The All New HTC One sees its full specs leaked
Earlier today a leaked brochure from an Australian carrier told us how much the all new HTC One will cost, as well as what the twin-sensor camera will be marketed as (it’s HTC Duo, by the way). We also found out that it will sport a 5-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, something that has been leaked many times so far.
Yet despite the all new HTC One having had at least a leak or two each week for a few months now (and more like one or two per day this year), we’ve never seen a full list of its specs coming from a reasonably plausible source. Until this moment, that is.
GSM Arena got sent a sales guide for the all new HTC One, accompanied by said full spec list. Finally! So, without further ado, here’s what you should expect in terms of hardware features from this handset.
It will have a 5-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, an UltraPixel HTC Duo rear camera with dual-LED flash and 1080p Full HD video recording, a 5 MP front camera with improved selfie support, a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor (MSM8974AB), 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage (of which 10 GB will be user-accessible), microSD card support, a nano SIM, barometer, IR blaster, 150 Mbps 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2,600 mAh battery. It’s expected to run Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC Sense 6 on top. Its dimensios are going to be 146.36×70.6×9.35 mm, and it will weigh 160 grams.
The exact resolution of the camera is still unknown, but all of its details have been leaked and judging from them it could very well be a 4 MP unit just like the one in the original One. It will sport 1/3.0″ size, f/2.0 aperture, and 2µm pixel size. If this is the case, it’s a bit funny that the all new One will have a higher-res front camera than its rear camera – not something often seen in the mobile world, if ever. Speaking of the front camera, this will be adept at shooting selfies, with some dedicated stuff for those.
The processor is identical to the one in the Sony Xperia Z2, but it falls short compared to what’s in the Samsung Galaxy S5, which seems to have secured an exclusive supply of the highest clocked part ever made by Qualcomm. The battery capacity is lower than what there is in both of the all new One’s main competitors, which isn’t really different from what happened last year. Oh, and the new One is also going to be thicker than the Galaxy S5 and Xperia Z2. On the other hand, it’s the only one of the three to sport an all-metal design, so there’s that.
HTC should really have announced this thing already. At the rate the leaks are going, we’ll be very bored with the all new One even before it gets official.
