Basics

There’s a lot of new stuff unique to the HTC One (M8) in Sense 6, but first the basics: It’s an Android 4.4 KitKat smartphone packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.3GHz quad core processor, has 2GB of RAM, and includes either 16GB or 32GB of onboard storage with up to 128GB expandable microSD card storage. LTE is supported, of course, and there’s Bluetooth 3.0, NFC, 802.11ac Wi-Fi (that’s rare for a smartphone) and an IR blaster. Sensors including the standard accelerometer, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor and gyro, as well as a barometer for detecting changes in air pressure immediately around you.

The battery has 2600 mAh capacity, and HTC says that’ll be good for up to 20 hours of 3G talk time, or up to 496 hours of standby on a 3G network connection, which is probably going to be roughly comparable to what the 2,800 mAh powerhouse on the slightly larger-screened Galaxy S5 will offer.

 


Throwback Case And Notifications

Another interesting part of the HTC One is its case – HTC has created a Dot View case that uses the above-mentioned Motion Launch gestures to provide essential information at a glance. The case displays key info like texts, emails, calls and weather notifications without activating the screen, and instead showing the info with a retro, dot-matrix style readout.

Paired with the metal finish, it’s a good look, and one that should help HTC stand out in the Android crowd.

Pricing and Availability (International/USA) (Click to show)
Before the end of April the HTC One will launch in Australia, UK, Taiwan, France, Canada and the US. Sense 6 will come to HTC One devices released in 2013 in April, too. HTC One (M8) will have broad in-store U.S. and Canadian availability in the first few weeks of April, and by April 10, but users can buy it online at 1PM ET today online direct from AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Rogers, Bell and Telus in North America. Verizon will also have them in-store exclusively as of 1 PM ET today. Pricing in Canada is around $229 on a two-year agreement, or $700 outright, with American carriers offering it at around $649 without agreement or $199 with new two-year contracts. It’s also available in gold exclusively at Best Buy, where it can be purchased now for all major U.S. carriers.

 

 

'Bout damn time they added a microSD slot onto the HTC One!

EDIT: A dual A57 would be nice... but I'd settle for an 801.

It better be the 1820, and it better be coming to Canada. Otherwise... well... I'll do something crazy...

Like just buy it off amazon and get it shipped to Canada sad-smiley-002.gif

They used the same camera that's in the original One, right? If so, that's a shame. I have the HTC One M7 and although the camera is good, it could be a lot better. Guess I won't be upgrading frown.gif

HTC dropped the ball this round again, I hate Samsung, LG phones etc etc because they all feel like cheap plastic. I really miss flashing kernels and roms but I guess ill be upgrading to an iPhone 6 mad.gif
