All New HTC One keeps leaking away: specs, sales guide subjects of latest find

It’s not quite to the point where we can set our watches by it, but the incessant pace at which leaks detailing HTC’s All New One have been arriving has been beating away like a metronome, punctuating the days until the Android smartphone finally goes official. Earlier today we got a really great one, featuring some ad copy that talked about a few hardware and software features, and in the course of doing so answered some long-standing questions about what to expect from that dual camera arrangement. Now we get some new information, presumably from the same source, identifying some key phone specs and giving us a peek at some insider sales info.

Much of this has been reported before: we’re likely to get a phone with a five-inch 1080p display, running a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801, and offering 16GB storage (though this time expandable via microSD). Main camera specs appear to closely align with the UltraPixel sensor on last year’s One, but resolution isn’t specifically spelled-out. And again, we’re probably going to see a high-res 5MP front-facer.

The more interesting part of this is the sales guide, written to give retail employees some talking points to use when presenting the one to potential customers. We learned quite a bit about the “Duo Camera” arrangement from that earlier leak, but this goes into even more detail, mentioning features like being able to tweak focus after-the-fact; it will be interesting to see how HTC might pull that off, as that’s normally a thing we associate with plenoptic cameras like the Lytro, and there’s a chance that may just be a software trick.
