LONDON and NEW YORK, Feb. 19, 2013

LONDON and NEW YORK, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --HTC Corporation, a global
leader in mobile innovation and design, today announced its new flagship
smartphone, the new HTC One. Crafted with a distinct zero-gap aluminum
unibody, the new HTC One introduces HTC BlinkFeed, HTC Zoe and HTC BoomSound,
key new HTC Sense^® innovations  that reinvent the mobile experience and set a
new standard for smartphones.


"People today immerse themselves in a constant stream of updates, news and
information. Although smartphones are one of the main ways we stay in touch
with the people and information we care about, conventional designs have
failed to keep pace with how people are actually using them," said Peter Chou,
CEO of HTC Corporation. "A new, exciting approach to the smartphone is needed,
and with the new HTC One, we have reimagined the mobile experience from the
ground up to reflect this new reality."

HTC BlinkFeed: A Personal Live Stream Right on the Home Screen
At the center of the new HTC One experience is HTC BlinkFeed. HTC BlinkFeed is
a bold new experience that transforms the home screen into a single live
stream of personally relevant information such as social updates,
entertainment and lifestyle updates, news, and photos with immersive images so
that people no longer need to go to separate applications to find out what's
happening. HTC BlinkFeed aggregates the freshest content from the most
relevant and interesting sources, giving it to people at a glance, all in one
place, without the need to jump between multiple applications and websites.

To enable this new dynamic approach to the smartphone, HTC will provide both
local and global content from more than 1,400 media sources with more than
10,000 articles per day from some of the most innovative media companies, such
as the AOL family of media properties, ESPN, MTV, Vice Media, Cool Hunting,
Reuters and many others. For more information on HTC BlinkFeed's content
partners, visit the HTC Blog.

HTC UltraPixel Camera With HTC Zoe
The breakthrough HTC UltraPixel Camera redefines how people capture, relive
and share their most precious moments. HTC Zoe gives people the ability to
shoot high-resolution photos that come to life in three-second snippets. These
Zoes, photos and videos are then displayed in a unique way that brings the
gallery to life and transforms the traditional photo gallery of still images
into a motion gallery of memories. It also automatically creates integrated
highlight films from each event composed of Zoes, photos and videos set to
music with professionally designed cuts, transitions and effects. These
highlight videos can be remixed or set to different themes and can be easily
shared on social networks, email and other services.

To enable this innovative camera experience, HTC developed a custom camera
that includes a best-in-class f/2.0 aperture lens and a breakthrough sensor
with UltraPixels that gather 300 percent more light than traditional
smartphone camera sensors. This new approach also delivers astounding
low-light performance and a variety of other improvements to photos and
videos. In addition, the perfect self-portrait or video is just a tap away
with an ultrawide-angle, front-facing camera, which supports 1080p video
capture. Multiaxis optical image stabilization for the rear camera also helps
ensure video footage is smooth whether stationary or on the move. HTC Zoe adds
many other features and effects, such as enhanced 360-degree panorama, time
sequencing and object removal.

HTC BoomSound
The new HTC One offers the best audio experience of any mobile phone available
today. HTC BoomSound introduces, for the first time on a phone, front-facing
stereo speakers with a dedicated amplifier and an amazing,
full-high-definition (HD) display that immerses people in music, videos, games
and the YouTube™ clips they love. Beatsaudio™ integration is enabled across
the entire experience for rich, authentic sound whether you're listening to
your favorite music, watching a YouTube video or playing a game.

HDR recording uses advanced dual microphones and audio processing to capture
clean, rich sound that is worthy of HD video footage. Phone calls sound great
on HTC One thanks to the addition of HTC Sense Voice™, which boosts the call
volume and quality in noisy environments so that conversations come through
loud and clear.

HTC Sense TV™
HTC Sense TV transforms the new HTC One into an interactive program guide and
remote control for most TVs, set-top boxes and receivers. Tapping the power of
the cloud, Sense TV makes it simple and intuitive to see what's on and find
that favorite show.

Metal Unibody Design
Wrapped in a zero-gap aluminum unibody and sporting a brilliant, 4.7-inch,
full-HD (1080p) screen,  the new HTC One features the latest Android Jelly
Bean operating system and LTE network technology to offer blazingly fast
browsing in a package that combines premium design with breakthrough build

Available in stunning silver and beautiful black, the sleek and crafted
aluminum unibody sits comfortably in the hand and showcases HTC's unique
antenna technology, which helps people achieve a crystal-clear signal. The
display also resists scratches and reduces glare, while offering incredible
468ppi resolution and rich, natural colors.

Global Availability
The new HTC One will be available globally through more than 185 mobile
operators and major retailers in more than 80 regions and countries beginning
in March. For more information and to preregister for the new HTC One, visit
