What should make the All New One a great mobile music player is the BoomSound technology used for its speakers. As you may have heard, HTC already confirmed that the upcoming smartphone would have BoomSound speakers.
A new on-device video of the software inside the All New HTC One reveals details about Sense 6.0 UI, the upcoming update to the skin that comes pre-installed on Android 4.4.2.
While the video uncovers the fact that Sense 6.0 will look remarkably similar to those running the previous version, there are a few things that set it apart. Aside from the on-screen navigation buttons and slightly flatter icons, the new device will support interaction when the screen is off. Under a section called Motion Gestures, the video displays five built-in swipe or touch solutions.

HTC has just released a New teaser on its YouTube channel named "HTC One - Best Smartphone of 2013", The teaser shows that the previous HTC One was awarded the Best Smartphone of 2013 and it will get even better on March,25.
The video didn't show any extra info as previous technical translations video series but it's a heads-up for what's coming the day after tomorrow. check out the video below.

It also gives a good look at the software and some of the features such as the double tap or swipe to unlock feature, the extreme power saving feature and the new camera app with the after focus feature. You can watch the video below (German).
Today, Just 6 Hours away from Official announcement, a YouTube tech channel posted a lengthy comparison between the original HTC One (M7) and the All New HTC One 2014 (M8).
The video doesn't mention something that we don't know already. It gives a very detailed look at the upcoming phone and compares it in detail to its older brother. Check out the full video below.
HTC is following in the footsteps of Google and released its custom Android launched for FREE download from the Play Store. Along with the BlinkFeed launcher, the company also put out SenseTV and HTC Service Pack. So that when HTC wants to update these Apps, it can be done faster than releaseing a hotfix for the whole firmware Over the Air (OTA).
BlinkFeed was first to put a magazine-like UI on the homescreen, something that Samsung has added to its latest TouchWiz incarnations. The launcher features the same functionality as the native launcher on HTC phones, including showing upcoming calendar events, along with social updates and news, and offline reading mode to save on data usage.
The BlinkFeed launcher is available for free download from the Play Store, but it seems to have limited availability (probably a regional restriction).
HTC SenseTV displays the TV schedule with additional info for each show, including scores and stats for sports games. If your device has an IR blaster, the app will also control TV, set top box and home theater setup.
The purpose of HTC Service Pack is less clear, apparently it's a "support service update that combines previously released updates and helps make your HTC experience more reliable". Probably will inform the user with upcoming updates status for his HTC device firmware.
The All New HTC One 2014 Unveiling Event has just started, HTC provides Live Streaming of the whole event starts now. Keep your eyes on our homepage for more updates, specs, photos and more about the All New HTC One (2014).

Finally, The HTC One (M8) is now Official. The smartphone sports a unibody made of 90% metal as opposed to 70% for its predecessor giving it an even sleeker look.
The One (M8) screen is 5", while retaining the 1080p resolution. Side bezels have been slimmed down and hardware keys have been replaced by on-screen ones so the difference in size compared to the original One is minial.
The front-facing BoomSound stereo speakers that we so enjoyed on the original One are back for another round with the M8. This year's HTC flagship is said to be 25% louder, too.
As far as processing power goes, the HTC One (M8) offers a Snapdragon 801 chipset with a 2.3 GHz Krait 400 processor, Adreno 330 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. The storage options are 16 GB and 32 GB but the M8 will allow expansion by up to 128 GB through the microSD card slot.
The Android version is 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6 on top. One of the coolest new features brought by the updated package is Motion Launch, which lets you quickly open the camera or unlock the phone while the screen is off. Picking up the One (M8) in landscape mode and pressing the volume button will launch the camera. There's double tap or slide up from the bottom to wake the phone. While locked you can pick up the phone in portrait mode and swipe left on its screen to launch the widget panel or right for BlinkFeed.
A newly introduced extreme Power Saving Mode promises to give you up to 30 hours of running by using just 10% of the One (M8)'s 2,600 mAh battery. Zoe has also been updated and can take 20 full-res stills coupled with video in just three seconds. The Sense 6 launcher itself has been moved to the Play Store in an attempt to streamline the update process.
The camera department of the HTC One (M8) features a 4MP camera with 1/3" sensor, 2 micron-sized pixels and f/2.0 aperture plus a second camera located above it meant to gather depth information. HTC calls this Duo Camera. It mimics the stereoscopic abilities of the human eye - two independent lenses able to calculate the relative distance of the subjects in an image. HTC's dual camera setup enables cool effects such as selective focus (shallow depth of field) and post-shot refocusing.
The front-facing camera is a wide-angle 5 MP unit making it a huge jump from last year's 2.1 MP.
Sadly, the optical image stabilization of the original One is now gone, and the One (M8) will rely solely on digital stabilization to do its magic. Similarly to Apple, HTC has improved the flash of the smartphone by using a two toned one - one cold and one warm LED, which can help the smartphone produce more accurate color tones in low-light conditions. HTC also claims the One (M8) can focus in just 0.3s.
HTC has just released the first official promo video of the HTC One M8 on its YouTube channel. The video highlights the all metal design and sophisticated camera design and you can watch it below.
