2014 HTC One hands-on video leaks early, fully exposes phone
March 25 is the day HTC is expected to release the 2014 follow-up for the HTC One, and even without today’s leak, we were wondering what else is there that HTC can say in order to surprise us. The phone, and its features, related aspects, have been leaked extensively over the past couple of weeks, but today we’re seeing a full 14-minute video hands-on of the yet unannounced device.
It is German, so if you don’t happen to speak the language, you’ll have to settle for the video footage itself. Apparently the phone is being called “HTC One” and not “The New HTC One”, at least that’s what’s being said in the video. There’s talk about hardware: the five-inch Full HD display, quad-core Snapdragon 801 SoC, 2GB of RAM, but the internal storage is being mentioned as 60GB — which we’re sure is a mistake from 16GB — as well as 32GB options, not for Germany). 5MP camera on the front, and a combo of a 4.1MP and a 2MP camera on the back (which don’t offer 3D capabilities) with dual LED flashes that have different color temperatures (think iPhone 5s), in addition to the usual suspects.
As far as software is concerned, Android 4.4.2 is being mentioned with HTC Sense 6 on top of it. For software features (like the UI, Camera, double-tap to wake up, and more), check out the video below.
