It’s late, but it’s finally here.
Last week, HTC officially launched its flagship smartphone in the Philippines – the new HTC One. Country Manager of HTC Philippines Richard Javier emphasizes the importance of keeping their devices up to date to be able to cope with the needs of the people. He adds that the HTC One is the result of HTC’s continued effort to put the consumer’s needs in their topmost priority.
The HTC One sports a zero-gap aluminum unibody with a 4.7-inch, full HD (1080p) screen and 468ppi resolution. It runs on the latest Android Jelly Bean and is LTE capable to offer users speedy mobile browsing. Color variations of the HTC One are available in stunning silver and stealth black.
The key features that distinctively make the HTC One stand out are the HTC BlinkFeed, HTC Zoe, and the HTC BoomSound. These key HTC Sense innovations set the bar high for smartphones in giving the best mobile experience to the consumers.
HTC BlinkFeed lets users transform their home screen into a single live stream of their favorite sites. Here, users can see fresh updates from their social media accounts, news and blogs at a glance so you won’t have to go to different applications to be on the know. HTC has partnered with media companies such as AOL, MTV, ESPN, Reuters to provide more than 1,400 media sources with more than 10,000 articles per day.
The HTC One features the HTC Ultrapixel Camera with HTC Zoe that would enables photo-enthusiasts to take quality photos even in low light. HTC Zoe lets users shoot 3-second snippets (about 20 still photos) to catch the perfect moments. Photos and videos are displayed into a motion gallery of memories. The Zoe also creates slideshows automatically with a twist by setting background music and adding themes and effects to the video for that unique camera experience.
HTC is well known for the quality audio experience their devices produce with the integration of the Beats Audio that is exclusive to the brand. For the first time, HTC introduces the HTC BoomSound in the HTC One. Users will even get better sound quality with its dual front-facing speakers with a dedicated amplifier. Watching videos, playing games or simply listening to your playlist becomes even more enjoyable with the HTC BoomSound.
The HTC One retails at Php32, 990 and becomes available today, May 24, 2013 at HTC concept stores.
