HTC unveils their 2013 Android flagship smartphone - The HTC One

HTC, earlier, announced their newest Android flagship smartphone, the HTC One. No, I won't say anything against the design of the phone, because I think it is brilliant. This is a company struggling for market share but is still up there with the best of the Android phonemakers. The HTC One, packs a lot of new features, take for example the 4MP rear facing camera. Dubbed as UltraPixels, is better understood if you read on SlashGear's explanation of it. Other things in the HTC One includes BlinkFeed which is the new look for HTCs. Most, if not all, Android smartphones have homescreens that you swipe left to right to go to the next screen. With BlinkFeed, it's up and down. Imagine Windows Phone and yes, the "tiles" are live.

The HTC One is expected to become available in the US by March via Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile. These are the carriers, so far, that has been confirmed to carry the device.
