HTC Announces One Series Smartphones at MWC


The MWC has begun and with more phones than you can shake a stick at it can be hard to keep track of all the new phones the manufactures are trying to tempt us with and HTC have kicked off their show with an impressive new range of phones. With so many competing to be the new smartphone of choice HTC have chucked in a few new incentives for their customers including Dropbox cloud storage giving users up to 25GB of storage space for two years after buying one of their selected devices.


HTC has showcased their latest range of phones at the MWC, the One Series smartphones will all have optimised Beats audio along with improved video and photo features.


The HTC One X is the quad-core flagship handset debuted by the Taiwanese manufacturer at the conference and this handset really displays the company’s new focus on releasing quality handsets. The phone is packing a massive 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 display and the beefy NVIDIA Tegra 3 SoC with 4Plus1 processors on board as well as 1GB RAM. The latest HTC Sense 4.0 UI works with the latest Android 4.0 OS bringing slick new features and improved usability.



The camera is packing an 8-megapixel resolution and captures 1080p full HD video and there is a “Double Shutter” function that allows you to take photos whilst recording video without interrupting the video recording. HTC has worked hard on the design of the phone making the chassis from one piece of polycarbonate plastic, as seen on the Nokia Lumia models, and the screen edges have been tapered.


The next handset in the One series is the HTC One S, sitting just below the One X as a mid-range phone this handset includes a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display. The phone also runs Android ICS and the latest Sense UI and an 8-megapixel snapper.



The handset has the same unibody design as the One X but the casing has been made from aluminum using a process that bakes it in plasma transforming it into a super-hard ceramic that looks fantastic. This is the slimmest of the new phones from HTC measuring only 7.6mm making it one the skinniest Android phones out there.


Rounding up the collection of new phones is the entry-level One V with a 3.7-inch LCD display and HTC Sense 3.6. There is a standard Qualcomm chip on board and 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal memory and with no microSD card slot the space is limiting. However as with the other phones there is up to 25GB of Dropbox storage provided free for the first two years of owning the handset.


The design is a very familiar HTC look and there is Beats Audio sound enhancement so music lovers will enjoy this feature.


No doubt the One X is the one to watch for the best smartphone of 2012 title as it will stand up to contenders such as the Nokia Lumia 900 and the Sony Xperia S, but as HTC do so well they manage to cater for everyone giving good quality from top spec to the budget end of the market and the new One series is no exception.
