HTC has unveiled a 'new smartphone', or rather a revamped version of HTC One. This is seen as a major attempt by the company to regain lost market share.
The news that HTC has revamped the HTC One comes only a few months after the Digital Journal reported that HTC launched two new smartphones called the 8X and the 8S. This indicates that technology companies continue to be driven by the need to innovate (or to at least to bring out 'new' products).
According to CNET, unlike the 8X and the 8S, the new HTC One uses Google's updated Android operating system called the Jelly Bean. The phone features a 4.7in (12cm) 1080p high display and includes what is described as an ultrapixel camera. The phone is an update of the previous One X model.
Other aspects of note, the Daily Telegraph picks, include the main body of the smartphone, which is made fully of aluminium and has front-facing stereo speakers. The 1080p screen offers 468ppi.
The full spec is:
Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 1.7GHz quad
OS Jelly Bean and new HTC Sense
Display: 4.7” 1080p Full HD
HTC UltraPixel sensor, dedicated HTC ImageChip 2
Front-facing 2.1 MP wide angle f/2.0 camera
