HTC Posts First Look At The One As T-Mobile Sends Out Press Release

As we continue to watch HTC breakdown the awesomeness that is their new One device, they’ve posted a brief “first look” video to their YouTube channel. Their live event finished just a few minutes ago, which means we can expect plenty of live hands-on content coming from our colleagues in the near future. Until then, take a brief look at the HTC One with this sixty-second clip and check out T-Mobile’s official press release announcing the One below.

With a sleek aluminum body, a live home screen that streams all of your favorite content, a photo gallery that comes to life, and dual frontal stereo speakers, the New HTC One is ready to reshape your smartphone experience.

    By the way was this on the Roadmap? probably launching on the 27th like the rest of the new phones … I’m assuming T-Mobile will launch LTE at Mobile World congress next week since all those devices are coming out on the 27th..

    • Khalints

      Their best bet is to release before the 14th…which is when Samsung will announce their GS4. Wouldn’t be wise for them to wait until their competitor announces their next flagship phone.

      • sidekicker89

        March is going to be a GREAT month for T-Mobile :)

  • Richard Yarrell

    Great device for Tmobile this does look great for all Htc fans. Tmobile won’t price it like everyone else thou. I predict 32gb 299 and 64gb 399 on tmobile.

    • Dion Mac

      Ummm… That would sound bout right if……. wait for it….. tmobile was still going to have…… wait for it….. subsided pricing!!!! Let me fix that for you… 32gb 549 and 64gb 649

      • Richard Yarrell

        I agree 100% with you.

        • squiddy20

          No you don’t. You’ve been saying all over the internet how it’ll be the price point you said above, and nothing else. You’re just “agreeing” with him because he’s “100%” right, and you’re 100% wrong. Again.

        • thepanttherlady

          Don’t start. This has gotten old and annoying.

    • galaxydude

      The htc one pisses on the galaxy note 2 what do you think Richard

      • tonkotsu

        The note 2 still beats it on battery life alone

        • techpro1993

          of course. Note 2 has such a dim screen that you can’t use it outdoor. Battery always lasts forever if you can’t use it. Get RAZR MAXX if you really need long battery life.

        • tonkotsu

          works fine for me

      • Joseph Lagalla

        The galaxy note really shouldn’t be compared to other phones. The stylus provides enough functionality to give a decent argument against any phone imo.

      • Richard Yarrell

        Pretty comical. You would’ve been right if it offered anything such as the Note 2. The Htc One is nothing more than a phone comparison to the Htc Dna, Lg Optimus G, Lg Nexus 4. Definitely not on the level of the Galaxy Note 2 not on it’s best day. Real users will compare the upcoming Lg Optimus G pro as well as the Galaxy Note 3 those are the real deal devices not this small 4.7 inch phone. Nice try thou.

        • galaxydude

          The LG Optimus G pro pisses on the Samsung note 2 don’t you think so Richard

  • sidekicker89

    Has anyone else noticed it doesn’t say “T-Mobile” anywhere on the phone?

    • Dion Mac

      THis is an HTC commercial, not tmbile,

      • sidekicker89

        yeah but even on T-Mobile’s official HTC One launch page.. I don’t see the T-Mobile logo anywhere

        • TechHog

          Does it matter?

        • tonkotsu

          Yes, because it shows us that htc has improved it’s carrier distribution model and had more leverage.

        • Dion Mac

          To piggyback on the article posted today, I think its weird that more on more phones are not having carrier names on it but the carrier still owns the phone(meaning you have to go thru them to get permission to unlock it and… they might not even do it lol)

        • tonkotsu

          which phones are those? (other than apple)

    • NYCTheBronx

      The T-Mobile LG Google Nexus 4 doesn’t have many T-Mobile logos. What do you think about that?

      • http://tmonews.com David

        That’s because this is a stock image, not a T-Mobile specific press image.

      • sidekicker89

        Well Nexus devices usually don’t have carrier logos, right?…

        • Dion Mac

          right

      • tonkotsu

        Is this a trick question? The nexus is a nexus. .

        • NYCTheBronx

          I don’t know. This is my first Nexus and I don’t even know of T-Mobile sold any other Nexus device. What I meant to say is that it doesn’t need to have a T-Mobile logo for it to be sold by T-Mobile.

        • Joseph Lagalla

          they sold the nexus one first and that had no logo. not trying to insult or anything, just provide the facts of nexii sold by t-mo.

  • ShoeVixen

    I’m so loving this! Can’t wait to see more….

  • http://twitter.com/m0h3gansun Nats

    no microsd and small battery really worries me with all the new features and processing power required for this new phone…hesistant…thinking about lg optimus g pro

    • TechHog

      When did 2300Ma/h become small for a 4.7 inch phone?

      • http://twitter.com/m0h3gansun Nats

        when LG optimus g pro is coming out with 3140mAh battery

        • TechHog

          LG Optimus G Pro is has a 5.5 inch screen. Pretty big difference. You do realize that the screen is the main battery drain for any and all phones, tablets, and laptops, right?

        • http://twitter.com/m0h3gansun Nats

          thanks you made my point 468dpi

        • TechHog

          You think that the PPI has as much of an effect on battery life as screen size? Really? I think my palm will have to be surgically removed from my face.

        • http://twitter.com/m0h3gansun Nats

          lol good luck buddy you mad bro? you need a hug?

        • Napster87

          in for the hugs

        • abc

          Why wouldn’t it? Pushing more pixels requires more processing power and more juice.

        • tonkotsu

          He doesn’t understand tech.

        • g2a5b0e

          TechHog is completely right. PPI doesn’t have as much of an effect on battery life as resolution. A 5″ device 1080p will actually drain a battery faster than a 4.7″ 1080p device. Why, you ask? The 4.7″ device has a higher PPI. It should CLEARLY drain the battery faster. No, incorrect. Both devices have the same exact number of pixels. The 5″ device will drain the battery faster because it has a larger screen & therefore needs more light to illuminate the screen to the same degree as the smaller device. Now, if two devices are the same size, but one is of a higher resolution, then the one with the higher resolution will definitely drain the battery faster, but the reason for that is the resolution. The PPI is just a result of the higher resolution. You guys all thumbed him down, but he knows exactly what he’s talking about.

        • NYCTheBronx

          Now I understand why my Samsung Galaxy Note doesn’t last as long as my Note II lol. It would die after 1-2 hours of constant use.

        • tonkotsu

          There’s a 5″ version with a 3000mah battery. Try again.

      • abc

        When Motorola Razr Maxx came out with a 3300 mAH battery on a 4.3 inch screen.

      • tonkotsu

        When it has a 1080 screen and a quad core processor ..and a camera that simultaneously records video as you’re taking pics

        • techpro1993

          Apparently you never read DNA battery test. Beat S3 in many categories even DNA has almost 2x brightness.

        • tonkotsu

          no one cares about what you say

        • techpro1993

          Thanks for replying.

    • tonkotsu

      The microsd doesn’t worry me much because there’s a 64gb storage option, but the battery is definitely a concern. Just when you thought that htc would push the envelope..

  • Whiskers

    Does it have a removable battery ?

    • rfgenerator

      non user replacable battery as is HTC’s current method of operation to make sure you don’t hold on to a phone more than 18 months.

      • Jose Hernandez

        Very well said.

  • chrisl08@yahoo.com

    Dammm nice phone too bad I canceled tmobile yesterday :s cuz service sucks in los Angeles like I and others have mentioned on here tmobile service is a mixed bag in LA u could have perfect hspa signal u walk dwn the wrong street u on edge .only thing im gonna miss is unlimited data in a way but not really cuz it wasnt worth it cuz I was on edge 75% of the time ..

  • BigMixxx

    this looks like a real segway for HTC. as long as they don’t deviate from the norm, like they did with the OTHER ONE series of phones…they might stay relevant.

    MIGHT. upstaged by Samsung probably next month. No real hype, except that the phone LOOKS nice.

    But what keeps me from buying a butterfly J?

    • Joseph Lagalla

      snapdragon 600, dual front speakers, htc tv, sense 5, better dpi to name a few. Other than that, the butterfly j has it all.

  • http://about.me/daylondeon Deacon

    features don’t impress me. i’m not a camera nerd so the slideshow was meh. what other features does it have beyond a live stream? i was waiting on this announcement to see if i’d stick with HTC or move to Sammy .. no SD card .. zero on features .. HTC is making this easy.

    • tonkotsu

      What features were you expecting?

      • http://about.me/daylondeon Deacon

        well they really didn’t announce any at all beyond the live stream and TV .. i can do that already.

    • Joseph Lagalla

      are you a tv person, because htc tv seems pretty interesting.

  • g2a5b0e

    Any word on whether the “htc” button in the middle is the multitasking button?

    • g2a5b0e

      I got my answer. The HTC logo in the middle isn’t a button at all. There is no dedicated multitasking button. You just double tap the home button.

      • tonkotsu

        Wish it would have some function

  • Napster87

    why I’m disappointed: Those navigation buttons are CRAP! why not on screen navigation? Also, does anyone know if that HTC logo performs a task when pressed?

    • g2a5b0e

      It’s not a button, just a logo.

  • MatthewMurawski

    Really digging the design, I just don’t like Sense.

  • 21stNow

    The battery capacity and screen size are not doing it for me. I didn’t think that it would be smaller than the DROID DNA.

    I’m not up on processors though. Is this processor “better” than the processor in the international One X (Nvidia Tegra 3)?

    • tonkotsu

      Significantly better. The tegra 3 is one of the most overrated processors ever

      • 21stNow

        Thanks! I was hoping that the new processor in the One is better than the international One X’s processor is. I’m seeing the limitations in a certain game that I play on the One X, especially since I have the Note II to compare it to.

        The DROID DNA is a beautiful phone, though I didn’t want to invest in that one at the time.

        • tonkotsu

          The new “one” phone’s processor is probably the best one on the market at the moment. I had a one x (international) and it suffered from poor battery life due to the tegra 3 and the screen. The tegra 3 was also surprisingly laggy in many modern games, and the ui stuttered even after the sense 4+ update, so I decided to switch. Went for a note 2 and never looked back. I’ll wait to see how this phone does in real world tests before I make a switch though.

  • Mr Tibs

    will apple be suing them for not putting a sd card slot or removable battery? LMAO….. good luck with this crap

  • 2dott0

    At least one phone manufacturer got the speakers right. If you are looking at a video the speakers should be facing you. Can’t believe it took this long to figure that out.

    • common sense

      I know… Right?! I remember a few feature phones with this years ago and never figured out why it didn’t stick… So stupid! I hope they keep it up before another 5 years go by lol

    • Bajamin

      The charger on the bottom drives me nuts also. I have to put it in my cup holder upside down, and besides on my desk at work/home I only charge the the phone in the car. Small thing but that drives me crazy.

  • John Chimento

    what song is that in the video omg please someone tell meee
