Article by: Raphael Labuguen – HTC has confirmed that it will focus on one smartphone only — the HTC One — its only Android flagship device this year.
According to Phil Roberson, head of HTC UK department, the company will offer just one flagship smartphone, and no multiple variants with different brand names, just the HTC One (M7) with the same features.
Speaking with Omio, HTC’s Robertson said that the HTC One is the “flagship device” and no S or V toned-down models will follow. He said, “last year we had the X and the S, where people had different personal preferences between the two.”
It’s worth noting that HTC will still release new smartphones this year, but with Windows Phone.
The HTC One will hit the market next month, and next quarter in the United States, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile will sell the handset on contract with Long Term Evolution.
HTC One features the new processor of Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 600, 2GB RAM, Android Jelly Bean with the new HTC Sense, 4MP Ultrapixel back-facing camera and tons of new software enhancements including the new homescreen called “BlinkFeed” and camera-phone feature called “Zoe.”
