We have seen some great devices coming from Barcelona today, but HTC has definitely blown up the stage. Taiwan’s manufacturer has just announced its HTC One series of smartphones, displaying the top-of-the-line mobile technology HTC has been promising since last year.
The HTC One S,X and V boast some impressive specs, including quad-core processors, Android 4.0 and HTC Sense 4.0. But what HTC is focusing on is media. These devices are boasted to be optimized for amazing music and camera performance.
The camera is quite impressive. HTC is using what they call “ImageSense” to improve the shooter’s performance. The camera is able to take a picture in just 0.7 seconds, with a 1.2 second auto-focus lag. The camera app interface is also simpler, as HTC has made it unnecessary to switch modes while shooting, and the app has a faster burst-shot experience.
The camera is also suppossed to work great under low-light conditions, but we have already seen HTC work on this. Past devices, like the HTC Amaze, have ISO options, allowing you to play with the “film’s” sensitivity.
We have also seen HTC work with Beats, so it is not surprising to see it moving towards the entertainment route. All of this is also optimized by HTC Sense 4.0, which has been stripped down and made simple to improve speed and performance.
Beats Audio is also more deeply integrated. Now, any music or game app can take advantage of Beats software to enhance audio, instead of being exclusive to HTC’s music player. And if all of this was not enough, HTC has also partnered with Dropbox to give 25 free GB of cloud storage for two years, to anyone who purchases an HTC One phone.
More details to come as soon as we get our hands all over these bad boys. Stay tuned for more specific details on the devices, as well as HTC services.
