HTC is updating its flagship HTC One smartphone by giving it a larger screen, better software and a camera that’s easier to use. It’s an amazing phone and it’s exclusive to Verizon Stores for 16 Days starting today at 1PM Eastern. That’s really soon!
The new phone has a screen measuring 5 inches diagonally, up from 4.7 inches in last year’s model. It will help software improvements designed to anticipate your needs, such as offering lunch recommendations when it’s time for lunch. That will come through HTC’s hub for personalized content, known as BlinkFeed. BlinkFeed itself will be more colorful and will continue to present news, social media updates and other items of interest.
The new HTC One has a 4 megapixel rear camera, which is low for high-end smartphones. Instead, HTC focuses on making the individual pixel sensors larger, so that they can capture more light and offer better shots in low-light settings. The front camera, for selfies, is improved, though at 5 megapixels, compared with 2.1 megapixels before. Plus the features like being able to change the depth of your photo sounds really cool. I mean this camera is going to take amazing photos. The new phone also makes it easier to use the camera’s Zoe assistant, which takes several shots over a few seconds and lets you pick the best ones. It also lets you save frequently used combinations of manual settings, so that you don’t miss the shot trying to set it each time.
HTC BoomSound™ offers really big sound. Bring your music and movies to life with two stereo speakers cleverly placed on the front of the phone that combine with dedicated amplifiers to deliver clear, balanced, powerful sound.
HTC has given the user experience a stylish new overhaul with HTC Sense 6. It’s bolder, cleaner, and more colorful. Enhanced gesture recognition makes access to your phone faster and easier, and it allows you to interact with your phone in ways you never thought possible using Motion Launch™ gestures.
It will be offered at 199.00 for a buy one Get One Free (bogo) with a contract and using the edge program about 21.00 a month .
