HTC unveils new model One

HTC have today unveiled their new HTC One (M8), the next generation of its multi-award winning phone. The new model, built from a single piece of aluminium is available in Gunmetal Gray, Glacial Silver or Amber Gold.

Sporting a 5" screen, the One now includes Motion Launch which employs an array of sensors, which automatically detect the moment you pick up the phone, enabling you to wake up the screen or unlock it and move straight to common functions with a simple swipe or double-tap. If the phone rings you only have to put it to your ear to answer the call, without touching the screen.

Also from the press release:

"HTC's Sense 6 software experience brings the beautiful exterior design of the HTC One (M8) to the inside, using colour themes to clearly show different categories of applications such as productivity, messaging and entertainment, allowing you to move from work to play with ease. HTC BlinkFeed has been super-charged with more news sources and social feeds to choose from, so whether you're interested in the latest celebrity news, movies and shopping or simply want to see all your friends updates at a glance, HTC BlinkFeed will deliver your content in one easy-to-read, fluid feed direct to your home screen.

With the HTC One (M8), stunning images are just a snap away, thanks to HTC's new Duo Camera, featuring HTC's UltraPixel sensor which allows you to capture stunning images in any light and apply a range of creative effects to mimic the results usually reserved for professional equipment.

Portraits will also never be the same again, with new innovations like UFocus which selectively blurs different parts of the image, making the subject stand out in a beautiful, natural way and Foregrounder, which applies a range of creative filters to the background. Dimension Plus is another feature that has been designed to give your pictures an almost-3D-like quality, allowing you to view them from a different angle, simply by tilting the screen. Alternatively, give your images a more seasonal theme with Seasons animations or bring friends and loved-ones together into the same image with Copy & Paste. All these features combine to unleash your creativity in a way never-before seen on a mobile phone.

An intelligent, dual-colour flash ensures that images taken in more challenging conditions are also well-lit with natural skin tones, whilst a wide-angle, 5 Megapixel front-facing camera takes perfect selfies every time.

Finally, for those who want to experience their music, movies and games in crystal-clear, high-definition audio, HTC BoomSound just got bigger, with dual-frontal speakers and advanced sound engineering that makes the HTC One (M8) 25% louder than the HTC One (M7) whilst, at the same time, boosting the quality and clarity of every note and voice."

The HTC One is on sale now at selected outlets.
