HTC's One smartphone was announced before MWC kicked off, but we managed to spend some time with the company's flagship device here in Barcelona. Featuring 2GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU, the One is HTC's hope to get business back on track. The One also has a 4.7" display with a 1920x1080 pixel resolution (468ppi) and is expected in mid-March for a price between 670-680 euros off contract.
HTC has taken great lengths in engineering the smartphone, and their efforts definitely show. The unibody aluminum housing is a pleasure to hold, and the full-HD display and Beats Audio add to its appeal. The device also comes in at just 143 grams and 9.3 mm, further enhancing the HTC One's refined feel.
We were able to get a closer look at the smartphone, and we filmed our thoughts in the video below. The audio is in German, but the Sense UI is appreciable nonetheless, and HTC's continuous shooting mode is showed off at around the 2:40 mark.
