Detailed hardware info of HTC’s All New One, aka One (2014), has leaked online, along with a sales guide that reveals how the Taiwanese manufacturer intends to sell the device to consumers.
Details on the All New One, HTC’s upcoming flagship, continue to be spilled out ahead of its official unveil on March 25th. The latest leak claims to reveal more of its hardware specifications, just a few hours after the mystery behind the dual camera setup on the handset’s back was solved through leaked retailer documents.
According to GSMArena, the All New One will sport a Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3GHz (the Galaxy S5 uses an 801 clocked at 2.5GHz), 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch Full HD display, 16GB of internal storage with 10GB available for actual usage, a microSD slot with support for 128GB cards, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 2,600 mAh battery. All this will apparently be housed inside a body that measures 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35 mm.
One of the biggest issues with the 2013 One was the low megapixel count of its camera — while it was quite good at low-light imaging, the 4-megapixel UltraPixel sensor failed to capture much detail thanks to its low resolution. GSMArena claims that the technical specs of the camera are the same on the new One – 1/3. inch sensor, f/2.0 aperture, and 2µm pixel size, suggesting HTC has decided to stick with the same resolution, which could disappoint those that were hoping for improvements in the area of fine detail.
However, that’s something a majority of the consumers should be able to overlook, especially when features like the all metal design, amazing sound through HTC’s BoomSound speakers, motion controls and professional photo effects are what the company is planning to tout in retail stores, according to an official sales guide for the device. Well, at least that’s what we hope, since the All New One’s performance in the market could make or break HTC’s future as a major phone manufacturer.
