“New HTC One” March 1st reveal date confirmed officially by HTC

Screen Shot 2015-02-17 at 20.47.44We had a pretty good idea that this was the case, but just to be sure there was no doubt, HTC has just tweeted an image with the tagline “let them stare”. The tweet, posted by the company’s UK presence confirms that the new device is going to be revealed on March 1st.

The device is going to be announced at an event in Barcelona at around 4pm local time (10am Eastern/7am Pacific). And – best of all – we are going to be there.

We’re expecting a device with similar design influences to the previous two generations of all-metal HTC One smartphones. The big difference this year – if speculation is to be believe – is that we could see a 20MP rear camera instead of the unusual 4MP Ultra-Pixel or dual-lens make-up of the past two years.

If you haven’t already, be sure to take part in our poll. Are you more excited to see the Galaxy S6 arrive, or the HTC One M9? We’re fully expecting T-Mobile to carry both phones when they’ve launched in stores.

    Scumbag HTC trying to outshine Sammy on the same day. :P

    • Actually, Samsung was expected to have an event on March 2, but they moved it to March 1. Who’s stealing the thunder now? :P

      • jonathan3579

        I’ve pointed it out before and people seem to forget that this is business as usual for Samsung. It’s pretty scummy but whatever.

        • Jerry Rich

          I guess if you keep pointing it you might find someone who really cares.

        • jonathan3579

          Not interested in that but thanks for the recommendation, dick.

      • gmo8492

        It was a joke bruh.

      • superg05

        Samsung’s is every march 1st the first day of mobile world congress

  • JoeMail

    I dont get why these companies race to increase megapixels on the cameras!
    I love my note 4 and i love it, but the camera on my iphone 5s was way better with less MP.
    it’s a do more with less things when it comes to these cameras. at least on the iphone you can still send a nice picture over imessage…good luck sending a nice 20MP image via SMS. Jeez!!!

    • g2a5b0e

      The camera on the 5s is better than that of the Note 4? I couldn’t even take you seriously after.

      • Mike Palomba

        I believe he means that the Iphone camera software and UI is better on the iPhone then the note 4. My phone is an iPhone but I’ve used an LG G2, G3, Samsung GS4, GS5, and a Note 4 and the iPhone has the best camera software hands down. It also makes it easier to snap a clear picture extremely quickly.

        • Cam Bunton

          Precisely. I’d agree. It takes more time and effort to achieve better results with other devices. Lumia 930 (for instance) takes the best still photos I’ve seen on a mobile device, but I can’t get the results by just pointing and shooting in auto-mode.

        • g2a5b0e

          Camera software & UI is one thing, but still very subjective regardless, but when it comes to the technical details of the camera, there is no comparison.

      • JoeMail

        it’s doing more with less, weather it’s via software or UI. I personally dont need a 20MP image on my phone. how many of us really need those poster size images in our sd space? 90% of the time never leave your phone/facebook/instagram which butcher the image anyway.

        So yes, do more with less. I love the note 4..dont get me wrong, but these android phones really need to focus on improving software. Half the time i cant fire up the quick shot from the lock screen on my note 4 which is laggy and camera takes a significant amount of time to load up by todays standards.

        • g2a5b0e

          Perhaps yours is laggy. Mine is not. Technology marches on. You may not need a 20MP image on your phone, but some people will. Besides, you know very well that you can decrease the megapixels for your pics, so you have the option to take lower res shots if you’d like to. Throws that bunk argument out the window. For those with a 5s looking to take higher res shots, there is no such option. I like the software just fine. Then again, I’m of a “I’d rather have it & not need it than need it & not have it” mentality. If you’re not into having everything but the kitchen sink, then perhaps you chose the wrong phone. An iPhone sounds like it would be more up your alley.

    • superg05

      there this thing called email its a universal standard not property like imessage only dren

    • Mike Palomba

      I agree

  • Deadeye37

    With that picture, I wonder if they’re going to put some emphasis on macro photography….

  • So excited! I didn’t get the M8, but I wanted it. But I loved my HTC One M7. Really loved the camera, speaker phone, design, call quality. It was near perfect to me. I was kind of stupid to switch to the Moto X (1st gen) from it. I’m ready to go back to HTC. Heck, I would buy a HTC One M7 (Blue) from Best Buy for a temp phone between smartphones if I didn’t have to go through the unlocking process, and knew what if it had compatible 4G LTE Bands were. Which it was just available unlocked in Blue to use on T-Mobile. But I’m definitely buying a HTC One M9, at least I’m 90% sure depending on what the ASUS ZenFone 2 turns out to be, and if Saygus v2 turns out to be real.

  • Bryan Pizzuti

    Oh look, it’s the New New One, Even newer than the New One, which was newer than the One, and better than the Old One. It’s Smaller than the Big One, Bigger than the Little One, And Pluser than the Plus One, which is the Other One. I might get two. :)

    • Marvin Arnold

      Amen, brother

    • John Johnson

      Just like my Impala. Older than the New Impala, but newer than the Old Impala.

      Cars having the same model name throughout the years doesn’t seem to have ruined any car companies, and I would hazard to guess people got used to it.

      Not quite sure why it seems to be a problem for some mobile device technology fans…

  • Mike

    HTC needs to give their phones some branding identity. Which One is it? LMAO

  • captainbuck

    for us americans not in the military that’s 3/1/15 lol. just pointing it out to those who feel confused.
