All new HTC One sell sheet reveals new hardware and software details


With over 50 articles on the all new HTC One (M8) in our archives, you’d think that all the phones mysteries would have been revealed by now. The all new HTC One brochure leak we posted this morning revealed what the phone’s Duo Camera is capable of, but a new sell sheet has pulled back the curtain a bit more, revealing other hardware and software features that we’re not yet been privy to.

The all new HTC One will reportedly be powered by a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 rather than the previously-rumored Snapdragon 800 chip. The documentation confirms a 5-inch 1080 display, 16GB of internal storage (10GB accessible to users) with a microSD card slot, nanoSIM slot, 5 megapixel front-facing camera and 2,600 mAh battery, all tucked inside an aluminum body that measures 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35mm and weighs in at 160 grams. The 1/3.0-inch, f/2.0 aperture, 2µm pixel size UltraPixel camera tech from last year’s HTC One is back, but we’ll have to wait for another rumor or leak to give us an indication of how many megapixels the all new HTC One will have.

The sell sheet doesn’t reveal many details about HTC Sense 6 and the software loaded on the new One, but it does indicate that users will be able to wake the device with a simple swipe that will take them to their favorite apps or BlinkFeed. This software feature will be accompanied by the double-tap to wake functionality that we learned about earlier today.

All new HTC one specs

  • Screen: 5-inch 1080p
  • CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, 2.3GHz
  • Storage: 16GB (10GB available),  microSD
  • Battery: 2,600mAh
  • Cameras: “UltraPixel” 1/3.0-inch, f/2.0 aperture, 2µm pixel size, 1080p video capture
  • Front camera: 5 megapixels
  • Dimensions: 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35mm
  • Weight: 160 grams
  • SIM: nanoSIM

The all new HTC One’s processor will be clocked slower than the one found inside of the Samsung Galaxy S5, but benchmark numbers show that HTC’s device is already one step ahead of the class. If it can find a way to optimize the phone’s 2,600mAh battery, HTC may have a best-in-class device on its hands.

    Hating the 16 GB internal storage (10 GB user available) Where do I am supposed to install all of my many 2GB Gameloft games now? Thats what I loved from HTC One X and One, always had 32 GB internal. Micro SD means nothing to this… its just a place to place bulk media files.

    • riz

      There are 32gb 64gb variants so no problem

      • steve

        It’s just for 900 bucks, you should get 32gb anyway

  • jamal adam

    I’m just hoping that the 2600mAh battery doesn’t underwhelm and disappoint like the OG One’s battery. Also, I assume that a 32GB and 64GB options will be available on launch day as that would be perfect.

    • riz

      I hope so but I’m definitely going for this one rather then s5 can’t be holding plastic anymore at a premium price. S5 sell probably lag and TW is ugly however will outsell HTC but not as much as last year.

    • Jimmy_Jo

      32GB will not be available at launch. They always screw this up and the 64GB will either only be available from HTC directly or it will be some bogus carrier exclusive. Like only from Verizon for $500 on contract.

  • namesib

    So, like the S4, it looks similar to its predecessor (to an even greater extent) and, like the S4, a significant amount of its internal storage is already occupied. I have a strong feeling these won’t be seen as major negatives, however. Hypocrites.

    • redraider133

      That is because it is HTC and not samsung. They do not seem to be under the same scrutiny as HTC is and these all will be over looked, while they bash samsung for similar things.

      • steve

        You’re absolutely right. Same people that are praising this unimproved m8 are the same ones bashing the S5 for offering nothing new. But the S5 is waterproof and gas a finger scanner atleast

  • redraider133

    Why do these companies think that just because they add an SD slot 16gb is ok? This is a step backwards from the 32gb standard model that HTC had last year. I would take 32gb with no SD slot over a 16gb with an SD slot any day. Especially with most apps being unable or function properly when moved to SD card. Come on HTC you had a chance to hit one out of the park and once again there is one or two specs they overlooked. Nice to see a battery size increase, but hope that it is large enough to not have issues like the original one had in the battery department.

    • steve

      To get it absolutely right, 32 gb, and 6th with an sd slot. Can you get it Right htc or are you waiting till next year?

    • deke218

      Considering with Kit Kat 4.4, 3rd party apps can no longer access the SD card, that 16 GB is going to used up rather quickly.

    • Steve Barry

      Is the battery in this removeable at all? That’s the one thing I liked about Samsung phones, they had both a removeable battery AND microSD. Everything about this phone sounds awesome, I just hope I could put an extended battery in it.

      I use my phone all the time, so spending $35 on a bigger battery pays it’s dividends in spades.

  • renyo

    I guess the only leak left is that of the CEO, giving a practice speech, revealing the all new HTC One!

    • masterpfa

      He’s probably orchestrating all these leaks personally

  • donger

    Good specs.

  • ZombieSix


    • sere83

      Yeah I agree. The Xiaomi M3 comes in 64gb, if you need 4G then can wait until april for the updated M3S, which may be snapdragon 801 too.

  • steve

    Amazing reading the reviews. Samsung is worst because they are offering more. 16 gb? It was minimum 32 gb 6 months ago in the Note 3. Bigger battery in Samsung and you can change battery. 2.3 ghz?? Same as the 800 snapdragon and the 801 is reported worst for battery life. This new m8 isn’t even waterproof and it has know improvements what so ever, but go on hating Samsung because they do the same things like cheat on benchmark tests.

  • riz

    Great looking phone with good specs. Best and most polished ui, lag free unlike TW. I’ve owned S4,S3 Note 3 previously was disappointed. No more plastic for my hard earned cash going back to premium build. It’s either this or Xperia Z2.

    • steve

      Funny you kept on buying them then

      • masterpfa

        Very true, lol. But at least he is talking from experience as opposed to the usual anti Samsungnites we often hear from.

  • Master

    DUAL BAND must install in The new Htc one m8 and IP67 rather than fingerprint scanner
