Today is the big day for HTC. The Taiwanese smartphone maker has been struggling for almost two years to maintain its relevance in the cutthroat mobile industry. With profits dwindling and the high-end Android market virtually monopolized by Samsung, HTC must deliver a great smartphone today. Will the HTC One mark the beginning of the comeback for the once mighty HTC? We’ll see in just a few hours.
To ensure the biggest possible impact, HTC opted to have simultaneous HTC One launch events, in London and New York. It’s a testament to the company’s determination to make the HTC One the device of the moment.
The HTC One (previously known under the M7 codename) is rumored to have a full HD display, an innovative camera featuring a layered sensor (its resolution measured in Ultrapixels), stereo speakers, and a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. We also expect to see the latest iteration of the HTC Sense overlay today, with leaked screenshots indicating a major redesign is in the pipeline. Surprises are not excluded.
Android Authority will be attending the New York HTC One launch event, starting at 10AM EST. Kristofer Wouk will be there to bring you hands-on images and video of the HTC One, first impressions, and quick comparisons with some of the hottest devices of the moment. Kris will be live blogging the event and try to answer your questions about the new HTC One.
Stay tuned, we’ll be updating this post with links to our full coverage. Meanwhile, check out our rumor roundup and feel free to sound off your impressions about the HTC One in the comments section.

@Nameless. And you know it’s hype how exactly? What type of “fanboy” are you, Apple, Samsung???? Yours is precisely the type of comment the internet would be far better off without!!
It’s already leaked. The video below is in German, but you get the idea:
It took less than 15 mins for that video to be pulled…now, if the phone was as fast, they would have a range topper for sure!
Here are some screenshots of the video:
It’s not as good as the real video, but it’s something. The picture leaked by EVLEAKS are real. The button placement is really a weird choice by HTC… Not happy about that. I will see what the S4 will bring.
There were 2 video leaked out there, but both have been taken down.
This website has some screenshots of one of the video’s:
That phone is so darn ugly!!!
Hands on 5 minute version:
The UI is a bit confusing. May need some sense to get used to it (pun intended). It’s like a combination of Windows 8 Tile and Android Widget.
The black one looks great, but I ain’t gonna buy from this brand again..
:P will have to wait for a couple of weeks for reviews and all to decide whether this phone is worth getting.. currently im struggling between the note 2 and s4. this may be it,
wait my phone at march 14 or 15
