Contrary to speculations, Verizon did not unveil its own HTC One version during its media event at CTIA 2013, introducing instead J.Lo’s Viva Movil mobile experience of which Verizon is an exclusive partner. In addition…
HTC sent out a tweet Monday morning containing yet another teaser image for its big announcement on Tuesday. The latest image shows a little over 12 devices hidden under black cloths. 9to5google points out that one of the devices seems to be a 10-inch tablet as it is much larger than all of the other devices shown.
Rumors of a tablet unveiling on Tuesday have been extremely scarce, but based off of the unedited image it wouldn't be much of a surprise if HTC were to announce a tablet. In fact, it's possible that we could see an Ubuntu powered HTC tablet as Ubuntu has posted up a timer on its website that ends when HTC's event begins.
Coincidence? It's possible, but like Samsung, HTC may not want to put all of its eggs in one basket, thus branching out to other operating systems. It's highly speculative, so it's best to take this with a large grain of salt. In the meantime, the HTC One has a massive potential to wow consumers.
HTC has been teasing us with all sorts of images for some time now. One of its more recent teasers has been an SLR camera lens, which is no doubt referring to the 13 megapixel rear shooter. The lens also shows the numbers 2, 19 and 13 on the body of the lens, which points towards events that HTC will be holding in New York and London on Tuesday.
Another image showed an eye, which also could have something to deal with camera technology, as HTC immediately tweeted “On average, a person blinks 16 times per minute,” after putting up the photo of the eye. At the same time, HTC could be referring of its full HD display for the One.
Other images indicate that the device is going to support dual speakers, which may or may not be Beats audio considering some of the company's past devices have used Beats audio.
If all goes well, the One will easily be one of the best devices HTC has ever released. No doubt they are looking to make the experience for the end user near perfect with the 13 megapixel camera, possibility of dual speakers and the full HD display. The only question is, will HTC be able to pull this off?
Sure, HTC can pack in a great audio and camera experience, but something that is going to play a big part in its experience is Sense. We all know that Sense isn't as popular as Samsung's TouchWiz interface or even stock Android for that matter. We'll just have to see how well the device is received at the big event on Tuesday.
Be sure to stay tuned with Android Authority as we'll be at HTC's event to cover the big launch of the HTC One!
