HTC says ‘the best is about to get better’ as it sends invitations to March 25 event

htceventaam

The follow-up to the HTC One has been leaking left and right lately, and while that’s all well and good, I’m sure that most of us just want to see the thing made official. Thankfully it looks like that announcement isn’t far off.

HTC just announced that it’s holding an event on March 25, teasing that “the best is about to get better.” While the Taiwanese firm didn’t come out and straight up say that the successor to its flagship One will be shown at the event, it seems likely that that’s what HTC has in store for us. Not only are we nearing the OG One’s first birthday, but HTC Chairwoman Cher Wang recently teased that the company would soon be sending invitations to an event at which the follow-up to the One would be shown.

The next version of the flagship HTC One is expected to feature a design similar to its older sibling. However, the new device will reportedly sport a beefier spec list that includes a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, two rear cameras and a set of on-screen navigation buttons. Sounds to me like a respectable set of specs for a 2014 Android flagship.

Are you looking forward to the arrival of the successor to the HTC One? Which rumored feature are you most excited about?

    Anyone no the start time? Hopefully will be streamed live?

    March 25 announcement is WE FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY, NEWBS! NOW GTFO!!!!

    The best?? I dont see anything available on this phone that you can’t get anywhere else. What makes it the best? The Note 3 has a ton of features thatvthis phone dosent same with the moto x, or the g flex. These phones offer sonething different. Same specs a a nexus 5. I was hoping for something a little more powerful. What about the finger print scanner that allows you to launch dufferent apps with each finger, that would be new, but know more of the same

    • Subx

      It already exists on the One Max!
      Please remember, all these specs are just rumours! Ni one knows what it will end up having.
      This is why I hate, hate , HATE these rumours.People make firm judgements and turn the other way before the product is even released!

      But lest think about this for a minute. The rumours is that it will have an SD 800 with 2GB of RAM. We all know now that Kit Kat is designed to run better on a lower spec device that what Jelly Bean runs on a higher spec device. So, why go much higher and use valuable battery power when we can get better results?

      Eh, why put a V8 in your car if you can put in a V6 than can produce the same power yes use less petrol? That is just an example comparison by the way. Just to highlight my point.

  • jamal adam

    Yup, I’ve saved the date and am now even more excited than ever because we finally know when we will feast our eyes. The excitement is strong in this one.

  • crnkoj

    whats the point of releasing a phone that has yesteryears specs? All the specs apart from the dual cameras and dual speakers are the same or worser compared to the lg g2 for instance. Not to speak of the fact that they kept the obnoxious bezel with the htc logo on the bottom part of the screen, taking up 1cm for nothing, while they have put the buttons onscreen….

    • surethom

      Who says the photos we have seen are the final design??? I agree the bottom bezel looks massive, but This may NOT be the final design.

      Yesterdays specs, are you for real.

      • crnkoj

        well yes, the lg g2 is out for about 6 months with those specs, so are several others – note3, z1/z1 compact, etc (same cpu, same/more ram, same/bigger display with less bezels), not to say that its not a real step up from the snap 600, 2gb ram and the 1080p 4.7″ display the old one has already.
        Sure hope the obnoxious bezel with htc logo wont be in the latest design…

      • Steve Brown

        Yes these are the exact same specs as phones released in September. The nexus 5, the Note 3, the G2, the z1 all are phones from yesterday that have the exact same specs as this phone that’s not even out yet.

    • Steve

      That’s what I say, but I guess htc fanboys are ok with a brand new phone, with specs from 6 months ago. Nothing brand new, what’s the point?

    So far away :/

    While I’m sure it’s what you like best, its one of the annoying Android things to me. Have has a Nexus 5 (with many gkitches) for less than 2 months and between HTC, Samsung, I already feel a better phone is around the corner. This will get voted down but may look forward to getting an iPhone and not having to pay attention to all this stuff. Free up my time, get my yearly updates & a new device every 2 years like clockwork… Just let Swiftkey in with your 4.7 screen

  • otechguide mobile solution

    well, i love the htc device alot. technology changes overtime and that is how mobile co-porations all changes their competition rates. However, they have a better plan ahead of their next meeting for what to do next regarding the htc.

  • Steve

    The best?? Until the S5 comes out. 16mp camera. Rumors of a octa core processor, with minimum 800 snapdragon running at 2.5ghz. An extra gig of ram. no on screen buttons, a sd card slot, a removable battery. Waterproof and dust proff. A bigger battery, bigger screen. Better support from forums. Better security eventhough knox can go to hell. And to top it off, eventhough htc said they would do it, a finger print scanner that will launch different apps with each finger. The 5s is going to be a premium material, so why sould I pick Htc. Can’t be because of updates, Htc is the worst and won’t support anything but the One, max, and mini
