It was Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile that lent their support for the HTC One model. Verizon has been the latest wireless service provider to join this list of providers adding its 4G services to the lineup. This means that now HTC One (codenamed M7 to signify the Verizon variant) would have support of all four major network service providers in the US. Talk about this had been going on for the past few weeks and finally fructified by the official confirmation coming from Verizon. The device is set for release this summer. The official confirmation from Verizon and re-confirmation by HTC has all been via their twitter accounts.
HTC One would be competing against the Galaxy S4, currently the Samsung flagship device running the latest Android Jelly Bean version. The main advantage that HTC One would hold over Samsung is its design and build. HTC One features an aluminum body which makes it more robust than the Galaxy S4 with its plastic makeup.
Other features or factors that would place the HTC One ahead of the Samsung device are its ability to take pictures with its camera in low light conditions as well. The primary rear facing camera which the HTC One comes with is based on the Ultrapixel technology. In this, the overall image size would be smaller though the sensor features larger pixels. This leads to better quality images even when the camera is just of 4 megapixel resolution.
As for the specs of the HTC One aka M7 include a Qualcomm quad core processor, a 2 GB RAM along with 32 GB of internal storage. Among the connectivity features that the HTC One comes with include Near Field Communication, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. For audio there are the two speakers which HTC One would have on top and below the display that are based on “BoomSound” technology.
