled appearance of a Windows phone, and the resulting final product is the HTC One, the latest successor to the flagship HTC One X. HTC has been out of the business after Samsung started marketing better and better phones at every price range. The tables are going to turn in the days to come since HTC is now back in business after it unveiled its latest and highly awaited phone HTC One in New York yesterday.
Earlier popular under the codename M7, the phone has been released into the market under the name HTC One. With this innovation, HTC is all set to be back in the top five smartphone manufacturers in the IDC report.
The new and most notable features of the phone, in the software segment, are the new BlinkFeed, a technology that allows you to see live feed in tiles that are updated in real-time. A bit like the Flipboard application and more like the Microsoft Windows 8 phone where you can see all the activity on one screen that can be scrolled infinitely.
Another completely new and unique feature is the UltraPixel camera. Unlike the conventional cameras, the pixels of the phone allow thrice as much as light as a normal phone camera can, allowing crisper pictures and superior low light performance. Though the camera has only a 4MP sensor, the performance was noted to be much better than the camera on the Samsung Galaxy SIII.
Dual speakers on the top and bottom of the phone in portrait mode for best video viewing and an IR transmitter that will function as an Universal remote for any conventional TV or IR operated device are features to look forward.
