Amidst the mobile chaos brought about by Apple?s iPhone 5 and Samsung?s S4, HTC has come up with its new flagship smartphone that has been attracting attention lately — the HTC One.
Embodied in a zero-gap aluminum unibody and displaying a 4.7-inch Full HD (1080P) screen, the new HTC smartphone sports the latest Android Jelly Bean operating system and LTE network technology.
?HTC One caters to the ultimate need of the consumer to be up to date with information and the people we care about. It reflects the company?s growing effort to put the consumer at the center of innovation,? said HTC Philippines country manager Richard Javier.
At the core of the new HTC One experience is the HTC BlinkFeed which virtually transforms the home screen into a single live stream of personally relevant information such as social, entertainment and lifestyle updates, the latest news and photos with immersive images so that people need not apply separate applications to find out what?s happening.
HTC Blinkfeed aggregates everything at a glance, all in one place without the need to jump between multiple applications and Web sites.
The HTC Zoe, meanwhile, provides people the ability to shoot high-res photos that come to life in three-second snippets. The Zoes photos and videos are then showed in a way that the photo gallery of photos are transformed into a motion gallery of memories.
The HTC UltraPixel Camera, on the other hand, has other features and effects such as enhanced 360? panorama, time sequencing, and object removal.
Finally, the new HTC One?s BoomSound offers for the first time on a phone front-facing stereo speakers with a sexy amplifier and an full HD display that immerses people in music, videos, games and other Web clips.
The HTC One retails for P32,990.
