Key HTC One details emerge Featured

HTC's last flagship smartphone was a real winner and if the reported specs of its successor are anything to go by it looks like the Taiwanese company's next effort could be right up there too.

Details leaked by GSMArena have said the next-generation HTC One will be sporting a 5-inch, 1080p screen, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, along with a meaty 2600mAh battery and two rear cameras. Yep, two.

Leaked promotional material from Telstra (below) seems to hint that the HTC One ‘Duo Camera’ may play an important part in improving low light shooting.

Various online reports are suggesting that photos from both cameras may be combined to create a better result using software similar to HDR. The camera may also allow users to add 3D effects, as well as choose where to focus and even soften the background after the picture has been taken.

Like its predecessor the phone will also come equipped with two front-facing speakers and give the phone 'Boomsound', while the front-facing camera will reportedly be 5-megapixels.

The phone will also reportedly feature Motion Launch, a new bit of software that will l let you answer a call by just holding the phone straight to your ear when it rings.

A Barometer is also said to be on board, no FM Radio.

The new HTC One is expected to be announced in a few months time and will go head-to-head with Samsung's Galaxy S5 and Sony's Xperia Z2. For more info check out the GSMArena report here.

Meanwhile HTC also today released a video explaining its Ultrapixel technology, which the next HTC One is expected to feature. Check it out below.
