This week is going to be known as the Samsung Galaxy S4 week, as we build up to the launch of the Samsung flagship on March 14. But difficult to ignore is another absolutely stunning device that will be making its way to Best Buy store shelves near you very soon, the HTC One.
According to a tip received by Phone Arena, Best Buy has put up signs teasing the launch of the highly-anticipated HTC One, which also says that the device is up for pre-order in stores now. In the US, he HTC flagship device will be available from network carriers AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, with the smartphone expected to be released later this month. In case you need a reminder, here’s a quick look at the amazing specifications of the HTC One –
- 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 display with 1920×1080 resolution
- 1.7 Ghz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor
- Adreno 320 GPU
- 2GB RAM
- 32/64GB internal storage, no microSD expansion available
- 4 UltraPixel rear camera with HTC ImageChip 2, 2.1MP front camera
- 2,300 mAh battery
- Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 5 and Blinkfeed
One of the biggest problems HTC has faced in the last two years is a failure in marketing and advertising, but HTC now has plans to rectify those mistakes, and will be more aggressive in raising consumer interest in some of the great features the device has to offer, including Blinkfeed, the new UltraPixel camera, and BoomSound.
HTC has fallen a long way from the being the top Android device manufacturer only a few years back, and hopefully this time around, the company will enjoy the comeback it so richly deserves.
