HTC CEO Peter Chou at the Mobile World Conference, has unveiled its new “HTC One” series of smartphones that represent its most premium mobile experience with a new level of iconic design and amazing camera and authentic sound experience.
HTC One series will be available beginning in April with broad global availability through more than 140 mobile operators and distributors.
With HTC’s most premium experience, the HTC One series integrates Android 4.0 (ICS) with HTC Sense 4, the new version of HTC’s branded user experience that is introducing HTC ImageSense, a new suite of camera and imaging features that set HTC One apart from other phones. “With ImageSense HTC One rivals traditional digital cameras with improvements to every part of the camera, including the lens, the sensor, the software, and even integrating a new custom HTC ImageChip,” posted HTC.
If you own money and don’t mind paying for it, the HTC One X and the HTC One S could be yours as soon as April 5th, and the HTC One V to follow shortly. For £492, $745 you can own a SIM unlocked HTC One X, or for £450, $715 you can get the HTC One S. The HTC One V will be selling for £264, $419.
HTC Sense 4 also includes broad enhancements to audio quality and simplifies how people listen to music on their phone. Chou talks “PhotoSense technology,” which allows for extremely fast image shooting and enhanced photo quality. The video experience has also been rethought too, as users can now take photos and shooting videos simultaneously.
HTC has also integrated Dropbox into HTC Sense 4 enabling HTC One customers to get 25 gigabytes of free Dropbox space for two years. That’s enough to keep more than 10,000 high-quality photos. Dropbox is also integrated throughout HTC Sense 4, so it’s easy to edit, save and share your documents and other kinds of files.
With HTC One you just plug in HTC’s wireless Media Link HD accessory into your TV’s HDMI port, to easily share your photos, videos, or anything else on your phone with your friends, family or colleagues regardless of the television’s brand as long as it has HDMI.
HTC One offers Beats By Dr. Dre Audio integration.
HTC One X will be one of the first phones in the U.S. to feature HTC Sense4, the new version of HTC’s branded user experience that introduces ImageSense, a suite of camera and imaging features with improvements to every part of the camera.
HTC One X will also be AT&T’s first smartphone with Beats By Dr. Dre Audio built-in to the hardware and software. Beats Audio on the HTC One X is enabled across the entire multimedia audio experience including apps, offering richer, more authentic sound on music, games, videos and movies.
