HTC One goes official

Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 kick off with HTC event on the first day! HTC just officially announce their new flagship phone, HTC One (Previously known as M7). Let's take a look on the spec first.

HTC One Key Specification :

  • 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 with 1080p resolution (469ppi)
  • 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 600
  • Adreno 320
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32/64 GB internal memory
  • 4MP back facing camera with 1080p@30fps video recording (with HDR)
  • 2.1MP front facing camera
  • NFC
  • 2300 mAh
  • Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean

Don't be surprise with the 4MP back camera. HTC said it is "Ultrapixels", which are much larger than the regular smartphone pixels and promise vastly improved per-pixel quality and low-light performance. The HTC One made out of aluminum and is about 9.3 mm thick.

My Opinion : Well I am abit surprise with the 4MP but hey, as a photographer myself I know megapixel is not everything. HTC One camera features 1/3" BSI sensor, f2 and also 28 mm lens which is good enough to satisfy casual shooter. Of course I would love to see the showdown between HTC One and Nokia lumia 920. My bet, if this phone market properly it will be a hit ;)
