At this year’s MWC (Mobile World Congress) we saw the unveiling of HTC’s new One Series, Tech on the Go takes a closer look at some of the One Series’ most promising features…
The One Series comprises of three newcomers to the HTC line, starting with the HTC One X, HTC’s quad core exemplar, which boasts a large 4.7 inch Super LCD screen coupled with a powerful Nvidia 1.5GHz quad-core chip which, according to Nvidia, will be NFC capable. This particular device should be compared to the likes of the Huawei Ascend D quad in terms of what to get excited about.
The HTC One S features a smaller 4.3 inch AMOLED screen under Corning Gorilla Glass, and with an overall thickness of 7.9mm, will be HTC’s slimmest device thus far. The One S will make use of a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz processor.
The HTC One V, with a body resembling the design of the popular HTC Legend, will be the least expensive model featured in the One Series, but will offer surprising value for money. Whilst retaining all of the features that made the HTC Legend so popular, HTC have improved the device with a larger 3.7 inch screen and reduced thickness, as well as adding a 1GHz processor into the mix.
All three models will come bundled with a few software goodies courtesy of HTC, which will include Beats audio, found on previous HTC models (Sensation XE and XL). HTC will also be offering their new HTC Image Chip, which will reduce camera boot time to 0.7 seconds, and will also offer a 0.2 second autofocus. Also included in the One Series models are Android Ice Cream Sandwich and a revamped version of HTC Sense UI.
