    So we know it's getting unveiled on the 25th, but apparently it might actually be released just two weeks later.

    Apparently it'll be even more powerful than the S5, so it could technically be the best mobile on the market?

    As long as it supports MicroSD (which it surely will), I think I'm looking at my new phone.

    Is there any suggestion that it will support microSD? If not I wouldn't be so certain, the HTC One didn't after all (I know some regional variations and the One Max did) but most of HTC's recent flagships haven't. Plus I'm sure I read a while ago that HTC had reported finding that most of its customers didn't even use microSD cards (not sure how they'd know).

    Either way though, it'll probably be ace. If I actually planned to upgrade my phone this year it would probably be to that.

    @Stranded87

    Apparently so...

    Presuming this naughty kid has his hands on more or less the final build of the thing here.

    Not really paid attention to this phone as I was watching all the others. I do like the unibody construction of the previous HTC phones and this seems to be holding up nicely but that border around the screen seems huge.

    Also, from the look of it they've moved to on-screen buttons rather than physical or capacitive. Why then, does it still have the massive black border along the bottom where the buttons used to be ? Was it a last minute change ?

    I'm completely out of the loop on phones. Would this be a good upgrade from my Google Nexus 4?

    @jimnastics Well it's not been announced yet so nothing is 100% known about it, but based on the rumours and the fact that it's an HTC flagship yeah it would be, that is if you really feel the need to upgrade, I tend to think that upgrading every other year is preferable to every year, as the improvements you get one year on aren't always that massive.

    I can see that being popular between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

    Is this one of the best news that has emerged from the Android camp ... ever?

    HTC's new One will also come as a minimalist Google Play Edition

    : )

    You'll have to explain the significance of that to a simpleton...
    Does it mean it comes without lots of bloatware pre-installed? I thought it was the service providers that put a lot of that shit on, like the Vodafone crap I have on my phone that I never use but can't uninstall without hacking the phone, which is beyond my abilities.

    It means stock Android without the HTC UI or any other embellishments. So no bloatware, unless you consider the Google stuff to be bloatware.

    And 'hacking' a phone isn't usually that difficult, very often there's an application which can do it with a few clicks.

    The brushed (curved) metal aluminium the new HTC One has is the absolute best finish I have seen on a mobile phone!



    ... I have had my Lumia phone for over 16 months now and am very much thinking about going back to Android because the Marketplace is still quite poor, or you are waiting between six to twelve months for the 'popular' apps to make their way to Windows Phone 8.

    The dual camera (adds extra depth) sounds very intriguing!

    ... pretty, pretty good.



    Anyone thinking of picking up the new One (ho, ho, ho) when it is available?

    That's a pretty low res screen for a new phone...

    Since they didn't release last year's one in the UK, I don't expect it here. WTF not, HTC/Google? Sort this shit out.

    Getting mine on Thursday. 100 for the handset. Can't wait.

    Gone for in grey too, looks gorgeous. Shame about the pointless HTC logo strip on the front which does nothing but increase size.
