HTC is days away from unveiling its next flagship smartphone. The All New HTC One is expected to make its official debut during a press conference in New York City on March 25, and we already have a pretty decent idea of what to expect. In fact, nearly all of the specs have already been revealed, and dozens of leaked photos have already showed us the exterior. While leaks are one thing, official certification in another beast entirely. The phone recently passed through China’s TENAA where it was certified for use in China, and the certification again revealed the specs.
The documents show that the All New HTC One will launch with a quad-core processor clocked at 2.26GHz, likely a Snapdragon 801 chip, 2GB of RAM, support for adding microSD cards – something the original HTC One lacked – and a 5-inch display with a 1080p resolution. Additionally, the device will run Android 4.4.2 KitKat, though we think HTC’s Sense 6 UI will add even more improvements that aren’t discussed here. The TENAA certification doesn’t discuss the dual-camera setup on the back, though we still believe it will be used to auto-focus images after they have been captured.
The TENAA also published images from the Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center MIIT, which again show us the design of the phone. As expected, it lines up with what we’ve already seen in the past. You’ll note the China Mobile logo, however, pointing to a launch on the world’s largest wireless carrier. We can’t wait for March 25 when we’ll finally get to see this phone in person.
