The HTC One is an Android smartphone set to be released by HTC on April 4, 2013 for pre-orders, and widely released on April 17, 2013 . Serving as a successor to the One X, emphasis has been placed by HTC on its hardware and software design, along with its unique camera implementation.


The HTC One uses an all-aluminum frame with an antenna built into its backing; intended to give the device a premium feel in comparison to smartphones made with a plastic shell. The frame itself takes at least 200 minutes to manufacture. Internally, the device includes a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 4.7 inch 1080p Super LCD 3 display with 468 ppi, and either 32 or 64 GB of internal, non-expandable storage. The HTC One will also support LTE where available. The HTC One's camera includes an "UltraPixel" image sensor, which uses larger pixels. The use of larger pixels improves overall image quality, especially in low-light environments.

The HTC One ships with Android 4.1.2, using HTC's Sense user experience. The new version of Sense on the One, version 5, uses a new minimalist visual style with a redesigned home screen: the signature flip clock widget from previous HTC phones has been replaced by a simple digital clock and weather display. Hundreds of different clock designs by HTC's designers, narrowed down to 25, were considered before the final design was chosen for the new default clock and weather widget on Sense 5. Directly below the clock on the default home screen is a new scrolling news aggregator known as "BlinkFeed", which in a similar fashion to Flipboard and Windows Phone's live tiles, displays a scrolling grid of news headlines and social network content. New content is synchronized every two hours when connected to a mobile network, but more frequently while on Wi-Fi.
