New Delhi: When we tested the HTC One, we found it to beautiful to look at and powerful to play but there is still no clarity about the official launch date for the phone.
Now online shopping site Saholic has listed the phone at a price of Rs 42,900 and assures delivery within eight business days.
The phone runs Google's Android software, but HTC has grafted its own home screen on the phone, one that's similar to that of Microsoft's Windows Phone software.
The new HTC One has a 4.7-inch (12-centimetre) screen, making it larger than the iPhone but smaller than some other Android phones, the Samsung Galaxy S4. The display also resists scratches and reduces glare, whilst offering 468ppi resolution.
The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz. It has 2GB DDR2 RAM and 32GB of total storage. HTC One features two speakers, at the top and bottom of the screen, producing a stereo effect when the phone is turned on its side for movie viewing. Another not-so-common feature is an infrared diode that lets the phone serve as a universal remote for a TV or media centre.
The new HTC One feature the HTC UltraPixel Camera - a new imaging technology. The UltraPixel sensor is engineered with larger pixels, and it is touted to enable each pixel to capture more than 300 per cent more light than most leading 13 megapixel cameras. This is because the larger each pixel on the image sensor is, the more light it receives, and hence the image data becomes better.
